From cosy pubs galore to winter beach walks, there’s plenty to enjoy in Devon at Christmas. We list 19 reasons you should come visit us this December.

Devon looks absolutely beautiful even in the dark depths of winter,

when the seas are stormy…

… and the skies are grey.

The weather outside might be frightful…

… but our cosy pubs are truly delightful.

We’ve got wonderful winter walks in abundance. The views are truly breathtaking…

… and you never know who you might bump into along the way!

If you’re looking for Rudolph and his friends, you’ll find them scoffing at Dartmoor Zoo.

Our pooches just love it here in the winter.

The beaches are empty and there’s plenty of room to run around and enjoy the fresh sea breeze!

We sure know how to do a festive lighting display. From kissing polar bears in Exeter

… to the colourful cobbled streets of Clovelly

Devon is truly sparkling this Christmas.

Our local bakeries produce some of the tastiest mince pies in the South West.

And don’t forget to stop for a festive Devon cream tea!

There are plenty of carol services if you fancy a seasonal singalong.

And we Devonians have decorated our houses beautifully, just for you.

So if you’re looking for a cosy getaway to Devon this Christmas…

We’ve lit the fire and will welcome you with open arms!
