FAQs

Here’s a few of our frequently asked questions. Should you not see what you’re looking for, drop us an email, we’re more than happy to help!

What changes have you made to be ready to open?2020-06-29T16:44:42+00:00
What we are doing to ensure you have a great and most importantly a safe stay at Little North Field.
Firstly, we are ensuring that the safari tent you have booked will be cleaned and sanitised to the Covid Ready guidelines from PASC UK, the AA and Visit England. We have produced a Risk Assessment that covers all aspects of our business.
We would  ask that you minimise asking us to enter the tent during your stay. If there is a maintenance issue we will try and sort out firstly on the phone. My contact numbers are
07961054124
01765 620468
I am pretty much around in the garden or in the office as clearly signed. Please approach the house by the office entry only to maintain privacy for other family members.
On arrival , I will show you to your open tent, and provide a small introduction to the tent and how to open and close. All other information will be in a laminated and sanitised folder. Please do not arrive before 4pm as we need to complete the enhanced cleaning protocols.
We ask that you socially distance from other guests.
If you show any signs of having the virus then you must immediately grand get tested by contacting https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing-and-tracing/get-an-antigen-test-to-check-if-you-have-coronavirus/.
The result must be shown to us. IF positive you will need to leave if any member of your party can drive you. If that is not possible and you have to self-isolate here, then you will have to pay for all
bookings that have to be cancelled as a result.
We will need you to provide names, telephone numbers and email addresses of everyone in the party, so that we can pass this onto the NHS if required. This information will not be used for any other purpose. This information must be provided at the point of arrival or before.
Remember the best way to stay safe is to regularly wash hands thoroughly.
Thank you please do email me if you have any further concerns.
