In light of the COVID 19 Pandemic we understand that with all the concern and uncertainty, the coronavirus is causing our customers we wanted to let you know how we are dealing with the current situation. These are unprecedented times for us all and we are trying extremely hard to ensure everyone is given up to date information. The situation we find ourselves in is extremely difficult, however we have endeavoured to find a way through this which is fair to all parties and we want to be as flexible and accommodating as possible, in order to retain the good will of all our customers.

I am due to come on holiday soon; what options do I have to change my booking?

We are delighted to now offer free cancellation to all our guests. 

Once a guest has made a confirmed booking, cancellation can be made for any reason, any time from 60 - 2 days before the date of the start of the holiday.  Guests will receive a full refund, less our £50 booking fee.

What measures are in place to reassure me that the cottages are cleaned effectively?

We have completed an industry recognised Covid-19 cleaning course and risk assesments for cleaning.  Cottages will be cleaned using a rigorous procedure and check list, finally disinfecting all cottages with a Log 5 disinfectant, which kills 99.999% of virus.  Pillow and mattress protectors will be cleaned between each stay and guest will be asked to remove and bag up all bedding and laundry before vacating the property.

All cottages will be supplied with cleaning materials, disinfectant and hand sanitiser.

Is your swimming pool open?

Yes, following the completion of our risk assesment, we are opening the pool to our holiday guests, with the following Covid-19 procedures in place.

Only members on one household to use the swimming pool at a time.  There will be a rota with an hour allocated per cottage.  Guests are asked to only use the pool in their allocated time.  There will not be any pool floats, toys, plastic furniture or bath robes left in the pool area - guests are welcome to bring their own.  Guests are asked to use the hand sanitiser before using the keypad and entering the pool and also toleave the pool cover off.

We are not able to let guests enter the animal enclosures this year.  However, animals can be petted and fed from outside the enclosure, adults must ensure children and supervised and social distancing is maintained.  There will be hand sanitiser available to use.
