October Half Term Cottage, Aparment, Holiday Flat and Lodge Breaks

The October School Half Term is a great time to get away on a family break, making the most of the last good weather days of the year before winter sets in.

August Bank Holiday Cottage Breaks

The October half term is the last school break before Christmas and is a great time to get away as generally the autumnal weather can be quite kind at this time of year. Below you will find some excellent self catering accommodation for the school half term holiday ranging from cottages and holiday flats to lodges, chalets and caravans.

The self catering listed includes everything from cheap, budget friendly holidays to luxury breaks. But rest assured, all offer excellent accommodation at great locations across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

Availability of self catering accommodation in the October half term is not so bad as you would expect during the school summer holidays but as the half term approaches you will find the choices reducing so it is worth booking early especially if you have a preferred destination..
