Coronavirus update

WE ARE NOT TAKING BOOKINGS WHICH COMMENCE ON OR BEFORE 3rd DECEMBER 2020

CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR WEEKS ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE.

You may book to stay after that date, however, due to future guidance we receive from local or national government and health advisers, we may have to cancel your stay. In those cases you would receive a full refund or credit towards another booking with us.

Stay home, keep others safe!

If you do not believe in following all the Covid rules and restrictions, do not book this cottage.

We accept bookings only if all of the guests in the group come from one household not exceeding 4 including infants. Extra visitors or guests are not allowed under any circumstances. You must state at the time of booking how many guests there will be and their names. It will not be possible to add guests later. If you book for two guests then ONLY those two guests may enter the property.

We also ask that guests do not put themselves at risk and therefore those guests which arrive after their departure. Face masks to be worn over nose and mouth at all times outside of both your home and ours. Avoid crowded places and take home all your litter from the beach or other places of interest.

Please register for track and trace - we have our own QR code in the cottage.

We understand that booking a holiday may be a difficult decision for many due to the restrictions of cancellation policies. Please take out a suitable insurance policy before you book. We are offering all new direct bookings (effected by lockdown rules or contracting Covid-19) the flexibility to change their bookings at anytime up to one week before check-in without further charge, or a credit towards a future booking taken within 18 months of cancellation. Our agent's will have their own booking terms.

Our cottage will undergo full sanitization at the end of each stay, however we ask that guests now remove all bedding, towels, bath mats, oven gloves etc and place them in a tied sack at the end of their stay prior to departure. You no longer have to sort the recycling as our waste management company does that for you. So ALL waste now goes into the same dustbin sack, including unused hand soaps, and tied securely. This will help reduce the risk to our staff and next guests.

Thank you!
