Self Catering Holidays UK

Dorset is the perfect setting for a self catering break. With seemingly endless sights to see and activities to enjoy, the flexibility to eat what you want, when you want is simply ideal. There’s also the bonus of being able to properly prepare sandwiches and picnics for trips to the beach or long days out... Not to mention keeping a few ice creams in the freezer and a bottle of wine in the fridge. It is a holiday after all.

Whether you are indulging in a lazy breakfast in comfort or grabbing a light lunch on the go, self catering holidays put you in charge.


Self catering breaks for everyone

Self catering holidays suit everyone. If you are a couple enjoying a romantic getaway, why not cook up a range of delicious dinners to enjoy together? Perhaps you could follow dessert with a dip in your own private hot tub, if you choose this self catering luxury accommodation option.

On the other hand, if you are planning a break with a big group or family, the ability to feed everyone what they want, when they want is a great way to ensure a happy holiday.  

Also, some of our caravans are pet-friendly. Why not ask about bringing your dog along and truly make it a holiday for the whole family?

Whatever your group size or plans, our self catering holiday accommodation puts you in charge of your schedule. Cater to your tastes and budget, and make the most of your time in this beautiful part of the world.
