IMPORTANT UPDATE: 23rd February 2021
Following the PM’s announcement yesterday, it has been confirmed that if step 1 of the road map goes to plan, self catering accommodation will be allowed to reopen on Monday 12th April as long as guests are travelling as one household unit. Then if all goes to plan, from 17th May, we will see a re-introduction of the rule of six indoors or two households. From 21st June, it is hoped that all legal limits on social contact will be removed and guests will be able to book in any group sizes.
We are currently seeking clarification as to exactly what this guidance means in practice and will be in touch once we are able to advise our guests accordingly.
Sadly, any holidays booked in up until 12th April will not be able to proceed. We are in the process of contacting all affected guests to discuss options. We are doing this in date order so please bear with us. You do not need to contact us – we will be in touch as soon as we can.
Really hoping this is the start of a return to wonderful holidays and celebrations!
Best wishes
Suzanne and Chris
