Country type self catering accommodation for 2 people in SW England in June, near interesting place we can visit by car.
We are not really interested in big cities and would find that sort of driving too stressful, so cheap accommodation a little out of the country towns would be best. We could do day trips to the coast or other places of interest. We only need small fairly basic places, staying for up to a week at a time.
We are an elderly couple looking for a 1 bedroom self contained place in June 2015. Looked up your suggested site and should get one for approx $320- 350 per week. Maybe stay at a couple of places. Need to fit around seeing relatives in Stroud and maybe Buckingham. almost 5 years ago
If you want to go a little further, go across the Severn Bridge to South Wales. In west Wales there is a lovely place called fforest. Beautiful countryside, lots of activities from walking in forest/or on beach, good food etc. www.coldatnight.co.uk. We stayed in a Dome and loved it. almost 5 years agoAnswered by Jane Cavanagh via WorldNomads.com
Just a thought. Travelodge do early saver rooms. You'll probably find it less expensive when travelling around to incorporate hotel stay as well as self catering. Just searched for Cornwall for you and found rooms as little as £29 per night. Obviously, you have to get your meals somewhere which then costs extra although, there are inexpensive places to eat along the way.
Also, I don't know whether you took notice but when using hotels.com your accrue nights so when you've stayed 10 nights using a hotel on their site which has welcome points, you get 1 night free.
The earlier you book, the better deal sometimes. It may also be advantageous to look on the map and plan where you want to go and email the various guest houses you find. Trip advisor is somewhere else you could look. almost 5 years ago
Try villages just in from the coast around wheymouth and brighton.
anything south of london tends to have good public transport as well as easy roads.
Look into bed and breakfasts too. Or even the PUB accommodation. Definitely a unique way to get the local color. And also check the bathroom situation for each stay :-) sounds daft but my american friends got freaked with an old historic hotel they stayed at because there was 1 bathroom to 2 rooms. almost 5 years agoAnswered by paula via WorldNomads.com
Most accommodation these days have en suite rooms....even little pubs. Neither Weymouth or Brighton are South West. I'd probably head for Devon or Cornwall perhaps staying along the coast working your way from Lyme Regis down to Darmouth, Plymouth, Truro, Penzance, Tintagel. There's a beautiful hotel overlooking Tintagel castle called Camelot Castle Hotel, not cheap but good food and 'shabby 'chic' decor. Then there's Glastonbury, Bath and so on. I could go on for ever! Contact me and I can send you some leaflets if you like. almost 5 years ago
