Covid 19 Update

Thank you for visiting the May Cottage website and we have our “Good to Go” certificate from Visit England.

We have changed a few things to ensure we do our best to keep you safe.

  • Check-in is now from 4pm to allow extra time for deep cleaning. You can still park from 12 noon.
  • The Breakfast room has been re-organised to help social distancing
  • All breakfast items (including cereal, juice, fruit etc.) will need to be pre-ordered the night before, and served at your table.
  • We will continue to clean hard surfaces with antibacterial cleanser. In addition we have invested in a steam cleaner to treat upholstery and curtains
  • Servicing of your room will only happen for stays of more than 4 nights.
  • At the start of your holiday, we will place additional stock of tea, coffee etc in your room. If you need fresh towels, or anything else please just ask.
  • We have removed most information leaflets – you will find a small selection in your room. But please also visit for useful informatin and links.
  • We still have an iron and ironing board, and fans, if your room is too hot. If you need these items, or any extra tea, coffee etc please just ask.
  • The Spa facilities at The Lakes Hotel and Spa are open to May Cottage guests. Visits are for 90 minutes and need to be pre-booked.

What has not changed is the warm welcome, the comfortable beds and the delicious hot breakfast.

We look forward to seeing you soon

Best wishes

Joan & Simon
