During these unusual times we have had to make some adjustments to the facilities, and I sincerely hope that these changes do not diminish your enjoyment of your holiday at Abbey Farm Cottage.


We are signed up to Visit Englands Good to GO scheme and the Airbnb enhanced cleaning scheme.

We are currently leaving 24 hrs between bookings whenever possible.


All accommodation is steamed cleaned between guests.

10% deposit secures a booking dates are transferable should government restrictions prevent travel including the need to self isolate.

We have removed a lot of the soft furnishings from our accommodation as they are for decorative purposes only and are difficult to clean/sanitise.

In our new accommodation Willows and Hootsman we have used a covid safe fabric on upholstery wherever possible. 

The tea and coffee facilities are still provided, but to avoid waste, We will only be supplying small pots of coffee and tea and a pint of milk. We are however happy to replenish if more is required.

Check in is at 3pm  please advise your rough eta .

A fully sanitised key will be left in the door

If you wish to come earlier and leave your car, you are welcome to, but please give us advanced warning to expect you earlier.

We have brought check out forward by an hour to 10 o’clock

laundry bags are provided and we are asking guests strip the beds, one bag for the bed clothes, the other for all towels and bathmat. This is to reduce risk of cross contamination and allows us to wash the laundry without contact.

 I will only be putting one pillow per person in the hut as standard, please let us know if you want more prior to arrival.

We will be leaving antibacterial spays in the shepherds huts , the kitchenettes and shower rooms for you to please sanitise all touch points  (light switches, door handles etc) after using each of the facilities.

I have placed hand sanitisers inside the backdoor and in the entrance to the barn please use on entry.

To prevent waste of one of the most important household item during the Covid19 pandemic, We will supply only one toilet roll at a time, but there are plenty more on site, this is because unused rolls will have to be thrown away!! Whilst we are discussing toilet rolls, could we please ask you all to put the lid down when you flush, and wipe up any splashes!  Anti bacterial spray is provided.

I will be regularly checking provided supplies but if they run low and I haven’t noticed please do not hesitate to let me know.

If you develop covid19 symptoms before you travel we would ask that you let us know and we will rebook your  stay with us sometime within the next year.

Should any guest develop Covid19 symptoms during your stay we would ask that you let please inform us and we will request that you leave site immediately. We will then put the shepherds huts and rooms into 72-hour lockdown.

If you develop covid19 symptoms within 7 days of your stay, again we ask that you keep us informed so we can self-isolate and inform all others who have stayed with us since.

Apologies for all additions, adjustments and requests, we are doing all we can to help you enjoy your holiday and keep safe.
