We would like to keep all of our guests updated on what to do should you feel unwell as a result of suspected Coronavirus whilst staying in one of the cottages.
Please note that this post is relevant to advice being given on 09.03.20
The following symptoms may develop in the 14 days after exposure to someone who has COVID-19 infection –

Generally, these infections can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.
It is normal to be feeling concerned and anxious about the Coronavirus outbreak, especially if you or those you know are directly affected by it – it is an evolving and uncertain situation.
The best thing to do is keep yourself informed and up to date with the relevant information and to follow the official guidance. Here is a link to the current NHS Guidelines for Travellers https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/advice-for-travellers/
