COVID 19 information for guests, May 2021
In these Covid times, we have of course had to adapt our way of doing bed and breakfast here at Church House. We obviously want all our guests to be safe here, and not to catch any nasty virus from us or from other guests. To this end, we are restricting the number of guests staying here at any time in our two main rooms to one party only. That could be one family, or two couples who are travelling together, or one group of up to 4 friends. They share the large bathroom that adjoins the double room. Otherwise, when someone books either of these rooms, we immediately close out the other room – so the main bathroom automatically becomes exclusive to the occupants of the booked room. These rooms cost £90 for two people, or £60 for single occupancy. (Including a full cooked breakfast, of course.)
Single guests are still welcome here, of course: any single guest is accommodated in the small double room on the 2nd floor, which has its own bath/shower room next door – and a large-ish sitting room as well. This room also costs £90 per night for B+B, or £60 for single occupancy.
Breakfast is served in our dining room, at a single long table. Normally guests share this table, but for the time being, we are ensuring that if there are 2 separate parties staying here (e.g. a group and, separately, a single walker) breakfast times will be arranged to avoid any overlap in the dining room.
We do our utmost to ensure that everything is as clean and hygienic as possible, to reduce to a minimum the likelihood of anyone passing on the dreaded virus – or anything else – to anyone in this house; but at the end of the day this is our home, not a guest-house or a hotel, and we intend to keep it that way. So there are no Perspex screens in the kitchen or elsewhere, no yellow 1 or 2-metre markers on the floors, and your hosts do not walk round in masks and gloves. But we keep a safe distance from you, and obviously expect you to do the same. Hand sanitiser is widely available.
Notwithstanding all the above, rest assured that we are very happy to have resumed our bed and breakfast enterprise in 2021 and to welcome guests once again to Church House.
