You have really thought of everything. The wet room was great and we are very grateful for all the little touches. Mike and I loved the trip in the buggy to see the sunset - can't wait till next time!

Self-Catering Spring Escapes to The Coast – Perfect Breaks to Put A Spring in Your Step

Published: 12 February, 2020

The perfect way to fight the Winter Blues is to plan for plenty of adventures in the coming months. With spring just around the corner, now is the time to find great deals on self-catering holiday accommodation in the South West. 

Westward Living’s four and five-star cottages have everything you need, come rain or shine. Chill out in front of the fire, play boardgames or watch a film during spring showers, and make advantage of early sunshine with fun on the beach and walks along the coast path. We offer self-catering short breaks in spring which offer flexibility to our guests.

It can sometimes be hard to find the time to just relax and enjoy the company of a partner, family or friends. But, sometimes, you can’t afford NOT to book a cheeky self-catering spring break. Relax, take stock, recover from the winter rush, and recharge your batteries. Westward Living’s cottages come in all shapes and sizes, offering you optimal flexibility for your escape to the South West.  Sleeping from 2-8 guests, you have a choice of facilities including hot tubs, barbecues, private gardens, accessible rooms and showers. So, whether you want short breaks in the spring or a week’s self-catering accommodation during the summer months, you will find the perfect break with our range of luxury cottages; four-legged friends are, of course, welcome in some of our cottages. 

Venture to the nearby family attraction, The Big Sheep, where if you are lucky, you will see lambs being born! Take part in lamb feeding, which happens twice a day, where you have the opportunity to bottle-feed some of the more established lambs or try your luck in a spot of sheep racing. If the weather isn’t on your side, don’t panic! There is a fabulous indoor play area, so you can chill out with a top-notch cup of coffee while the kids wear themselves out in the ball pool or on the drop slide. 

Take a walk through the stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that is on your doorstep. Revel in the newness of the season; daffodils and snowdrops in bloom, as the flora and fauna emerge, fresh and new after their winter slumber. If you are green fingered yourself, head to Rosemoor RHS Garden Centre, where kids can enjoy the fun outdoor learning environment while you source inspiration for your garden.

Enjoy Easter celebrations in style with a luxury self-catering break in Devon. Treat yourself to a delicious roast dinner at one of an array of delicious local pubs and restaurants including the Pig on the Hill which is only a short walk from our Westward Living self catering cottages

Easter egg hunts don’t more genuine than this! Collect eggs for your breakfast, fresh from our delightful brood of hens – or indulge in a more traditional, chocolate-based Easter Egg hunt with fellow residents.

If you dream of seeing the warmer months in in style, don’t miss out. Get in touch to find out the latest offers and availability while you can. We look forward to seeing you soon!
