Food staples and equipment

Unlike any other holiday, you will need all of your basic food essentials such as Tea and coffee, condiments, dry goods, tins, etc. Remember you don't need to take your whole kitchen with you there will be shops locally to your caravan for fresh food purchases. However, you will need to stock your caravan with cooking utensils, pots and pans, plates, glasses, cutlery, and other items needed for food preparation.

You can buy caravan electrics essentials online also.


Depending on the weather and the time of year you'll need a variety of indoor and outdoor entertainment and activities. Board games, packs of cards, and books are always good to pack. If you are taking a TV, don't forget a good selection of DVDs or games consoles in case of bad weather. Don't forget outdoor games such as football or cricket equipment.
