This is a quiet and nice place to stay. They also have the pickup service to take you to town centre and the restaurants and return. Very nice cottages, clean and perfect equipped for one or few few nights stay.

I'd imagine they'd have it on site, but I would plan on bringing some just in case. It also depends on what time you arrive as there may not be a lot of availability or shops open to find detergent if you needed it. Sorry not more specific but we did not do our laundry while we were on property.
