Holidaymakers will begin arriving in Suffolk again this week as letting agencies are able to start opening up self-catering cottages for single households.
Abi Charter, marketing manager at Best of Suffolk, said the vast majority of its 400-plus properties would be reopening after months of planning and preparation.
The only properties which will stay closed for now are larger cottages usually used by several families or groups of friends to get together for a break and apartments where different households have to share a communal entrance.
With so many bookings in recent weeks, one couple is so keen for a break they are hiring a property which usually sleeps 10 just for the two of them.
The company has been working closely with its housekeepers, who have full PPE, to use the downtime over the last few months to give the cottages a deep clean, and also working with local contractors to do maintenance to make sure everything is in a tip-top condition.
