2017: The Year of the Devonshire Family Holiday

Eight Reasons To Take a Family Holiday in Devon this Year…

Here at Langstone Cliff, we’re not shy of making happy family holidays a reality. In fact hundreds of families flock down to stay with us year after year which means thankfully we must be doing something right. While not everyone will choose to stay with us, we thought we’d pull together eight reasons to bring your family on holiday to Devon this year and make a memory for life.

Here are a handful of our wonderfully wonderful reasons to pull that suitcase out of the loft, pack up the car and head down to the Devonshire coast this summer:

1. The Feel of Things

What makes Devon better than Cornwall or Blackpool or Brighton or Bournemouth? Devon is made up of lots of small family resorts and towns which feel like home. And by home we mean Devon just has that innate feeling of warmth and familiarity which not only feels new and refreshing but tasteful and unique.

2. It’s Affordable for all

While you can go all out and experience 5* luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants and book expensive tours and outings in Devon, our popular tourist destination has a variety of both free and paid attractions, affordable for any  family looking to make a happy memory or two.

3. It has the Attraction of Attractions

The region is the happy home to a wealth of family attractions in South Devon from adventure parks such as Crealy, Woodlands Park and Paignton Zoo; oh and a few must visit lama enclosures (like we said, Devon certainly is unique). Take a read of our Top Five Attraction in South Devon here for some inspiration.

4. Things to do in Devon

People often regard Devon as a seasonal place, which perhaps for sunshine and bikini weather is imperatively true. For those who perhaps aren’t so keen on showing skin, Devon is a bustling haven all year round with exploration and leisure retreats in winter, spring and autumn time which make for just as special a trip as in the popular summer months.

5. The Best Beaches

Devon’s beaches are perfect for a winter stroll or for a shot of achieving that sun kissed bikini body in the warmer months of the year. Our nearest beach is Dawlish and has been noted as one of the best beaches not only in Devon but in the UK.

6. Heaps of Heritage

Devon history started back in the Roman age with some artefacts hinting at its province even earlier than that in the Stone Age. This means it is a real gem for those budding historians or for the more touristy trips to see some iconic landmarks. Take a read of our Top Four Castles in South Devon and see for yourself the impeccable heritage Devon has to offer.

7. Fabulous Food & Drink

More important than ever, food; and Devon’s capital (so to speak) is the bustling city of Exeter. Only a few miles from our sea view hotel in South Devon, Exeter was crowned in 2016 as one of biggest foodie hotspots in the UK. With a variety of restaurants in Devon now is a better time than ever to get active in the day and refuel and flatter those taste buds in the evening.

8. It’s our 70th Year Anniversary

This year is a particularly big year for us at the Langstone Cliff. We’ve been around for 70 years this year and the main reason for this is because Devon is such an incredible place for family holidays. Families from all across the UK, Europe and the US have come back year after year because they share the same love and passion for the Devonshire family holiday as we so greatly do.

Have we convinced you to join us and take your family on a once in a lifetime trip to Devon in 2017? Well whether we’ve made your bucket list for 2017 or not, Devon is a great place and makes for a great family holiday destination.
