The first term of school is really flying by and half term is almost here, so have you got something planned to keep the family entertained during the week off?
The Autumn half term is always a difficult one to predict the weather, changeable is most likely this late in October, so planning your half-term break with indoor and outdoor activities is a must.
We like to stay in family holiday lodges over the Autumn half term because it provides so many great solutions:
- Whether situated on the coast or the countryside, a lodge is perfect for getting out and about quickly when the weather is clear and dry. So you can quickly get out and about exploring and burning off some of that excess energy.
- Of course, coming back to a lodge caked in mud or wet-through is always a bit easier…. mop-able floors and not your carpet!
- Many lodges are on holiday parks which tend to run activities during the half term break – so you can get some time without the kids asking what’s next.
- Of course lodges have some great facilities such as swimming pools and adventure playgrounds, so whatever the weather you can keep them entertained.
We think a holiday lodge is hard to beat for a half term holiday break and don’t worry, it’s not too late to book one for October/November. There is still last-minute availability at some great prices. Take a look at some half term holiday lodges. For checking out last-minute availability you can also call 0844 847 1143.

What to do with the kids during the winter half term can be a challenge. We all know the weather can be unpredictable, at best, so the February school half term at home can feel like a lot of time locked in at home with children with far too much unused energy… does that sound familiar?
If it does, then why not consider taking a short break in a holiday lodge this February half term? It really is a perfect family solution.
Activity Parks to Swimming Pools and Family Fun
Lots of lodges can be found on popular holiday parks across the UK. During the School half term many of these parks will run kids entertainment programmes for everything from exploring in the great outdoors to indoor art and creativity sessions. In fact there will be lots to keep children of all ages entertained so that Mum and Dad can enjoy the break to, whatever the weather.
Many of the holiday parks with lodges also have swimming pools, table tennis tables, amusements and other facilities such as indoor play areas. So there are lots of things to do to wear even the most active children out during a fun packed day.
Accommodation for Families and Pets
Lodge accommodation is perfect for families providing comfortable and affordable self catering. Cosy even in February, lodges are available for families of all sizes and that includes your pet dog too!
Great Prices, Superb Value
Holiday lodges are excellently priced family self catering all year round, but they offer even better value in the winter half term where prices are much lower than in the summer. In addition you can find some great deals and discounts on holiday lodges across the UK which can save you even more. Take a look at some February half term lodge deals

If you are looking for some school half term inspiration we might have just what you are looking for as we have added a whole new collection of cottages in the ever popular Cotswolds to our listings. Whether you are looking to explore picturesque villages, roam the countryside or relax in a home from home, you can be sure that, whichever one of the Cotswold cottages you choose you will have a great time.
The February half term is a great time to get away in a cottage, apartment or lodge as there is still plenty of outdoor fun to be had but its great to end the day in your cosy accommodation.
It is well worth considering a lodge on a holiday park during the February half term as there is quite often family entertainment on the park during the holiday period which keeps the children of all ages entertained even if the weather is on the cold or damp side!
During the October school half term we stayed in a lovely Cotswold cottage and visited Westonbirt, The National Arboretum. With over 17 miles of forest walks, glorious colour from 16,000 trees (2,500 different species) it is a lovely day out even on a cooler day.

If you want to enjoy the splendour and beauty of an English Autumn day then it’s time to check out Exbury Gardens in the New Forest, Hampshire on the south coast.
At this time of Exbury Gardens are full of resplendent and spectacular fiery seasonal colours from maples, dogwoods and deciduous azaleas to the stunning National Collection of Nyssa and Oxydendrum. You can also enjoy a 45 minute self-guided trail leading you to the best of the colour in Yard Wood, with descriptions of over 23 trees associated with the season, and discover arguably the country’s finest display of Nerine sarniensis (the jewel lily) in the Five Arrows Gallery displayed alongside Peter Thwaites inspiring ‘Wild Autumn Art.’
It is a great family day out with over 20 miles of pathways, three woods and parkland to explore. Even the wet cannot spoil the fun – simply put on your waterproof and see a new side to Exbury! In the Gardens children can discover plants that existed before dinosaurs roamed the earth; plants dinosaurs liked to eat; a Chinese Coffin Tree and even the Devil’s Walking Stick!
Exbury is also home to a Steam Railway that runs every day the Gardens are open and a special Halloween ghost train runs during late October.
Find out more about Exbury Gardens including website details and opening times.

It’s been a strange week so far, winter weather conditions one moment, blue skies and sun the next, but it’s clearly not just me that is confused judging by my mail in-box.
So far I have been offered some great discounts off sunglasses, holiday discounts for October half term and in my local supermarket I was confronted by row upon row of Christmas special offers!
So which ‘urgent’ need should I be addressing first? The up and coming school half term, our Christmas plans or our 2013 summer holiday!
I don’t know about you, but I am not quite ready to write off 2012 yet, after all it’s only the beginning of October. And, there are still things to look forward to including Halloween, Bonfire Night (and Fireworks), a number of music festivals and events, and of course the prospect of many cosy nights in. I still see plenty of opportunities for an October short break, a November get-away and a December holiday – but then I am all about the holidays!
