They are also so much affordable than hotels as well as offering you exclusive use of facilities. 

These can include a swimming pool, hot tubs, games rooms - and there is usually a choice of living areas for people with different TV/NetFlix tastes.

Crepe Farmhouse near Bridport in Dorset. Sleeps 17 in 8 bedrooms

Maybe you'd prefer a remote farmhouse in the heart of a National Park surrounded by an autumn gold landscape. And, with the summer having departed, there are some lovely deserted beaches to explore with sea-shore rambles.

So, rather than finding yourself writing Christmas cards in December saying "We really must get together again" - start planning an autumn break now for that get-together you keep promising each other.
