Short breaks

Re-charge your batteries with a short break in Devon

Escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy a few days at a slower pace of life with a long weekend or short break in one of our cottages in Devon.  Devon is perfectly placed for a short break - you can leave work on a Friday afternoon and be enjoying a warming meal in the village pub or curled up beside a roaring fire in your holiday cottage, by early evening.  With excellent road and rail links to the county you can even leave the car at home with some of the most rural villages located near to a mainline train station.  Of course there are also substantial benefits to travelling out of season; prices are lower, beaches are deserted, restaurants offer great winter deals and the roads are quiet - apart from the occasional tractor! Even the weather can be at its best in spring and autumn!

Most of our cottages accept short breaks outside of the main season. There are some periods where short breaks are unlikely to be accepted, especially in larger properties and these periods are as follows:

October half term, Christmas and New Year, February half term, Easter holidays, May Spring Bank Holiday and School Summer Holidays.

Between Easter and October, most owners prefer not to accept a short break unless the booking is made within two weeks of arrival, however there are exceptions to these rules, so its always best to check with us direct.

Short breaks are normally calculated as follows, however some owners do specify weekend and mid week rents, and some owners prefer only to reduce by 20%.   We do also have some cottages that offer 2 nightly rates. 

As a very rough guide, shorter breaks are calculated as follows:

3 or 4 night breaks - 30% discount on the full weekly rental

5 night breaks - 20% discount on the full weekly rental

6 night breaks are normally charged at the same price as the full weekly rental, however this may be at the owner’s discretion and we will check if they will consider any discounts.

Short breaks will need to be booked over the phone as each property is different and we need to check with the owner. If you have any queries and for confirmation of prices contact us on 01326 573808 and we will be delighted to help you with your short break in Devon.
