Festive markets, twinkly Christmas lights, roaring fires, winter walks and meeting Santa. Christmas in South Devon is a magical time.

Winter walks

Exploring the miles of coastal paths and footpaths in South Devon isn’t just a summer activity. The landscape is forever changing with the seasons meaning that no two visits or walks are ever the same. A winter break really lets you enjoy the beauty of the region, wake up to a crisp winter’s morning with the landscape covered in frost or enjoy the feeling of a brisk wind on your face, all helping to make you feel connected to the glorious landscape that’s all around you. After a hard day exploring you’ll be ready to pop in to one of the many village pubs or local cafes to sample some of the great local produce being served up and enjoy a cosy table next to a roaring fire.

Wherever you’re planning on visiting during December you won’t be far from a Christmas market, Santa’s grotto or festive event. With so many great events taking place in the lead up to Christmas you’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding where to visit Father Christmas or picking which market to head to in order to pick up those final presents.
