Q - Are there luggage space restrictions - A : No, bring as much as you think you will need, and we strongly
suggest you bring all your food shopping with you on arrival day - this means that you will not have to waste time
shopping on the mainland during your holiday. All your luggage is transported to your house from the Pier by

everything approx 100 yards from the pier to the house.
Q - Do I need to pack in any special way? - A: The boat trip over is on largely open-decked boats which means
that if the sea is rough or it is raining heavily luggage can get wet - we recommend covering luggage with bin
liners to be sure it stays dry. Another tip is to use smaller rather than larger cases as these are easier to
handle on and off the boats.
