My parents in law have everything we would use at home. Cot, high chair, rocker, toys, nappies wipes etc. we have a small car so it saves us having to bring it all with us.

My parents only live 5 minutes away, but still have built up a collection of things for my kids for when we go there (which is quite often).
When DS1 was born they bought a portacot which didn't get used all that much but was still handy. Mums also built up a collection of toys so there's plenty for both boys to play with now. She always has wipes and nappy sacks. I used to leave a few nappies there for DS1 but with 2 kids now it's easier just to bring everything in my nappy bag.
Once DS started solids they bought a high chair for him to use there, and he's now upgraded to a booster chair that sits on a regular chair so the high chair can now be used by DS2. I've also left behind some cups, spoons etc for feeding and mum has bought a few plates, bowls and drink bottles.
They have also taken great delight in buying different outside things for the backyard so the boys now have their own personal playground at their nanna and papa's which I think is lovely.
My mum has travel cot & bedding for it. Portable high chair seat that straps to dining chair.
A cheapie stroller. And baby wipes
MIL has a travel cot, highchair & wipes.
Its great as saves me carting stuff everywhere
My parents live within walking distance and have the full set up including a bed, port a cot, high chair, bouncer, carseat, stroller and all of the small things like nappies, wipes, bottles etc. We're there quite often so it definitely gets used.
My ILs have a high chair and we just take things there when needed.
