Best hotels for autumn breaks

07 October 2016

If you're mourning the passing of the summer months, perhaps it's time to treat yourself to a trip that will put that spring back in your step.

Of course, as we slide into autumn, the sparkling ghost of Christmas Yet to Come glittering in the not too distant future, it makes sense to save our pennies and choose an alluring English destination rather than splashing the cash on a trip to the continent.

Fortunately, our partners offer a range of accommodation options that are ideal for admiring the flaming colours of the season. Here are a few of our favourites:
