Short Stay Homes –CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

23.02.21 Update

Please note that all our properties are now closed until the 12th April 2021 following government guidelines.

However there are exemptions to staying overnight during the lockdown so if you fall into any of these categories  then we would be able to accommodate you. Please see exemptions below. Our properties are also available for longer lets where it would be your main residence during this period.

Our office is also closed but if you would like to contact us please email enquiries@shortstayhomes.co.uk and we will endeavour to respond, however during these difficult times we may not be able to respond as quickly as usual. If you have booked a property during this period, in the first instance, we would suggest that you now go back to your travel insurers as you should be able to claim as the property is no longer available. We are also currently offering some alternative dates if you would like to consider a transfer, again contact us on enquiries@shortstayhomes.co.uk.
