Self catering accommodation is a good choice for families.  Many self catering cottages pride themselves on offering a home from home.  In a lot of cases self catering accommodation is a good option for both that homely feel and for holidaying on a budget.  Eating in and cooking at your self catering holiday home can keep costs down as eating out in the UK can sometimes end out being just as expensive as accommodation.  There are a number of reasons why you may be looking for family self catering accommodation and a number of advantages of self catering cottages you may not have considered.

Advantages of self catering cottages for families include:

  • a home from home environment – great for kids.
  • Many self catering cottages have gardens – check ads for details.  If you have a young family make sure that any garden is enclosed and child friendly.
  • Keeping costs down – many self catering cottages offer good value for money when you compare the costs with that of a hotel stay.  Add to this that you can eat in and cook at home and the savings really start to add up.
  • Child friendly cottage complexes or holiday villages – if you are happy staying on a cottage complex or holiday village with other families there are often good child friendly facilities at many self catering complexes such as games rooms, swings and even swimming pools at some.  Some cottage complexes are on farms with opportunties to meet the animals – great for kids!
  • Cots and high chairs – some self catering cottages pride themselves on being child friendly and have cots, high chairs or bunk beds.  Remember to check ads carefully when looking for a self catering cottage and set out your needs clearly to cottage owners.
