With so many accommodation options available for holidays now, self-catering accommodation in Durham is still very popular for so many reasons.
While self-catering packages deter some people because they’d prefer having meals prepared, for others, it’s the best option to take real charge over their holiday or trip.
Whatever your reasons, self-catering accommodation doesn’t have to mean extra hassle and can often be more convenient. We’ve listed a few of our favourite reasons why below.
When choosing a self-catering holiday, there is a broad range of accommodation options to choose from. Perhaps an apartment would suit you best or maybe a cottage or villa. There is so much choice with this type of accommodation, enabling you to find a home away from home. You will have the privacy to come and go while choosing what you want to eat and when in the comfort of your own space. The accommodation will also be fully furnished, with everything you’d expect in your own home.
Self-catering properties often have more space than other options such as hotels or B&B’s as you are renting an entire apartment or cottage. Having a private space provides comfort, which is especially important when travelling in larger groups. This is an essential consideration when travelling with children and hauling around buggies, travel cots, and the like. Rather than filling one room with stuff, you also have a living space, kitchen, and bathroom.
Control Your Meals and Timings
This is a critical consideration for many people that lead them to choose self-catering. While it may be far from many people’s idea of a holiday, it can make a good trip even better for others. Deciding what to eat and when is helpful for those with dietary requirements, those with children, or those who want to save money on their trip. Self-catering places are fully equipped, so all you need to do is buy what you need locally or bring it with you. Mealtime Flexibility is an excellent perk of self-catering as there will be no limitations on set mealtimes and restricted use of facilities to certain hours. Even something simple like making, storing, and sterilising baby bottles is much easier in your own space.
Value for Money
Self-catering rentals usually provide value for money, especially for big groups and allow for precise budgeting, especially for groups. With everyone chipping in for expenses and accommodation, everything can be that bit more affordable, leaving money to enjoy adventures on your holiday.
