Self-catering in Sidmouth

If you want a holiday that is free from hotel time tables, designated breakfast times or any other constraints, then you should look at the range of self-catering accommodation options in and around Sidmouth.  

Sidmouth’s self-catering properties come in a range of shapes and sizes, so finding the right property for your holiday is simple. From family friendly cottages to pet friendly holiday homes, romantic getaways, apartments and more, you’ll find the perfect place to stay while visiting Sidmouth.  

Perfect for large groups 

If you’re planning a getaway with a group of friends or a large family unit, self-catering is often the best option. There are often several cottages in the same area, giving you the chance to holiday together without getting in each other’s way or you could rent out a large house or series of apartments within the same building allowing you to easily meet up without having to sacrifice your own privacy.  

Self-catering is also a great option for families with small children. You can allocate separate sleeping areas, plus without regimented meal times and the chance to store and prepare your own food, it’s easy to have dinner at different times and to ensure that you always have their favourites on hand. Because self-catering properties are a real home from home, they are much less informal and uniform than hotel rooms, so those with young children who are used to a routine will feel much more settled in familiar surroundings, while those who need additional help and space, for instance wheelchair users, will find the extra room helpful for moving around and socialising with the rest of the people in their group.  

Having your own private outdoor space, like you do when hiring a cottage rather than staying at a B&B or in a hotel, means you have plenty of room for the kids to play and your own personal tanning area! In the summer months you can also use them for setting up a BBQ or for dining alfresco!  

Dog friendly 

While Sidmouth does have dog friendly hotels and B&Bs, pet owners tend to lean towards self-catering properties because they tend to have much more space and outdoor areas that you can use to your heart’s content. Again, they’re much more like a home from home, especially the quaint cottages and rented houses and apartments, so you and your dog can easily come and go as you wish.  

Many of the dog friendly properties also like to supply little treats for your four legged friends, like treats, beds and more!  

Grab some bargains 

We all like value for money and we love a good deal too, if you’re on the hunt for a last minute booking or a special offer, make sure to check the self-catering accommodation options – as many of them are privately owned you’ll find that there is more scope for a last minute get away or a cheaper deal than with other properties. This also makes them ideal for those of you travelling on a budget!  

Something a little different 

If you’re looking for accommodation with a difference, the self-catering ones are the best place to start. As well as the more traditional options like chalets, cottages, houses and apartments you can also find a host of more unusual places to call home during your time in Sidmouth. You can find everything from barn conversions to tree houses offered on a self-catering option – perfect for those that want their accommodation to be as special as Sidmouth itself.  

Alternatively, you could always take a look at going camping or staying in a caravan for a more rustic self-catering break? Caravan sites are a great choice for those of you wanting to keep an eye on your spending or you if you’re travelling with children, staying at a holiday park with onsite facilities might be more for you.
