Last Minute Availability - October Half Term 2013

Can there be a better place to spend October half term than in the beautiful English Lake District National Park whilst the leaves are turning colour. Conkers to find, leaves to shuffle through, stones to skim and some excellent places for a pub lunch and of course for younger visitors the attraction of Beatrix Potter.

Mr Harvison's - Ambleside

last minute october half term 2013 A friend of mine with a teenager swears by staying in Ambleside. She says that her teen and her friend can potter off on their own around the town when they want to, as well as it being a great central location for exploring. What's more with so much on the doorstep its possible to leave the car parked for the duration of your stay. Now, that has to be an advantage!

Two of the bedrooms in this cottage have en-suite showers in addition to the family bathroom. Mr. Harvison's (what an interesting name for a cottage) has an open fire and all the old world charm we love about the Lake District, but with the modern touches of an i-pod dock and a convenient 200 yds from shops, restaurants and pubs.

Check all the details and up to date availability of Mr Harvison's in Ambleside.

Yattus - Eskdale

last minute october half term 2013 Picturesque west Cumbria with the delightful 'Laal Ratty' Eskdale & Ravenglass Narrow Gauge Railway and Muncaster Castle just waiting to be explored.

If you're looking for a mix of traditional without forgoing any 21st century luxury, Yattus could be the perfect cottage. The lounge combines a working cast iron range and historic oak cupboard dating back to 1686, with a flat screen TV with freeview and DVD player.

Sleeping is in two doubles plus one single and a sofa bed. Did we mention we rather like the conservatory too?

Shops, restaurant and pubs are between 200 yds and half a mile. You can find out more information plus see the photos we weren't able to display of Yattus here.

Mouras - Grasmere

october half term last minute self catering Jaw-dropping views from this fantastic Grasmere self-catering property. I think the icing on the cake is that you can take two dogs too. With walks from the door and pubs, shops and restaurants just 200 yds away this property is really very hard to beat.

The sleeping accommodation is 2 en-suite kings and 1 twin with a family bathroom. Downstairs the kitchen is immaculate, the dining room has one of the best views if not the best and in October the wood burning stove in the lounge is going to make the evenings very cosy indeed.

We brought you as many photos as we could, but we had to leave out some amazing shots of the bathroom and bedrooms and more of the external views. Please check them out and see whether this property has already been snapped up for half term here.
