Now that Rhydd Barn is open for holiday bookings again we hope you will be reassured that we have spent the last few weeks making the barn as Covid-safe as possible. We have followed the relevant official guidelines — below is a summary of the changes we have made.

Rhydd Barn has introduced recommended protective measures against the spread of COVID-19. We are following the Professional Association of Self-Caterers (PASC) Self-catering COVID-19 Cleaning Guidelines — also recommended by VisitEngland (the former English Tourist Board).

Our cleaner and gardener are implementing the extra precautions needed to eradicate any possible traces of the SARS-CoV-2 virus thus minimising the risk of contracting COVID-19. We are sending extra instructions and terms and conditions to visitors before their stay.

We have a COVID-19 Risk Assessment in place which has been passed on to our staff. Our cleaner is using a comprehensive changeover cleaning checklist. Our rigorous cleaning and disinfecting procedures between each set of guests pays particular attention to sanitising high-touch points such as keys, door handles and light switches.

We have decluttered Rhydd Barn to ensure that there are a minimum of non-essential high contact items — for example we have removed many of the ornaments around the property and the attractive extra cushions on the bed.

We have installed a hand sanitising station in the barn by the main entrance door.

Rhydd Barn is applying for the ‘We’re Good To Go’ industry standard mark a self-assessment scheme that has been designed by the four UK tourist organisations. This will be a signal to you, our guests and potential guests, that we have worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, that we have a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing, and that we have read and implemented the Government’s and Public Health England’s (PHE) COVID-19 guidance.
