We are really pleased to welcome guests during these unprecedented times but to keep everyone safe we have implemented some easy to follow rules so that we can ensure the Bolt Hole is COVID safe. You can read the documents below to see how we will keep the Bolt Hole clean to the highest standards possible during your stay and thank you for your support and co-operation.

Guest Greeting & Instructions

Hello Guests,

My name is Louise and I am really sorry not to be greeting you in person, however we want to keep everyone safe so have made arrangements for you to collect your key to the Bolt Hole from a key safe which has been sanitised just outside the front door of your accommodation.

We will email you the code for this key safe in good time before your estimated time of arrival so please let us know when we can expect you.

The Bolt Hole is ready for your arrival. It has been cleaned to the highest possible standards and we have taken measures to ensure your safety during your stay. You will find some extra disinfectant products provided to help you continue to ensure your safety during your stay.

– Before you access the key safe and enter your accommodation please sanitise your hands using the hand sanitiser just outside the front door.

– Please also remove your shoes and leave them in the porch before going upstairs in the Bolthole.

I really appreciate your understanding in these unprecedented times. If you need anything during your stay please contact me on 07549511845.

Many thanks,

Checking out from the Bolt Hole

Dear Guests,

Checking out from the Bolt Hole – IMPORTANT Coronavirus Safety Measures

Dear Guest,

I hope you have enjoyed your stay at the Bolt Hole and I look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Check out is at 11am on your day of departure to allow for a full deep clean of the property.

Please leave the Bolt Hole clean and tidy in preparation for the deep clean by completing the following tasks before you leave. In doing so you are helping to protect others who will need to enter the property after you.

– Please wash, clean and dry all kitchen items you have used and return them to the drawers.

– Please place all used towels, shower matts, tea towels and bedding (duvets covers, pillow- cases and sheets) and place them in the plastic laundry basket at the bottom of the stairs.

– Please use the antibacterial spray to wipe down all kitchen and bathroom surfaces.

– Empty the bin under the kitchen sink and place any rubbish in the correct bins (black for general waste, red for recycling) in our bin store which is situated to the right of the main gates as you leave.

– If you have found anything not working or have damaged anything during your stay, please let me know by contacting me before you leave. This gives me the opportunity to repair or replace anything before the next guests arrive.

I always try to make my guests stay as enjoyable as possible. Please spare a moment to leave a message in my guest book, as future guests love reading about your days out and restaurant recommendations.
