Updated 4 August: Given my recent mailbag there seems to be some confusion over travel rights after Brexit, assuming it happens with or without a deal on 31 October. A restriction will be in place for British travellers (just as for other third-country, i.e. non-EU, nationals) and the EU has confirmed that it will apply whether there’s a deal or not.

The restriction is that British travellers will only be able to spend a maximum of 90 days in the Schengen area (see HERE) in any 180-day period. This period is counted always from the last visit: essentially, whenever anyone wants to enter the Schengen area, they should look at the immediately prior three months and calculate how many days they have left out of their 90 for that period.

This 90 days in a 180-day period is, in fact, equivalent to the short-stay Schengen visa from which, thanks to the EU, British nationals will be exempted after Brexit. Longer visas will be available to applicants, but any visas for visits exceeding the short-term Schengen period (90/180) remain subject to national procedures. This means that applications will have to be made to Spain for a “long duration visa” – see HERE: I have no specific information at present about these but know from experience that they are convoluted and costly in application, and difficult to acquire.
