Cleaning and Covid -19
All properties are cleaned thoroughly between each let, and heightened cleaning with additional procedures are also carried out due to the Covid 19 situation. However, as only a limited period of time is available to clean properties, it is a condition of your let that you leave the property and its contents clean and tidy. During the Covid-19 pandemic we ask that before departure you bag up your rubbish and used linen and towels in bags that are provided. Instructions for this are in the guest folders located in each lodge.
