October half term 2016 | Villas and cottages for half term holidays

UK October half term (161)

Make the most of the October half term holidays and get away with the family on a half term break. Most UK schools are off for October half term from Saturday 24 October to Sunday 1 November 2015.



If you’re looking for a holiday in the UK, explore the great outdoors in Wales or choose a Cornish cottage to snuggle up in. If Scotland takes your fancy, grab an Edinburgh apartment for a spot of spooky history. Or take a short hop over the water to Ireland, the Isle of Wight or the Isle of Man.



Gites in France are easily accessible by Eurostar, plus villas and apartments in Spain, Portugal and the Canaries are perfect for autumn sun. If you don't mind a longer plane journey then Florida villas and a week at Disneyland always go down a treat.
