What is Self-Catering?

Self-catering offers the combination of comfort and flexibly. A self-catering property is usually a self-contained unit such as a house, cottage or flat where guests are provided with lodging and cooking facilities, but not meals.

Guests have exclusive use of the unit which includes living and sitting space, bedroom/s, bathroom/s and kitchen, and sometimes private outdoor space and designated parking.

Stays are typically for 1 week, but can range from 2 nights to several weeks. There is usually a fixed charge for the use of the property and its facilities.

Self-catering facilities can vary but at Bedwyns we provide a clear list with each property outlining what’s included. As standard, all our properties come with bedlinen and utilities included in the price you pay.

Guests are expected to ‘look after themselves’ for the duration of the holiday, although the owner of the accommodation can be contacted (usually by phone) at any reasonable time to provide assistance with property-related issues.

Self-Catering accommodation is usually cheaper (p.p.p.n) than hotels and guest houses for stays of longer than 2 or 3 nights, you usually  have more space, and you always have your own keys to come and go as you please.
