Thurs 25 August 2011
With such variety available, there is no single way to go self-catering. Whether you want to stay in a yurt, camper van or a swish mansion with all mod-cons, or to reside on water or on land, there is sure to be something for everyone!
Ride in retro heaven in a VW Camper Van
Poppy Dorset Camper Hire, Broadwey, Weymouth
From £400 per week, sleeping five, £80 per person
This cherry red 1972 camper has to be the coolest way to cruise the English coastline on four wheels. With two “bedrooms” and a kitsch leopard print interior, Poppy has space for five and includes a TV and a mini kitchen with a cooker, fridge and even a sink! Based in Dorset she comes armed with a BBQ so that you can park by the beach and get grilling!
The beach villa where the sun always shines – inside and out
Beach Sun Retreat, Dymchurch, Kent
From £1,200 per week, sleeping five, £240 per person
This three bedroom villa has it all: a cinema room with a popcorn maker, a prime beach-front location and even a real sunlight room. Yes, that’s right a real sunlight room. This fabulous retreat is one of the first in the country to have installed “Real Sunlight’s” innovative health-giving sun simulators. The sun room is part of the expansive St-Tropez style lounge allowing guests to top up their tan without setting foot outside. Other must-try features include vinyl decks, which you can spin and mix to your heart’s content. If all that isn’t enough to keep you entertained there is a Jacuzzi bath and the beach literally is your back yard.
Go glamping – yurt style
Luxury Cornish Yurts, Merrymeet, Liskeard, Cornwall
From £350 per week, sleeping five, £70 per person
Instead of wrestling with the sleeping bag on your next camping trip, book a stay at this lavish yurt camp. A trio of hand-crafted, lined tents that sleep five a-piece, they are fully furnished to ensure that guests are comfortable and content at all times. Each yurt also has a spacious kitchen in the adjacent barn, which includes a dining area and leather sofas for post dining relaxation. There is also a decking area with BBQ and table and chairs so that guests can make the most of the good weather. Once you go yurt, you will never go back!
Live like royalty on your next holiday and book a castle
C17th Castle, Clevedon, Somerset
From £6,695 per week, sleeping 16, £437 per person
For a change of pace on your next holiday why not live the high-life in this stunning secluded castle with your friends and family? Housed over four floors in an octagonal keep, the castle sits in the centre of a stunning cobbled courtyard. It has eight en suite bedrooms, several of which are in the outlying turrets, so privacy is guaranteed. Set in an acre of secure, private land, it is an ideal choice for letting the kids run free and let off steam. If that’s not enough there is also a Jacuzzi and a private indoor pool to keep you entertained.
