Extra Safety Measures For Your Stay during the COVID19 Pandemic
We have completed risk assessments and contingency plans for all areas of our business. Information about the key changes we have implemented will be displayed in your accommodation. There will be a reduced number of campers on the campsite, changes to how the facilities are used & enhanced cleaning processes according to industry guidelines for COVID-secure accommodation. Troytown Farm Shop will be open for ice creams and farm produce, with safety measures for protection of staff and customers. We are accepting contactless payments.
The islands have several elderly or vulnerable residents, and so far there have been very few known cases of COVID19 in Scilly. Visitors travelling to the islands have the potential to introduce infection to Scilly, so please ensure you respect and protect the local community by strictly adhering to COVID rules, going above and beyond where you can, and continue to hand-wash, social-distance and wear masks where asked to do so.
Please ensure you have read the advice from IOS council and from your transport providers before you travel.
If you have been asked to isolate or if you have symptoms of COVID19, please stay at home and contact us to rearrange your trip.
Please use twice weekly home testing kits in the week(s) before your visit.
