Choosing self catering doesn’t need to mean bringing the kitchen sink with you (even if you have little ones in tow)! Book a holiday at a well equipped cottage and your packing will be rather light.
Take Spring Cottage as an example, of a well equipped holiday cottage in Yorkshire. Here’s a list of what you need to pack and what you don’t!
What you need to pack
Personal items eg face cream, hair brush/toothbrush
Sun cream (yes even in Yorkshire)
Clothes (for all weathers)
Shoes (for all weathers)
Electricals – phone, tablet, laptop, chargers
Children’s special toys
What you don’t need to pack
Cotton wool & cotton buds
Teabags, coffee sugar
Salt and pepper
First aid box
Logs and kindling
Local area books
Buckets and spades
Toddler bed rail
Plastic cups, bowls and plates
Children’s knives and forks
Booster seat for dining table
Spring Cottage, as you can tell is very well equipped! Guests often comment how it’s a real home from home and that’s exactly what I’m trying to achieve. I’ve been on many self catering holidays myself and know how frustrating it is when for example, you go to wash your hands and there’s no soap by the basin, or you need a tissue and there’s none to be found.
It’s little things like this that although small enhance a stay in a self catering property. It’s these little things that Spring Cottage provides, because I too would want and indeed expect to find them in a self catering cottage.
If this is as important to you, on a self catering holiday to Yorkshire, as it is to me, when you know what you’ve got to do!
I look foward to welcoming you to Yorkshire! 😉
