Why book an autumn break in Devon
If you’re looking for a relaxing autumn break then head to the coast and allow Devon to work its magic on you. Enjoy walks through a kaleidoscope of colour, feel the crunch of leaves under your feet, explore miles of golden countryside and beautiful sunsets over the ocean.
Here are our top five reasons to enjoy an autumn break in Devon this year, including attractions that can be easily reached from our 5-star holiday park in Devon.
1. Get your walking shoes on
Dig out your walking shoes, and probably hats and scarfs, and get outdoors. There are countless woodland walks in Devon, both across the countryside and along the coast. Head to Dartmoor and witness this expansive moor beautifully changing into gold and orange hues.

2. Devon beaches
Autumn breaks are perfect for tranquil breaks and once the summer crowds have left, it can feel as though you have the beaches to yourself. It’s a great time to visit with the family pet, as out of the main holiday season many of the beaches become dog-friendly again (as many are not during the summer). And if you fancy a caravan holiday in Devon, head back to Oakdown Holiday Park after your walk and clean up your mutt with the new bespoke dog wash. ‘Clean Paws’ is equipped with a dog bath with a hot water shower and a doggie hair dryer – all free to use!
3. Cosy nights in
After an active day on your feet, there’s nothing better than collapsing into the welcoming arms of a cosy and welcoming English pub. Holidays in Sidmouth are perfect for this; this lovely coastal town is packed with atmospheric pubs, many being family and dog friendly, so that you can enjoy a few drinks in the company of others.
4. Try your hand at golf
One of the best ways to appreciate the patchwork colours of autumn is to head out to the fairway and hit a few buzzards and bogies! Oak Mead Family Golf Course in Sidmouth, just opposite Oakdown Holiday Park, offers golf for all ages and abilities. Try your skills on Honeysuckle Bank, First Foxglove, Daisy Chain or Marigold Dip over the 9-hole course or if you’re a beginner, head to the pitch and putt. The golf course is open all year round.
5. Home from home
When you return from your contemplative walks along the gorgeous Devon beaches and enjoyed your pint at the local pub, there’s nothing better than returning to a cosy and warm holiday home, fully equipped for your autumn break. The luxury Leisure Lodges at our 5-star holiday park in Devon are finished to the highest standard, with modern fixtures and fittings throughout.
Each caravan Leisure Lodge has two centrally heated bedrooms, one with a double bed and flat screen TV, the other has two singles – all with co-ordinating duvets and linen included in the price. The beautiful lounge has sprung seating; remote controlled flat screen TV, DVD player and electric fire.
