October Cottage Breaks at Find Cottage Holidays

Although in October the nights are starting to draw in and the air is certainly cooler, the weather often tends to be dry with blue skies... giving you crisp bright days for walking and exploring.

With chilly evenings in prospect a self catering cottage is the perfect choice for an October break, giving you somewhere nice and warm to relax in at the end of your day. What's more you can choose cottages with a log open fire to cuddle up in front of or how about a cottage with a hot tub to chill out in each evening?

Of course you are not restricted to traditional cottages, check out some of the self catering options below including bungalows, chalets, lodges, log cabins, holiday flats and apartments.

A holiday cottage break in October is also kinder on your wallet, as accommodation prices are much cheaper than in the peak season. You will also find many of the popular cottages that are solidly booked throughout the main summer are available in October so you can have your pick of the best.
