Holiday cottages for October
Misty mornings and sunny days in the Cotswolds
Autumn is one of the most spectacular seasons in the Cotswolds, when the mornings are cool and misty yet there is still the promise of a sunny day later on. Our handpicked holiday cottages are perfect for cosy romantic breaks, walking holidays and family adventures with your favourite four-legged friend.
October is when the countryside explodes into glorious technicolour and the hills are swathed in every shade of red, gold and flaming orange. Mother Nature’s fabulous seasonal display can be seen to great effect in a number of places, but in particular at Batsford Arboretum near Moreton-in-Marsh, the National Arboretum at Westonbirt, close to Tetbury, and Wychwood Forest, just a stones throw from Charlbury. Another favourite spot is the ‘Capability Brown’ designed parkland at Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, which usually puts on a magnificent display. There are so many to choose from!
After a day of crunching through the leaves, enjoy an evening in front of a roaring fire in a traditional country pub. Then retire to your cosy cottage where you can put the muddy wellies aside and put your feet up with a good book and glass of wine. The autumn offers such a vibrant side of the Cotswolds, and we have colourful cottages to match.
