Appledore cottages update and safety procedures for bookings/changeovers, RE COVID 19; Risk of virus spreading to holiday home guests.

Our policy at this time is, regardless of government advise, Appledore Cottages is allowing 72 hours between departures and arrivals of holiday guests in all our properties.

This is to protect our guests and staff and give us enough time to ensure that the property is adequately cleaned to eliminate any virus present.

In order to achieve this between bookings, we propose (for our guests’ safety) the following, which will allow us 72 hours between departure and arrival to undertake the changeover between bookings, to ensure a thorough clean;

Please note the following bookings dates between the beginning of July and the end of October:

Booking available; Saturday the 4th July to Saturday the 11th July.

Booking available; Tuesday the 14th July to Tuesday the 21st July.

Booking available; Friday the 24th July to Friday the 31st July.

Booking date available : Monday 3rd August to Monday 10th August.

Booking date available; Thursday 13th August to Thursday 20th August.

Booking date available; Sunday 23rd August to Saturday the 30th August.

Booking date available; Saturday 3rd October to Saturday 10th October.

Booking date available; Wednesday 14th October to Wednesday 22nd October.

Booking date available; Saturday 24th October to Saturday 31st October.

Please note; l that due to the fact we are considering the health and well-being of all our guests and staff at this time, Appledore Cottages has taken the decision to allow at least 72 hours in each property between departure and arrival of guests. Of course this means that our bookings for the Summer season, July, August, September and October, will not run from Saturday to Saturday as usual, due to COVID-19.

Having made this decision for everybody’s safety and well-being, we have effectively lost several weeks bookings during this period. This has resulted in having to increase our weekly holiday rental price. I’m sure that all guests wishing to book with us will appreciate this extra cost per week in order that Appledore Cottages is ensuring our guests’ and staff safety at this time.
