Additional COVID-19 Cleaning Routines

We pride ourselves on offering spotless accommodation at all times, however with the presence of Covid-19, we have put in place additional cleaning on top of our normal thorough cleaning routine.
We are paying particular attention to disinfecting with Health Grade Anti-viral disinfectant as much as we can after our general clean, to help protect our guests as much as possible. However, we obviously cannot offer any certain guarantee there is no risk at all.

Our additional cleaning routine will now involve:

Disinfecting all high touch areas with Healthcare grade Anti-viral Disinfectant.

These include:

  • All door handles inside and out
  • All window latches and handles
  • All hard surfaces where possible without damaging wood
  • All light switches including bedside lamps
  • All handles/knobs on cupboards/ovens/white goods
  • Stair banisters
  • Backs of chairs (fabric ones have been sprayed with Anti-viral disinfectant)
  • Fridge/freezers inside
  • Dishwasher/washing machine buttons
  • Inside cutlery drawers
  • TV remotes
  • Heating thermostats
  • Bathrooms, especially taps/toilet flushes/toilet seats
  • Refuse/recycling bins/Food waste containers
  • Soft furnishings will be sprayed with Anti-viral disinfectant
  • Leather sofas will be wiped with Anti-viral disinfectant
  • Cleaning equipment
  • All hard floors will be cleaned and disinfected and mop head washed between guests

Removal of Items difficult to Disinfect/Sanitize

We have decided to return all items to the cottages this season apart from those listed below that are difficult to sanitize between changeovers.

We therefore ask that guests wash/sanitize their hands prior/after handling things like our Welcome Folder, Books, Games, DVD’s and Visitor Leaflets for your own safety and those using the items after you.

Throws for the sofas have been removed therefore please bring your own throws if you have dogs (should you forget, we do have some you can use)

Bed Linen
As COVID-19 is transmitted by virus droplets that are expelled when someone coughs, sneezes or speaks, we feel the pillows are at the highest risk of transmitting the virus. We have therefore decided we will only be supplying one pillow per guest. If you feel you would definitely require two pillows, please let us know before you arrive, or alternatively you are welcome to bring your own. This is to allow us to rotate pillows between sets of guests to minimize the risk.
You are welcome to bring your own linen/duvets/pillows if you prefer, but please let us know beforehand.

With these additional procedures in place, we hope we can mitigate the risk of transmitting COVID-19 between our guests and that we can put your minds at rest that we have done everything we can to achieve this. However, we obviously cannot guarantee we are COVID free.
