Covid 19

19th July 2021

What’s changing? Nothing basically! In order to reduce the spread of the virus and to protect the vulnerable, the nervous as well as those who haven’t yet had both vaccines, we will continue to apply our Covid safe procedures in line with our risk assessment. We will ask you to wear masks whilst walking in the corridors and stairs as ventilation is limited in these areas. You won’t need to wear one in your room or whilst seated at your table in the breakfast room. We will continue to maximise distance between tables and all service will continue to be from the kitchen. The self service buffet remains in quarantine! The usual cooked breakfast offerings will be served from the kitchen.

17th May 2021

And we’re open again! Bookings by telephone only for now. Please call 01603-625730 and leave a message if we’re unable to answer. We’ll call you back.

According to the government roadmap out of lockdown, we should be able to re-open on 17th May this year. This is not a confirmed date but we are hopeful that it will proceed as all other steps of the roadmap have gone ahead as scheduled. But it does depend on the effect on the numbers of coronavirus cases and admissions as the different sectors re-open. And therefore it depends on how careful we all are in adhering to the new rules at each stage. We’ve both had our first doses of vaccine for which we are very grateful, with second doses becoming due in May. As we have had very little work over the past year, we will be reopening gradually as we find our feet again to make sure that we can cope with the work and manage things in a way that is safe for us and our guests.

We regret that we are currently closed for the period of lockdown. Unfortunately, we don’t have a re-opening date but the indications are that it may yet be a few months away. Because of the current uncertainties about re-opening dates, we are not currently taking bookings. This does mean that if you are hoping to stay with us later in the year, we are likely to have availability once we are allowed to take bookings! Please feel free to get in touch as soon as lockdown is over!

Needless to say, we are happy to answer any questions you may have to the best of our ability. Over the past 9 months, we’ve been truly delighted and touched to hear from some of our regular guests who’ve got in touch just to see how we are. We will look forward to seeing you as soon as we can get over this hurdle.

In the meantime, take care and stay safe
