Autumn & Winter Breaks on the English Riviera

Welcome to the Autumn and Winter Escapes website for the English Riviera - the one stop shop for where to stay, things to do and what’s on during the colder months, with special offers and details on Christmas and New Year packages.

There’s so much to do along the coastline, with 22 miles of walks along the South West Coast Path, leisurely long weekends beachcombing along pretty beaches and spectacular views from the towering cliffs at Berry Head National Nature Reserve. Escape the summer hoardes and enjoy a very different side to this great seaside resort.

Popular attractions include the Winter Wonderland at the Babbacombe Model Village, where the famous miniature scenes are transformed into a stunning winter landscape, with picture-postcard thatched villages and life-like snowdrifts on the tiny streets. From dusk, thousands of lights twinkle and sparkle turning this wonderland into a magical world.

Agatha Christie’s holiday home at Greenway is open between Christmas and New Year together with Coleton Fishacre, another beautiful National Trust property – and it’s a wonderful time to discover the houses decked out in all their festive finery.

And this year, for the first time, the Dartmouth Steam Railway is open in November and December on Thursdays and Saturdays in the build up to its Santa Express trains and Yuletide service.For the evening, there are plenty of theatres offering some great productions for all ages including some superb panto, plus a choice of fine dining, family friendly eateries or bistros specializing in seafood with the freshest fish landed daily at Brixham Fish Market. 

Special Offers

The English Riviera offers great value for money all year round, especially compared to other seaside resorts in the UK. But in the autumn and winter the deals and special offers you can get in South Devon’s Beautiful Bay are almost too good to be true. Combined with naturally lower accommodation rates at this time of year, it’s easy to have a fantastic holiday on the English Riviera without breaking the bank (and leaving more money in the Christmas present budget!).

Accommodation is obviously one of the larger costs of any holiday, and during the autumn and winter the English Riviera’s many hotels, B&Bs, guest houses and self catering options like to give guests a little something extra. Many attractions in the area are also keen to give something back to visitors, in the form of special discounts, lower prices, and even ‘kids go free’ offers – a particularly effective money saver if you have a large family.When planning your holiday, make sure you browse this website and keep an eye out for free night special offers, room discounts and other great holiday deals for off peak holidaymakers.

Whatever you choose, there’s something for everyone in this premier resort, and hundreds of great reasons to book this autumn or winter.
