Why choose self-catering?

Rather than relying on a hotel for home comforts, why not immerse yourself in British culture by opting for self-catering accommodation. Whether you choose to stay in a quaint cottage in Cornwall or a town house in Scotland, you’ll enjoy the independent approach that self-catering brings.

Where should you stay?

Self-catering accommodation is available throughout Britain, whether that’s in historic towns, breathtaking villages or on beautiful islands. There are so many intriguing destinations in the UK you’ll be spoilt for choice! The wonderful thing about self-catering is you can choose a place to suit your budget. So whether you’re treating yourself to luxury accommodation or keeping things on the budget side, there are plenty of options to pick from.

If you’re looking for a stay that’s a little more rustic and potentially budget friendly, you could always check out sites such as Airbnb and One Fine Stay, which could see you live the life of a local in authentic surroundings.

What to expect?

A nice idea would be to pick up a British cookbook and experiment with British recipes while you stay in your self-catering accommodation. Your accommodation should come complete with all the appliances and utensils you need to prepare your own meals; don’t forget to shop for wonderful British produce to use in your British recipes!
