Budget to Luxury in Self Catering Cottages, Apartments and Lodges
If you looking for a golfing break then there is some great self catering accommodation that will save you a lot of money in comparison to a hotel or B&B. A cottage, which can sleep any where from 2 to 20, provides a home from home experience and there are plenty of luxury cottages if you fancy something a little different.
Another good self catering option is an apartment.... but don't be fooled these are no boring flats, you will find lots of luxurious apartments that are just the place to unwind after your round of golf.
Finally it is also worth considering a holiday lodge. Now while this may conjure up an image of a cold caravan, nothing could be further from the truth. The lodges and log cabins you will find on this site offer quality comfortable accommodation for anything from 2 to 10 people..... a budget cost but not budget accommodation.
