Official…It’s Now Autumn in Britain and Ireland

Autumn holidays in the UK and irelandThis Saturday marks the official start of Autumn in Great Britain, marking the end of the summer and the start of the slow transition to winter.

Now although the passing of the summer is a little sad, it should be remembered that the Autumn in the UK is a fairly magical time of vibrant colours in the countryside, blue skies and crisp fresh air. And although we often feel short-changed by the lack of a hot summer it has to be said that we quite often get lucky with a bright and warm Autumn to make up for it.

It’s an excellent time to holiday or take a short break in Britain because the main tourist season is over, which pretty much guarantees you a more relaxing and peaceful time to explore the villages, towns, countryside and coast.

Of course, as there are less tourists at this time of year accommodation prices and availability are also considerably more pleasant, so you can holiday for longer for less.  Perfect 🙂  Here is a list of some excellent self catering cottages, apartments and holiday flats for an Autumn break in the UK and Ireland.

October Half Term Cottage Breaks

 

As the summer holidays start to draw to a close, now is a great time to get ahead of the rush and book an October Half Term holiday.

We know, it’s still sunny outside so who wants to think about the Autumn, Halloween and the approaching winter.  We certainly don’t, but a quick bit of planning now will mean you have something to look forward to when you and the family returns to school and work.

The October School Half Term is the last extended break before Christmas and surprisingly it is quite often a sunny and dry one (although a bit chilly in the evenings). A holiday cottage is perfect for the October Half Term providing a great base for all your family day time activities but also somewhere warm and snug in the evening (or those odd wet days).

As a relatively big holiday, often culminating in Halloween fun, you will find lots of the UK’s attractions are open during the Half Term break, often with themed events and fun.  What’s more if you stay at a lodge or static caravan on a holiday park you will find many of them run a full entertainment programme for all the family during the Half term.

So you don’t have to spend too long thinking of October and so that you can back to your summer holiday as quickly as possible take a look at our selection of holiday cottages, apartments, holiday flats, lodges and mobile homes perfect for a self catering Half Term holiday.
