Holiday Cottages and Self Catering Holiday FAQs

Does Self Catering mean bed linen is provided at the Cottages?

Bed linen and towels are provided at the properties although we would ask that you use your own towels to take to the local beaches, as constant washing of sandy towels can damage our washing machines.
