Our Coronavirus (Covid-19) Statement

The Hayloft at Sleapford Farm

(updated January 2023)

There are currently no Coronavirus (Covid-19) restrictions in the UK.  However, our main focus continues to be the safety of our guests and staff.  Therefore, while we continue to live with the risks of catching this virus, we will continue not taking back-to-back bookings (with a void week between bookings, ie: 7 day bookings will be alternate weeks).  This allows for a 72 hour minimum gap before we, or our staff, enter the property to clean and allow a further 72 hour gap before the next guests arrive, thus reducing the chance of infection (ie: creating a ‘firewall’ based on the original Government guidance for COVID-19 lifespan).


We have always strived to maintain extremely high standards of cleanliness at The Hayloft and as guests may not exhibit symptoms until after they return home, we will treat every clean as if the guests had potentially been infected.

Our cleaning procedure will continue to follow the original Covid-19 protocol.


We always like to meet our guests when they arrive and be on hand to help with any queries they may have during their stay.  The keys can be collected following our normal procedures.  Instructions and guidelines to the property will be in a folder (sanitised) inside the property. If we need to enter the property during a stay, if required, we will wear masks and gloves and ask that guests vacate the property during our visit.


Guests are asked to follow the additional Checkout guidelines (full details will be displayed inside the property), some of which are:

  • Strip their own beds and put used linen in bags provided
  • Empty all bins, double bag and place tied bags in external waste bins

Guests will be asked to return the keys in the normal way and follow the Checkout instructions already provided inside the property.

We hope all of our actions will help to reassure all guests that we are doing everything we can to keep us all safe, but please let us know if you have any particular concerns.

NB: Please follow the latest Government guidelines re Covid-19 at all times :
