Clutter-Free Christmas Gift Ideas

This year, as a family, we have decided to ditch the unnecessary gifts and book time away – after all, that is what we as a family have missed during the last 2 years.


Here are some of our top Clutter-Free Christmas Gift Ideas.


Sit back and have the time to relax with your favourites.

        • Fruit Baskets
        • Flowers
        • Chocolates
        • Coffee
        • Local Wines
        • Cheese
        • Desserts
Both Darts Farm and Knights Farm Shop are excellent for local hampers.

Festive Swimming

All around the coastline people celebrate Christmas time with a dip in the sea.  Fancy it yourselves…

The costume choices are endless too, from traditional Santa hats and Christmas jumpers to crowd-shockingly small swimming trunks and mankinis!

Once you’ve been in the sea head back to Apple Mill or Burrows, jump in the hot tub (hot chocolate or fizz is optional) warm-up, and get ready for a relaxing Christmas Day accompanied by the wood burner and a large social open plan kitchen, dining area, and living room.

Christmas 2021 is booked for both Apple Mill and Burrows at Pebblebed Cottages; we are now taking 2022 Christmas bookings.

Book yourself with a party of up to 6, 8 or 14 in for your luxury self-catered holiday in Devon. Good friends, great things to do and a fabulous holiday.
