Berehayes Holiday Cottages on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset
Covid-19 – Safety 1st at Berehayes (Sept 22nd 2020)
From 22nd Sept 2020 – Current government restrictions mean that only 6 from multiple households can stay (including infants). This only effects one of our cottages, Hayloft which normally sleeps 7.
We are adhering to all Government Guidelines for extra cleaning and sanitising between guests and social distancing and have been approved by the AA Covid Confident and Good to Go Visit England schemes and have our own Covid-19 Risk Assessment.
Our self-catering accommodation tends to be safer than other accommodation as guests are isolated in their own space so the likelihood of cross-infection is minimal. Our new Self Check-in procedure and saying 1m+ apart should be easy as there will be no need to be in contact with others here at Berehayes. Government guidelines are that only two households (which can include a bubble) can holiday together.
Our private indoor pool is now open. To be Covid Safe, free, private 1-2 hour sessions are included each day (bookable on arrival) . We now use bromine to sanitize our pool water, which together with an ultra violet light unit, kills viruses. The games room, laundry and sauna are currently closed due to covid.
Special FREE cancellation conditions:- For new bookings made after 23rd June 2020, if at the time you are due to stay we are closed due to any new Government Restrictions or if there are Government Travel Restrictions in your area or on a member of your party which prevent you from coming, you can cancel your stay (proof will be required) and you will receive a full refund. Alternatively you can take a voucher for 110%.
In this ‘new world’ we are all in this together and so we are asking guests to comply with these measures to keep us and our local community safe from this virus and to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable holiday. If you feel you cant then please don’t book. We consider ourselves kind, considerate and respectful to others. If you are too, we will welcome you to our peaceful, relaxing, quiet sanctuary in an Area of Outstanding National Beauty.
Please see below for availability. If you do have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us by email rather than phone.
