Guernsey has been very successful in tackling the Covid-19 crisis and much of that success is attributed to self-isolation requirements for new arrivals, which are rigorously enforced. Breaches of the self-isolation regulations are being punished with imprisonment and substantial fines, sometimes several thousand pounds and generally a minimum of £3,000.
It is very important to strictly adhere to the self-isolation regulations, not just because of the fines, but also for the protection of the whole community. The States of Guernsey have published detailed guidance on the self isolation regulations on their website and this may be found at: https://covid19.gov.gg/support/protect. In summary though, self-isolation is separating yourself from physical contact with the rest of the community for a specified period of time (N.b. Currently 7, 14 or 21 days depending on travel and testing). You must remain in your accommodation the whole time and cannot leave it except for getting emergency medical care or to have a test swab taken. Ideally you therefore want to be self-isolating somewhere where you can have a comfortable and relaxing stay.
At Pres de la Hure we can offer comfortable, spacious and well-equipped accommodation for those self-isolating, including exclusive access to outdoor areas. The courtyard behind the cottage is a real suntrap and has a table and chairs and large parasol for alfresco dining (N.b. See pictures below). From the gravelled utility area there are steps up to the Lower Garden area, which is available for your exclusive use at all times. From the Lower Garden there are paths up through the woods to the Top Field. The Top Field has mown paths for walking or jogging and there is an outdoor seating area with sea views out over open fields (N.b. Access to the Top Field is by arrangement). Please note that the swimming pool and summer house are not available to guests who are self-isolating because these are shared facilities.
We provide contact details for a wide range of home delivery services. Also if you are stuck for anything and cannot arrange for anyone else to deliver, just ask us and we will endeavour to assist.
With comfortable accommodation, outside space and supportive hosts, self-isolation stays at Pres de la Hure should provide a pleasant and relaxing break with far more space and freedom than available in a hotel bedroom.
2nd April update: The rate for self-isolation stays is £125/night (£875/week). The next potential availability we have is from 6th September 2021.
