Corona Virus


Dear guests - we are open again

and are looking forward to welcoming

you soon. 


We have put in place all recommended safety and cleanliness measures as per government guidelines.  Furthermore, we are currently only welcoming up to 4 guests to ensure that social distancing can be easily obeyed. 

As the corona virus will be here to stay for the foreseeable future we are happy to refund any bookings for this season in case you should fall ill or can't travel. This allows you to plan a break away with no worries of being out of pocket.

Corona Virus - an excuse for bad service? We think not. With all the current restrictions, we work even harder to make your holiday as pleasurable as possible. Our exceptional fruit platters and cooked-to-order breakfasts are served in our beautiful dining room every morning at your specified time. No cardboard boxes with pre- selected breakfasts in sight!


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.
