October Half-Term Availability

The Autumn term is usually the longest for our children and the October half term is a very welcome break from all that academia - offering you and your little ones a well earnt opportunity to regain some sanity, relax and enjoy some much longed-for family time.

With crisp mornings and sunny afternoons and the trees displaying their full golden splendour there is nowhere more rejuvenating and beautiful than our British shores at this time of year - making it one of the most popular school holidays for a getaway. The half term school holiday is normally a week long break, lending itself perfectly to short breaks for 2, 3, 4 or however many nights would suit you. With plenty to see and do and all within an agreeable travel time, it’s an ideal opportunity to make the most of a cottage holiday in the UK.

Whether you are looking for history, hills and intrigue in Yorkshire, fish and chips, fresh seaside air and walks along empty beaches in Devon or a city escape full of colour, flamboyance and individualism in Brighton. Below you'll find a great selection of our holiday homes available to book during the October half term break and simply waiting for you to make perfect Autumnal memories. There's lots more to see if you click on the link at the bottom but if you still can’t find what you are looking for then please call us on 0333 2020 899 to speak to one of our holiday experts.
