Coronavirus Taking Proactive Action
We understand that the last few months has created a lot of uncertainty for travellers and we are implementing industry standards as they become available. Your safety, and that of our own staff, is at the heart of our thinking moving forward.
We hope to be able to welcome guests back to stay in our holiday cottages from 4th July and in the meantime we want to share with you some of the steps we are taking to ensure your health and safety whilst staying in one of our cottages.
Preparing your Holiday Cottage for Your Stay
Whilst we have always gone to great lengths to maintain and prepare our cottages for our guests’ arrival, we have recently updated our operating procedures and will be allocating extra cleaning time between guests to disinfect and sanitise all surfaces paying particular attention to frequently used items (light switches, door handles, remote controls, etc).
This will mean, however, that we will be unable to accept any requests for early check-in before 4pm and we will be requesting check out by 10am at the latest on the day of departure. This will ensure that we have the time we need to prepare the cottage for you. Of course, if you have any concerns, we recommend that you bring any additional cleaning items with you.
To help combat Covid-19 health officials recommend washing your hands frequently and for at least 20 seconds to help prevent the spread of the new coronavirus. In light of this we will continue to provide a bar of soap in each of our cottage bathrooms and an anti-bacterial handwash in the kitchens.
Unfortunately, we will be unable to provide our usual Welcome Hamper of goodies but both the Co-op and Nisa Local supermarkets in the village are open 7 days a week with usual opening hours.
To maintain social distancing all keys to the cottages are kept in lock boxes so that guests can self check-in (the code for the lock box will be communicated to you before check-in).
The grounds surrounding the cottages extend to several acres allowing our guests to spend time outside enjoying the garden and terraces whilst continuing to practise social distancing. Do take a look at this video of our location and surroundings so that you can appreciate the space you will have to enjoy during your stay.
Places to Visit and to Eat during Your Stay
Many attractions in the Cotswolds that have opened or will be opening this summer will be operating on a pre-booking system. Please plan ahead to avoid disappointment.
At the time of writing local restaurants and pubs are not yet open but many in Broadway, and the surrounding villages, are offering a takeaway service and some are offering a delivery service.
If you need further information about places to visit and to eat during your stay please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We Look Forward to Welcoming You to Stay
We are committed to ensuring that all our guests have a fantastic stay and are available if you need any additional information.
We look forward to welcoming you to stay!
