Dear Guest

We are proud to be one of the the best self catering choices for social distancing staycation by the sea, we look forward to safely welcoming you. Gold award winning pet friendly accommodation on the beautiful Jurassic Coast.

Here is the latest CoVid-19 guidance:

On 14 June the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced that due to not all of the four tests for proceeding to step 4 in the UK Government roadmap having been met, step 4 openings will be delayed until July 19th, with the exception of weddings and wakes of more than 30 guests which can still go ahead with social distancing.

The situation will be monitored daily and if after 2 weeks, the risk looks like it has diminished, the Prime Minister indicated that it would be possible to move to step 4 earlier. In the meantime, pilots for sporting events, such as the Euros, and some theatre performances will continue.

The guidance on what you can and cannot do in England has been updated with a summary of changes from 21 June, including a little more information on changes to weddings or civil partnership ceremonies, wedding receptions or civil partnership celebrations, and commemorative events following a funeral such as a wake, stone setting or ash scattering. The number of people who can attend these events in a COVID-Secure venue or other venue (such as a garden of a private home) will be determined by how many people a venue can safely accommodate with social distancing measures in place, including guests of all ages and anyone working at the event.

The official guidance on wedding and civil partnership ceremonies, receptions and celebrations has been updated (see summary below). The guidance on arranging or attending a funeral during the coronavirus pandemic is due to be updated by 17 June.
Updated guidance for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies, receptions and celebrations

From 21 June the rules for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies; and wedding receptions and civil partnership celebrations will change. There will no longer be a maximum number cap for attendees set out in law. Instead, the number of attendees at weddings, civil partnerships and receptions will be determined by how many people the venue or space can safely accommodate with social distancing measures in place. This will be based on the COVID-19 risk assessment of the venue or outdoor space, and the measures put in place to limit the spread of COVID-19.

In a COVID-secure venue, where the premises are operated or used by a business, a charitable, benevolent or philanthropic institution or a public body (such as a place of worship or a hospitality venue) venues will advise organisers the maximum number of people who will be able to attend.

Some restrictions on ceremonies and receptions remain in place to enable them to take place safely. These include Step 3 requirements on table service, face coverings, social distancing, and restrictions on dancing and singing.

Viewings can continue to take place with at any venue which is not required in law to remain closed, so long as appropriate COVID-19 mitigation measures are in place. This includes, for example, any restaurant or indoor visitor attraction.

There is also new information available for those organising an event in venues such as private gardens or on private land.

Other guidance updates
The domestic cruise ship travel guidance has been updated to say it is expected that England will move to Step 4 on 19 July, though the data will be reviewed after 2 weeks in case the risks have reduced. By step 4, the government hopes to remove all legal limits on social contact. This includes lifting capacity limits for domestic cruises.
