In March 2023 the Fire regulations that cover self-catering/short term lets were updated. With that came a requirement for all that even let a single room, for a single night, regardless of platform advertised on, must have a recorded Fire Risk Assessment, that follows the Govt Guidance, and that this must be completed by the 1st October 2023.
Higher Wiscombe has always had a robust Fire Risk Assessment and have always made this available to guest via the website. We have thoroughly reviewed our Fire Risk Assessments in the light of the above, and engaged a specialist Fire Risk Expert, to advise us and to write our new Fire Risk Assessments, these are published in full below.
We will continue to review these as necessary and update when any changes to the property or regulations require them. We regard guest safety as paramount, and no expense has been spared to ensure that we are compliant.
