Accredited ‘Covid Confident’ Stays…

Cocooned in our quiet corner of Kent there’s little sign of a coronavirus crisis around here, with country life ambling on in the tranquility and seclusion of ever-peaceful Harty.

However we are very far from being complacent. Accredited ‘Covid Confident’ by the AA Hotel & Hospitality service, we’re officially recognised for the meticulous planning the stringent measures that go into keeping our guests and staff safe as a first priority.

So don’t write 2020 off just yet. If this is the summer of the staycation our rural retreat might be just the place for some restorative R&R. If there’s anything lockdown has taught us all, it’s that quality time with those that matter most is precious, reconnecting with nature is good for the soul and the simple things in life are indeed the best things.

Our self-catering cottages are the perfect place to make these lockdown learnings a part of life going forward – an opportunity to reconnect with your ‘social bubble’ in country seclusion, surrounded by nothing but beautiful walks, low-key coastline and an abundance of wildlife.

Accredited ‘Covid Confident’ Stays…

Here’s how we’ll be working to make your stay as safe and enjoyable as possible: 

All cottages are, of course, separate properties with full self-catering facilities, making social distancing infinitely easier than in a hotel
Additional cleaning on top of our already meticulous standards, with stringent cleaning of touch points such as surfaces, door handles, cupboard handles and taps
Extra cleaning supplies and hand soap will be provided in every cottage
Socially distanced checking in and out with no-contact key collection 
Your key will be disinfected before your arrival and your accommodation not entered after its deep clean
The shared games room is likely to be closed if multiple cottages are occupied at one time. We are however working to put in place a rota system so you will have safe access to this space
Some objects in your cottage that can’t be easily cleaned between stays (i.e. board games) will be replaced in rotation so that there is 72 hours between their use
The outdoor tables normally placed in shared spaces to the front of the cottage complex will be moved so that each property has its own personal alfresco seating area
If you book to stay with us and are then unable to travel due to a government enforced restriction or a positive COVID test among the party, then your getaway will be fully transferable. Other normal booking conditions continue to apply.
