VIEWINGS: COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

SPECIAL VIEWING ARRANGEMENTS
For the safety of you and our team

We are not open to the public. Virtual tours and physical viewings for potential bookings and booked clients are strictly by appointment only with fixed time slots. We have structured them to minimise any contact with other persons during your time at Huntsham Court. Whilst these currently necessary protocols may seem frustrating, please do see past them, as we feel it is important to enable you to view the building now rather than wait until these safety measures are no longer necessary. 
 
With the safety of you and our team in mind, we have implemented some new protocols to comply with current government legislation. To ensure you get the best tour of the property with your safety in mind, we would be very grateful if you would abide by these rules.  They are designed to protect you whilst enabling you to see as much of the house as possible.

VIRTUAL VIEWING?

If you are shielding or living abroad we can arrange a virtual viewing of Huntsham Court. Please first look through the website as this shows the reception rooms in many set-ups as well as details of all our bedrooms and facilities. We have limited slots for one of our team to give you a personal video tour of the ground floor and to answer your questions. Please contact us if you feel that would best suit you.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND A PHYSICAL VIEWING?

As a result of current restrictions, we are conducting tours for the core lead guest only. The names of all persons attending the viewing must be agreed in advance and should be from the same household / bubble. Physical viewings are strictly by appointment only with fixed time slots and on the understanding you are showing no symptoms and haven’t just come out of self isolation.

NHS TEST & TRACE APP

Clients who make bookings for viewings or meetings will need to pre-download the NHS Test & Trace app in readiness, making their arrival as seamless as possible. Every person attending the viewing or meeting will need to individually use the new process of Test & Trace and scan the Huntsham Court QR code (displayed at the property) on arrival.

ON ARRIVAL

Firstly, welcome to Huntsham Court. Without shaking any hands we wish you a very warm welcome. On arrival, please pop your masks on, come to the front door and wait for your guide. We will confirm in advance of your arrival who is your point of contact for your visit.

RELAX

Please also remember that we are not normally a ‘do not touch house’. These protocols are in place only during these extraordinary times as a result of government restrictions. Should you book the house, we want you to enjoy your stay as if it is your home from home. So whilst during your viewing we ask you to touch as little as possible, but, when you come to stay you are welcome to put your feet up on the sofas and make your self at home.

HYGIENE

Your tour guide will provide you with gloves & hand sanitiser on arrival and will maintain an appropriate distance as they take you around the property. As much as possible please also avoid touching objects and surfaces.
 
We have strict hygiene and cleaning practices between viewings, especially on high risk surfaces such as bathrooms and door handles.
 
Should you need to use the bathrooms, please do not use the bedroom bathrooms. There is a bathroom under the main stairs which you can use before your tour starts (at stage 13 on the tour and at the end of the tour). Your guide will show you were it is.

ONE WAY ROUTE

You will accompanied by your guide at all times. However, the attached images show you the one way route to view the house room by room. It starts at at room 1 and ends at room 40. All the bedroom doors have the name of the room on them so it should be easy to locate yourself on the floor plans. If you have any questions please ask your tour guide.
