Weekend Breaks in Devon
Devon is the ideal destination for weekend breaks: a chance to escape from urban life, enjoy a romantic getaway, chill out in style or celebrate a special occasion. Here you can recharge your batteries amidst beautiful surroundings and see the food you eat being produced in the local countryside.
Whether you're looking for a weekend break for a couple or a family group, our self catering cottages and farm-based B&B's provide the perfect solution in the heart of this rural county. A warm welcome is guaranteed at any time of the year, but weekend breaks in autumn, winter or spring allow you to appreciate all that Devon has to offer without the crowds. Out of season prices are also significantly lower than during school holidays, meaning you can recharge your batteries for less. And what can be more inviting than a cosy log fire after a bracing winter’s walk?
Farm Stay properties make a great base for trying out different activities on offer in Devon. Those on weekend breaks can enjoy golf, walking, fishing, bird watching, horse riding, cycling, surfing, kayaking, zorbing, and much more. Or you might prefer to take in some of the many cultural highlights, ranging from craft fairs, markets, steam trains and music festivals to historic houses and gardens such as RHS Rosemoor Gardens near Great Torrington, Marwood Hill Gardens and Arlington Court with its Carriage Museum near Barnstaple, Killerton near Exeter, Knightshayes near Tiverton, Castle Drogo on Dartmoor, Buckland Abbey in Yelverton, Saltram House near Plymouth and the quirky A La Ronde in Exmouth. You can even visit Morewellham Quay where the popular TV show ‘The Edwardian Farm’ was filmed.
After all this activity and sightseeing, you’re sure to have worked up a healthy appetite and a thirst – so you’ll be ready to tuck into a traditional Devon cream tea, sample some scrumpy cider or local ale, or try one of the 30 different cheeses on offer.
