Devon is known for its charm and serenity which is one of the reasons why it's loved by the many people who visit. We all know Devon has its breathtaking views and beaches, but there is so much more to be discovered. So if you are looking for reasons to visit during the new year, look no further as we have compiled a list on why you should consider visiting Devon for your next escape away. 

Hassle-free holidays 

Staycations are becoming more and more popular throughout recent years for many different reasons, the main one being that it is much less stressful to book a staycation than a vacation abroad. From planning the journey, months of preparation and packing and unpacking for a holiday abroad, sometimes you forget that you’re actually booking the trip to relax. When the weather is at its best, booking a staycation can be exactly the same as a vacation abroad, just without the stressful preparation and with all the home from home comforts you could possibly need.

There are many unmissable locations around North Devon providing the most breathtaking of views, ranging from scenic views of the Atlantic Coast to beautiful country fields. North Devon is filled with fascinating history and natural beauty, all of which make North Devon the prettiest place to visit whatever the weather. 

Our favorites include Saunton Sands Beach, Clovelly village and the astonishing Valley Of The Rocks.

The Devon weather

There is never a guarantee when it comes to the British weather, that being said Devon has the mildest UK weather during the winter season so the weather can be much milder than other places across the country. During the summer months, Devon is just as good as visiting abroad, with the sun shining and the abundance of beaches to sunbathe and relax at; each near a beautiful intimate village. Sometimes it can be difficult to differentiate between being abroad and being in the UK.
