While we’ve all enjoyed the long warm summer this year, there’s something about those few weeks when the air turns cooler and you can feel the distinct change of season as summer turns to autumn. This is the best time for an autumn getaway to take in the fresh crisp air, and lucky for us, the upcoming Easter long weekend gives us ample opportunity.

Gumtree has thousands of short term and long term properties for rent any time of year; for a little taste over the Easter holidays, there are some top autumn getaways to entice you. In fact, you might even be tempted to take the rest of the week off and extend your stay.
