We now know that lockdown restrictions are going to be lawfully removed on the 19th of July 2021. The hospitality industry has been advised to continue to uses it’s judgement based on personal settings. We have decided that we are going to continue with the way we are currently operating for the remainder of the 2021 season.
This means the ‘Safer Breakfast’ service will continue, hence a full traditional English breakfast will not be served until the 2022 season. Hand sanitiser will remain available at all times and after the 19th July we will leave it to your disgression as to whether you choose to wear masks when in the house.
We have been awarded the ‘Visit England We’re Good To Go’ and ‘AA COVID Confident’ safety accreditations. We have taken many steps to ensure we can do so safely, and you can find out more below.
If you are looking for information about deposits and cancellations, then please read our Coronavirus Deposits and Cancellations post here. For stays until the end of 2021 we are only taking a £5 deposit to give you peace of mind should things change again.
We have produced a ‘Stay in Safety’ guide for all our guests, copies of this will be emailed to you (if possible) before your arrival and copies will also be available in your rooms for your reference. You can also read it by clicking the button below.
We will always adhere to the current government guidance which can change daily, if you have any doubts or questions then please contact us.
It is law to wear face masks whilst inside all businesses until the 19th July 2021, so we ask all our guests to wear masks whilst in our hallways and stairwells. You do not need to wear them whilst in your room or whilst seated in the breakfast room. We will leave it to each guests disgression as to whether they wish to wear a mask after the 19th July 2021.
Local Restrictions / Tiers – We don’t know what the coming months will bring, if either you or Us have to lockdown (whether locally or part of a national lockdown) then we will honour the deposit/cancellation terms of your booking. If we are subject to a local lockdown, we will contact you as soon as possible, giving you a full refund or option to move the booking.
Rule of 6 – We are legally obliged to prevent groups of more than 6 book or congregate within our premises, all these rules are fluid and could change again.
We ask and trust that our guests will be safe and responsible and ensure they do not put us or our guests at risk by following the current rules.
