Christmas at Long Barn Cottages

South Devon is the perfect destination for families of all sizes to celebrate together, with Long Barn luxury Cottages near Torquay being a top choice for a number of reasons.

No family size too big – With 4 luxury cottages, we have a great range of options.  Ranging in size from Long Barn that sleeps 13 people plus 2/3 cots, to Honeybag that accommodates 2 people and a cot, you are sure to find a cottage to suit your families festive needs.

Plenty to keep children entertained in all weather – on site! – Come rain, shine, and of course SNOW! Children will be able to keep themselves busy and active, using our leisure facilities including our play barn (for the younger ones), adventure play equipment, and of course our indoor heated swimming pool! Equally, should the snow not be in great supply here, the heights of Dartmoor are just a short drive away and get snowfall most years.

All the facilities you need: Want to cook Christmas dinner just like you would at home? Or how about a cosy family movie night on a winter’s evening? Not a problem with our fantastic facilities, that give you the perfect “home from home” experience.

There are a wealth of festive events and unmissable activities taking places across South Devon and the English Riviera during Christmas time. What could be better than being able to bring the young ones (and the older ones!) to some of the region’s best attractions and special Christmas events in Devon? Here are a few of our favourites:
