At present cases of Coronavirus remain relatively low in the UK and Travel within the UK has not been restricted. We are closely monitoring the situation and have had no reported cases of Covid-19 at any of our properties. Pennine Country Cottages remains open for business. We cover a rural area and the majority of our holiday cottages are set up solely for the use of the guests on a self-catering basis, meaning you will be the only ones using the space.

We can assure you that the safety of our guests is of the highest priority and as such we can reassure you that we have put the following in place to keep our guests safe during their holiday.

As always our cottages are cleaned thoroughly between guests checking out and new guests checking in. Particular attention will be paid to;

  • Ensuring cleaning equipment is sanitised prior to commencing cleaning
  • Cleaning cloths, mop heads etc will be washed at 90 degree Celsius
  • Using disinfectant on hard surfaces and leaving them to air dry, with close attention paid to high touch and horizontal such as:
  • All horizontal services from kitchen work surfaces to loo seats Switches, handles, TV remotes, taps, waste/recycle bins
  • Washing bed sheets, towels and kitchen cloths at 60 degree Celsius or above
  • Cleaning staff will regularly wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds and use protective equipment such as gloves where possible
  • Cutlery, crockery and kitchen utensils are cleaned between bookings

While staying in the cottage we advise that you regularly clean down surfaces with disinfectant and maintain regular hand washing practices for more than 20 seconds at a time including washing hands when returning from outside. If you become ill while staying at one of our cottages, please contact our office and speak to a member of our team.

We want all our holiday makers to have a safe and enjoyable holiday. Should you be worried about a current booking taking place in the next 3 months, we can offer you alternative dates (subject to availability and extra charges may apply should the new booking total be more than the value of the original) and no administration fee will apply.

If you have a booking Pennine Country Cottages, we will contact you if the situation changes and your booking is affected.
