Coronavirus update

Published 11th September 2020

Due to the recent government announcement in England, from 14th September, you should not go on holiday with more than six people you do not live with (or who are not in your support bubble).  This will be against the law, unless it meets one of a limited list of exemptions, for example a single household, or a single household with an additional person who is part of their support bubble. You should maintain social distancing with anyone you do not live with or is not part of your support bubble and continue to maintain excellent hygiene standards.  

If you have a booking with us of more than six people which are not from the same family or support bubble, with arrival dates up to 30th September,  please contact us to rearrange your booking. 

We will continue to keep you updated with any new developments, in the meantime, please stay safe and we look forward welcoming you all back to Greenwood Grange!

  • We have installed multiple sanitizer stations across the site. Communal areas will be subject to more frequent cleaning regimes.
  • We have provided antibacterial hand soap and wipes in each property. Should you require more please notify the housekeeping team.

Private hot tubs are open as usual.

  • In these ever changing times we ask that you please bear with us, it’s a new situation for our guests and the team and we are all learning. Some instructions and guidelines may change as time passes and we will update you on these as quickly as possible but this might mean that facilities open or close at short notice.
