Autumnal delights in the West Country

The scrunch of crisp autumn leaves underfoot, the crack and pop of a log fire, or the roar of rough seas crashing against rocks - which is your favourite sound of autumn? For us, it's the sound of happy customers calling to book a much deserved break in this most atmospheric corner of the country.

There are always some tempting autumn offers - the leaves are falling and so are October prices.

You're well set for the local pub and Exmoor's dramatic coast at The Bothy (F56) near Parracombe, or how about The Linney (G94, pictured above) at Colyton - sheltered inland from some lovely east Devon coastal villages and the spectacular 'Jurassic Coast'.

Book your seat for a steam train expedition past the romantic ruins of Corfe Castle from Westcott (H31), a 16th century cottage in the village. Jane's Place (J37) is a recently renovated cottage for five just outside Lifton, a popular stomping ground for fishermen.

You're in excellent walking country at Hawthorn Barn (L61) in East Allington, where foot and bridlepaths lead to the beautiful wooded river Avon valley. 

Just outside Trelights, a sleepy hamlet about a mile from the South West Coast Path and handy for beautiful beaches at Port Quin, Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Rock, is Long Cottage (P87). Explore evocative mining ruins at Trevaunance Cove from 2 Water Lane (Q34), a handsome, Victorian villa in St Agnes.

These are just a few of our autumn offers, so check our special offers page for other great deals over the coming weeks.
