Covid-19 Update - July 2020

Can you holiday in North Yorkshire?

The Old Vicarage is currently open for guests and we are following the latest Government health and safety guidelines to give you complete peace of mind whilst holidaying with us. Please see more about our procedures below.

North Yorkshire is currently at the lowest local area risk level (medium alert) and is therefore a safe travel destination. This means that you can holiday at The Old Vicarage in a group of six or under depending on the risk status of the area in which you live. Please refer to the latest national guidelines for up-to-date information.

We understand that the evolving nature of the guidance surrounding Covid-19 could lead to a change in your plans, which is why we will always work with you to either refund or reschedule your holiday if this becomes necessary. This enables you to book ahead with complete confidence.


What measures are we taking to keep you safe?

It is vitally important that our guests feel 100% comfortable so please be reassured that we will be maintaining the highest levels of health and safety so that you can relax and enjoy your well-deserved break.

In recognition of this commitment, we have been awarded a ‘We’re Good to Go’ accreditation from VisitEngland – a UK-wide industry standard and consumer mark that has been launched to provide a ‘ring of confidence’ for visitors as the tourism sector reopens.

The ‘We’re Good to Go’ mark is exclusive to businesses that can demonstrate that they are adhering to the latest Government and public health guidance, have carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment and checked that they have all the required processes in place.

We have always followed a rigorous cleaning and hygiene routine at The Old Vicarage – with 5 star ratings from previous guest reviews as well as top marks in all of our independent VisitEngland assessments – and we will continue to go that extra mile. Our experienced cleaners have undergone a special Covid-19 training course. They will wear PPE when preparing the property for your arrival, and additional disinfectants and anti-viral sprays will be used as well as the regular cleaning products. You are more than welcome to view our completed cleaning and preparation checklists at the beginning of your stay. The leisure facilities will also be thoroughly cleaned between sessions.

Even though we love to welcome you personally – socially distanced of course! –a contactless arrival can also be arranged. If you prefer this option, then there are various sources of digital information to ensure your stay progresses smoothly.


Why choose us?

Right now, The Old Vicarage is the perfect place for a safe 'staycation'. Surrounded by miles and miles of scenic countryside, there is plenty of space to get outdoors and breathe. You can walk, bike or simply wander from the doorstep but if you want to go further afield then there are dozens of exciting outdoor attractions to explore.


If you would like to chat through any aspect of your holiday or booking then please call us on 01748 884348 or 07704 455854.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Old Vicarage soon.
