Autumn Breaks in Devon

21 October 2019

Autumn is a magical time of year and there really is no better time to appreciate the beautiful countryside, colours of the rolling hills and windswept beaches in Devon.

Outside of the hustle and bustle of the school holidays, the autumn is the perfect time for walkers, nature lovers, foodies and dog owners. As well as being an under-rated time of year to get away, lets not forget, autumn is a much cheaper time to get away than the peak of summer, so also great for a thrifty pocket.

Autumn retreats

1. Mild temperatures

There’s always something quite comforting about putting on a warm jumper and your favourite pair of leather boots after the summer months. Wrap up warm and head out for a glorious walk in the autumn breeze and take in the breathtaking scenery.

2. Rolling Devon hills

As the autumn arrives, the leaves change into their glorious jewel-like colours, gold and red. Nothing quite beats a long walk, with some fantastic countryside and river valley views to enjoy. 

At Cofton enjoy stunning views across Haldon Forest, a stumble through the private woodlands to Eastdon and a muddy stroll in our dog walking field. 

If exploring is more your thing, you don’t have to go far for some true Devon gems, from the gorgeous blue flag Dawlish Warren beach, to the Estuary views across to Topsham and of course let’s not forget two stunning national parks right on our doorstep, with Exmoor and Dartmoor.

3. Strolls on uncrowded beaches

Beaches in the autumn may not have the same appeal as scorching summer days. But do not underestimate the wild beauty of South Devon’s beautiful coastlines take-on during the autumn months. This time of year welcomes a wealth of beautiful uncrowded beaches, with some fantastic quiet spots to read your book, take in the scenery or enjoy a hot chocolate with the sand beneath your toes.

4. Dog friendly Devon

South Devon is the perfect playground for you and your four legged friend. Best of all, in autumn, all of our beaches become dog-friendly with no restricted access, meaning you can really maximise your beach time.

Our dog friendly accommodation provides the perfect base for you and your favourite four legged friend. New to Cofton for 2019 are purpose built dog friendly caravans and specially re-renovated cottages on the Easton Estate, the perfect home from home for you and your dog.

It’s a compact city that is easy to explore on foot, it’s steeped in roman history, filled to the brim with vibrant coffee shops and places to eat and drink and has a fantastic assortment of shops including fantastic independent retailers.
