COVID-19 and your stay at The Lodge B&B
This page will be regularly updated as new advice emerges.

Now that we've reached "Freedom Day" (19th July 2021), we though that it was time for a quick update about our Covid policies here at The Lodge.
Even though things are ostensibly now back to normal, Covid cases continue to rise and we need to be on our guard. We will endeavour to do everything we can to ensure that guests have as 'normal' a stay as possible, but we will be continuing with the following routines until the situation has improved:
F A C E M A S K S
Face masks are no longer compulsory and wearing one when visiting us will be left to the discretion of the individual guest. Staff at The Lodge will continue to wear masks for the foreseeable future to provide extra protection for our guests.
C L E A N I N G
We endeavour to maintain a high standard of cleanliness and hygiene at The Lodge. Before you arrive your room will be cleaned in the following way:
Sheets will be washed according to manufacturers' guidelines,
Towels and face cloths will be washed at 60 degrees,
All hard surfaces, including tables, remotes, door handles, bathroom facilities, etc., will be cleaned with antibacterial cleaner,
The windows will be opened to allow fresh air to circulate,
All 'consumables' (e.g. tea, coffee, biscuits) will be replaced with fresh ones,
Room keys will be sanitised.
Any rubbish will be collected in bin bags and disposed of in an outside bin.
If you are staying for more than one night we will ask if you are happy for us to enter and refresh your room during your stay.
B R E A K F A S T
Breakfast will be served in the dining room as normal. We we will try to space the tables to give guests plenty of room, but if you are uncomfortable with eating in close proximity to other guests then let us know and we can make arrangements to have something delivered to your room. Staff will still continue to wear face masks while waiting on tables.
A F T E R Y O U R S T A Y
After you leave The Lodge we will keep your contact details for a minimum of 21 days so that the NHS Test and Trace scheme can contact you if necessary.
I F Y O U F A L L I L L D U R I N G Y O U R S T A Y
If you develop COVID-19 symptoms during your stay you MUST let us know as soon as possible and isolate yourself in your room until further notice. We will then phone a health-care professional who can advise on the best course of action to take.
G E N E R A L C O M M E N T S
These are difficult times for all of us, and things still aren't back to normal. Please respect the right of others to protect themselves in whatever way they see fit, even if you don't share their view about the level of risk. We hope to make everyone feel as comfortable and as safe as possible during their stay at The Lodge. Anti-social behaviour which puts others at risk will not be tolerated and guests who behave in this way will be asked to leave.
Thank you for your co-operation, and we wish you a safe and pleasant stay here at The Lodge.
