Holiday cottages for October half term

Choose a holiday cottage in the Welsh countryside, complete with a hot tub to keep warm in those autumn winds. With plenty of nearby forests and coastlines to explore by day and cloud-like king-size beds to nestle into at night, you’ll be ready to tackle the next term after your short family break.

Whilst dips in the sea might be off the cards in October, the clifftop views and hidden caves along the English coastline are enough to attract you back to the beach. Bring your pooch for long windy dog walks in the sea breeze and warm your toes and paws on the underfloor heating when you return.

Plan your perfect October half term break

In need of some rest and relaxation this autumn? An October half term short holiday is the perfect break between the warmth of summer and chill of winter. Take a look at our holiday cottages across the UK for inspiration for your next getaway.
