We are delighted  to have reopened and  welcoming our guests back to ‘The Cottage’. There will be some changes to how we do things, to make ‘The Cottage’ a safer place for guests and staff. We have put in place procedures to ensure we comply with the ‘reopening guidance’ for Hospitality.

Initially, we are reducing the number of available rooms, with no more than sixteen guests. Room bookings will be for a minimum of two nights, to allow for extended cleaning and sanitising. Single night bookings will be released subject to availability. We are now booked for August with limited availability in September.  Available dates include:

September 1st & 2nd (two night stay Cottage room at £230.00 DBB)

September 22nd (one night stay Cottage room)

September 29th; 30th and October 1st (two or three night stay Cottage rooms)

There is greater availability for October onwards

Please note, we close on Sundays and Mondays.

Initially, due to physical distancing, we are only able to serve dinner for residents but can offer non-resident guests lunch on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays between 12.30 and 13.30.  Fully booked for August with more availability for September onward.

To give you peace of mind details of specific measures can be viewed here. We will continue with our relaxed cancellation policy with transferable or refundable deposits.

We have extended the expiry dates for gift vouchers to 18 months.
