I put a lot of thought into cleaning and safety at Meadowsweet during the Covid 19 pandemic, following the closure of all self-catering properties for some time. This document is intended to reassure you, our guests, that the property is being properly prepared for each party that arrives.


  • We are using virucidal cleaners for your safety.


  • Please leave a few windows open when you go at the end of your stay – not the large side-opening windows, but some small windows at the top of the frames, for example in the living room, shower rooms and conservatory.
  • If you can, please strip beds, and leave sheets in a black bag – the bags are in a drawer in the kitchen. Also please leave towels in a separate black bag.
  • For cleaning during your stay, I have provided spray for carpets and for furniture, in case you need these. They are unscented disinfectant/sanitiser products, which are high specification virucidal sprays. I have labelled the bottles appropriately for your use.
  • My contact numbers, and others such as plumber, doctor, hospital, are in a folder, along with information about kitchen appliances, heating etc.
  • You will have heard official recommendations to ‘wash your hands’ many times! I am providing liquid soap and hand sanitiser for your convenience at Meadowsweet.

Guidelines on re-opening self-catering accommodation have been issued by UKHospitality on behalf of the Scottish Government. They state;

“If a guest presents themselves with symptoms of Covid 19, or is asymptomatic but declares the need to self-isolate, they should be advised to…..return home to self-isolate according to current government guidance.”

I am happy to talk about refunds or rebooking if illness does prevent you staying in Meadowsweet.
