Blue Monday…coined as the most depressing day of the year. After overindulging at Christmas, feeling guilty for not sticking to New Year’s resolutions and waiting for pay day, it is the day that people look forward to the least in the year. BUT we at Your Devon Escape believe that there are loads of reasons as to why Blue Monday doesn’t have to be blue and why it should be a day that you can look forward to. Below are some activities to try that will help prevent blue Monday from being blue…
Cosy up in one of our unique properties. Enjoy the river views, the beach views, or the many rooms and grounds to explore. Spend time with loved ones playing games, cooking a delicious meal together or watching a film. Snuggle up under the blankets and indulge in good company. Blue Monday can’t be blue when you are surrounded by your favourite people and, if you are chilling indoors, it won’t cost a penny!
PINT IN THE PUB
Get cosy in one of the many unique pubs in the South West. Some within walking distance of our properties. Sit by the fire and stay warm whilst you chat with friends. Make it part of a walk, with a cosy pub as the destination. Treat yourself to a pint at the end, or the beginning, or somewhere in between. Enjoy a tipple of some Devon goodness as you catch up with loved ones on Your Devon Escape.
POP INTO A COFFEE SHOP
Explore the cute coffee shops dotted around South Devon. Take a drive down the coast or through the countryside, and a grab a cup of something warm from one of the many lovely spots. Either take it away and wander, or sit in the warm and have a catch up. With so many on the doorsteps of our properties, or nearby in one of the many cute Devon towns, step outside and enjoy on Your Devon Escape.
TAKE A TRIP TO THE BEACH
Take a trip to the beach; its free! Rain or shine, enjoy the beach in winter. Take a stroll, a dip or simply watch the waves roll in. No matter the weather, a beautiful beach can be enjoyable! Head on down to one of the many wonderful ones in Devon, breathe in that sea air and enjoy what the beach has to offer on Your Devon Escape. It’s good for you!

The South Devon section of the South West Coast Path allows you to take in some of the breath-taking scenery the area has to offer. Enjoy beach and clifftop views whilst watching the boats go by. Look for birds or keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and seals swimming about. Take a walk on the coast path whether it is sunny or rainy, breathe in the sea air and collect all the endorphins from a good stomp.
