We still have systems in place to make sure all our Guests are as safe as can be whilst staying with us.  Some of the changes that we implemented due to Covid are staying.

  • Cake on arrival will still be offered, but this will be brought to your bedroom for you to enjoy.
  • Breakfasts will be pre-order the night before (we still have everything that we offered before on the menu, including all of our specials) and there will be two sittings to choose from.
  • We will no longer service bedrooms during your stay, but their will be an ample supply of drinks and biscuits available for you in the dining room, to help yourself to, along with clean cups.
We are Good to Go, after following Government and Industry Guidelines

We have completed our Risk Assessment and taken a Coronavirus Proactive Action Course and passed our COVID -19 Industry Standard.  Bought all new cleaning/sanitising solution to the recommended standard, but we’ve found one that is still Environmentally friendly, so still securing our Gold for Green Tourism. We’ve got our PPE and hand sanitising gels etc.  There will be quite a few changes once we can re-open,  but rest assured your safety and ours, is our priority and you will always receive the great service we have always given.
