Cottages COVID-19 Update

Our Top Priority is your Safety

Visit England Good to GoWe are delighted to once again be offering outstanding holidays on the Jurassic Coast!

In order to deliver the best possible holiday to our guests, we have undertaken Coronavirus-specific risk assessments and implemented measures to reduce the risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level.

*Please note this is subject to change and will be updated in response to the ever-changing government guidelines.*

Of paramount importance is the ongoing need for social distancing. We encourage all of our guests and staff to maintain 2 metres’ distance from others that are not part of your household. Signage around the Lulworth Estate is in place to remind you of this. You are also reminded to wash your hands regularly and to use hand sanitiser often. Hand sanitiser stations are available at the areas of highest risk.

Face coverings are mandatory in all shared facilities. This includes our Reception building, and the Recreation barn at the Durdle Door Holiday Cottages.

We are also restricting Events in line with the latest guidance.

Additional Cleaning

Across all areas we have implemented increased disinfection and cleaning regimes in line with current government guidance, and in shared locations cleaning schedules will be clearly displayed. In terms of our accommodation units, the checklist of items that the housekeepers disinfect with virucidal and bactericidal spray is extensive and includes walls, floors, surfaces and every piece of cutlery and crockery where applicable.

Signage is in place on all shared facilities advising users of any restrictions on use due to Coronavirus control measures, and where queuing is likely clear signage is in place. We will regularly review and update our assessments and control measures in response to park use and capacity as well as in response to any further published guidance or information.

Shared Facilities

Face coverings are mandatory in all shared facilities. This includes our Reception building, and the Recreation barn at the Durdle Door Holiday Cottages.

The Swimming Pool at Durdle Door Holiday Cottages is open with a limit on the number of people using it at any time, and the Swimming Pool at The Lindens and Woodside Lodge are both open.

The laundry room remains open and the freezers are separated according to your holiday cottage and a there is a limit on people using the room at any one time.

Playparks: The large children’s adventure playpark and the smaller playpark will be open with a limit on the number of people inside each playpark. There are also hand sanitiser units on the gates. Please ensure all children are properly supervised to ensure proper social distancing and hygiene measures are followed – supervising adults will count towards the total limit of people inside the playpark.

Man O’War Bar & Restaurant: The Man O’ War is open for a takeaway version of its menu, with limited indoor seating available to pre-book. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed inside but they are still more than welcome to sit outdoors with you.

We will continue to review the offerings from the Man O’ War in line with further reviews on government restrictions.

NISA convenience shop: The shop on site is open, however there may be queues as a result of measures to ensure that social distancing can take place. Please wear a face covering inside. Please also be aware that there may be a shortage on items in line with items that are in shortage of supply in the area. We strongly suggest that you bring essentials with you wherever possible, including any hand sanitisers for personal use, toilet roll and cleaning products. Please be aware that supermarket deliveries are very hard to come by at this time, so we would also recommend bringing food and beverages with you.

What’s Changed?

Please note there is no possibility of early check-in. We are also unable to hold any bags or luggage for you.

Please wear a face covering in all shared facilities and indoor areas.

In order to keep our team safe, we regret there will be no laundry service nor washing machine available.

We have removed, wherever possible, the need for face to face contact between staff and guests. Including the implementation of self-check in and introduction of card or contactless payment options only. If you do need to come to Reception, we have installed a hand sanitiser unit by the entrance door, and ask that you do sanitise your hands before entering. We have also introduced Perspex screens in front of our Customer Care team members terminals, both for your own safety, and for theirs. If you do need to visit Reception, please ensure that only one person does so.

Staffing has been adjusted to minimise risk, including changes to staffing levels and work processes.

We have now introduced self-check in on arrival to all of our types of holiday accommodation. Information about directions and arrivals will be sent to all guests 7 days prior to your stay.

Overall we hope the measures put in place will enhance your experience of the Lulworth Estate and we have no doubts that you’ll have a wonderfully relaxing time with us – your piece of paradise.
