Update – November Lockdown 

During lockdown phone lines will be open Tuesday to Friday 10.00-1.00pm 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 have been overwhelmed with all your good wishes and very much look forward to extending a ‘Cottage Welcome’ as soon as we are allowed to reopen.

In the meantime best wishes and take care

Kath, Liam, Monika, Ben and all the Team
