Twinkling lights, roaring fireplaces and joyous seaside carols are but a stockings’ full of reasons to stay on the Devonshire coast this Christmas. The historic seaside town of Salcombe is famous for its quaint decorations and joyous atmosphere over the festive months.

Perfect for couples, families and groups, spending your Christmas holidays in Salcombe is the gift that keeps on giving. Walk off the Christmas lunch and soak up the scenery along one of the many hiking trails, or wrap up and unwind in one of the many pubs bathed in the festive spirit.

Over Christmas, the weather can on occasion be wet and windy! So, make sure to remember to pack the obligatory Christmas jumper, a warm waterproof jacket, a woolly hat and a pair of Wellington or hiking boots – and don’t forget a carrot for Rudolph!

Keep up-to-date with the best offers and events in and around Salcombe, and leave the surprises for Christmas day! Head to the app store now, it’s free and easy to use; time to get to planning your stay with Salcombe Finest.
