Keeping Guests Safe – Corsewall Estate Holiday Cottages Cleaning Protocols

Following the Scottish government’s latest announcement on June 24, we are delighted to confirm our holiday cottages re-opened on July 10, 2020.

Corsewall Estate Holiday Cottages has acquired the ‘Good to Go’ Industry standard mark, which means we follow the government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, which were developed by the Association of Scottish Self Caters; we have a risk assessment in place and a robust process to maintain cleanliness.

Each changeover has a strict two phase clean – with a clean first followed by a disinfection phase.  We aim to ensure our cottages are as safe as they can be.

Our cleaning staff have been fully briefed on these new cleaning guidelines, which are designed to protect our guests and ensure that the cottages are cleaned and disinfected thoroughly after each guest departs – paying special attention to key areas including kitchen surfaces, bathrooms, door handles, taps and key boxes.

If you develop CoronaVirus symptoms while staying in one of the holiday cottages, following the UK Hospitality guidelines, guests are advised to check out and return home to self-isolate if it is safe to do so.

Due to the extra time which will be required for each clean, we are now asking guests to check out promptly by 9am and for guests to arrive no earlier than 5pm.  Please understand that for the moment we will not be able to offer any early check-ins or late checkouts.

We also ask that on departure you leave strip all the beds, bag the linen and the towels separately in the bags provided and open the windows.

We have removed some items from the cottages for the time being including the handbook and the local tourism guides.  The information in the handbook will now be emailed to you – so you have the opportunity to look at it and print it off in advance or save it to your device.  We also provide a list of local tourism attractions which are open with links on the website.
