Not everyone wants to take a break at the weekend. If you’ve got some holiday leave to use up or your wedding anniversary falls on a Wednesday this year, why not beat the weekend crowds and take a midweek break in South Devon? If you’re self-employed then midweek breaks are often easier to arrange, and you can take advantage of some great midweek bargains from some of the region’s top accommodation providers.
South Devon is easy to get to and midweek breaks offer a complete change of pace from the day-to-day grind. Even if you live close to South Devon, there are enough hidden gems and tranquil locations for you to enjoy a complete change of scenery and get to grips with new sights. And during midweek you won’t have to queue for hours to get into the popular attractions either.
You’ll find that many accommodation providers in South Devon offer cheaper deals for midweek breaks. These tend to be during the off-peak seasons rather than during peak holiday times, but don’t let this put you off. Many of the region’s attractions are open throughout the year and South Devon is renowned for activities that are always accessible such as walking, cycling, climbing and wildlife spotting. The region is full of fabulous restaurants that are guaranteed to make any midweek break truly memorable, and it’s a lot easier to get a table on a Tuesday night than on a Saturday. The Cary Arms Inn, for example, offers an off-peak ‘Gastro Getaway’, which gives guests the opportunity to combine a two-night stay in luxury accommodation with a sumptuous three-course meal at a local Michelin-starred restaurant.
If you’re looking for self-catering midweek breaks then Bovisand Lodge Estate could be the answer. Here you can hire luxury apartments from as little as £189 per week. Carswell Farm Cottages offer midweek breaks that allow you to stay in romantic accommodation for three nights at a fraction of the usual cost. Close to a beach, this is also the home of the Well Hung Meat Company so you can sample some local fare at its very best.
