July opening on government guidelines re covid-19

We are happy to say we have been given the all clear to reopen from July 4th by the government. We would like to thanks past and current guests for their patience and look forward to safely welcoming you to Cornwall.

We are following recommended cleaning procedures using covid-19 approved disinfectant sprays to all surfaces and proper ventilation between stays. We will do our best to minimise contact and will operate a self-check in process on arrival. We request guests to bring own bedding covers to minimise risk. Whilst there is a bucket of spades,books,dvd’s and a small bbq, we cannot be held responsible for how these are used so use/clean at own risk We also request that guests leave any rubbish bagged in outside bins at end of stay and to observe correct handwashing technique (using soap for 20 seconds) when re-entering the house

Visit Cornwall has produced guidelines so the county can manage the increased numbers of visitors,safely and pre-booking tickets,restaurants etc will be necessary. Please check with individual attractions and venues for updated procedures and book in advance.

We would ask guests to observe 2m distancing on the beach and in public places and walks,although there are usually plenty of tucked away spots and space,especially when the tide is out!

Thankyou for your co-operation and we look forward to welcoming you to Cornwall

Please read our updated T and C’s for coronavirus guidelines in these unprecedented times. This includes notification of any covid symptoms before,during or after your stay. We appreciate your co-operation to keep all of us safe and healthy

Travel advice-March/Apr/May bookings

Government has now given clear advice re travel and the message to STAY at home. During the current crisis, local services will struggle to cope with residents,many elderly. We are a responsible local business and have been part of this community for over 20 years. We operate and run our business in as ethical way as possible and with this in mind, we have decided to temporarily close until May. This is a fast moving situation and we will revisit this decision based on Government advice. As a family business we are facing this crisis and taking each day as it comes,like so many others. Unfortunately we aren’t receiving any insurance or grants due to coronavirus so would urge as many of our visitors to re-book this year if possible when safe to travel. After an empty winter and spring season,we were relying on this season,but safety is first.We will be as flexible as possible and know how much you are looking forward to your holiday. Our Charlestown place stays open year round and is cosy and walking distance from the beautiful south coast and historical village. There are some great things to do in the area during autumn and winter,including all kinds of festivities at Eden and National trust gardens nearby .We would like to thank all our visitors and regulars for your loyalty and patience,we wouldn’t exist without you. We will continue to post photos of nature so that you can keep in touch and Cornwall will welcome you with open arms when this has resolved. Please stay safe we will keep you updated here x
