Take things like tea, coffe, sugar, ketchup, bin bags, salt, pepper (I.e. all the basic's)
I've never had a problem with getting into the villa's - the queue doesn't last long. We tend to take swimming stuff in a seperate bag so that we can leave the car in the car park and go swimming before taking our cases and shopping down to the villa.
we stayed at the sherwood one, got there early ( about an hour early) and they allowed us to check into our villa. We went straight to the bike hire to get our bikes and then over to book our "extra's" - creche, spa etc. Glad we did this early as there was a huge ( and i mean HUGE) queue later that afternoon and many people were diasppointed with not getting the activities that they desired.
Bought lots of nice food from sainsburys on the way up as we cooked in the villa most nigts, only eat out one evening in the american rib-house style resturant.
definetly go to the spa, how relaxing!.
Thanks everyone. We are going to Elvenden Forest. Just looked at the weather though and looks like rain next week, but to be honest I am not that bothered as there appears to be so much to do. I have pre booked the mini soccer for my ds who is 4 but not anything else as he is too young for most things. I was going to take essentials like tea & coffee. Roll on Monday
