I dont quite know what I was on as we dont normally. Hwoever now not having to find old sheets at theback of the airing cupboard I am pleased. I am taking duvet covers for the dsses though to use a sleeping bag in, presume they presume oyu use sheets and blankets?

Are the bath towels ok?

I had linen hire the only time we went to a camp site place (a bit like Key Camp) amd the bed linen was a funny paper like material. Was sheets and pillowcases. Wasn't pleasant to sleep on esp as I have dry skin.

oh poo

We had linen hire with Eurocamp last year - it was fine! Hotel type white cotton sheets, bound in polythene from the laundry, with white hotel style towels too - was no problem at all!

Hope that helps.

that is hwat i want to hear.
did oyu take a divet as well or use the blankets?

Just think of the laundry that your won't have to do on your return home.

I could cope with dodgy sheets (assuming clean) just take pjs for all just in case! grin

Used their blankets. They were ok.

BadgersArse Sun 26-Jul-09 19:40:29

God yes! am delighted

Canvas Hols are fine too.
Leaving it behind all dirty and damp as you cram the car full of other stuff brings on a moment of deep joy grin

Take a bathmat though, and tea-towels.

Awful. Cheap, very retro (as in old!) and not made for comfort or warmth IMO

BadgersArse Sun 26-Jul-09 20:10:05

oh noes
so the quility seems to vary a LOT>
yes to bathtowel - almsot forogt that

BadgersArse Sun 26-Jul-09 20:10:30

we have two "bad" s and two "good" s

tassisssss Sun 26-Jul-09 20:12:01

we've done it with keycamp and like WW says it's fine

white sheets very well starched, white towels and grey/blue itchy blankets but all seemed v clean

we'd do it again

(the welcome pack OTOH was CRAP!!)

BadgersArse Sun 26-Jul-09 20:13:08

oh yes welcome pack does look shiteola
the blankets are always there,
we use them UNdEr our sheets to make the bed softer

BadgersArse Sun 26-Jul-09 20:13:35

not bath towel

We've just come back from a Siblu hol. I took my own towels but they made up the beds with white sheets and pillow cases and left hideously flowery duvet covers folded on the beds. It was fine. We never needed the blankets or duvets as it was too warm - just used the duvet cover as a sheet.

BadgersArse Sun 26-Jul-09 20:18:01

were they nice qualidee

PuppyLoves Sun 26-Jul-09 20:18:09

Its always clean

BadgersArse Sun 26-Jul-09 20:21:39

i should hope so!
ir eally am mystified as to why i ordered it

Ponders Sun 26-Jul-09 20:23:01

Did they sneakily include it as a default, so you had to uninclude it by ticking a box?

BadgersArse Sun 26-Jul-09 20:23:40

no was just looking.
its 27 for the kids and 15 for us

Ponders Sun 26-Jul-09 20:26:03

Blimey! That is a lot in a tent shock

Can't you cancel it & just take empty duvet covers to sleep inside? (It wouldn't take up too much wine space...)

Enjoy the luxury . You are on holiday after all.

We have cottage this year - linen included, towels a fiver (to cover the laundering). Bargain.
