Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Sea – How Does Covid-19 Affect My Holiday?

UK Holidays during Covid-19 are about balancing the health and safety of everyone whilst having an enjoyable time away. At Glenview House we are committed to helping you do just that

Who could ever have predicted the situation we find ourselves in? Covid-19, pandemic, lockdown…words most of us had hardly used before!

We are supremely pleased to be able to open our doors as the country begins to lift some of the restrictions that are in place (see latest guidance). And how wonderful it is to be beside the sea!

For all our guests who have already booked their stay at Glenview House and for those who are considering it, I wanted to share with you some information about the things we are doing to keep you, and the local community in Filey, safe and healthy.

Cleanliness is more important Than Ever!

Firstly, and perhaps obviously, we continue to uphold our impeccable standard of cleaning services in between stays. I feel very lucky to have FBHL Cleaning managing our cleans. Their professionalism and attention to detail is superb and they have been incredibly efficient at working through their planning for this period of time. Due to Covid-19, there are a few extra things that will be happening to help ensure everyone’s safety:

  • All cleaning staff will have Personal Protective Equipment (goggles, gloves and masks). This is to make sure that you are kept safe and also that the cleaning companies employees are protected.
  • All surfaces will be cleaned with disinfectant spray which kills 99.9% of the bacteria including high risk areas such as door handles, light switches, remote controls and keylock and keys.
  • Bedding and towels are freshly laundered for each guest at a high temperature as always and diluted disinfectant will be used as air freshener around the holiday home including on all soft furnishings.
  • Guests will be left a labelled bag to place all bed linen in on departure, used or not. This is to give additional help and support to our cleaners.
  • Any belongings left in the holiday home after guests have left will be removed. We will unfortunately be unable to keep any lost property during this time so please check the house carefully before check out.
  • To ensure that there is sufficient time to take these extra cleaning steps and to ensure there is no overlap between our guests and staff, we have had to move our check in time to 6pm and check out to 9.30am. We will keep reviewing these timings throughout this period and endeavour to revert to normal as soon as it is practical to do so.

With these processes in place, we are happy to say that we have achieved the Visit England ‘We’re Good To Go’ recognition. This is given to businesses that have put the appropriate COVID risk assessment, procedures and cleaning processes in place to keep our guests and communities safe.

We want to make sure we do everything we can to keep you safe so that you can book with confidence!

Some Helpful Tips if you are coming to Filey

In addition to this, and to ensure that our country continues to beat this virus, there are some things to consider:

  • Tesco and Sainsburys both deliver to Glenview House. This would help ease the pressure on local supermarkets for produce and also protect you and the local community from coming into contact with any potential virus spread. It also saves space in the car when you travel to Filey - major bonus!! If you have booked your holiday already, it is worth booking your delivery slot well in advance to get the time and date you want.
  • We will provide you with hand wash and some cleaning products for the house but it might be worth adding hand sanitiser/face masks to your shop too.
  • If you are approaching Filey beach from any of the slipways, please remember to maintain social distance. It is possible there may be queues to get on to the beach at busy times.
  • If you have any symptoms of coronavirus immediately prior to your holiday, please stay at home so that you do not endanger other people.
  • If at any time you feel unwell, have a temperature, persistent cough or lose your sense of taste/smell whilst you are in Filey, please contact 5leys on 07702 262 509.

If you are thinking of booking you can check availabilty on our booking form and you can also get in touch with us if you have any further questions we can help you with.

We really want you to have a fantastic, happy and healthy holiday in Filey and with a bit of preparation and care we will all be able to enjoy our time Beside The Seaside!
