Our Dedication to our Guests
We are ‘Good to Go’
Our loyal and dedicated house-keepers have always been renowned for their high standards of cleanliness and presentation, however, they will now be going ‘the extra mile’ and ensuring that your property will be cleaned and sanitised to the Covid Ready Guidelines from Visit Britain ‘Good to Go’ Accreditation. This includes making sure all the high touch points ie. light switches: and door handles will be sanitised thoroughly at our change overs with the recommended alcohol-based products or disinfectant. A signed full ‘check list’ of touch points will be provided to each Organiser on arrival.
Property Safety Procedures
To comply with new health & safety precautions and guidelines, we will temporarily remove some items from our properties, whilst also providing extra cleaning and sanitising products for your use during your stay. Please check this list below and we need to politely request that you will need to bring your own items for your pleasure whilst away.
- Tea, coffee, sugar, and milk along with basic condiments which are normally provided in our properties will no longer be available ~ sorry!
- Our beautifully ‘dressed beds’ with lovely throws and cushions will be removed.
- All magazines, books and maps will be removed.
