    Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree this short break sounds just right for me. Turkey and Tinsel, bucks fizz, excursions, entertainment there's nothing left out having fun at Christmas time is what this breaks about.

    As my birthday is on Christmas Day I usually have a very busy birthday.
    This trip would be a nice break and a chance to enjoy Christmas without all the preparation involved.

    I think this is the perfect prize for any cook about to run the Christmas Marathon - you know, the one racing between the fridge and cooker, over several days, when the whole family comes to watch?

    Lovely prize, love Devon, haven't been to Torquay for a couple of years. This would be a great pre Christmas break to get us in the Christmassy mood.

    Brilliant prize. How relaxing instead of driving for a Christmas treat, having a escorted coach trip. The idea of celebrating in Devon sounds wonderful, never been to Exeter. Love Dartmouth and Totnes, would enjoy seeing Brixham for the first time. Certainly would get you in the festive mood. Good luck to all.

    What a great way to start off the Festive Season with a break away meeting new people & exploring a great part of the UK. It would be super getting into the Festive Spirit and kick-starting it all with a fun-filled and fabulous ‘Christmas and New Year’ experience! Great prize draw!
