Holiday cottages for October

Booking a holiday cottage in October sounds more like a winter break, but the summer can be extended by a few extra weeks down here

We’re not promising, but you could be on the beach enjoying the best the South West has to offer. And at this time of year you can also bring the dog, or grab your surfboard as the Atlantic swells start rolling in and the sea is still warm, well fairly! If stormy seas don’t float your boat, it is a great time to explore the many gardens and woodlands in the area 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 1119 holiday cottages for October for you to choose from.
