Host Writer
Published 17/08/2020 Late Availability Siren for September Late Summer Breaks!


September is a wonderful time to get away for a late summer break. The weather is (hopefully) still warm but not too scorching, and the pace of life seems to slow down even at the most popular destinations, allowing the time and space to explore.

So if you weren't able to get away for a summer holiday break this year, we think you deserve to treat yourself to a September staycation!

We've hand-picked some amazing and truly different places to stay, and all currently have selected dates available to book during September. Browse the list below and choose your favourites!
