Our response to the Covid-19 pandemic
The events of the last few months have significantly changed the world that we live in.
We would like to assure our guests that we are doing everything possible to prevent the
spread of the virus.
Our small establishment is a self-contained space for each guest party, so there is
no risk of interaction with others while staying with us and no communal areas
We have undertaken a robust risk assessment and introduced an enhanced
cleaning & disinfection regime. In addition, we now leave at least 24 hours
between guest check-out and the next guest check-in, to ensure we have
sufficient time to fully clean & disinfect the property.
We have installed hand sanitising facilities in the lobby, so you can clean your
hands on initial entry and after returning to the B&B from any subsequent
We have introduced a minimum 3 day stay – to prevent the rapid turnover of
guests. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but it is not
logistically and economically viable for us to accommodate bookings at shorter
Access to the property is now via keys located in a locked key box by the front
door, so there is no need for face-to-face interaction at check-in (or check-out).
While this may be a less personal service, it does mean that you have flexibility to
turn up any time after 3pm on your date of arrival without prior arrangement.
We have removed all unnecessary items from the B&B to minimise the risk of
infection retention and transmission.
We no longer provide a cooked breakfast service, as this entails unnecessary
face-to-face interaction and means we cannot keep the B&B rooms separate
from the private rooms attached. However, a simple breakfast of cereals, toast
(and accompaniments) and tea/coffee, etc. will be available on a self-serve basis.
Please also note, there are a number of cafes and other establishments opening
up again in Amble, where you are able to order a cooked breakfast should you
wish. This has the added benefit of supporting local businesses, many of whom
have been badly affected by the pandemic.
We have updated our Terms & Conditions (including our Cancellation Policy)
and Access Statement to reflect these necessary changes. We advise you to
review these documents before booking, so you have all the information and can
make an informed decision.
We are committed to providing you with a safe, comfortable home-from-home for
your visit to Northumberland and we are sure that you will enjoy your holiday in this
most beautiful of counties.
We look forward to welcoming you (back)!
