Hoste Barn is a wonderful isolated location to just get away from it all. We are keen that you also get away from all those worries concerning Covid-19. We have therefore made sure that we have done all we can to keep you safe before and during your stay at Hoste Barn.
Firstly, we are ensuring that the property Hoste Barn that you have booked will be cleaned and sanitised to the Covid Ready Guidelines from PASC UK, the AA and Visit England. We have produced a Risk Assessment that covers all aspects of our business and this can be seen on demand, and is also available on our website at www.hostebarn.com/riskassessment
Our assessment has been reviewed and approved by both AA Quality in Tourism and Visit England Good to Go.
We have an experienced cleaning company that comes in to perform our change overs and they are working to the new PASC cleaning guidelines.
To keep you safe has meant rationalising what is in the barn and to make sure everything you might need and use has been appropriately clean to hopefully give you peace of mind.
The gym at the moment is not available for guest use until we are given government permission to reopen. The tennis court remains open for your exclusive use.
You will have your own garden area where outdoor seating will have been cleaned accordingly.
The tennis court is available so your sole use while you are stay and all contact points will have been cleaned. We ask you to bring your own tennis raquets and balls.
On arrival, the barn will be open and ready for you and the cleaned keys will be in the keysafe by the door. Please try not to arrive before 1600 hours so that we can complete the enhanced cleaning under the cleaning protocols above. It is also imperative you leave before 10.00 to allow the same safety approach to preparation for our next guests as we did for you.
What we are asking you to do to help us ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
Please respect the early leaving times 10am and the slightly later arrival times for yours and others safety.
Be rigorous in following social distancing when out in public.
If you show any signs of having the virus then you must immediately go and get tested by contacting
The result must be shown to us. If positive, you will need to leave if any member of your party can drive you. If that is not possible and you have to self-isolate here, then you will have to pay for all bookings that have to be cancelled as a result.
We will need you to provide, names, telephone numbers and email addresses of everyone in the party, so that we can pass this onto the NHS if it is required. This information will not be used for any other purpose. This must be provided at the point of arrival or before.
We have HMG guidelines that only two households (which can include a bubble) can holiday together in July. We cannot police this and ask therefore that you risk assess your own party and decide for yourself if your group is appropriate.
Remember the best way to stay safe is to regularly wash hands thoroughly. Thank you and look forward to welcoming you at Hoste Barn.
