If you have any symptoms, please do not make an appointment. We will welcome you when you are fit and healthy. There is no charge for cancelling your appointment.

The Cottage

We plan to make your stay as safe and as comfortable as possible so you can get back to making holiday memories here in Whitby.

We will not be allowing guests to check in early. Check out is at 10am and check in is 3pm. We want to allow the cleaning staff the time to carry out changeover thoroughly and effectively, following the guidelines to minimise the risk of Covid-19 contamination to staff and customers.

We aim to maintain our usual high standard of cleanliness but we will be paying particular attention and following guidelines provided to keep you and our staff safe;

We will follow these guidelines from Air BnB and will be providing appropriate PPE to our cleaning staff.

We like to use carefully sourced, eco friendly or homemade cleaning products but these are not fully suitable for the current requirements. We will be using diluted bleach where appropriate to provide a disinfected environment. Our laundry will be run through a disinfecting wash.

We will supply an improved range of cleaning products at the cottage to ensure hygiene.

We encourage you to wash your hands regularly and we will provide appropriate facilities – i.e. more soap, sanitiser and moisturiser for good personal care.

Please be mindful of you and your family and the wider community. We encourage you consider appropriate PPE for your stay which with keep you safe in and around Whitby.

Please ask yourself if this is an essential trip and if you show any symptoms we ask you to stay home and stay safe.
