Corona and Us

The current Corona-pandemic was easy enough to handle up to mid-July, as we were simply not allowed to open. From then on, the government has decided that we may, subject to restrictions.

To see what we can and cannot do under those rules, we made a protocol that we need to follow. In addition to the conditions imposed on us, we added lots of things that we felt we needed to in order for us to feel comfortable working again.

This did not turn out well. There is a daunting list of extra cleaning, the maximum occupancy of the house is right down to well below 10% of normal times, we would not be able to provide breakfast, but worst of all: when we look at what a guest may expect from a stay with us, we cannot ensure anything remotely like the experience we want to provide.

With heavy heart, we have decided to remain closed for the time being under these circumstances. We will not consider taking bookings before September, but even then we will not guarantee to open. It very much depends on how the situation develops. Watch this space, which we will update as soon as we know more, or somewhere mid-August at the latest.

If you have a booking with us, we should have been in touch by now (unless it is via a booking agent). If we have not, we apologise, and hope you'll drop us a line.

Thank you for your interest.
