Corona Virus

 Dear Guests,


We are so happy to announce that we will welcome holiday guests from 26th April 2021.



As part of our commitment to hosting

visitors in a safe environment, we have put in place all recommended cleanliness & safety measures as per government guidelines.  

As the corona virus will be here to stay for the foreseeable future we are happy to refund any bookings 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 stay 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.

Plan your  Stay for 2021


Many of our guests come here to celebrate a special occasion, such as a wedding, birthday or anniversary.  Thinking about staying - so why not get the date booked in right now?


Each of our three rooms is unique, so if you would like to stay in a specific room, it's even more important to get it booked early.

With our "free 24h cancellation policy" for 2021 you can be sure that you will be refunded in full should you not be able to travel.
