If you love the countryside, then Devon in October is sure to delight. With huge expanses of rolling fields and woodland adopting a beautiful golden glow you can choose from countless walks, wandering passed rust-coloured hedgerows and mounds of multi-coloured leaves. If you have got a two or four-legged friend who would love to join you, we have cottages to suit all group sizes including dog-friendly accommodation. Devon doesn't just offer a rural idyll though. Miles of stunning coastline provide a wonderful playground to walk, talk and sit and admire the views. Head off on a solo retreat or gather up all the family; October half term is just around the corner and kids of all ages won't fail to be enthralled by all that's on offer.
