Autumn. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. A time of transition, abundance and colour. Of golden mornings and fiery evenings, leaden boughs and copper leaves. And, with the summer crowds receding, it’s so quiet you can hear the furl and fall of every leaf.
Perfect for an adventure. With rooms available from just £29 this autumn and winter, it’s time to dig out your favourite woolly jumper, pull on your boots and get exploring.

A crowd favourite during the summer months, the coast takes on a different personality come autumn. Think brooding poetry and long, wistful looks from atop a windy cliff. A visit in the cooler months is a true sensory experience. Hear the crash of waves against the shore, feel the sea spray on your skin, taste the salt in the air and drink in the spectacular sunset reflecting off the restless waves.
Is there anywhere more gorgeous, more serene and more inspiring than the view from the mountains in autumn? Where better to appreciate Mother Nature’s colourful display than from the very top of it all. A seat from which you can watch mists pooling in the valleys, and trickles becoming streams becoming great gushing rivers. Capture it, remember it, because it will never look the same again.
Autumn is the season for walking boots, muddy paths, spectacular views and big pub lunches. While squirrels build up their winter stores and birds get ready for their long journey south, we take to the country paths and embrace the change. Autumn is when nature prepares for the longer nights and colder days ahead, a flurry of activity that makes for fascinating watching on long country walks.
Don your chunkiest knitted scarf, pick up your winter spiced latte and take yourself on an urban adventure amongst the twinkling lights. Enjoy the contrast between a toasty hostel room and a crisp city morning. Lose yourself in art galleries, museums, the best restaurants, theatre, trendy bars, hidden spots, quiet parks and bustling markets. They’re the places we go to be dazzled, to see fantastical things and to wonder at it all.
