October Half Term

Enjoy a fun-filled adventure this October

If the rush on holiday bookings left you without a plan for a family break this summer, fear not as there’s still plenty of time to drum up a spectacular staycation for all this October half term.

Crabtree & Crabtree offer fun-filled holidays across the North of England and South of Scotland and we are all about the good old-fashioned family adventure: building dens, splashing about in streams, riding bikes and building sandcastles on the beach. Think: Famous Five meets Swallows & Amazons. It’s time to rewild your child on an epic autumnal escape… from long sandy beaches and wild and windy national parks to working farms, medieval castles, lighthouses and remote islands, this corner of the world has so much to offer families who love the great outdoors.

Looking for a smaller property for an escape with a few friends or that special someone? With modern coastal apartments and quaint cosy cottages aplenty, whisk yourselves away to a land of dazzling seascapes, rolling moorland and winding country lanes.

These properties are available throughout the upcoming October half term. Some of our holiday homes and cottages are available for full weeks whilst others can be booked for short breaks.

Please note that we manually update this page daily.
