Save with self-catering this autumn

Self-catering holidays in many of Britain’s holiday hotspots are more than 40% cheaper in the autumn, compared with peak season weeks, a TripAdvisor survey reveals.

Self-catering holidays look great value in the weeks before half-term, with rentals 46% cheaper in Cornwall, 44% cheaper in Devon and 40% cheaper in Dorset, compared with summer prices.

Rates are much lower across the UK, with savings from 17% in other popular destinations.

The only exception is London, where holiday rentals remain relatively steady (a rise of 3%), reflecting a pattern in other European cities.

“Autumn holidays offer hope of good weather, without the crowds and higher rental rates of summer,” says TripAdvisor’s Laurel Greatrix.

“For groups, holiday rentals are a great choice, with outdoor space, living rooms and extra bedrooms; things you might not find in other accommodation options.”

TripAdvisor notes that summer rental rates of £373 per bedroom per week in Cornwall fall to only £203 in the weeks leading to October 21.

A £400 saving over October half-term week is available through Beach Retreats at Blue Bay Beach House in Mawgan Porth, North Cornwall, sleeps 20 with sea views and parking for ten cars, for £2,100 from October 25 (www.beachretreats.co.uk/ 01637 861005).
