One good thing about being closed, is that we get more time to catch up on those pesky jobs that just won't do themselves.
Over the weekend I spent way too many hours jet-washing every square inch of our drive. Feel free to comment on how amazing it looks when we're finally allowed to welcome guests again 😊

The Laurels B&B

It is with regret that, due to Government advice on COVID-19, we have decided to close The Laurels B&B initially until 7th May.

This date will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, depending on Government advice.

This decision hasn’t been easy for us to make. As a small family business, we are not covered by insurance for this eventuality so, like many other small businesses, will face a considerable financial impact as a result.

We very much appreciate your support during this challenging period and look forward to seeing you some time in the future.

We hope you and your family stay safe.
Phil and Helen

Sending lots of love to you all at the Laurels, Phil and Helen! A horrible decision to have to make, but I’m sure we will see you on the other side of this ordeal 😊😊
