There are plenty of deals still available for those looking for a last-minute half-term getaway, if they know where to look. The UK’s largest private rentals website, HomeAway Holiday-Rentals still has thousands of holiday homes with availability this October, both at home and away. From apartments in the heart of popular resorts, to secluded houses and villas with pools, there are plenty of unique private homes for a memorable family break.  

As holidays are a key time for re-establishing family bonds, a private home rental is the ideal solution as everyone can relax together, but still has their own space to spread out. There are many large homes suitable for breaks with extended family too. In addition, many properties provide diverse leisure facilities to keep everyone entertained. Whether the family enjoys action-packed adventures or likes to get away from it all, there will be a home to suit them on www.HomeAway.co.uk .

Below are some holiday homes in Cornwall for those looking to stay in the UK, while for sun-starved families, a property in the Costa del Sol or the Canary Islands could be the perfect antidote.
