UPDATE - 14/05/20 - Covid-19 - our advice to you is to NOT book holiday accommodation or camping at this current time as sites may not be able to honour your booking and may not be covered by their insurance to refund your booking, you may be left out of pocket. We understand that you may want to book a holiday, but booking anything in the current climate is so uncertain, that our advice is to not make bookings for the coming months.

Accomodation is still unable to open under the current guidelines. It may be possible to open some accomodation from July 4th, however this is subject to infection rates staying low and sites being able to meet the government guidelines. We have decided that as a site we will NOT be taking any further bookings until we are sure we can honour those bookings and can operate in a safe manner for us and you the customer. The health and safety of everyone is paramount to us as a business in these trying times.

If we are able to open from July, we will firstly be honouring existing bookings for July and August or those who have chosen a full value voucher. Anybody who has a booking who would like to have a full value voucher or to move the date until 2021, who has not yet being affected by the current UK lockdown can do so free of charge. This message will be updated when we feel we are able to accept bookings again and any special measures that are in place on site.

- - - April and May customers have all been contacted and issued with the relevant voucher or refund, please contact us if you are unsure - - - June customers will be contacted in the coming weeks. 

If you are a holiday lettings or Air BnB customer, you can cancel your booking at this time to receive a full refund of all funds, including your deposit.

You will be offered either a full value voucher, which can be used against any accommodation or in our cafe Flock to the Fold, valid for 18 months, with no charges or supplements to pay to use in the future (which will potentially be extended up to 2 years) or a refund if required, if your booking is affected.  In accepting a full value voucher you are helping us to safe guard the future of the business, but equally we do understand if you would like a refund, but please bear with us as there may be delays in our ability to offer a full refund. 

Thank you for your understanding at this very strange and difficult time. We really hope to welcome you back to Breaks Fold Farm at some point in the hopefully not to distant future.

Stay safe all our lovely customers.

Best wishes

Richard and Louise
