Venue DescriptionHomelands Trust-Fife SCIO (SC047615) is an independent Scottish charity, set up in 1998 to carry out the wishes of Miss Isobel Paxton of Lundin Links.

There is also drop-in centre, known as the Paxton Centre in memory of Miss Paxton.

We have been working on our cleaning protocols and will be fully implementing the guidance issued by the Scottish Government which includes the adoption of the cleaning protocols created by our trade organisation the Association of Scottish Self Caterers. We have been working hard on this through training and purchasing the correct materials and are proud to say we have now been awarded the "Good to Go" chartermark by Visit Scotland. Some changes we are making at Homelands to reduce our coronavirus risk. The Scottish Government has now issued guidance to self catering operators regarding changes they need to make to their operations in order to re open safely. We have signed up to follow this guidance and will be adhering to it strictly, we have even enhanced the requirements in a few places. This guidance has changed a few things at Homelands so even if you have visited us before we advise you read this to familiarise yourself and your party with these changes. One of the key changes we have instigated is a major overhaul of our changeover procedures, this has involved introducing a deep clean and disinfecting regime between each guest. Not only will we be spending more time wiping down all hard surfaces and touch points with virucidal disinfectants we will also "fog" each lodge with a non bleach virucidal disinfectant between each guest. The enhanced changeover procedures will obviously take us longer and we have therefore amended our arrival and departure times to facilitate this. We are now asking that you arrive after 16.30 and depart by 10.00. In order to reduce contact we will sadly no longer be able to personally greet you or show you around the lodge. Check in will now be self check in and keys will be obtained from a key safe at your lodge. Please make sure you have the code to the key safe which will be sent to you with your pre arrival instructions. You will also find your key code in your online account (see below). In order to meet the enhanced disinfecting protocols for beds we will now only make up enough beds and provide enough towels for the number of people in your party as noted on our booking system. Our default position will be to make up the bed in the master bedroom in the configuration requested with the first single bed being the profiling bed. If this is not what you require or you have any queries please get in touch. Again to assist with our new changeover procedures we have removed a number of items from the Lodges including all books, leaflets, DVD's, games, decorative items including decorative soft furnishings and some less used kitchen utensils. We have installed hand sanitising stations in the porch of each of our lodges for use each time you enter the property. We will not be able to provide BBQ's for the foreseeable future. We have also removed our local information and house instruction manuals. These can now be found in your guest account online. We strongly advise that you register your guest account before you arrive in order to be able to access items such as instructions for the central heating, kitchen appliances and hoists as well as the WIFI code and a reminder of your key code. To login into or register your account please visit the guest login area and follow the instructions. You will need the email address you gave us when you booked and your booking reference number.
