reading on the beach

This is the second part of our guide to what to take with you on a summer holiday.

A Good Book

Whether it’s for those lazy days on the beach, waiting to catch your flight or for some bed time reading, a good book will provide some essential boredom relief and a great way to relax and unwind.


Take all those essentials you will need during your stay such as toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, toothbrush, razors and moisturisers. Take any other bits the might consider essential but only try to take as much as you will need during your holiday, you don’t want your suitcases weighed down with loads of bottles.

Beach Towel

If you are visiting a Devon holiday cottages this summer then there is a very good chance you will at some point be heading to the beach. If this is the case then make sure you take a good beach towel to help dry you off and help stop the sand finding its way into every nook and cranny.


At some point during your holiday it’s inevitable that your children will become bored and inpatient so it’s a good idea to bring a few games along with you. These can be traditional board games you can break out during an evening or a particularly rainy day. They could be travel games that can be played in the car. Handheld games consoles such as the Nintendo DS that can be played anywhere and are certain to keep kids entertained for hours, they are also great fun for adults too.


This is perhaps the most important of all as without for passport, tickets or any reservation documentation your whole holiday could be ruined. Make sure you keep all these essentials in a secure place that you are unlikely to loose.
