Well we didn’t see this coming, did we?! Who could have imagined this situation just a few months ago? This blog will be about Covid-19, as this is what everyone is concerned about at the moment.
Should we be allowed to open in 2020, we will. Clearly procedures will have to change and Government guidelines will be followed. Adrian and I have been discussing and talking with our team, coming up with ideas and plans – these are not set in stone and may change although the cleaning aspect will only change for the better.
Whether you have already booked or are looking to book and you have questions or concerns then please contact us. Even before this pandemic communication prior to holidays are important and you may even highlight something that we hadn’t thought about. Although we have had our glamping business for over 13 years, we are learning all the time and this virus has put us all in a unique position.
Cleaning – The tents will be thoroughly cleaned with disinfectant and diluted bleach products, pillow protectors will be changed on each changeover and our beautiful soft furnishings will be removed for short breaks and washed between families. The showers will be cleaned after each family and we are considering offering slots for families, I don’t think that this will be too difficult as guests get up at different times, often things like this can’t be planned and are far easier to implement when guests are here. The shop will also be cleaned regularly. Frozen ice packs will be cleaned before being put back into the freezer. As regular hand washing is essential,more soap will be placed in the tents.
Farm Tour – This will be reviewed on a week by week basis, we will probably do them more often and either individual families or small groups.
I hope that this addresses some of your concerns and as always, please get in touch with any questions.
Social Evenings - These will also be reviewed on a weekly basis, depending on how guests feel. Those who I have spoken too are keen that we should continue, although we will need nice evenings as using the Eating Shed won't be possible. I can cook individual lasagne meals for tents, pizzas will be fine, picnic tables can be spaced out and social distancing can be maintained around the campfire. Of course these are optional anyway but we will try to maintain our usual, exceptional (I have been told this) hospitality.
Whatever the 2020 season holds for us, looking after you is our priority.
Stay well, stay safe and look after yourself, your family, friends and community.
With much Love
Maddy & Adrian X
