Following requests from guests we have opened bookings for 2021 so you can use your vouchers to get your bank holiday and busy times in early. Please follow the instructions on the voucher email to make the bookings.
We will not open bookings for the remainder of this year until we are advised it is safe to travel.
We would like to thank you for all the kind comments and understanding we have received over the past few days and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Kieran, Maggie and Mike.
We would love to see you, but this is the UK Government advice which we must all follow:
‘Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays. People should remain in their primary residence. Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk.’
This means you will not be able to come to us for the foreseeable future. We have stopped taking any more bookings and will send vouchers to all our guests that have booked to stay between today and the end of May. The vouchers can be used for a stay when the travel advice changes and will be valid until December next year (2021). Hopefully we will all be able to get out and about before too long and I am sure we will all be ready for a short holiday.
Please take care and we will see you in the future.
