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) For existing bookings commencing before the end of September 2020, payment of the balance may be postponed until two weeks before the arrival date by which time the ongoing situation should be clearer. For holidays from October 2020 we will revert to the normal 8-week policy, unless another lockdown becomes likely in which case we will notify the relevant guests individually.
2) If at any time you are unable to stay because of general UK 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, or provide a refund.
3) If there is possibility of a lockdown, we will not require payment of the balance until close to your arrival date, and will not invoice you for it if travel is prevented by government restrictions on self-catering accommodation providers or 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 we are unable to provide refunds in such cases.
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.
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.
