Families prefer self catering holidays to any other type of accommodation because of the varied advantages they allow. Cheap holidays of a reasonable quality are hard to find and cottages offer the best value for money when all things are considered. A holiday cottage is much more spacious and comfortable than a tent or caravan, there are indoor bathrooms, a proper kitchen, usually a freezer and plenty of room including a garden for the children to play in.
The other type of family holiday that goes down well with families that have young kids are farm holidays that allow children to find out more about what happens on a farm, what the farmer does, see the animals and spot interesting rural objects such as scarecrows and combine harvesters.
