Family self-catering holidays in England


The most cost effective ways for a family to holiday in England is either camping or staying in self-catering accommodation.

Self-catering accommodation is better than camping because the weather is not reliable in England. You may be fortunate and your holiday period coincide with the best of British summer weather but the window of opportunity is limited to May to September.

There is a multitude of varying options for family self-catering breaks; stay in holiday chalets, cottages, apartments, pine lodges or on holiday parks that also provide swimming pools, play parks for children and some entertainment.

Camping is fairly straightforward, people bring their own tents or caravans and look for a camp site. The disadvantages of camping are the effort entailed in erecting tents and laying out sleeping bags and air beds and the weather. People have been known to be rained off when everything is damp and unpleasant.

It is possible to holiday in ready prepared erected tents where you just arrive and can move your luggage inside.

At least children enjoy whatever accommodation you choose, both self-catering cottages and tents would be an adventure for them.

Stocking up on provisions for family self-catering

Unless you plan to stay in very remote locations, everywhere in England is within a few miles of a supermarket. With self-catering, you personally provide all your own food and drink which makes it a less expensive holiday for families with children.

Children also like cooking on a camping stove, endless picnics and barbecues.
