The safety and wellbeing of Guests staying here at Brick Kiln Farm has always been of utmost importance. The Coronavirus crisis has brought this into sharp focus and following Government Guidelines, changes were implemented in order to adhere to these new measures, and to keep our guests and ourselves safe.
I do hope this information allows you to understand the measures that we have had to put in place, which will, in turn, enable you to enjoy your stay here.
Living especially through recent times, I understand the need for you to find peace and rejuvenation in the quiet countryside. Brick Kiln Farm continues to offer this to you. This site is for you if you are wanting to listen to birdsong, study the sky, absorb the countryside, read a book, enjoy a campfire and watch the stars at night.
There are many sites that allow group bookings, music, and noisy chatter until the early hours. Brick Kiln Farm is NOT one of those sites and if there is disruption, you will be invited to leave.
This is a No Music, Quiet Site for adults only.
As I live on site, I will be aware of any disruption and actively encourage other campers to contact me if there is an issue on the site.
Before You Travel to Brick Kiln
We need to make it very clear to guests coming to stay, that if you, or any member of your party are feeling unwell, has a temperature, loss of taste and smell or any other known Covid-19 symptom, YOU MUST NOT TRAVEL. We are especially conscientious of the High Risk group; ie, pregnant ladies, those with an underlying illness and the elderly.
If during your stay here, you or any member of your party, develop any of these symptoms, you must inform me and immediately vacate the campsite. Consideration will have to be given to close parts of the site for special cleaning, and if it was felt too unsafe for campers to remain on site, the site would be closed.
Refunds would be discussed.
The site is being run at reduced capacity. Social distancing will continue to be observed and professional cleaners will clean the facilities on a daily basis – along with regular cleans throughout the day by me.
Arrival time is now from 2pm to 7pm. Earlier arrivals can be discussed by prior arrangement.
A self-check in system is being operated, although I and/or a family member will generally be here to help you on your arrival.
Please pull into the field and park by the Check In Office where you will find all your details of your pitch and more information about your stay, including an invoice where you record items purchased throughout your stay here.
These items can be paid for at the end of your stay by card, BACS or cash. Change cannot be given and cash must be placed in the envelope provided and left in the lock up post box in the Check In Office.
You may then drive to your pitch. The pitch is big enough for your tent and car, (8x10m). If you wish to bring a gazebo you are welcome to do this, but please stay within your pitch space.
Fire pits are with each pitch – no extra charge. Wood and kindling is sold on site.
BBQS can be hired at £15/each with tools and coals.
Mobile fire pits are available for the Orchard Area.
If you have any queries at this stage, please contact me on 07724 210862 and I will be able to assist you. Please refrain from coming to the house.
SHOWERS & TOILETS
The shower and toilet block remains open.
There will be hand soap, hand sanitiser, wipes and disinfectant spray to use before and after use. The block will be cleaned regularly throughout the day and there will also be a daily professional clean.
Showers have to be booked ahead in 10 minute time slots and only those from the same booking will be allowed to enter together.
Hairdryers sadly, have been removed.
CHEMICAL DISPOSAL POINT
I understand that many campers will now be bringing their own portaloo and this will be actively encouraged. A chemical disposal point is available for you to empty and clean this.
Only 2 people from the same booking will be allowed in here at any one time.
If you have stayed before, you will notice that things have been greatly scaled back. The kettle, microwave and toaster have been removed, along with the crockery, cutlery and utensils.
Washing up liquid and handsoap will be available but all tea towels have been removed.
You are welcome to use the fridge and wipes and bags will be provided for continued safety.
The social area remains open and the doors will be left open. You can re-charge phones and laptops here. Social distancing must be observed and a maximum of 4 people can use this area at any one time.
All leaflets, books and games have also been removed.
We respectfully request that bathroom and kitchen surfaces are kept clean on a daily basis. Thank you.
