Holiday Ideas > October Half Term

October Half Term

October half term: a whole week where you can forget about the PE kits and timetables, lunch boxes and homework. Make the most of it and book up a big family holiday at one of our luxury large group holiday homes; getting there shouldn't be much hassle as the roads are quieter this time of year, but the good things is that lots of attractions are still open so you'll have plenty to see and do. The weather is still good enough for playing outdoors and for barbecues, for going to the coast and for country walks, but it's not baking hot like it is in the height of summer. It's a great time to get away and re-connect, to spend time with your nearest and dearest. 

Our properties are geared up for young and old, with plenty of space, well equipped kitchens, indoor swimming pools, hot tubs, saunas, games rooms, and good, sturdy play equipment, so they're absolutely perfect for a large family. We supply toddler beds and cots, and most of our properties are dog friendly, so even your pet pooch can come too. Make plans for short country walks collecting leaves that you can take back and make pictures from, catch the last of the blackberries growing wild in the hedgerows and go home with a basketful to put in a pie; have a Halloween party where you all dress up and carve pumpkins or have fun apple bobbing - all those wonderful things that make this time of year so special. 

Have a look below and see what we've got for October half term; if there's anything else you need to know just call us on 01823 665500 and we'll help all we can.
