Thinking about booking 17th october for 10 nights.
Will everything still be open?
And what is the weather normally like this time of year
There's a thread re October (on page 3) dated 20th July you may find of help
Places do start to close throughout October, so it will be getting a lot quieter around then. The weather can be quite nice - warm during the day although cooler in the evenings - but you also run the risk of showers or even storms. We went mid-October several years running and it was lovely, then one year it rained - and I mean torrential rain - almost the entire week.
