Following the recent announcement from HM Government, the maximum number of people now allowed to be together is six. This means we are unable to accept any groups of more than six people in our cottages. Please remember this includes children of any age so if two, or more, families are visiting, and the total number of people is more than six they are not allowed to be together.
Groups of more than six will not be allowed in the cottages. This is the law.
We are aware that this may cause you to reconsider your stay with us, so we are prepared to issue vouchers or refunds if you need to cancel your visit. Please email us with details of your stay if you wish to do so. However, any cancellations of existing bookings will need to be made by Thursday 17/9/2020 to allow us to try and re-let the cottage to people who are able to stay. Hopefully, this will enable us to salvage some business from a disastrous year.
Please do not try to get around the rules by booking separately as we do not want to have to turn you away on arrival and ruin your break. There will be no refunds if you do not cancel in advance.
Hopefully, we will be able to operate in our usual way next year and we will welcome you all back.
