With golden, sandy beaches and a rugged, dramatic coastline classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, North Devon is the perfect place to soak up some scenic beauty and bracing sea air over Christmas. There’s also plenty of festive fun and entertainment on offer at our hotel.
We’ll stay at the Durrant House Hotel, situated near the historical port of Bideford with views over the Torridge estuary. All the en-suite rooms offer TV and tea and coffee-making facilities while other hotel features include a spa (treatments at an extra cost), gym, bar and restaurant.

Christmas Eve – Barnstaple
We spend half a day in Barnstaple, the capital of north Devon. Thought to be the oldest borough in England, the town is a wonderful mix of old and new and provides plenty of shopping opportunities from independent boutiques to high street names. After lunch back at the hotel, there’s an afternoon session of bingo accompanied by tea and biscuits. This evening after dinner, we enjoy some live entertainment with optional fancy dress.
Christmas Day is a lovely day of leisure and celebration, with our hotel providing a hearty Christmas lunch with all the trimmings. After the Queen’s Speech, join in the ‘guess the weight of the cake’ competition followed by an afternoon tea dance with Christmas cake. In the evening, we enjoy the chef’s gala buffet after which we’ll be entertained with music and dancing.
Boxing Day – Ilfracombe
A half day on the coast beckons as we visit Ilfracombe, home to stunning beaches, a seafront promenade and the largest harbour on the north Devon coast. We return to the hotel for lunch before enjoying a Christmas quiz with tea, coffee and mince pies in the afternoon. After dinner, we round off our evening with more entertainment.
