What to pack!


Packing for your holiday can be one of the most daunting tasks. Trying to prepare for every weather and activity takes some of us days of consideration and planning. Whilst others throw a few essentials in a bag and away they go! 

We are here to help. Firstly, before we throw a list of essential items to pack your way, we thought we'd start with what's already there, ready and waiting at your holiday cottage. So tick them off your list and don't worry about it! See the full list of items provided in your holiday cottage here.
