WELCOME TO MENAGWINS COURT
GORRAN – ST AUSTELL – CORNWALL
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE – WEDNESDAY 22nd JULY
Menagwins Court reopened on 5th July when COVID-19 restrictions were lifted. I would like to reassure everyone who has a holiday booked during the remainder of 2020 that if the Government were to impose a lockdown either here in Gorran or at your home postcode I will be happy to transfer your booking to alternative dates in 2021.
I have conducted a thorough COVID-19 Risk Assessment as the safety of guests is my priority. This will result in some elements of your holiday changing slightly, as detailed below. This may be subject to change closer to your holiday date and I will keep you fully informed.
Cleaning Procedures – I pride myself on the high cleaning standards in the cottages and I will be following the COVID-19 cleaning procedures as advised by the UK Government. The additional cleaning procedures will include the washing of ALL inventory items and the sanitising of all touched surfaces. The new cleaning procedures will also mean the removal of some items from the cottages such as bedspreads, blankets, board games, books, DVD’s and cushions.
Hand sanitiser will be available in all communal areas but I would appreciate you bringing your own small bottle of hand sanitiser to carry at all times.
Arrival and Departure Times – Due the additional cleaning procedures I have had to change arrival time to 4pm and departure time to 9am.
Courtyard Area – Current social distancing must be observed.
Recycling/Refuse Area – The recycling/refuse area will be open – hand sanitiser will be available and you will be requested to use this on entering and leaving. Only one person/family group will be permitted in the area at one time.
The Local Area – You will not find the usual information folder and attraction leaflets in your cottage. I will email you a copy of the information folder prior to your arrival (or provide a disposable paper copy for those guests without email). Visits to attractions that are open may have to be booked in advance – it is therefore essential that you contact any attractions you wish to visit prior to your arrival.
The Barley Sheaf like many local pubs & restaurants has reopened with social distancing in place. It is essential you contact any pubs/restaurants you wish to visit prior to your arrival as booking will be essential.
I am still able to arrange for Gorran Stores to provide a delivery service prior to your arrival – please email your grocery order.
If you feel unwell – If you begin to feel unwell, or show COVID symptoms before your holiday it is important that you do not travel. If you should become ill during your stay, you will be required to isolate, inform me immediately and travel home as per Government advice.
Menagwins Court is a modern development of two bedroomed cottages set within a courtyard layout. Designed in the local style with Cornish stone walls and natural slate roofs the development has been built to take advantage of the fantastic views, over rolling countryside to the sea.
Menagwins Court is located in the small village of Gorran, which offers a store/sub post office, public house and beautiful Norman church.
Gorran Haven is just one mile away and provides a larger selection of amenities, a harbour and beach. The safe and sandy beach of Caerhayes with its castle, still maintained as a private home, is just 4 miles away and the attractive harbour village of Mevagissey with numerous restaurants and pubs is just 6½ miles away. St Austell, the nearest large town is some 10 miles distant and provides a much larger range of shops, supermarkets, 10 pin bowling and leisure centre.
There are outstanding stretches of coastal paths and inland areas of beauty and heritage to explore.
Cornwall is a beautiful place to explore at any time of the year, especially in the Spring with country lanes abundant in colourful wild flowers and the National Trust and other large gardens are at their best with magnificent magnolias, rhododendrons and camellias. The Lost Gardens of Heligan is just 4 miles away and the world famous Eden Project with its gigantic biomes offering a fascinating insight into the world of plant life is 14 miles away.
