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.

Royal Ascot Starts Today – take a last minute short break

It’s great to see that the sun is out for the first day of Royal Ascot.  With big, resplendently dressed, crowds expected and some excellent racing to look forward Royal Ascot is a wonderful social and sporting event.

The first race of the day is the Queen Anne’s Stakes with the unbeaten Frankel among the favourites.  We have to admit that we don’t know much about horse racing form so our betting is largely restricted to looks and the name, anyone got any tips for Royal Ascot?

Are you going to Royal Ascot this year?  If you are, have a brilliant day.  We would love to see some of your pictures of the day, please post them here or on our Facebook page.  As you can see we struggle with finding good pictures to use on our website for Ascot so we really do need your help!

You will find  Ascot in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.  If you are looking for a short break or weekend break in the area, Berkshire and Surrey offers some excellent self catering, ranging from apartments to cottages, accommodation for couples, families or groups.
