CORONAVIRUS SPECIAL MEASURES – WHEN WE ARE ALLOWED TO REOPEN

We are keen to ensure that our guests have the peace of mind to enjoy their holiday at Woodcombe. We thought we should let you understand the actions we have taken to protect you while staying on site.

ARRIVAL

Earliest arrival time has moved to 4pm to allow for additional cleaning and sanitising.
We will inform you where to find your keys so you to enter on your own.
We will be available on site, on the phone or at the house where there will be a map of the site if you are uncertain as to where your accommodation is sited.

DEPARTURE

please ensure you vacate by 10 am as we have a lot of extra work to do. We would ask if possible that you strip your own beds and leave them separating bath mats and towels (if you order them) from bed linen as the laundry is now demanding we separate each item type to allow for operatives to maintain social distancing.

CLEANING & SANITISING

All accommodation will be given a thorough clean as normal and then all regular contact surfaces such as work tops, handles, grab rails, taps, pull switches, remote controls, keys and fobs will be sanitised with approved antiviral liquids or the whole interior sanitised with an advanced sanitising fogging system.

EQUIPMENT

All non-essential items will have been removed from the accommodation to reduce extra cleaning and items that it are difficult to sanitise and could spread the virus so do not expect the normal games, books, puzzles, ornaments etc. Please bring your own.

CATERING EQUIPMENT, CUTLERY etc

The equipment will be reduced to essential items for the numbers staying and basic cooking so the normal surfeit of knives and forks, plates and general cooking implements may be less than you are used to. The equipment will have been either run through the dishwasher if fitted or hand washed prior to your arrival. Please forgive us if we have to leave the equipment in the dishwasher if timing is tight.
Any shortages or special items you may want can be obtained from us at the house if you give us a call we will drop them off. Daytime calls only if possible, please!
