Self-catering coastal holiday cottages for October half term

Escape the summer crowds and explore Britain’s gorgeous coastline at autumn-time with our selection of coastal cottages for October half term.

Enjoy some of the UK’s most stunning beaches and spectacular coastline, just a short distance from our holiday cottages by the sea. Our accommodation not only enjoys a close proximity to the shoreline but often boasts its own sea views out over blue waters from the window.

Whether you’re a family looking to enjoy the seaside or a couple looking to get away with the dog, we have a variety of coastal holiday cottages to suit all kinds of breaks.

Things do to during an October half-term break

With the changing seasons the great outdoors is looking more colourful than ever! Orange pumpkins are appearing in doorways, red and yellow leaves adorn the trees and evergreen shrubs are keeping their green foliage and showing just how tough they are. Our autumn holiday watch guide is bursting with great ways to make the most of this vibrant season.

Discover exciting attractions and things to do with our top days out across the UK with kids, and if you need to run for cover, we’ve sought out our top wet weather attractions for a rainy October half term.

You may be surprised to hear the sea around the UK is usually at its warmest in October, having been heated all summer by the sunshine. If you fancy catching a wave, we’ve put together a brief guide to autumn and winter surfing for the water sports lovers and outdoor spirits among you planning your October break.

Places to stay for October half term

Take the kids on a trip to the Yorkshire Coast, home to Dracula’s Whitby and the attractions of Scarborough, visit Pepper Pig World and Beaulieu on a break to the New Forest, or escape to the furthest reaches of Cornwall where the beaches are an unbeatable attraction any time of year.

Perhaps you’d rather head to Wales for the October half term where both Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire offer miles of coastline to explore? Dorset is another delightful choice for a coastal break in autumn and ideal for families who can investigate the curiosities of the Jurassic Coast.

Children may also like to seek out the Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye or explore the attraction-filled streets of Edinburgh on a break to Scotland. Harry Potter fans could head to the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and marvel at Alnwick Castle which played a starring role as the famed School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

There’s no shortage of incredible attractions, activities and places to visit in the UK on your October half term holiday. Browse our October half-term holiday cottages by the coast or head over to our full collection of cottages for October half term for even more inspiration.
