Self Catering

There’s nothing that affords you the winning combination of comfort and freedom like a good self-catering break and you’ll find a wide variety of options around the city to suit all tastes.

Whether you’re looking for urban accommodation within walking distance of the city centre, or prefer to lose yourself in the idyllic countryside, there are several fantastic self-catering properties in the local area.


Spreading the entire width and breadth of Colchester and the surrounding area there is a huge choice when it comes to the location of our self-catering properties. You may want to position yourself in the historic centre of the city – perfect for leisure or business and within easy reach of all the major transport routes, or perhaps you would prefer to wake up to the sound of nature on your doorstep by locating near the picturesque Roman River Valley

Perhaps a coastal break is more your thing and you are looking for somewhere to stay out towards the coastal resorts of Clacton-on-Sea, Walton-on-the-Naze and Frinton-on-Sea. Alternatively you could head westwards and head to the villages of Earls Colne, Wakes Colne and Fordham in the Colne Valley.

Luxury Accommodation

Of course, self-catering no longer means you’ll be slumming it either. If the properties themselves - located in luxury barns, lodges and cottages - aren’t enough to whet your appetite, you'll be able to find many additional facilities that you can take advantage of.

A dip in the pool or hot-tub, perhaps? Don't stop there! You can also enjoy discounted golf and spa days, private estates and gym facilities - all these wonderful additions will help to enhance your memorable break in Colchester.
