Autumn Breaks in Devon

Autumn is a magical time of year and there really is no better place than Cofton for Autumn breaks in Devon, its 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 for a break 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.
