Bed linen, towels & inventory

Bed linen & towels

All of our properties include bed linen and towels as standard! So that's why they're not mentioned in our brochure descriptions. A change of linen is supplied if you're staying in the same property for two weeks or more but you will need to bring your own cot bedding if you need it.

A change of towels is also provided for each week but please don't take them outside - you should bring your own beach towels if you want to take them out and about with you.

Cottage inventory

To help you decide what you need to bring, the following list of items is included at all of our properties. If there are items that you think should be included as standard at each property then please let us know, as we review this list each year.
