October Half Term Holidays

Make the most of Cornwall’s mild climate and Indian summers with an October half-term holiday in St Ives. Book one of our stylish self-catering holiday cottages by the sea and enjoy crowd-free beaches, world-class restaurants and divine days out at Cornwall’s finest attractions. Autumn is one of the best times to take the plunge and try surfing, as the swell picks up and the water is still warm from the summer. And if you prefer to don walking boots rather than a wetsuit, you can step out onto dog-friendly golden beaches and encounter all sorts of wildlife along the stunning South West Coast Path.

Bag a luxury home away from home and enjoy the treasures of Cornwall for an October half-term holiday in St Ives. Once the summer crowds have left you can embrace the beauty of the region’s deserted beaches, stroll along the stunning coast path and take in the gob-smacking scenery, or even take a dip in the ocean that’s still balmy from the summer rays.

If food is your passion there’s no better time to dine on Cornwall’s bounty – in autumn the hedgerows are bursting with berries and herbs, the seafood is abundant and local farms are still yielding plenty of produce that’s served up in world-class restaurants within hours of being picked.

On the doorstep of your luxury holiday cottage you can also enjoy an array of family days out – from surfing and kayaking to Halloween-themed activities at the Tate St Ives, National Trust estates, the National Maritime Museum and the Eden Project.

Whether you spend your days visiting the region’s finest attractions or soaking up the scenery bathed in magical autumnal light, come home to a cosy cottage within a pebble’s throw of the sea, witness the early evening sunsets and hunker down by the wood-burner for quality time playing board games, watching movies or cooking up a feast of fresh local ingredients.

All of our properties are decked out with everything you need for a memorable half-term holiday for all ages. The seasonal dog ban on St Ives’ beaches is lifted at the start of October and we have plenty of dog friendly cottages where your hound can join you on holiday for free.

October half-term breaks are subject to a minimum 7-nights unless booked at short notice.

  • Look out for spooky goings on in St Ives and Halloween events at Paradise Park.
