Your Holiday Cottage in Devon at Christmas.

Christmas at Pebblebed Holiday Cottages, Devon 

Start a tradition, choose quality time together this Christmas. Spend Christmas with the ones you love in a comfortable home from home, or book later in the year and give the gift of quality time together.

Remove the Christmas stress for the host, celebrate Christmas and New Year away in a converted barn, make the most of the large open plan living and dining areas, and have a Dinner Delivery Service.
Burrows available for Christmas booking. This is the perfect way to celebrate this festive period in your home away from home.

Curl up by the fire with a book, gather round your favorite board games, relax in the hot tub with a glass of your favorite bubbles, you decide. Sit back, relax, unwind, and let the festive feeling fill you with cheer.

Get the adrenaline going on Christmas day; many of the local beaches have a very popular Christmas Day Swim. There are many local beaches to choose from, golden sand, pebbles, red cliffs or white cliffs, etc. Follow the Christmas Day, Boxing Day, or New Years Day dip in the sea with a warming bubble in your private hot tub or snuggle up by the fire.
