What you need to Consider before Staying at a BnB During a Pandemic


COVID-19 has changed many aspects of our day-to-day lives but how about the breaks from routine? Weekends away and holidays are especially precious this year; a time to relax and refresh. Bed & Breakfast hotels care deeply about their guests’ safety and enjoyment and any accommodation currently receiving guests in the UK must have taken rigorous measures to ensure their safety. So how can guests make the most of them whilst keeping themselves and others safe?

How to relax and feel that your accommodation is protecting you.

Before deciding where to stay, visit the website of your chosen B&B or call them to make sure that every room has it’s own private toilet and shower facilities -we have confirmed this on our home page.

Check that any dining facilities can maintain social distancing of 2m between groups. If that’s not possible then the B&B may be offering room service or have reluctantly decided to suspend meals for the time being. For example, we have suspended our breakfast service. Use this opportunity to make the most of the staff’s extensive local knowledge to try a new restaurant in the area and enjoy some locally sourced produce.

B&B owners want guests to feel relaxed and safe, so they will be happy to answer any questions guests may have regarding the enhanced cleaning routines and training undertaken with guidance from the UK Government and UKHospitality. At Hedgefield House we already maintained extremely high standards of hygiene and we are confident that we have met all the changes required.

What can I do as a guest?

Remember to make every reasonable effort to social distance, or where it’s not possible such as in corridors, wear a suitable face-covering unless exempt. Please remember to wash your hands well and frequently but most importantly, relax and enjoy your break. Hedgefield House is now open again and we are looking forward to making your break in the North East a very safe and pleasant one.
