Holiday Cottages for October

Booking a holiday cottage in October may sound like a winter break, but summer often extends its stay and graces October with glorious sunshine and warm weather. With quiet weeks and an opportunity to take the kids away for half term, there are lots of things to look forward to however you'd like to spend your holiday. Get started and browse our 1074 available cottages.

We’re not promising, but it's not uncommon to be able to sit on the beach in October enjoying bright sunshine, particularly hot in a sheltered corner. And at this time of year you can also bring the dog with you as the doggy beach ban is lifted in September. Bring your bag, ball and a bowl for water, and you could spend hours playing games and relaxing on the beach, occasionally dipping your toes in the sea to cool off. October is also a great time to explore gardens and woodlands as they put on golden autumnal coats for their end of year display. Bring the family during October half-term to relive memories of a spent summer or indulge in a luxury short break before the winter kicks in. We have 1074 holiday cottages for October for you to choose from.
