COVID-19 Policy

We are pleased to say we are up and running again, barring a downturn in the infection rates etc.

In the case of the Barges, which both sleep more, we will still have to bear the household mixing rules in mind too, until they relax.

We are happy for you to book a future break on the basis that it may be affected by the above. We have no choice or say in the matter of course.

We are fortunate that we are surrounded by open countryside, and social distancing from others is easy at Woodfarm.

Have a look at this video to find out more:

Additionally we have a very strict cleaning regime and now have virucidal products for all of our housekeeping, with surfaces sprayed down in between guests. Just to put your mind at rest, we not only change the bedding and towels, but we also change the mattress and pillow protectors each time too. Please feel free to read more about our ‘Coronavirus cleaning regime’ HERE.

If you already have a break booked, which falls into the lockdown period, we will postpone your break and credit the money you have paid to a future break. If the situation changes we can of course proceed.

There will be no restriction on when you have to rebook your break, or when you have to take it. You will not lose your money. You booked a break with us because you want to come and stay, and you will.

None of us has a blueprint for how to deal with this and I am trying to face it head on like everybody else. We are a small independent business, owned and run by me, with a tiny but awesome team, and we are just looking to get through it and to help our guests do the same.

As a fun side note, why not have a look at our celebration of coming out of lockdown, hopefully for the last time? Here’s me and my band ‘Elephant in the Room’ doing our take on the viral ‘Wellerman’ sea shanty, via the wonders of technology. I wrote it as a blatant Woodfarm plug ahead of coming out of what we hope is the final lockdown in April 2021, and they very kindly joined in. Hope you enjoy it, we had fun making it.

In the meantime, I hope you and your family and friends stay safe.
