Corona Virus Protection
The Coronavirus continues to impact on all areas of life, however, recent data and statements from the Prime Minister indicate that we have passed the peak of the pandemic. Whilst we must continue to follow the Government guidelines this positive news presents an opportunity for us to outline our plans for the reopening of our campsite and luxury glamping accommodation.
Our top priority is the safety of our staff and customers, and we are committed to doing our best to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. We have spoken with many of our lovely customers and we know how keen everyone is to get back to the great outdoors, so we are busy preparing to re-open as soon as we can. We have introduced a number of new safety measures so that guests can feel completely safe whilst staying at Howgill, giving you the confidence to book a stay with us.
- Each timber lodge is fully self-contained and a perfect place to self-isolate
- A site map will direct customers to their accommodation
- A phone number is provided for any queries
- Keys are disinfected after every stay
- Scatter cushions will be removed and the sofa will be sprayed with fabric cleaner
- Additional time has been allocated in the rota for thorough cleaning of the accommodation
- All staff members will wear full PPE including hazmat suit, gloves and face mask whilst cleaning the accommodation.
