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 1062 holiday cottages for October for you to choose from.
