Short Breaks in South Devon

Short Break Self-Catering Holidays in Torquay, Shaldon, Brixham and South Devon

Can't Stay a Full Seven Nights? No Problem!

Here at Discovery Hoilday Homes, we're great believers in the idea that everyone needs a break - after a hard day's work it's important to rest, and there's no better therapy than a hoilday by the coast or in the countryside. Luckily for us, Devon boasts what we think is the very best of both!

Fitting holiday in around work can be a challenge - we know that! That's why we encourage all of our properties to accept short breaks from as little as three nights. Off-peak short breaks are accepted and can be booked online in over 95% of our accommodation in South Devon, and with so much on offer, it's the perfect place to visit for that relaxing weekend break, a mid-week visit, or whatever works best for you!

Why Visit Devon Off-Peak?

This is a question we get asked all the time - why visit in June or November when you could be relaxing in the summer?! And our answer is simple - Devon is beautiful all year round, and even if you've got the kids with you, South Devon has fabulous indoor and outdoor attractions to suit everyone. Take a stroll along one of the sections of the South West Coastal Path, enjoy autumnal picnics in countyside villages such as Cockington and Churscombe, or enjoy a daytrip to one of our huge range of attractions, whether you're into National Trust properties or want to let the little ones run free in one of the kids playhouses.

And when you're booking off-peak, you really get the most out of your holiday home, cottage or apartment. From enjoying romantic winter nights cosied up by the open fire, to pulling back the curtains and taking in the dramatic coastline, with waves crashing against the cliffs and winds whistling over rooftops. And when you're ready for something to eat, you still have the choice of popping out for a bite in the local pubs and restaurants, ordering a takeaway right to your doorstep, or taking self-catering at it's best and cooking a delicious home meal!

Can I take a short break in the School Holidays?

It's always worth asking us - whilst some of our holiday homes won't allow this, we do try to be as flexible as possible in accommodating our guests' needs. Whilst it may not always be possible straight away to book your self-catering break, we can always take your details and let you know if short breaks do open up for your chosen property nearer to the time. If you're booking last minute then the majority of our homeowners are happy to be flexible, and will accept as little as three nights.

How Much Does a Short Break Cost?

This varies from property to property, and for the length of stay. Some of our holiday homes offer "nightly pricing" where the same price will apply per night, no matter how many nights you book, whilst others will offer a percentage discount from the full weekly price for any breaks less than this.

How Do I Book a Short Break?

Booking a short break is easy - you book it in the same way you'd book any other holiday on our website! You can start off with our quick-search box on our homepage, or if you know the name or reference of the holiday home that you're looking to book then simply search in the box above! If you're having any trouble at all, then just call one of our friendly team on 01803 213814 and select option 1, and we'll talk you through the process or help you to book over the phone.
