October can be the most colourful month of the year, with trees parading their final flourish before stripping bare for the winter. Take the kids on a half term holiday to remember and soak up the last hints of green. A day out to a public garden might not be first on the children's list of things to do but running through tunnels lined with golden leaves and feeling the crunch underfoot will soon have them jumping in leafy mounds with excitement. The sea has a magical quality, reflecting the October sky and sparkling on the horizon. It doesn't matter if the weather takes a turn for the wintery worse, as a good storm will liven up any school holiday - stand safely back from the sea and feel the salty spray. Once you've finished exploring, return to your very own private retreat and relax in total comfort.
