Covid-19 information and policies
We are happy to be welcoming guests again from 4 July 2020, in line with government guidance for England. For the safety of all our guests and housekeeping staff during changeovers, we are putting enhanced cleaning and sanitising protocols in place. This will necessitate a latest check-out time of 9.00am and earliest check-in of 5.00pm, as a temporary measure.
To provide guests with reassurance, we are relaxing some of our usual booking conditions during the crisis:
1) If at any time you are unable to stay because of general UK or local government restrictions on holiday travel, then we will be happy to reschedule your booking for later in 2020 or 2021. We will waive the usual amendment fee for this. If you are unable to choose new dates immediately, we can treat your existing deposit as a credit note until you can confirm your arrangements.
2) If there is possibility of a lockdown preventing travel completely, we will not require payment of the balance until close to your arrival date, and will not invoice you for it if general holiday travel is prevented by government restrictions on self-catering accommodation providers in our part of Northumberland. However, we advise you to have suitable insurance in place to cover the cost of your holiday should you be unable to travel for personal reasons (including illness, quarantine or self-isolation) as in such cases the balance remains payable and we are unable to provide refunds.
3) Guests are responsible for ensuring that the composition of their party remains compliant with any government guidance and legislation regarding numbers of persons and households being present together indoors. In particular, as of 18 Sep 2020, local lockdown in Northumberland requires that guests staying in a property must all be from a single residential household or support bubble.
Our priority is to keep everyone safe in this evolving situation, so our policies are continually under review. If you have any questions, please contact us.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we all get through this difficult time together.
