I don’t want to harp on about where’s great to visit for an autumnal break for another week, but it has been very strongly pointed out to me that the UK is extremely beautiful at this time of year too. So, in the interest of keeping everyone sweet – especially my patriotic fellow-countrymen who I will be attending Guy Fawkes events with – I have chosen properties that have special offers on at the moment. So, there you go patriots: chic autumn treats in the UK, all of which are beautiful at this time of year and offering you a great deal. What could be more British than that!
