The safety and well-being of our visitors and staff is our priority and we will take all necessary precautions to ensure their continued welfare.
The farm will reopen April 2021 and we ask all our customers to kindly adhere to the 10 steps as set out above. In addition to this please be assured that we have been busy behind the scenes to ensure that you can safely enjoy your visit.
We have implemented enhanced cleaning regimes throughout the Farm, this includes extra attention being paid in the toilets, and other touch points around the site. Because of the nature of our attraction we have always had stringent measures in place to disinfect railings and surfaces and these high standards will continue, with increased frequency.
We have risk assessed all areas of business specifically with the control of COVID-19 in mind, and our staff have been fully briefed on new procedures for their activity back of house and also new ways of doing things when facing customers.
We have sneeze screens installed at all till points, and have provided face coverings for our staff.
We are lucky to have so much outdoor space, and set in 45 acres we can ensure social distancing measures are adhered to. We will be operating a reduced capacity each day and you will find social distance markers and some one way routes marked out to aid this.
Our Indoor settings such as the Gift Shop will be provided with additional ventilation by having doors and windows open. Therefore during the colder weather we recommend to dress appropriately for your visit. In our Indoor settings, face masks must be worn. If you are exempt, we kindly ask that you inform a member of staff before entering the building.
Throughout Godstone Farm we have hand washing stations in convenient locations for visitors, and we politely ask that you use them regularly and particularly after touching animals. With regards to hand washing it is important to note that we do not encourage the use of hand sanitiser gels as a replacement for proper hand washing as only the thorough washing of hands will help to prevent ill health through contact with animals.
In the same way we ask you to refrain from eating and drinking in animal areas we now politely ask you not to eat or drink around the outdoor play equipment. We have designated an area of grass around our top shop where food and drink can be consumed. Hand washing is available at our top toilet block, hand sanitiser is available on entering the playground so we ask parents to supervise their children and regularly clean their hands whilst using the play equipment.
Finally, we request all our guests to follow the latest advice from the government during your visit, this includes the rule of six/maximum of two households.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
