Hungate Cottages - Update April 12th, 2021
We are looking forward to opening our doors and welcoming guests once again from April 12th, 2021. As always, we are available by phone or email should you wish to discuss an existing booking or need clarification on a future booking.
Book with Confidence
For any new 2021 booking, we wish to reassure our guests that should the government change their guidance regarding overnight stays at any time, we will continue to postpone or refund bookings as we have been doing during the recent weeks.
While we are making every effort to follow guidelines and operate our business safely, we do understand that everyone's individual situation is different. Should you have an existing booking that you wish to discuss, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Covid-19 – Additional Measures for the comfort and safety of Hungate guests
See below for details on small changes we have made to your cottage and the Hungate Cottages grounds for the safety and comfort of our guests and staff.
We ask that all guests ensure they do not display symptoms of Coronavirus (persistent dry cough, fever, loss of taste or smell) before they travel to Hungate. Should symptoms develop during your stay, we ask that you inform us immediately.
Before Your Arrival
We will send pre-arrival information by email pertaining to your visit. We ask that any extra items be requested in advance of your visit (baby cot, high chair, stair gate) so that everything can be in place before you arrive.
Social Distancing During Your Stay
While we will be here to give you a warm welcome on arrival, we will do so from a safe 2 metre distance. We will point you in the direction of your cottage where you will find a laminated information sheet giving more details about your cottage. We are always available on site or on the end of the phone for any queries.
Although our cottages are completely self-contained, we ask that our guests always maintain a 2 metre distance from others while in the grounds of the cottages.
We always strive to maintain extremely high standards of cleanliness at Hungate Cottages. During the Covid-19 outbreak we will be taking additional steps recommended by Public Health England for cleaning in non-healthcare settings.
All contact surfaces such as handles, switches, remote controls, keys and laminated information sheets will be disinfected with Dettol products.
Fabric surfaces such as sofas, curtains and rugs will be sprayed with Dettol disinfectant spray.
Antibacterial cleaning products and hand wash have been provided for use during your stay.
We are also taking extra steps to safeguard our staff and housekeepers, including employing extra staff members and providing protective equipment for all staff.
We ask that all guests adhere strictly to the government restrictions which are in place during your stay.
Other Temporary Changes
Local information regarding Restaurants and Visitor Attractions can now be found on our website under the News & Events page, Local Info.
During the summer months, logs and kindling bundles will be available for guests to collect from the log store.
Our bicycle storage is now limited. Some cottages have garages, and some have space in their downstairs cloakroom if bikes cannot stay on your car during your visit. Please contact us for more information. We cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to your bikes during your stay. For your peace of mind we have now installed CCTV in the car park.
