HURRRRAY, we have a provisional opeing date of the 15th July for self-catering holiday lets!!!
It has been a very odd year so far for everyone and although we are definetely not out the woods yet we can start to see some light at the end of the tunnel, which means HOLIDAYS for people!
Now that we have a provisional opening date, we have been busy at work getting the cottages ready for our guests, which means new cleaning procedures put in place, risk asssessments done, and training courses completed all in the run up to a safe holiday and to reduce the risk of Covid 19 to our staff, our guests and our family. Our risk assessments and proscedures/ checklists will be uploaded asap either to the website or the guest login area - another new aspect of our journey to help limit the risk.
All our cottages and apartments have been empty throughout lockdown, with only the owners being present in them to prevent the risk of Legionella (standing water), running all water through regularly.
Our cleaning regime is just one of the things as a small business we pride ourselves on, but to further mitigate risk in our cottages, we will be implementing new working procedures for cleaning of the properties on return to ensure the upmost hygiene level is put in place. This will involve a 2 stage system which includes a thorough clean of the property followed by a disinfectant of everything - sanitizing those particualr ‘touch points’ such as light switches, door knobs, cupboard handles and even well-used objects such as taps, kettles, toasters and kitchen utensils. We believe that this process means that our guests can be confident that our properties are not just visibly clean, but we’ve killed 99.999% of all invisible viruses and bacteria using the correct sanitisers by professional advice.
As a welcome gift (not the ideal gift in usual circumstances) we will supply guests with hand sanitiser and disinfectant wipes for your stay.
Further advice and information will be posted in the next couple of days so stay tuned.
