Big Holiday Houses For Winter Breaks in Devon – From Just £37.50 Per Night Each!*

Our big holiday houses for winter breaks in Devon are the perfect solution for anyone looking to get away for whatever reason when the weather’s not so promising and the days are shorter. Whether it’s a family celebration, a hen or stag weekend, a winter party or a get together in the run up to Christmas, our luxury large group accommodation in Devon is guaranteed to give you a fantastic winter break.

Right now we’re still enjoying some lovely autumn sunshine but it won’t be long before the nights really start to draw in, the clocks go back and with it come chillier days and nights. Ah, but the beauty of our big holiday houses for winter breaks in Devon is that it really doesn’t matter what the weather is like because you’ll have everything you need to keep everyone smiling. Think of it as a world of your own where even if it’s blowing a gale you can all have happy times together, with plenty to keep all ages occupied.

Our luxury holiday houses in Devon are made for getting people together – for whatever reason. For those happy celebrations like birthdays and anniversaries, for hen and stag weekends, for corporate away days and team building, and for special times spent catching up with friends and relations. We all know how demanding and difficult it can be trying to organise a big Christmas and let’s face it, some of us would prefer quieter festivities in our own homes. A pre or post Christmas get together is the perfect answer, chance to catch up, unwind, feast together and have a whole lot of fun – just the kind of thing our big holiday houses for winter breaks in Devon are for.

With a lot of people working from home these days it’s not so problematic getting time off work to spend a few days elsewhere, and our large group holiday cottages are very spacious, so if you have to bring the laptop along and attend a few Zoom meetings, it can be done; you’ll find a quiet space in the house and have reliable internet so it’s something you don’t need to worry about.

Foxhill Lodge sleeps 10 guests in five bedrooms and has availability throughout the winter months starting from just over £43 per night each for a 3 night break, which is pretty amazing as you don’t just get a large and luxuriously homely house to stay in – you also get your own private hot tub, a cosy Scandi style BBQ lodge, outdoor table tennis and a children’s play area. If you book your stay for October or November you can request exclusive use of the outdoor heated pool at a small extra cost – all that for far less than you’d pay for a good quality hotel, and you won’t have to go down to breakfast with strangers!

The setting is fantastic, tucked away on a secluded farm in the Blackdown Hills not far from the Devon village of Hemyock. Perfect for wrapping up warm and getting out for country walks followed by lunch in a little pub out round the lanes; wholesome home cooked food, local ales and ciders, a roaring log fire to keep you warm. Our favourites are The Culm Valley Inn and The Ashill Inn, both less than 2 miles away. If you prefer to stay in and cook, you’ll find plenty of places nearby selling locally produced meat, veg and just about everything else you can think of, or if you’re celebrating something special, treat yourselves, hire one of our recommended caterers to come in and create a scrumptious winter feast for you.

Wayside is a contemporary country house just a short drive down the hill from Foxhill Lodge; it sleeps 13 in 5 bedrooms and is an absolute corker when it comes to big holiday houses for winter breaks in Devon because it has a covered and heated pool you can use anytime of year, a hot tub and sauna, a games room, BBQ lodge and children’s play area. With prices starting from just £37.50 per person per night for a 4 night break that’s not to be scoffed at – that’s an absolute bargain! The only thing is you’ll have to be quick because there is only limited availability left at Wayside.
