At Sykes, our self-catering properties are great for a variety of purposes, but one thing we seldom talk about is how great they are for city breaks. Now, I know ‘self-catering holiday cottage’ is probably not at the top of your accommodation list for the next time you’re planning on hitting up your favourite city, but I’m here to tell you why it certainly should be!
Eat what you want, when you want
Whether you fancy a quick bite or a sit down meal, cities are full of a vast amount of culinary delights. If you’re not a fan of eating out or have dietary requirements, sometimes it can be much easier to just cook for yourself! This is where a self-catering property comes in; you can get your ingredients from local market places in the city then head back to cook and eat at your own leisure in the surrounds of a lovely holiday property. Perfect!
More space than a hotel
I’m certain you’ll be spending more of your city break enjoying the city than you will be in your accommodation but a bit of extra space never hurt anyone, and our properties have that in abundance! Many of our city break properties also have a terrace or small garden, which is ideal if you fancy a quiet drink outside one evening.
Good for non-drivers… and drivers
One of the positives about city breaks is the easy travel! Cities are a breeze to get to via public transport, so they’re a great alternative if you’re not a driver. On the other hand, many of our city break properties have their own parking available, which makes them a great choice for drivers, too – we all know how expensive city centre parking can be and choosing a self-catering property with its own parking can really help cut costs!
