The coronavirus pandemic has meant that home delivery services are in huge demand - but you don't need to wait for a delivery slot from one of the local supermarkets. In this blog post, we share some of the great local suppliers who are offering delivery in the area. Do you know of any others? Let us know in the comments below!
It's finally approaching - 4th of July! We really can't wait to welcome guests back to Tamar Valley Cottages. Needless to say, you will notice a few changes. In this post, we offer 6 tips for making the most of your first holiday post-lockdown.
Following the government's guidance, we are delighted to confirm that we are planning to open from Saturday 4th July 2020
Needless to say, we are going to exhaustive measures to ensure that our hygiene procedures are thorough and consistent, and we are closely following all relevant directives from the government. There is nothing more important to us than your safety, and we will be providing further details to all guests who stay with us.
This means that we are accepting bookings for breaks taking place from 4th July 2020 onwards.
If anything should change, we are offering all guests a money-back guarantee, plus the option to move to other available dates where necessary.
We simply cannot wait to welcome our guests back to our corner of Cornwall. Restaurants, pubs and other attractions are beginning to open with precautions in place, and the wonderful landscapes of Cornwall are just as beautiful.
We hope to see you all again soon! Stay safe.
David, Rachel, Charlotte, Timmy, Jago, and Hunter.
Further to the recent government announcements, the Team at Tamar Valley Cottages just wanted to let you know our plan of action to combat the spread of Coronavirus.
The Government have passed legislation that requires all Holiday Accommodation to close for the time being. This is being enforced by Cornwall Council and is subject to inspection.
At Tamar Valley Cottages we are lucky enough to be in a fairly rural isolated location and as such, we hope that this will assist us in keeping free from Coronavirus.
We have always had a rigorous policy of maintaining our cottages spotlessly clean and fully sanitised before and after each booking. This continues to be our top priority.
The safety and health of our Guests is our number one priority. Therefore, when we reopen, in addition to our normal cleaning, we will be following the current NHS Guidelines and ensuring that we adhere to their advice on preventing the spread of any germs. I hope that this will give you full confidence that when you do come and stay with us, you will be doing so in a safe environment.
We are missing you all dreadfully and are longing for the time that you can come and stay with us again. The minute we are allowed to, all our cottages will be reopened in anticipation of your arrival.
In the meantime our thoughts are with you during this awful period. We hope that you remain safe and that we can welcome at Tamar Valley Cottages very soon.
With best wishes,
David Wright and the Team
