The Beauty of Winter in Devon and Dorset

Devon and Dorset are some of the most beautiful areas in the UK, and this is no different in Winter. Take a look closer and discover the beauty of having a winter break in Devon and Dorset. 

Winter Walks

With the breath-taking Jurassic Coast to enjoy, winter walks can provide stunning views throughout Devon and Dorset. As one of the warmest parts of England, winter along the South West coastal path provides a peaceful alternative to the bustling summer months, with all the beauty still intact.

Dog Friendly Beaches

Take advantage of the restriction drops in the winter. Many beaches allow dogs between October and May, meaning that the Winter is the perfect time to get away with the dog. Large stretches of quiet beach, all to yourself, for the dog to play, jump and run.

Christmas Markets

Sea, sand, and jingle bells. The South West has it all at Christmas time, and embraces everything that is great about that time of year. With Christmas markets starting from November, you can find everything from hand-made gifts and Crafts, local produce food to European delicacies.
