The health and safety of our guests is of paramount importance to us. As such we have instructed our housekeeper to undertake additional cleaning following the departure and prior to the arrival of all guests. Anti-bacterial products are being used throughout the house and are available for guests to use. Additional deep cleaning and disinfecting is being done of all vulnerable surfaces such as stair rails, work surfaces, handles, light switches, remote controls etc. The Auction House is located in a private courtyard with only two other properties in use full-time.
