Guests showing signs of Covid-19 whilst staying at Stoney End Cottage are required to go for a test. The result of this test must be shown to the owner. If positive, then the guest must immediately leave if this is reasonably possible. If for any reason that it is not, and self isolation is required to take place at Stoney End Cottage, then all fees for all bookings affected by this self-isolation will be borne by the guest.
