Autumn is such a picturesque time of year and, after the hustle and bustle of a busy summer, it's a great time for a cottage break to relax and recharge your batteries.

With the sun's lingering warmth, the quieter days of September are a great opportunity to get out and about. October heralds a riot of colour – the perfect backdrop for family half-term adventures. November might be that little bit colder, but it’s great for anyone who loves wrapping up for a crisp woodland walk or settling down beside a cosy cottage fire.

The year might be winding down but there’s still plenty to do at the special places we care for, from cycling to stargazing, and there are lots of wildlife spectacles to see, including deer rutting, seal pupping and birds migrating. Whether you’re after an active break with the kids or a peaceful retreat in the countryside, you’re sure to find your perfect autumn getaway in one of our holiday cottages.
