BOSTON, England, October 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The end of the summer holidays has arrived and for those with children, that means getting stuck into the academic year once again. However, for those without children, the end of the summer holiday period offers a great window of opportunity in terms of taking a well-earned break.

A lot of people avoid the price increases that inevitably accompany the school holidays in summer by putting their holiday plans off until the kids are back at school. This represents good financial sense if you are not tied to school dates in terms of the plans you make to get away. Traditionally, September is a busy time in the holiday industry because people are keen to make the most of the temperate climate and calmer, quieter surroundings.

This is absolutely true for holidays in the UK, or so-called 'staycations', as well as holidays abroad. Companies that provide holiday homes and self-catering breaks in the UK like Mill Farm Leisure see good business in September and October because they serve such a welcome purpose for those who want to experience the end of summer and the beginning of autumn in attractive surroundings and at their own leisure.

The team behind expects September and October 2012 to follow a similar trend and they are already receiving plenty of inquiries from individuals, couples and groups for whom the lure or rural England is at its strongest in the autumn, when the countryside is arguably at its most relaxing and its most visually appealing. A number of customers also frequent Mill Farm leisure due to their holiday cottages with hot tubs, the perfect luxury.

The autumn is also a popular season with campers keen to experience the great outdoors before the winter sets in. Those who provide accommodation and services for campers and caravan enthusiasts also see plenty of activity in September and October from nature lovers and individuals drawn by the thrill of outdoor pursuits and the peace of the rural retreats. Why not try Mill Farms log cabin with hot tubs and fishing.

The rural appeal of holiday retreats around the UK is heightened by the harvest festival season, which is already underway and which runs into October, bringing with it parties, celebrations and plenty of great food and drink.
