Booking a holiday is so exciting! Your experience shouldn’t be spoiled by worrying about what would happen if there’s another lockdown. When you book directly with us you can be assured that we will move or cancel your booking, if you need to.


We take our guest and staff safety extremely seriously. We have undertaken a thorough risk assessment at Cranmer Country Cottages following the cleaning protocols provided by The Professional Association of Self-Caterers (PASC UK) and linked to on the website. these can be seen here:

We will continue to monitor the cleaning guidelines and will make changes as required.

We are part of the visit England “We’re Good to go scheme” and also registered with AA Covid-19 confident assessment service.

We oversee and check the cleaning of our properties in-house, this means that this very important part of our Covid-19 protocols is not left to a third party!


“We’re Good To Go” is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. We’re Good To Go certificate

We carry out a full Covid-secure clean of your cottage prior to your arrival. This includes cleaning, sanitising and disinfecting using a virucidal disinfectant(Please contact us if you wish to know more about the products we use)


In these uncertain times, it is reassuring to know that if you are unable to travel to take your holiday because of a national lockdown, or because you are put into a Tier where you are unable to travel, we will guarantee that you will get a full refund. Please note that the refund guarantee applies only to the address of the “Lead-Booker” given on the booking at the time of booking being put in a high tier, and when the travel restriction coincides with the period of your holiday.

We will refund the cost of your holiday if:

  • There are UK Government restrictions on travel due to the Coronavirus outbreak which make going on your holiday impossible due to compulsory quarantine.
  • Or, if our cottages are legally closed to visitors due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The refund guarantee covers lockdowns and Tier restrictions, but does NOT cover you (or members of your party) for being unable to travel because you (or a member of your party) fall ill with Covid, or are required to quarantine or self-isolate. These events can be covered by you taking out travel insurance. There are a number of policies that include cover for illness with Covid and self-isolation (example links below) or you can look for suitable cover on comparison sites such as GoCompare.

We are not selling, promoting, endorsing or recommending any particular product, and do not benefit financially from, nor have any formal relationship with, any of these providers.

We strongly advise that you organise your own travel insurance prior to taking your holiday.
