Why Autumn is the Perfect Time to go on a UK Cottage Holiday
I think autumn is my favourite season. It’s lovely to get the snuggly jumpers out of the cupboard that hide all the lumps and bumps and don the fluffy slippers once again. I love the feeling of being all warm and cosy when the rain and wind are battering at the windows and I’m all snug and warm inside, preferably ensconced on the sofa with a hot chocolate, a bit of a cake and a roaring fire!
I have to admit when we take our UK Cottage Holiday it tends to be either in the summer or Easter. However, one memorable autumn we went on a cottage holiday to Wales and had a fantastic time.
We woke up to crisp, cold frosty mornings and it was really lovely to wrap up warm on our days out and not worry about administering sun cream or getting burnt. We really enjoyed admiring the beautiful Welsh scenery and the stunning Autumnal colours. What was even lovelier was coming back to our holiday cottage taking off our muddy wellies and getting all cosy with cups of hot chocolate (topped with plenty of cream and marshmallows of course). Then once the girls were in bed we would get the log fire going and crack open a bottle of red and select some good television. Is it just me, but does the choice of what’s on the television get a whole load better in the Autumn too?
We were lucky enough to have a hot tub too; when it’s cold there is something very decadent about submerging in the warm bubbles taking in the stars and the crisp night air.
Food is also better in autumn, say goodbye to salads and hello to stodge! As it gets colder after a nice long ramble all we want to do is eat- sticky toffee pudding, crumbles, jam roly-poly and bread and butter pudding. The stickier the stodgier, the better! These sorts of puddings are perfect for cold nights!
Furthermore, by booking a UK holiday cottage in the autumn you miss the crowds, and get attractions pretty much to yourself and save yourself lots of money by booking your holiday cottage out of season.
