On 22nd March the government issued further guidance around ‘essential travel’ making specific reference to businesses such as ours:
Following on from the government’s guidance on social distancing in relation to COVID-19, people should avoid travelling unless it is essential.
The key message being that people avoid travel whether for isolation purposes or holidays and remain in their primary residence.
As a result of this, and due to continuing extraordinary circumstances outside of our control, we took the incredibly difficult decision today not to take any further bookings for any of our cottages with an arrival date before Friday 3rd July 2020. Alongside this, we are asking all customers due to arrive before 3rd July 2020 to move their holiday to a later date within the next 12 months by contacting myself or Sarah.
This is tough for everyone. We are incredibly sorry that we are unable to honour guests’ bookings but we feel that to do so would be irresponsible. We are focusing all of our efforts now on the farm; trying to make sure we have everything we need to be able to maintain operations throughout the rest of this year and to keep on producing high quality food as part of our own effort to help feed the nation during these difficult and uncertain times.
Thank you for your support.
