“That’s the point!” Darryl laughs. “I want to escape… self-catering means I can do just that – no waking up with the thought of rushing down to breakfast to fight for the last rasher of bacon, no clock watching to ensure we get a table for dinner and no worrying about being too loud, messy or that the dog may interrogate the next passer-by”.
“It’s brilliant,” Darryl continues, “I wake up, sip a freshly brewed coffee whilst reading a book and plan my day at leisure. After a long, lazy day at the beach there’s no worry of being embarrassed about traipsing sand through a hotel, it’s just straight back to my ‘home’ where I feel completely at ease. For dinner, we have the flexibility of choosing whether to lavish in a local eatery or do it ourselves with a home-made favourite. To end our day, it’s a game of scrabble whilst relaxing on comfy sofas – not sat on the end of a bed crammed in a hotel room.”
Darryl concludes, “For a night away with Lou, my wife, of course I’ll treat her to a luxury spa break in a high end hotel, but with the family in tow self-catering gives us everything we could possibly need”.
It seems Darryl has self-catering down to a T. For space, comfort, flexibility and freedom a self-catering break sounds like the perfect option – I might have to try it myself!
