Devon is ready to welcome you this Twixmas
The winter season can always be a bit disheartening after the excitement of summer. Many holidaymakers struggle to find a reason to book holidays down in Devon; the weather being number one.
However, not many people know that even during these winter seasons there is still so much to see and do in Devon, and as always, we love to give our guests a reason to visit whatever the weather.
Our annual “ Twixmas Breaks Deal” is back and we are ready to welcome you. What better way to make use of the time than to book a self-indulgent trip away to the countryside? Give yourself a treat after the Christmas madness! Look at what Devon has to entice you to visit, even in winter!
Surfing & Beaches
In Devon, we are lucky enough to not have one but multiple beaches all at a reasonable distance from our hotels that you can enjoy. Beaches aren’t just for summer! The breathtaking landscape is the most wonderful way to take all of North Devon in. Take a soothing walk whilst watching the sun slowly set along the coast and listen to the waves crash along the shore - doesn’t that sound wonderful?

Clovelly village oozes charm with a ‘trapped in the past’ feel. The town is surrounded by cobbled streets which lead to the beautiful harbour.

Stroll along the beautiful streets of Clovelly and learn all about the history of the village.
