Covid-19 and 2021 bookings

In 2020, we introduced a protect-from-Covid cleaning regime that we expect to continue through 2021: as well as a full cottage clean we have now incorporated sanitising all the main touch points both inside and out (door handles, light switches, work surfaces, taps and entrance door key safes).

New hand sanitiser and food-safe kitchen cleaner with sanitiser are also left in each cottage for guests to use.

We are taking bookings for holidays in 2021 on the understanding that if Covid-19 restrictions persist or are re-introduced within Scotland, or any other country in the UK that is a transit country for you, then we will allow you to re-schedule your stay with us in 2021 – 2022 without penalty – or get a full refund. Deposits are 20% of the rental price and the remainder is now payable just 4 weeks before your stay.

Please read our Covid-19 Revisions to our Terms and Conditions in full and carefully. We have had to ask guests to carry out a few simple tasks themselves to minimise risks to health.

Please note that we do not have a specific changeover day. Stays are for 4 or more nights, as each cottage is thoroughly cleaned and sanitised between guests. Feel free to come for as many nights as suit you; however, we would appreciate it if guests could avoid departing on a Friday or Saturday and do not arrive on a Sunday in order to avoid long empty spells between guests.

Do not hesitate to ask us any questions; just use our enquiry form or email us at theoldcrofthouse.balmanqueen@gmail.com

In the meantime, stay safe and well wherever you are.
