GUIDE: Checking Out

Before you check out

We have extended check out to 12:00 noon to give you time to do this. There is a printed checklist in the Cottage to remind you what to do.

Bedding, towels, t-towels

Please strip the cotton bed-linen off the beds and put it into the clear laundry bags provided, along with your towels and tea towels. You will need at least one bag per room. You do not need to strip the mattress or pillow protectors too, unless anyone in your party has been ill. The laundry bags dissolve when the items are washed, so doing this keeps our cleaners and the staff at the laundry safe.

High Touch surfaces

Please use the anti-septic wipes to clean down the high touch surfaces

The crates

Please put the Information Tablet, your TV remote, and all the DVDs and games back in the crates and leave the crates in the family room.

Recycling and rubbish

Please sort your rubbish and remove it. Rubbish has a high infection risk so the council refuses to take it if it isn’t sorted correctly. We will deduct £25 from your deposit if we have to handle your rubbish and £50 if we have to sort your recycling. We really don’t want to do this!



General Rubbish

Kitchen waste – if applicable

Washing up

The virus is still viable if it’s left on unwashed glass for four days – please put all your used crockery, cutlery and cookware in the dishwasher and turn it on.

After you leave

We will check the cottage and bins after you leave on Friday so we can give you your recycling and laundry deposit back as quickly as possible. We will always discuss any problems with you before we deduct anything from your deposit.
