Cottage Covid-19 Protocols

Westermill Farm Cottage Covid-19 Protocols 2022

Introduction

To ensure the safest visit for everyone as well as requiring adherence to all government mandated regulations and restrictions, Westermill Campsite would like to bring your attention to the following:

  • First, if you have a confirmed case or if you are exhibiting the most common symptoms of Covid-19 infection, please let us know as soon as possible and we will do our best to re-accommodate your booking.

  • Please DO NOT arrive at Westermill for your holiday with these symptoms, as we will NOT be able to honour your booking.

  • The cottages at Westermill are NOT appropriate for self-isolation and are NOT insured or council approved for longer term accommodation.

  • For your own safety and ours: if, during your stay, you begin to present symptoms of illness in line with Covid-19, you will be directed to the nearest emergency services and asked to immediately vacate the premises.

  • We strongly advise anyone booking to ensure you take out travel insurance to protect against any unexpected interruption to your stay.

  • If you have been before, please make your way up to the cottage. If you are a new guest, you will be shown to your cottage.

  • Social distancing should always be maintained.

  • Should any assistance be required during your stay, please phone…
