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.
