Families, Friends and More

Self-catering is an ideal way to holiday in Beamish. You take away some of the pressure that appears when staying in a hotel or b and b - you must eat your meals at this time, you must order from this menu. 

Eat what you want, whenever you want it. And of course that's particularly good if anyone in your party suffers from food allergies or has other dietary requirements. We know many people who consider a holiday cottage as the perfect way to wind down after a busy urban lifestyle - sleep in, take lazy walks through the countryside and take more time over meals. 

For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
