Covid-19 Update

'Keeping You Safe'

COVID-19 has necessitated some enhancements to the meticulous cleaning that we already carry out here at Nyhavn Lakeside Cottage before and after each of our guest's stay.

Please be assured that we are paying particular attention to high touch areas. We conduct a thorough cleaning of the house after each stay however there is additional sanitisation throughout and effective disinfection of all high-contact areas. These include (but not limited to) kitchen work surfaces, door handles, hand rails, plug sockets, light fittings and TV remote controls. Kitchen crockery, pots and pans and utensils are all put through the dishwasher to ensure they are cleaned effectively.Between guest visits, all appropriate fabrics and soft materials will be either washed at the government recommended temperature, deep cleaned or fogged with professional disinfectant spray (i.e. carpets, furniture and rugs). Some items have been taken out of the cottage to reduce the risk of any cross-infection.

Appropriate cleaning products will be available for use during your stay (hand sanitisers, anti-bacterial wipes etc). Our cleaning staff wear gloves when cleaning and completely 'air' the house between holiday lets.

We look forward to welcoming you to Nyhavn Lakeside Cottage for an enjoyable, comfortable and safe stay.
