August is nearly over and despite the slightly gloomy weather we have been flat out with guests since we (and the rest of the hospitality industry ) opened up again after four months of shutdown.For some of our guests it is the first time they have ventured out from the sanctuary of their own four walls since the middle of March.

It’s nearly the end of July and we have been open now for three weeks. The new ‘normal’ is gradually taking shape, albeit evolving on a weekly basis.
