Update – Lockdown from Thursday 5th November

We will be contacting all our guests who were due to visit during November, in order of booking dates, and appreciate your patience while we do so.

Phone lines will be open Tuesday to Friday 10.00-4.00pm and we will respond to emails as quickly as we can.   We will continue with our relaxed cancellation policy with transferable or refundable deposits for Covid related cancellations.

We are also pleased to extend the expiry dates for gift vouchers due to expire this year for another year.

A big thank you to all our guests who have visited and supported us since we reopened in July.  We very much look forward to welcoming you back again as soon as it’s safe to do so.

In the meantime best wishes and take care

Kath, Liam, Monika, Ben and all the Team
