If you have a DVD player in the cottage, definitely take a few great movies. It's so enjoyable to curl up in the evening and watch a classic film. Although you can buy your essential food and drink items locally, it's great to have them with you so you can make a sandwich or a cup of coffee as soon as you arrive. We're often asked which is the best place to stay, and it's so hard to answer, it really depends what you are looking for.

Families, Friends and More

The best part of going on holiday with a family is the sense of comfort you all get when walking into a Isle Of Lewis holiday cottage - where everything there is designed to make your stay better! Young children can make your stay even more fun, and we have a few suggestions of things to bring. 

First of all, make sure you remember their shampoo, since not all stores in Isle Of Lewis will carry tear-free shampoo. Snacks for the car can make the trip to Isle Of Lewis much more pleasant - bored kids with low blood sugar are not the perfect companions. 

Clothes for the full range of weather; just because you don't think that it looks good outside in the rain it doesn't mean that the little ones will agree.
