Last Minute Breaks
If you’re watching the pennies but still want a break away from the daily grind, a cost-saving option could be to keep a lookout for some great last minute breaks in South Devon. You don’t need to fly off abroad for sun, sea and sand, and with some fantastic last minute deals available all year round, South Devon is quickly earning a name for itself as a last minute break Mecca.
Last minute availability is often the result of cancellations, so it’s possible to find some pretty favourable prices if you’re prepared to just throw everything in the car and go. Some companies even go so far as to set aside and advertise late availability special offers and deals, offering you great deals on accommodation at a fraction of the original cost.
The last minute
Leave it to the last minute and you can find some great breaks in South Devon. While your options may be slightly limited during peak season, there’s still plenty to choose from that will appeal to you and the family. Whether you’re looking for last minute breaks as a surprise for a loved one or as a way to keeping your holiday costs right down, flexibility is the key to success. If you don’t mind a little compromise on how close to the beach you are or whether you’ve got sea views from your apartment, you’ve got a good chance of finding something extra special and extra cheap in South Devon.
Don’t just leave it until the summer, either. Last minute breaks are typically easier to find in off-peak seasons. There’s plenty to see and do in the autumn and winter months and it’s not difficult to find warm and cosy accommodation for small or large groups. Establishments such as the Garway Lodge Guest House offer ‘Winter Warmer’ last minute breaks and even special Valentine’s Weekend prices. The Buckland Tout-Saints Hotel in Kingsbridge has special events running during the off-peak season, and if you’re a bit of a foodie, from January through to March you can indulge in a two-night Gastronomic Break, and try some of their superb dishes from their two AA Rosette-rated Queen Anne Restaurant.
