7 Reasons Why You Should Choose a Self-Catered Holiday!

Holidays, the word simply conjures up relaxation – freedom from chores, deadlines, and responsibility. So why might you want to include washing up as a part of your holiday? Self-catered holidays in serviced apartments, such as the luxury apartments at The Highland Club, are an indulgence – a refinement on everyday life. You have all the comforts of home, options in the kitchen and more when you decide to stay in a self-catered accommodation.

To win you over completely, we’ve listed more reasons just based around the kitchen why you should choose to go on a self-catered holiday:


If you want cupcakes at 1am? Bake them! You are not limited by closing times of restaurants. More so, you are not limited purely to your kitchen when you stay self-catered. If you want to have breakfast at home, a picnic at lunch and to dine in a restaurant for dinner – you can. Every option is open to you.

A luxury home away from home

Enjoy the hotel treatment of The Highland Club, with the never-ending choice of food you get in your own kitchen. Instead of trying to pack clothes for 5 people for 2 weeks, there’s a washing machine with tumble dryer – no more expensive hotel laundrette! All the equipment needed for a home cooked meal is conveniently provided alongside the facilities of a hotel. What could be better?

Still fancy a bit of the hotel experience? We’ve got that covered too! If you don’t feel like making the beds today or you fancy fresh towels in the bathroom – no problem. Just let us know before you head out in the morning and we’ll quickly whizz round.

 Your own private space

Your self-catered apartment is a home away from home. You get to enjoy your own space without having to worry about room service knocking on the wrong apartment door. There is no need to split the family with two separate hotel rooms for mum, dad, and the kids as families can stay together in one apartment. With your own private living room there as well, you are free to play monopoly together (with all the shouting that it involves) until late with no worries of disturbing other guests.


Staying in a self-catered apartment can be cheaper than staying in a hotel and solely dining in restaurants. With the flexibility of cooking your own food, you can cut down on costs – and then use the money you saved on more activities!


Instead of being confined to the tourist world of hotels and restaurants, self-catering allows you to have a more authentic experience. Go to the same supermarkets as locals and find out where the best place to buy certain ingredients or try more local ingredients or food! You can try the town butcher or visit nearby farm shops for truly fresh ingredients. The local world of food opens up to you.

Food requirements

Children and certain dietary requirements can complicate travelling due to food choices that may be necessary. With home cooking, this problem is eliminated. If you have a son who only eats pasta with cheese, or a daughter who is severely allergic to peanuts, you can avoid the daily fuss with restaurants as you have the same flexibility with food as you do at home.

We hope you are convinced, and enjoy your self-catered holiday with The Highland Club! It is an unforgettable experience for everyone.
