Christmas & New Year Cottages

If you’re planning a Christmas getaway we have plenty of luxury holiday cottages in Devon to choose from. It’s a bit like unwrapping the presents. Once you’ve opened one, you’ll want to open them all. We think you’ll be equally spoilt for choice with our cottages and will want to come back to Devon, again and again.

For most of us, Christmas tends to be the time of year that we get together with our families whereas New Year seems to be when we catch up with our friends and celebrate into the night. It’s that magical time when we reflect on the past year and make new resolutions as to how we can make the next one even better.

Perhaps your family is spread far and wide and you’ve ended up with the very important job of putting a pin in the map and finding the perfect place. Devon has always been a popular choice for a Christmas getaway. Whether you’re looking for a 2-bed holiday cottage, a 3-bed apartment or large detached holiday cottages to rent in Devon, by using our helpful filter system you’ll find one that suits your family size. Will everybody need their own bathroom? How about sleeping arrangements – are you after Kingsize bedrooms, doubles, twin rooms, singles or even bunks? Where will you put the Christmas tree? Do you want a holiday home with a large hall for all those muddy boots or cosy corners for burying your head in a book when you want a quiet moment or two? Each of our properties have detailed descriptions of the accommodation available to make it as easy as possible for you choose your ideal Christmas holiday home.

Christmas Holiday Cottages in Devon with Large Kitchens

The kitchen is the heart of the home and this is never so true as it is at Christmas. Mostly, the festive season revolves around eating so we think this is a key ingredient when choosing your Devon retreat. Many of our properties feature new or refurbished kitchens making it almost a treat to cook in rather than a chore! Just imagine yourself bustling around a spacious kitchen of your dreams cooking a fabulously delicious Christmas lunch for your family with all the trimmings. And, just imagine if you had enough worktop for every single pot, pan, plate and serving dish… Choose from those with a traditional homely feel or a more contemporary sleek look. No matter what your taste and style, the beauty of going on holiday is that you get to choose!

Country Cottages in Devon near a pub

If your idea of getting away from it all at Christmas is to hang up the apron, then perhaps your dream festive getaway is to book one of our welcoming cottages within walking distance of a pub and take the day off from cooking. In fact, if they do breakfast and lunch then you might get away with not cooking much at all! Whether you’re after a cosy corner table or are a large group looking for a pub with a restaurant so you can be waited on hand and foot, we’d recommend booking ahead in case everybody has the same idea. Some of our properties also feature a warming woodburner or even an alluring real log fire to really add to the festive feel, as well as toast your toes. Just add great company, some sparkly Christmas decoration and… relax and enjoy.

Celebrate New Year in a Holiday Cottage in Devon

Out with the old and in with new. New Year is a time for reflection and marks the passing of time like no other day of the year. It’s a time for endings and new beginnings. Whether you’re spending it with your loved one, your four-legged friend, your family or your friends – make it extra special this year and book one of our welcoming Devon holiday cottages

Devon is especially beautiful in the winter, whatever the weather. Come prepared with cosy coats and wellies for all. The woods and walks could be crisp underfoot with clear blue skies above and, if you’re early risers, you can wrap up and get out to see the sun rising through frosty trees. It will make it all worth getting up early whether you’re a budding photographer or just want to enjoy the calm before the rest of the world wakes up. After a hearty breakfast in your luxury holiday cottage you can head to one of the nearest beaches – they’re not just for summer. Long lazy days can be spent walking along some of the most beautiful beaches in Devon discovering sheltered coves or rediscovering new ones while sampling coffee and cake from one of the cafes dotted in and around the coastline and nearby towns and villages.

What a wonderful way to spend your New Year break and, if you book one of our cottages with a hot tub, you can relax and unwind after lovely long days exploring all that Devon has to offer with your favourite people.
