The joy of a self-catering holiday is the freedom to live at your own pace, and Lanarkshire is home to a breathtaking variety of quiet, quirky and quite unusual homes-from-home.  

Sweeney Apartments and Rooms in Motherwell are classy boltholes, perfect for a city break or romantic weekend getaway. Located close to fantastic restaurants, bars and the motorway network, these stylish self-catering properties offer luxury at affordable prices, with elegant décor and bright, airy rooms. All mod cons are provided. 

Cormiston Farm’s Georgian Farmhouse sleeps up to six people in three bedrooms (including a sumptuous four-poster) and the fantastic facilities are all the more appealing because the energy used to power them - and the rest of the farm - is all generated from renewable sources. Families, walkers and cyclists are all welcome, with secure sheds for the bikes, washdown facilities and a laundry service.  

Escape to The New Farmhouse, a beautiful Scandinavian-built lodge, for a self-catering holiday with a host of activities on the doorstep. Perfect for families, it’s located in the peaceful countryside close to the town of Biggar. The large secure garden with swings is ideal for children and if the weather does not allow for a barbecue, cosy up in front of the wood-burning stove inside instead. 

Self-catering enthusiasts are spoiled for choice on the spectacular Carmichael Estate, located between Lanark and Biggar. There are 13 cottages dotted around the historic estate, all pet-friendly, and each with its own story to tell. Choose from, among others, the two-storey Coachman’s House, the cosy two-bedroomed Eagle Lodge or Laundry Cottage, which was part of the original 18th-century mansion house laundry building.
