How we are ensuring guest and Staff safety? 

As always the safely of our guests is our main priority and we have increased our already stringent measures to protect the health of both guests and our family based team. Once you have made a booking you will receive details of how to log into our guest information portal which includes how to guides, virtual tours/check in information, pdf menus and walking routes and much much more.  This information has been compiled to remove the need for paper guest books and leaflets.   We are following the guidelines set out by Public Health England to ensure that we provide our guests with a safe place to stay.  Full detail of our protocols can be found here but are summarised below:

  • We have just two accommodation spaces and they are separated by over 200 meters and similar distances from our home and that of our neighbours.  This allows for effective social distancing.
  • We have enhanced our already strict cleaning and hygiene protocols.
  • Check in times have been amended slightly to allow for the additional cleaning measures to take place.  Check out is by 10.30 and check in is after 4pm.
  • Soft furnishings such as cushions have been removed from the huts
  • We are continuing to run our self check in and out procedure and although a member of the team will not be there to welcome you in person we are on hand should need us. 

We ask our guests to help us by following the current Government advice which can be found her:

  • Please wash your hand regularly with the antibacterial hand wash provided.  
  • Please use the antibacterial kitchen spray provided.
  • We politely ask that you keep a distance of at least 2m from other guests, staff and members of the public.
  • If you wish to support our local business at a time where we are all struggling then please let me know, many are now offering takeaway services and we continue to offer our locally sourced food hampers.
  • We ask that if you are displaying the symptoms of Covid-19 (A Cough and/or Fever) that you do not travel to Farmstead Glamping and that if you develop such symptoms during or after you stay with us you promptly let us know.
  • We are asking all guest to sign our Stay Safe Charter

We appreciate that the Coronavirus is an evolving situation and we will continue to adapt and keep you informed as and when it is necessary.  In the mean time I would like to wish you all a continued good health.

Warm wishes

Hannah Hannam
