Staying this weekend for the first time, in a silver plus 6-berth.

What do I need to take? Bedding? bed-linen? Basically everything I would take if I was camping apart from my tent and cooker??

HELP! confused

I stayed in one of these in the summer. We paid to have their bed linen, so I would guess if you haven't paid for that you need to bring it. Although we were on a sun holiday so maybe 'normal' guests get bed linen included anyway. Take towels, tea towels, washing up liquid and a cloth etc... They give you plenty of plates, cutlery, saucepans so you don't need any of that.

Hope that helps a bit.

Bedding may be provided, check what it says on the booking. Kitchen will have all the basics.

You will need towels, dish cloths washing up liquid.

Oh and you get duvets and pillows supplied regardless.

I would take a fan heater and electric blanket unless your caravan has central heating it will be cold, even if it has fan heaters.

Other random things on my list are:
Bath mat

If you are planning on cooking main meals:
Sharp knife
Grater (or buy grated cheese)
Very large saucepan or wok or slow cooker. The saucepans will be tiny.

Halloween costume for kids? They might have a Halloween event.

I'd add an airer to Peppermint's list. There's never enough clothes drying space in caravans and in such a small space that damp towel smell permeates everywhere!

I've stayed in static caravans with Hoseasons, but not Park. We had cooker, microwave, fridge, kettle, all bedding, heaters, tv, table and chairs, sofas, wardrobes and cupboards, shower, loo, sink, kitchen sink, mirrors (had a little dressing table.)

Needed to take - iron, washing up brush and liquid (obviously you can buy those when you get there), toiletries, towels, bath mat, extra hangers, food (can buy when there) tea etc, bed guard if needed for children.

Forgot to say the caravan already had cutlery, crockery and kitchen utensils such as saucepans. I can't remember if it had serving spoons and wooden spoon. Don't think it had a potato masher or peeler

Oops - just realised you are probably already there!
