Isle of Wight holiday cottage welcome in these difficult times
We have been working hard to ensure our Isle of Wight holiday cottages are “COVID-19” secure and have taken extra steps as recommended by The Professional Association of Self-Caterers. In advance of your arrival we will have thoroughly cleaned and disinfected the cottage and where possible we will leave gaps between bookings. Our welcome hamper will contain sealed produce that can be left for you to open when you are ready (contents differ per cottage). We will send you all relevant information on the cottage and places to visit in advance by email and remove or rotate any paper based information, books, videos etc which could be handled by others. Hand sanitiser will be provided.
We will not greet you in person but we are here if you have any problems or need help during your stay. We live on the Island so do not hesitate to contact ourselves or our housekeepers – contact details in your welcome pack. We wear face masks and aim to keep a social distance of 2m if we need to visit you.
