1. Prepare a Welcome pack and have fresh milk available- a few toiletries, tea, coffee,sugar- possibly a bottle of wine and leave fresh juice if children are coming.. Cleaning items are very handy and it means that they will try and clean up after themselves!!
2.Make up a typed Information Pack for them i.e. nearest amenities relating to Shops, Garages, Dentists, Doctors, plus the approximate distance from the Holiday Home.
3. Leave spares of light bulbs- instructions on how to use appliances, where to dispose of the rubbish, and leave a lighter ofr matches for the BBQ (out of the way of children!!)
4. Place leaflets from the Tourist Board of all the local attractions, and if required train and bus timetables.
