This 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.
