Lakeview Holiday Cottages continues to operate during lockdown providing accommodation for keyworkers exclusively. We are delighted to be able to offer our services to those who are still working throughout these challenging times. Our Somerset self-catering accommodation has proven beneficial to those staying with us and we are still experiencing high demand. So, we have put together this blog to update customers on our latest update of what has been happening at Lakeview.

Types of keyworkers staying with us:

Now with a third national lockdown, we have seen a vast increase in the need for keyworker accommodation. The government announced that businesses that can provide accommodation for keyworkers can stay open through the lockdown. These keyworkers include construction workers, railway workers, NHS staff, and many others working in front line services. You can check keyworker eligibility online at to see if it’s applicable for you or your staff.

The benefits of staying in self-catering accommodation


Self-catering keyworker accommodation is typically safer than staying in a hotel. This is because there is less chance of virus transmission when you are not coming into contact with others.

Outdoor space

Most hotel rooms do not come with fitted kitchens or outdoor spaces like self-catering accommodation does. Lakeview Holiday Cottages are located in the idyllic Somerset countryside and surrounded by a private twelve-acre lake, giving you the space to enjoy the view, go for walks and get fresh air.

Shared accommodation

Private accommodation also offers more flexibility to share your accommodation with co-workers which not only helps split the costs but also allows you to remain in your work bubble safely.
