Dog owners often prefer to stay in a self-catering property because they tend to have much more space, outdoor areas and many are marketed as being welcoming of pets.
Because these properties tend to be cottages or houses, you have plenty of room to have your own privacy if you’re travelling with the family or a group – it means that the kids can play together and not be in your way and with separate sleeping areas, you can choose to stay up later if you wish.
Those of you travelling in groups or with extended family may find this a good option as there are often several cottages in the same area, giving you the chance to holiday together without getting under each other’s feet.
