Short breaks in Devon

Devon may be the second largest county in the UK, but that doesn’t mean you need to wait until you’ve got a fortnight to explore it. You can fit plenty of rest and relaxation, food and fun into short breaks in Devon, and this beautiful part of the South West has enough to satisfy every taste.

Walkers will love stretching their legs on the network of routes that cover Dartmoor – the largest open space in southern England – and Exmoor National Park, where you can also enjoy horse riding and cycling. Or why not head to the coast and try a spot of surfing, sailing, canoeing or sea kayaking if you’re feeling brave?

Foodies are well catered for during short breaks in Devon, where local delicacies include tasty free-grazing beef and lamb, award-winning Devon Blue cheese, and Brixham’s high quality seafood, coveted by some of the best restaurants in the country.

Speaking of restaurants, if you you’re looking for something a little fancier than a pasty, a cream tea or a fish supper on the beach, Devon offers a good selection of top quality eateries. Tick the celeb chef box at Rockfish Seafood & Chips, run by Mitch Tonks, or go really up market at Michelin-starred Gidleigh Park on Dartmoor, headed up by Michael Caines MBE.

When it comes to accommodation for short breaks in Devon, Cartwheel has plenty of choice on offer too, with both bed and breakfast and self-catering options in a variety of settings – stay on a working farm or traditional campsite, in a quaint country cottage or a beachside lodge.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway, fun with the family, or a specialist trip to enjoy your favourite watersport or as much local food as you can manage, short breaks in Devon will more than match up to your expectations.
