Covid Update: Please check our latest Covid-19 updates here.

Update: Following the PM’s announcement, the earliest we will be allowed to reopen is the week commencing 17th May. 

We have now contacted all our guests who were due to stay with us over this lockdown period.  We have been overwhelmed by our guests good wishes and would like to thank all those who have rescheduled their bookings already or indicated they would like to defer their visits to a later date.   We appreciate this may not be practical for all and remain committed to refunding deposits where necessary.

We have also been pleased to extend the expiry dates for gift vouchers due to expire in 2020 for further year.  Any vouchers purchased this year will also be honoured for a year from the date we reopen.

Phone lines are open during lockdown 10.00am – 2.00pm Monday to Friday and we will respond to emails as quickly as we can.   Our online booking page is open for new accommodation bookings and we hope to reactive our Restaurant booking page very soon.

A huge thank you to all our guests who have supported us throughout the pandemic.    We very much look forward to extending a ‘Cottage Welcome’ to our guests once again.

In the meantime we’d like to send good wishes to all our guests for better times ahead.

Kath, Liam, Monika, Ben & Team
