Plan your stay carefully

Time is a precious commodity, especially when you’re on holiday. Without a proper plan in place, you may find yourself wasting precious hours trying to figure out logistics or searching for things to do.

Have you ever felt like you missed out on exciting opportunities because you didn’t plan ahead? Don't worry; there’s a way to avoid these pitfalls!

To make the most of your time at Yellowtop:

  • Book your lodge in advance.

  • Research local attractions and outdoor activities.

  • Create an itinerary that allows you to explore the region thoroughly.

  • Pack essentials for your self-catering lodge stay.

Enjoy your time and experiences to the fullest with a well-thought-out plan.

Maximise comfort and convenience

One of the primary advantages of staying in a self-catering lodge is the ability to enjoy the comfort and convenience of a home away from home.

Take full advantage of the fully equipped kitchen to prepare meals according to your preferences. Stock up on groceries and supplies to ensure you have everything you need during your stay.

Here are some tips for staying at a self-catering lodge:

  • Create a comprehensive shopping list of essential food items.

  • Include ingredients for planned meals, snacks, beverages, and any special dietary requirements.

  • Estimate the duration of your holiday and calculate the amount of food you'll need accordingly.

  • Consider factors such as the number of meals you want to prepare, the number of people staying with you and any planned outings or dinners.

  • Take the opportunity to discover and taste local specialities or regional products. It can be a delicious way to immerse yourself in local culture and gastronomy.

Final recommendations

Make use of the services and facilities provided by the lodge to enhance your overall experience.

Each lodge at Yellowtop is equipped with its own private hot tub, allowing you to unwind and relax in style. We recommend bringing a pair of flip-flops for easy and hygienic access and an extra towel.

But you’ll receive one luxurious bath sheet and one soft hand towel upon arrival. These towels are included in your booking for a refreshing and indulgent bathing experience. For an added touch of luxury, we offer the option to book robes and slippers.

If you have a passion for fishing, we recommend bringing your own equipment. This way, you can fully immerse yourself in your fishing experience.


Embrace the serenity of Yellowtop, let the stresses of daily life melt away, and savour every moment of your getaway.
