Getting Hygge with it

Updated: Apr 5, 2023

With our recent addition to our property portfolio of the lovely Hygge, we were inspired to take a look a little further into the meaning of Hygge and how you can embrace a bit more Hygge on your Taylor Made Salcombe holiday.

So what is Hygge

Pronounced "hoo-ga," this Danish concept cannot be translated to one single word but encompasses a feeling of cosy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. In its truest sense, hygge is a feeling that comes from the ability to make an ordinary day into an extraordinary day, something we at Taylor Made Salcombe strive for you to feel when you holiday at one of our properties.

Hygge in the Winter

Hygge is all about embracing those colder and darker winter months, slowing down, relaxing and getting cosy & comfortable. Here are a few ideas to embrace the Hygge lifestyle whilst on your winter break with Taylor Made Salcombe.

Breakfast in bed

Enjoy a lazy morning lie in -no time pressures to get up, you are on holiday. Fresh hot coffee and delicious croissants and pastries from The Bakehouse in Salcombe.

Wrapping up for a winter beach walk

Wrap up warm and go and embrace that wild winter weather with a bracing beach walk or along the South West Coast Path, so you can really feel the coziness when you return. All of our properties are just a short walk away from some of South Hams's best beaches.

Curling up with blankets & candles for a night in

After a day of exploring the South Hams and maybe a hearty pub lunch, hunker down for the evening in one of our lovely cosy properties with blankets, candles and enjoy quality time together sipping on a fine red wine and playing board games.

Relaxing with a good book

Take that time to read the book you feel like you never have time to read or just curl up on the sumptuous sofa and enjoy the wonderful sea views many of our properties have to offer.

Homemade sweets, comfort food, and hot drinks

Pop in to Cranches Salcombe for your sweet fix, head to a cosy Devon pub for a comforting pub lunch or indulge in the ultimate hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows from Salcombe Coffee Company.

Hygge in the Summer

Instead of cosy jumpers and candles, summer hygge means enjoying the great outdoors. Whether it’s a paddle in the sea, a beach picnic with family or an alfresco sundowner with friends, this is the time for making memories and enjoying the warmth.

Fresh Flowers

We provide fresh summer blooms in all our holiday homes to welcome you on your arrival and bring in the lovely summer scents and cheeriness of the outside.

Sunrise dip

Wake up raring to go and take a refreshing morning dip as the sun rises over the water. All our properties are just a moment from the water and some even have their own jetty!

Beach day

We are lucky to have many gorgeous beaches around our properties, you are only a walk away from a beach at any one of our holiday homes. Take a picnic (and some rosè) as be sure you will want to stay their until the sun goes down.

E-Bike adventure

Do as the Danes do and get cycling, explore the gorgeous South Hams countryside via E-Bike (makes the hills a lot more tolerable!) You can hire E-Bikes from Salcombe Bike Hire and they also offer guided tours.

Sunset aperitifs

Take the rosé to the beach or have a Salcombe Gin & Tonic on one of our properties fabulous terraces or gardens, the summer sunsets are unmissable and deserve to be toasted. For those staying in Thurlestone we highly recommend checking out the sunset from South Milton sands, it is mind-blowingly stunning!

Alfresco dining

Make the most of the balmy evenings and dine outdoors, most of our holiday homes are equipped with BBQ and outdoor dining facilities. Or head to one of the delicious restaurants in the area and enjoy some local seafood.
