Hot chocolate season is back and we’re ready for an unbe-leaf-able Autumn!

Although the days may be shorter, whether you’re planning on a quieter getaway or a spooktacular stay we have plenty of reasons to love the fall season at Away Resorts… 


Autumnal walks 

Crisp mornings and dewy grass only mean one thing. Make sure you pack hiking boots and enjoy a scenic stroll or an exhilarating hike during your holiday.  

In the enchanting New Forest our beautiful woodland park Sandy Balls, we have a variety of trails and footpaths that weave through the trees and forest areas. If you take the time to look around and listen, you will begin to hear birds chirping and see the wild ponies grazing.  

Capture the magic of Autumn on your next beach walk at St Ives Bay and enjoy the Cornish coastline. With a coastal path leading straight to the sandy beach, be sure to layer the family up (including your pooches) and keep the winter blues at bay with a brisk walk.  

At Whitecliff Bay you have the choice of coastal or rolling hills, with a variety of different places to explore during your holiday. An ideal opportunity to relax and unwind whilst taking in the Isle of Wight picturesque shore.
