Cottages for October half term

If you’re looking for the perfect autumnal break in the UK, we have a fantastic collection of holiday cottages in England, Scotland and Wales the whole family will enjoy staying in for October half term. October half-term is the first holiday after the summer and a welcomed break by many, so packing the bags, children and dogs to stay in one of our cosy holiday cottages for the week couldn’t be a better idea to keep the spirits up until Christmas.

October is a great time of year to go on holiday. The nights may be drawing in, and our unpredictable British weather may have unleashed its first frost, but the summer crowds have gone and the roads are quieter, making it an excellent time to enjoy the delights of autumn with the family in a lovely family friendly holiday cottage.

It may be the perfect time for you to surprise your partner with a romantic holiday in a dreamy cottage sleeping just the two. Autumn couldn’t be better for romantic holidays in the countryside now the leaves are turning and The Cotswolds and The Heart of England are just two sensational places in the UK to see it. Why not browse through our working farm cottages in Wales and pick your perfect autumn countryside retreat to experience rural life really up close.

October half term could be the time when you round up family and friends for a big group get together and if that’s the case we have a fantastic range of large cottages right across the UK. You might even want to chase away the pre-winter blues with a luxury holiday in one of our 5-star rated cottages.
