6 Reasons Why September Holidays are the Best

The swallows are preparing to take flight, the garden spiders are busy weaving their webs from the rose hips, the late crimson blooms are unfurling beneath the ripened blackberry brambles, and the farmers look forward to the harvest moon…all signs that the month of September will soon be upon us.

Here are a handful of reasons why a September escape with Toad Hall Cottages could be just the ticket…

1. Quiet Corners and Peaceful Places

It’s what the West Country yokels call ‘grockle season’, when the primrose lanes get gridlocked, the shores are freckled by beach towels, and the pub gardens are laden with punters…but not so in September, the summer’s tale end, a time when you can enjoy the freedom of the highways and byways, the bliss of empty beaches (where your dog can run wild) and the beauty of unbothered paths.


2. Activities and Attractions

Just because the summer has past its zenith, it doesn’t mean that the West Country’s many tourists attractions come to a grinding halt. Far from it! It’s business as usual at the gates and turnstiles…with the added bonus of hardly any queues to contend with.

3. Deals and Discounts

September is a great time to take advantage of some bumper deals, just take a look at what’s on offer at Toad Hall Cottages as we steer towards the autumn season.

4. Exclusive Availability

When you book with Toad Hall Cottages out of season, you’ll find yourself with unfettered access to some of the most sought-after holiday properties in the whole of the South West region. Why not see for yourself when you visit our website, tailor-made for your every convenience.


5. Weather Set Fair

It looks like we’re in for an extra burst of summer sun, with this year’s record- breaking heatwave likely to extend into September, so make sure you pack your swimming cossies because it’s still beach weather a go-go.

6. Best Seats in the House

You won’t need to worry about missing out on an evening at your favourite holiday restaurant during the summer’s ebb. You’ll have no problem confirming that ‘table for two by the window’ at the lovely harbourside bistro you stumbled upon during your afternoon stroll. The quieter month of September is a wonderful time to explore the West Country’s historic market towns and fishing villages, away from the hustle ‘n’ bustle of the high season.
