self-catering holidays with a difference

Generously Equipped...

Self-catering holidays are very popular – and with good reason. Having your own space, and the freedom and privacy to please yourselves in a relaxing home-from-home environment are just some of the reasons to choose to a self-catering holiday cottage.

But, let’s face it, staying in a luxury hotel also has its pluses. Not least, that feeling of escapism that comes from being able to just throw some pyjamas and a toothbrush in an overnight bag, without a care for the boring everyday stuff such as washing-up liquid and bin bags!

Well, here at Tredarrup Farm we like to think we bring you the best of both worlds.

Luxury self-catering holidays where we’ve taken care of everything for you. Where you can arrive to a kitchen full of your favourite foods and a bathroom adorned with luxury toiletries. So you can finish work, quickly pack an overnight bag and escape.

You’ll find your cottage equipped with everything you might need whilst you’re here. Plus you’ll find lot of lovely luxury extras that we hope will make your holiday feel just that extra bit special. 

We like to think of it as self-catering with knobs on!
