Winter Breaks Devon
Snuggling up in front of a roaring log fire, exploring a winter landscape of unparalleled beauty or Christmas shopping in the vibrant heart of Torquay – all of this can be yours on a winter break in South Devon and the English Riviera. This unique and beautiful part of the country brings you year round entertainment, accommodation and events that are guaranteed to change your mind about when you take your holidays!
Slow down the pace of life
Rather than facing the crowds during July and August, a winter break in South Devon lets you slow down the pace a little, sit back and relax. Unlike other tourist destination, Torquay, Brixham and Babbacombe don’t shut up shop when the summer crowds head home, but offer an all year destination that’s full of life, excitement and fabulous facilities.
Award winning accommodation, five star luxury hotels and traditional Devon cottages are all available for you to relax in. Why not spend Christmas away from home this year in a wonderful thatched Devon Longhouse in Paignton? While our mild climate may not guarantee you a white Christmas, the welcome will certainly guarantee you a warm one!
Christmas in Torquay
A vibrant shopping centre and plenty of festivals, events and happenings right through the festive season makes Torquay an exciting and different winter destination. Wander through the lanes and boutiques of the town or head further afield to enjoy the winter landscape of South Devon in all its glory. Snowy peaks on Dartmoor remind you that yes, it is winter, but our mild microclimate means that you’ll never face the full fury of the winter weather.
We like to celebrate Christmas in style in South Devon, so you’ll be entertained by the Royal Marines band in Torquay and for the younger members of the family, Santa will be making special visits to Brixham, Babbacombe and Paignton throughout the season. And once the festive season is over, we start all over again with our spectacular New Year celebrations.
So if you’d like a winter break with a difference, simply browse our website for more details on accommodation availability, events and booking details and experience for yourself a winter break you’ll never forget!
