Latest Update: 16th July 2021
After careful consideration we have decided to keep the majority of our Covid measures in place for the time being, despite restrictions being legally lifted on Monday 19th July. These continue to be in place for the safety of our employees and our customers. We will continue to review this on a regular basis, as we navigate ourselves through these ever changing situations.
For future booking enquiries, please note that all our availability is live and up to date on our websites and bookings for 2022 are now open. Please ensure you read our terms and conditions here, if you want to understand in more detail our covid policies.
The Yan Bistro bookings, for farm residents, can be made using the link in your booking confirmation emails. We open the bistro to non-resident bookings a calendar month at a time and this is usually done 2 weeks prior to the start of the month. Keep an eye on our social media to be notified when this happens. Please see our Bistro website for availability ( www.theyan.co.uk/dining ).
If you are missing our delicious food our online restaurant shop is still open delivering nationwide on a Friday. Orders can be made online now. https://shop.theyan.co.uk
All our existing Covid voucher codes have now been extended by a further 12 months from your original expiration date, to allow you more time to plan your future stay with us and give yourself something to look forward to.
Once you have decided on your dates to book, just pop the code you have on the voucher, in at "Step 1 - Confirm Changes" of the check-out process and the voucher value will be deducted from your deposit payment.
We’re Good To Go
We have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and social/physical distancing and have been awarded the Visit England Industry Standard “We’re Good To Go” Accreditation.
Health & Safety has always been and will continue to be our absolute priority. We have adjusted to new ways of doing things, in order that guests and visitors are assured of our full commitment. We will carry out our adjustments in a way that is true to who we are and ensure that these align with our Broadrayne Farm values.
We have put in place our own 5 POINT PLAN detailed below. This could be subject to change if the guidance alters.
THE 5 POINT PLAN
Guidance and best practice
We’re following all government guidelines and industry best practice, in partnership with key tourism bodies and specialists. We have completed all necessary assessments and certification to validate our policies.
Our team, supply chain and partners
We have ensured that everyone involved in our business is fully aware of and committed to our ethos and values. This includes:
Every team member has been trained in health and hygiene related procedures and their responsibility to guests and colleagues.
We have taken all reasonable steps to follow the government’s Covid-19 Secure Workplace Guidelines.
We have communicated with key suppliers and partners, to ensure that their policies and systems relating to health and hygiene meet our own high standards.
We’ll share as much information as possible, prior to arrival, in order to provide assurance and transparency.
Our much loved welcome books have been digitised for viewing on your handheld devices. This gives lots of details about the farm, the surrounding area and how we will be keeping you safe.
Our health and hygiene processes and procedures are available to view and can be forwarded via email if requested.
Pre-arrival email communications will provide additional information relating to The Yan bistro, plus the pre ordering of items from our online shop.
Our new risk-based approach to cleaning has been implemented and all our team members have been trained accordingly. Antibacterial cleaning spray and hand wash will be available for guest use, together with the usual cleaning products and equipment already provided. A new hand sanitiser is also being provided in the properties that is an addition to the wonderful Pure Lakes range.
Because the holiday properties are let on a self-catering basis, we believe that social distancing will not be a major issue. We offer contact free self-check in through the use of key code entry system. Private outdoor seating areas and parking spaces are allocated for each of our properties and these are available for your sole use. Any interaction between you, your guests and our team will always be carried out at the appropriate social distance advised by the government guidelines. Requests for additional logs etc. during your stay can be done online, with the items required being left on the doorstep for collection.
THE YAN – OUR ON SITE BISTRO
The Yan bistro is available for the use of cottage and pod guests. In the bistro all necessary measures to reduce contact, ensure hygiene standards and social distancing have also been taken. These include:
Dinner and breakfast are reservation only and bookings will be staggered to ensure social distancing.
Due to the bistro now having to run at 60% capacity a cancellation fee of £10 per head for dinner and £5 per head for breakfast will be applied, if you cancel your table or reduce numbers within 48 hours of your reservation time.
A new electronic ordering system (QR codes) is in place, allowing guests to view our menu, order & pay using their own phone or tablet.
Meals can be ordered to be eaten in your property, as a hot ‘in cottage dining’ at an allocated time. These need to be pre booked 24 hours before.
We will still be taking card payments where possible. Alternatively, purchases can be charged to your accommodation and paid on departure using the payment card used on booking.
As always, we hope all is well and thank you in advance for your support, and look forward to welcoming you to Broadrayne Farm in the very near future.
