Due to the ongoing pandemic we are very sad to inform you that we are currently closed due to the government lock down. We sincerely hope that you are all safe and well and cancelling or re-scheduling your bookings is no problem at all! We are happy to refund your deposit and hope to see you some time in the near future. 

We anticipate that we will be able to open our doors for you within the next 2 months (hopefully!) and are using this free time to upgrade our house and gardens to show off our beautiful views. :-)

If you need any more information or just want to discuss your current booking, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or email.

We hope that you are all staying healthy and safe and look forward to welcoming you soon.
