Spring has well and truly arrived in the Blackdown Hills and the mood is high! We have spring offers on our large group accommodation in Devon with swimming pools, hot tubs, games rooms, play areas and BBQ lodges, so take a look and grab yourselves a bargain!
We are so lucky to live and work in Devon’s beautiful Blackdown Hills; it’s a very special place to be, especially now that spring has arrived, so we have spring offers on large group accommodation in Devon for 7 nights stays, mid-week breaks and weekends away. To spend time in such a spectacular area is to truly let go, to relax and enjoy precious time with friends and family and what’s great about our luxury large group holiday houses is that there really is something for all ages, with amazing features like swimming pools and swim spas, hot tubs, saunas, games rooms, play areas for children and cosy Nordic style BBQ lodges.
It's a wonderful time of year to treat yourselves to a very special break with your nearest and dearest or to take advantage of our spring offers for a last minute weekend away. The air is so fresh and clear, the sun is shining and to be honest, it feels a little like summer; the birds are singing, the flowers are out in the hedgerows and we’ve even noticed a few early butterflies dancing about. Gone are the dismal grey skies and the rain that seemed like it would never end – day after day of it was a bit too much but now it’s lifted and everything seems so much lighter. It makes the views here even more incredible because you can see for miles and miles across the unspoilt landscape of wide open fields, softly rolling hills and wooded slopes.
Everything is opening up now, which is great; it means you can go and explore whilst you’re here, discover new places, see new things. You can walk as far as you like in these hills and wind up at one of the friendly country pubs for a hearty lunch and a superb pint of local ale or cider; time to kick back and slow down – just what a break in the country is all about. Venture out and visit some of the fabulous family attractions in these parts, like Crealy Theme Park, Wildwood Escot and The Donkey Sanctuary. The beaches of the Jurassic Coast aren’t far either and it’s plenty warm enough for a stroll along the shore or on the clifftops; round it off with lunch in a seafront restaurant or fish and chips as the tide comes in. All those simple pleasures that make a holiday in Devon extra special and go a long way to stocking up on magical memories.
Spring breaks are good because it’s a little quieter out of season, before the pace steps up for summer, though here in the sticks, we have to be honest, it’s always peaceful and you feel like you have a world of your own. Maybe there’s a birthday to celebrate, or an anniversary – what more reason do you need to head off for a few days in the country with your loved ones? Plan it well, order a cake in advance, book up one of our tried and tested local caterers (see Extras) to come and cook you a scrumptious feast – or have a barbecue. It may come in a little chilly in the evenings but hey, we have those lovely BBQ lodges and there’s plenty of room for you all to gather there to sizzle steaks and sausages.
Fingers crossed the weather will stay fine now, but even if we do have the odd showery day, when you stay with Blackdown Luxury Lettings it doesn’t matter because there’s so much inside to keep you smiling. Get in the pool and splash about, take 5 in the sauna, have a round of pool or table tennis, or snuggle up for a family movie night with big bowls of popcorn to share. If you’ve got work to do, no problem, our big accommodation in Devon has wifi so you can find a quiet corner to set up your laptop and away you go. When you’ve finished, go and join in the fun.
And just think. You don’t have to share anything with other people; the house and all its fantastic features will be all yours for the whole of your stay, which is why it beats staying in a hotel. No going down to breakfast in a room full of strangers, no only having your room to try to relax in, no going off to the pool clutching your gear and sharing showers – everything is ALL YOURS!
What more can we say! Other than that we can’t wait to meet you and have our gorgeous houses ready and waiting for you. The only thing is, we know from experience that these kind of offers don’t hang around for long, so get in quick and book your Spring break as soon as you can.
Don’t forget – from early July our Dreamview Shepherds Huts will be ready for guests!
