Home : Services and Facilities : Guest Checklist

We have changed our list of supplied items at the holiday cottage and the way that we now provide them in line with Covid-19 safety for our guests. We are currently unable to provide a welcome pack or the kitchen store cupboard basic items. We have also taken away or made inaccessible all board games, books and DVDs.  We will also be reducing our usual generous supply of crockery, glasses, utensils and cooking equipment in the kitchen.  We will provide a guest 'kit' with some essential items and we will be rotating the kits for bookings so you can be assured that the kit items you receive will have been more than 72 hours in storage.
