Cheshire West & Chester is following the same Covid-19 roadmap as the rest of England, which means we can accept bookings from single households from 12 April. Visitors are not allowed in either cottage, although the 'rule of six' applies from 29 March, which means guests are welcome to meet with people in Delamere Forest or the surrounding countryside.

From 17 May the 'rule of six' will be dropped outdoors, two households can meet indoors, and hotels can re-open. This means that we can return to business-as-usual however the same rules apply in terms of reporting any positive Covid-19 tests before/during your holiday. 

As below, we will provide bedding and sundries such as tea, coffee and toilet rolls; we do require guests to bring their own bath towels, hand towels, and tea towels. This is to reduce the opportunities for transmission although cottages are deep-cleaned before and after each visit to remain Covid-19 secure.

We also insist that all guests agree to the following conditions before making their booking:

  • No more than one household (before 17 May) or two households (between 17 May and 21 June) will be sharing the property. 
  • If any guest has Covid-19, has symptoms of Covid-19 or has been in contact with anyone with a confirmed case of Covid-19 or symptoms of Covid-19 in the 14 days before the first day of the booking, the reservation will be cancelled.
  • If any guest develops symptoms during their stay at Forest Holiday Cottages, all guests must return home immediately.

Contact details for all guests and visitors must be provided before the visit to support NHS Track and Trace, and where possible, all guests and visitors should stay close to their lodge.

For more information on any of the above, please contact Stacey on 

All customers are reminded that they should ensure they have appropriate travel insurance in place from the time of booking their holiday.
