Advantages of staying in a self-catering holiday cottage

Self-catering accommodation is much cheaper during the winter and provides comfortable accommodation at a very reasonable price. The advantage of self-catering is that you ensure that you eat what you want. Any special diets such as low cholesterol or gluten free are easily managed. There is plenty of self-catering accommodation in the Dales, you can choose from barn conversion with stylish interiors, apartments, log cabins through  to traditional stone-built holiday cottages with open fires. All are fully equipped for good comfortable holidays and weekend breaks.

Because it's your 'home from home', self-catering accommodation provides that measure of freedom and comfort that is impossible in hotels and B&Bs. Drinks are available as and when you feel like putting the kettle on, or looking in the fridge. It's cost effective and the perfect accommodation if you just want a base in the Yorkshire Dales with the ability to come and go as you please.
