Sheldon and Coronavirus : FAQs re Covid-19

Last updated 5th August 2022

A pandemic requires shared efforts to keep each other safe. We want to make sure clinically vulnerable guests can feel confident coming to Sheldon and not excluded. We adapt our protections according to current circumstances including infection levels and the season.

We are taking advantage of the summer months to relax some of our precautions for a while. We will re-instate when we consider necessary, potentially at short notice.  

We need to "Care for the Air we all Share"  

  • We keep windows and/or doors open to ensure really good air circulation
  • CO2 monitors are provided in main rooms and we keep levels below 600. 
  • UVC air sanitisers are also provided in higher risk rooms like the bar and dining rooms
  • If you join us in the chapel for community prayers, please wear a face mask
  • Members of the team continue to wear masks in close contact places such as serving food or drink or in reception
  • We support all guests who need or want to continue wearing masks, and ask you to pay additional attention to ventilation and distancing whenever masks are not worn

With free lateral flow testing having been discontinued we are no longer requiring routine testing, but do ask you to test 

  • if you have had close contact with anyone who has tested positive
  • always on the day of any massage appointment

It is helpful if you can bring your own test kits, but we can supply as needed. 

If in doubt, please discuss with us before traveling. Phone us on 01647-253914 if you become unwell during your stay.


We have continued with our more generous arrangements for cancellations in the light of the ongoing uncertainties we all have to manage. We want you to have the confidence to make a booking while having a reasonable framework for flexibility where needed.
