Wales entered alert level 4 on the 20th of December 2020 to control the spread of coronavirus.
All accommodation businesses are required to close for the duration of the alert. We have contacted the guests we had booked for the alert level 4 period and made arrangements to re-schedule their stays or refund.
We hope to re-open and welcome guests in January 2021. There may still be restrictions on travel to and from Wales when we re-open; we will discuss this with our booked guests as and when announcements are made.
You can read the First Minister’s announcement on the Welsh Government website.
We wish all of our guests a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
Grace & Adrian.
We have reviewed relevant guidance from the UK government, Visit Wales and Powys County Council, and sought advice from our booking agencies and our insurers to determine our response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Last night, the UK government published a document Guidance and advice to avoid non-essential travel in the UK for people planning to visit holiday premises during the pandemic, stating that “Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays.”
In line with policy announcements from other members of our industry we have stopped taking new bookings for the period to Thursday 4th June 2020 and we are asking that any guest with a booking in one of our cottages due to arrive between now and Thursday 30th April 2020 defers their booking and moves it to a date later this year or to some time in 2021.
These dates may, of necessity, be extended, in which case we will make a further announcement.
We will contact all booked guests individually to discuss this decision in the next few days.
For Wye View Limited,
Adrian & Grace Ince.
