Christmas & new year holidays

Christmas and New Year in Devon

Whether you are looking for a holiday cottage where the whole family can get together or where you can celebrate the New Year with your closest friends, we have a wonderful selection of holiday cottages in Devon for the perfect venue for Christmas or New Year.  Many owners even go to the trouble of providing a tree and a few decorations, and we can confirm this if you wish to know more before booking.

Changeover day

To ensure that your Christmas or New Year holiday is stress free, the changeover days for Christmas and New Year are chosen and set for some specific reasons and they may not be the normal Friday and Saturday changeovers that are advertised for the rest of the year.

The reason we choose specific changeover days for this period is to guarantee that guests arriving or departing on key holiday dates such as Christmas Day, Boxing Day or any subsequent bank holidays benefit from our full office cover and have the support of our team in the unfortunate case of any issues or questions.

Final checks
