Yep, it is that time of year again, Autumn has begun!  But rather than the usual slow down we normally see at this time of year, we are seeing a new trend of last-minute winter bookings!  One thing is for sure, winter holidays in 2020/2021 look set to become a real staple for the British staycationers. Many people are choosing to:  1. stay in the UK and 2. select a holiday in Devon or Cornwall.

Not only that but bookings are also being made further in advance with the British public wanting to secure dates for their next holiday in their preferred property as many missed out this year due to the rush of people wishing to get away after being in a Lock-down through the spring. The importance of a holiday and escaping to the coast has been highlighted to many families in a world where we are all dealing with the current global pandemic, COVID-19.  Some families have already holidayed with us several times this year!

Our properties in North Devon are all excellently positioned to deliver fantastic winter holidays, with many small and larger properties still available to book throughout December and January. In this blog we will be looking at our 'top pick' properties perfectly set up for those looking to get away in the dramatic and chillier months during Winter. Whether it is Christmas with the family or a romantic cottage perfect for a couple, Ocean-Cottages has everything you will need to make your winter holiday the best staycation.


The Perfect Large properties for Christmas

-          We all love and remember those Christmas' with the family together, opening presents, putting mince pies out for Santa and carrots out for the reindeer. Now for many this will not be possible with the introduction of the rule of 6 by the Government. However, why not change it up this year? and have the same experience but on holiday at one of our fabulous larger luxury cottages. The extra space makes social distancing more implementable and allows your immediate family ample room to spread out, before coming together to share the holiday spirit
