Short Break Ideas For This Autumn


Unfortunately the summer is starting to draw to an end and people will be starting to think what they are going to do in the Autumn period. Whereas in the summer, you are after sunny family holidays in seaside areas, Autumn is the perfect time to cuddle up with your loved ones in a cottage. In this article, we will look at some great ideas for Autumn short breaks.


Shropshire is a hidden gem that lies on the English and Welsh Borders. The Romans first discovered that Shropshire is an ideal place to stay and rest and visitors have been returning ever since. The county offers great food and proper ales, which are prefect if you have just been for an autumn walk in the countryside.


Northumberland is another great county for a short autumn break. Lovers of the outdoors will find that the Northumberland National Park a brilliant place to spend some quality time with family or friends. Many visitors come to the area for the great walks, the coastline and to visit Hadrian’s Wall. One of the best forms of accommodation in the region is a Northumberland Cottage, as they provide an extremely warm and cosy stay for the Autumn season.

Scottish Borders

As you can tell by the places mentioned in this article, we are not recommended city breaks or the usual family destinations and the Scottish Borders are no different. We are looking at the best places to take a nice relaxing autumn short break.

The rolling hills and moorland of the Scottish borders allows you to escape the hustle and bustle of your busy life. The borders are filled with stunning country side, castles, museums and charming villages.

Pembrokeshire Coast

Our final recommendation is the Pembrokeshire coast. Pembrokeshire is home to the only National Park that sits on the coastline. This makes for stunning views that include islands, lakes, woodlands and beaches all in one area. If you are after a quiet break where you are more likely to see wildlife than people, then the Pembrokeshire coast is the place for you. If you are lucky, you may spot some Dolphins and even Whales.
