Group Bookings & Covid-19 (Current restrictions @ 16 August 2020)

Under the current Government Guidelines group bookings cannot be accepted for more than 2 households sharing adjacent accommodation or multiple properties on site, if it is intended that the group will socialise together in the properties or outside in the gardens.

If you book with us and then find that a member of your group comes from an area subject to Local lockdown you may have to cancel part of your booking. A family/group/bubble living at the same address in a local lockdown area can take up the booking for a single household only. A family/group in a single household/bubble must not socialise or mix with any other guests or staff onsite.  Access to the shared pool and communal play area will be closed to visitors from a lockdown area under these circumstances.

We must receive full address details for all guests staying onsite at the time of booking. We will not be able to confirm a booking without this information.

We will not allow access to our properties if the above guidelines are not adhered to.

It is critical that we, as a responsible business follow these guidelines to keep everyone safe.

We are accepting forward bookings which will be covered by Master Cancel if it becomes necessary for the group stay to be cancelled for any reason.

  • The two cottages were booked as a surprise for my 60th birthday, and what a surprise. I could not have hoped for a more fantastic celebration. We all enjoyed a brisk walk in Wells-next-the Sea, lunch in a local pub followed by a swim in the great pool here. The cottages are so well equipped, everything has been well thought out. I would recommend the cottages to any group wanting something special! Very relaxing time had by all.

  • Another great Christmas in Tern, Swallow and Woodpecker Cottages. All very welcoming, warm and comfortable – everything we could need. Our Christmas dinner cooked in the Rayburn. All fantastic yet again!
