Autumn is an excellent time to get away from it all. The falling leaves and golden, orange shades are the UK countryside's last flourish before winter and they lead to spectacular scenic views. Who knows, if you're lucky you may even catch a bit of the year's last sunshine.

If you're looking for an autumn break in the UK, we have a fantastic collection of holiday cottages that can make the perfect base for relaxation and leafy walks.

The perfect time for a country escape

Whether you're leaning towards an autumn break in England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland, our cottages are in many of the UK's most desirable spots. With that in mind, why not try an autumn city break with a difference? Rather than hide away in an urban hotel, embrace the autumnal countryside in one of our many cottages that are only a stone's throw away from the UK's liveliest cities.

With a Sykes holiday cottage, you can also rest assured that the features are as unique as the locations. From the much-needed warmth provided by crackling open fires and luxurious hot tubs to a cottage with a swimming pool, cater to any requirements. If what's around your cottage matters more to you than what's inside it, take a look at our country cottages and enjoy all the natural beauty the season has to offer.

For families, autumn also holds an important event-October half-term. As the first school holiday after the long summer break, it's not uncommon for youngsters to pine for another trip. Whether your kids are in their single figures or their terrible teens, we have plenty of family-friendly cottages and places that are close to various autumn activities for children.

Whatever you do, don't forget your wellies

If you're looking for a cheap holiday this autumn, whether it's over the October half-term or not, take a look at our last minute deals. There's usually plenty of choice and you could make a 35% saving.

Please, call one of our advisers on 01244 356666 if you have any queries or concerns. However small it may seem, we're always glad to help.
