Christmas Mini-Breaks

Does taking a break away from all the madness over the Christmas or New Year period sound appealing? Yes, we know that feeling!

We’ve taken a few of the offers available for you to look at, from Dog-Friendly Hotels to Gorgeous Guesthouse, Cosy Cottages or Yurtcamp to a Castle.

Once you’re here, there’s so much to enjoy, have a look at some of our Circular Walks to work off the gorgeous food you’ll enjoy over the festive period, or try a meal out at one of the superb restaurants, cafes, tea-rooms and farm-shops on Delicious Dartmoor.

While you’re out and about, it’s fascinating to visit some of our incredible sites of archaeological interest, we’ve listed some of the better known locations for you on our Archaeology page.

Whatever you choose to do to enjoy your mini-break at Christmas, we hope you enjoy every minute …  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
