Henry Adams Holiday Cottages Covid Update


We are delighted to confirm there is a roadmap for Holidays to begin again and Self-catering in one household is one of the first sectors to leave lockdown!


12th April 2021.

Subject to a government data assessment based on four tests –

  1. The vaccine deployment programme continues successfully.
  2. Evidence shows vaccines are sufficiently effective in reducing hospitalisations and deaths in those vaccinated.
  3. Infection rates do not risk a surge in hospitalisations which would put unsustainable pressure on the NHS.
  4. Assessment of the risks is not fundamentally changed by new variants of concern.

Travel will be permitted for one single household. One household may stay in self-catering accommodation subject to data as outlined above.


17th May 2021

Subject to data people will be able to mix indoors as a group of six or two households. You may stay in self-catering following these guidelines. Indoor hospitality with no requirement for a substantial meal to serve alongside alcohol will open but seated table service will remain. Indoor entertainment such as museums, cinemas and children’s play areas will open.


21st June 2021

Data allowing the government will aim to remove all legal limits on social contact and re-open any remaining closed settings, including night clubs and enable large events, including theatre performances.


Henry Adams Covid Guarantee – As before if you book with us and can’t stay due to Covid restrictions we will offer to either move your booking or give you a full refund (Less £45 admin charge).


Our Covid Procedures

We have undertaken risk-assessments on every property and introduced appropriate measures where required. New cleaning protocols have been introduced and cleaners will work through a new checklist for each and every clean using appropriate cleaning materials.

Guests will be contacted before a stay to ensure they are not experiencing any Covid symptoms and in the event they are appropriate instructions will be given to cancel the stay. NHS QR code track and trace posters will be made available in all of our self-catering property; check in using the NHS Covid 19 app is now optional. Guests will also be contacted towards the end of their stay to ensure they haven’t developed symptoms during their time in the property.

Our office has also undertaken a full Covid risk assessment to ensure we can open securely.
