Best Self-Catering Holidays for 2023

Book a break for 2023 and have something to look forward to this year. With the covid pandemic, cost of living challenges and global woes of 2022, now it’s more important than ever to look after yourself and ensure you have a break to look forward to this year. When it comes to UK breaks, Country Cottages Online features a truly inspiring choice of self-catering holidays for 2023.

Why Book a Self-Catering Holiday in the UK in 2023

Now that holidaying abroad is so much easier again, you may be wondering why holiday in the UK ? Well simply, there’s no place like home. Holidaying abroad can be a wonderful experience but taking a break in the UK can be comforting and truly enjoyable too. Some holidaymakers (particularly those with dogs) may just prefer to holiday in the UK so they can take the pooch away too easily, whereas some may prefer to jet off abroad and book a short break or a few days away in Britain.

Even if you only have 3 or 4 days to escape on a UK break, self-catering cottages can be a great choice as Britain has so many beautiful places to explore; from Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty to National Parks, from serene countryside to a stunning coastline, and from pretty villages to historic towns. Then, there is the choice of England, Wales, Scotland or Ireland; each with its own unique appeal and attractions. There are so many undiscovered areas and corners to discover, that you can be sure of a new adventure each time.

With budgets in mind too, for most people this year, self-catering can be a great way to keep to a budget on holiday where you can cook at your home from home rather than dining out too much which can get pricey quickly. With kitchen facilities, you can even make packed lunches to take out which isn’t always easy in hotels or bed and breakfast accommodation.
