If you are in the unfortunate position of being under government lockdown in your area due to a further outbreak of Covid-19 when you are booked to stay with us,  your booking and any monies paid can be transferred to a later date (up to 31st October 2020) at no extra cost to you.  Refunds will not be issued.
