We currently remain closed and therefore will not be reopening
on the 4th of July, or indeed the near future !

When we do reopen we will be fully in line with government guidelines in respect to dealing with Covid and limiting its transmission as much as is possible.

Hand sanitiser will be provided at the front door and must be used prior to entry, also temperatures be taken before entry using an infrared hand held thermometer, anybody presenting with a high temperature will be refused entry and their stay cancelled.
Social distancing of 2 metres will be enforced, markers will be visible, therefore the breakfast room will not be operating, breakfast will be provided on a tray left at the bedroom door.

Even though I have always provided a spotlessly clean environment at Newminster Cottage, extra disinfection will be carried out, particularly paying increased attention to contact areas such as door handles, keys and handrails etc. any soft furnishings that are not removed or can't be removed will be steam cleaned regularly also.

A minimum stay policy of 2 nights will remain in place for at least the rest of 2020, this is due to the extra cleaning and disinfecting implications, the possible buffering between room use and running a limit on the number of rooms available at any one time.
Any guest who starts to display symptoms during their stay will be required to leave and return home to isolate as per national guidelines.

All payments will be contactless, also a free cancellation policy will be in place, anybody who starts to display covid symptoms prior to arrival will not have to worry about any undue financial stresses.

While I will endeavour to make stays as welcoming and homely as I have over the last 14 1/2 years, your understanding and patience during this most bizarre of times will be appreciated, your safety and comfort are my utmost concern. Also as I am just a one man band, I need to protect myself from the potential of regular bouts of isolation which would mean closing the B&B during each isolation period.

So my decision is to hang on a bit longer until 'things calm down a little bit more'
Who knows 2021 might bring a cure, peace, love and understanding.
