christmas & ‘Twixmas’ Breaks in North Devon

Spend your festive ho ho holidays in the perfect location.

Byron Woolacombe is hugely popular for luxury holiday breaks over Christmas and New Year. With crisp salty air, expanses of quiet beaches bathed in the low winter glow, wholesome winter walks between breath-taking coast and countryside and more twinkling lights then you could hang upon any Christmas tree nothing quite beats the romance of the festive season by the coast.

Celebrate in a traditional Gastro-Pub, drink Devonshire local ales or indulge with a tasting menu at a Michelin star restaurant, all information can be found on our page for top recommendations for the best pubs and restaurants in North Devon!

Don’t forget your pooch! As many of our properties are dog friendly even the furriest members of the family can join in on the fun and with a relaxation of dog restrictions across most of the local beaches you will have even more opportunity to explore the coastline together (or go on some epic dog friendly walks to work off those extra mince pies!)

Here’s our guide to some of our favourite things to do in North Devon in the run-up to Christmas.

restaurant recommendations

Woolacombe village offers a variety of pubs, restaurants and cafés for you to enjoy!

  • There are a number of great restaurants & pubs close to Byron. The Jube, The Tides Inn and Bar Electric are all within Woolacombe with varied menus – perhaps good for lunch out or a casual dinner. 
  • For fine dining we recommend The Beach House Restaurant & Bar which offers lunch and dinner with a menu focusing on using local produce and seafood only from the best quality suppliers and freshest ingredients available for each and every dish, all served in a cosy and laid back environment. 
  • Miss Feas in Mortehoe is a lovely to walk to get there especially as you can also explore Morte Point close by. They serve more upmarket food then your usual Woolacombe café and enjoyed by many of our guests.
  • A real must do would be ‘Curry on the Beach’ on Barricane Beach, running most nights throughout Spring/Summer it’s a very special place to sit and enjoy your dinner! You do need to bring your own tipple if drinking and a picnic blanket but it’s a wonderful way to enjoy the sunset and a really good authentic curry!
  • Or if you prefer why not make the most of your luxury apartment and truly relax in the hands of a private local chef with Coastal Cooks!
