How to Spend New Year’s Eve in South Devon

The countdown is on as we head towards another new year.  The beginning of another year provides us the opportunity to reflect and reset.  It allows us to come together with loved ones, celebrate, and look towards the new year.  There is no better place to do this than in the beautiful South Devon.  With this year of celebrations being the first that we can say are firmly without the restrictions of the pandemic, there are lots of exciting events happening.  Below we discuss our recommendations for events to get involved in to welcome in 2023.  Or if you prefer something a bit quieter and more intimate, we also have you covered with ideas of how to spend your New Year’s Eve in South Devon.


Treat yourself to a trip to the theatre this New Year’s Eve to watch the wonderful Aladdin.  It is a wonderful Christmas production presented by New Pantomine, with excellent sets and costumes to keep your festive spirits soaring.  X Factor and Eastenders’ stars join the cast of this fabulous version of the story.  Let the little ones watch the magic unfold before their eyes as you celebrate the closing of another year.  Book today to enjoy on Your Devon Escape.


A brunch on the beach in winter may seem like a bit of a rogue idea but we at Your Devon Escape think it is one of the best ideas!  Take down blankets and a barbeque and cook yourself a feast on the beach.  The perfect activity for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day.  Enjoy some bubbles or a flask of something warm whilst you breathe in the sea air and take in the last Devon views of 2022.  Why not enjoy a cold sea swim whilst you are there!  Check out our journal for beach recommendations.


Join The Soapbox Theatre this New Years’ Eve for a family-friendly dance party to celebrate the welcoming of 2023.  This event happens earlier in the day, with the clocks reset, so that the children can celebrate their own countdown at ‘midnight’.  There is a session for families with babies and for older children with the music lowered for young ears.  Guest DJ’s will be playing a variety of tunes throughout the event, with glow sticks, UV face paint, performers, and bubbles available!  The rave has lots on offer to keep the whole family entertained this New Year’s Eve in South Devon.  Check out their website to find out more.


Join the Dartmouth locals this New Year’s Eve in South Devon.  Stay in one of our properties inside Dartmouth or just outside and take part in the festivities.  Thousands in fancy dress crowd the streets and pubs of Dartmouth to see the new year in together.  Enjoy the unique experience of hearing the church bells ringing at midnight before continuing the celebrations into the early hours.  The town is full of delicious eateries, so check one out before starting the festivities.  Check out our journal for recommendations!


Bring your nearest and dearest together in one of our properties and host a gathering to bring the New Year in.  We have a selection of properties that can provide a venue to bring everyone together for a celebration!  Whether you cook a big feast, celebrate with bubbles, or watch the London countdown on the television.  A Your Devon Escape property is the place to celebrate New Year’s Eve in South Devon surrounded by all your favourite people.


Open 8pm-2am this New Year’s Eve in South Devon, celebrate at the Pigs Nose as they collaborate with Shoebox.  With a selection of Disco, House, and Funk across two music rooms, this is a unique event to be a part of on Your Devon Escape.  Dress up in 70s glitter; something that will make heads turn, and enjoy a night of dancing, confetti and indoor fireworks.


What can be better than watching the final sunset of the year on one of Devon’s finest beaches.  Take some bubbles or a flask of something warm with some blankets and enjoy the last of the light of 2022 with your nearest and dearest.  A unique and simple way to celebrate New Year’s Eve in South Devon on Your Devon Escape.  Check out our journal for beach recommendations!
