Creating a safe experience for every guest


Please note: Our facilities and services may have to alter from our regular and advertised offering (at very short notice) because of team members not being available due to notification to immediately self-isolate. We will always do everything we can to ensure you have an enjoyable and safe stay with us

    PLEASE NOTE / Both gyms and the swimming pool are available.

    We'll continue where we left off with the usual safety protocols in place. We've bulleted these below for you all to familiarise yourself. 

    It's important to us that we continue to be vigilant so please respect each other as we gradually get back into the swing of things.

    • Social distancing guidelines remain in play. We've created the space you need to work out while keeping a safe distance. The gyms have been rearranged and clearly marked out for you to use safely, so it is easy for everyone to follow.
    • We'll control the numbers in the gym at any given time so it never gets too busy.
    • Both gyms will be cleaned thoroughly every night by our team. If you can ensure each piece of equipment used during your work out is wiped down and sanitised after use we'd be incredibly grateful.
    • Gym users will need to bring along their own water bottles.
    • The wet changing rooms will be available to pool users but if possible, please arrive ready as this will help limit the number of guests within the changing rooms.
    • Please bring along your own towel when using the pool.
  • GOLF

    PLEASE NOTE / Both our golf courses are open daily for pay and play golf.

    • Bookings will need to be made over the phone. Payment will be taken on arrival and is card only.
    • All tee times must be pre-booked. No player will be allowed to arrive and tee off without pre-booking.
    • Please arrive 15 minutes before your tee time and dressed ready to play. Please change your shoes in the car park.
    • Tee times will be spaced 8 minutes apart.
    • As much as we’d love to see you, please remember to stay alert and follow government advice.
    • Please don’t touch the flags. Each hole has it's own clever retrieval mechanism.
    • All bunker rakes have been removed from both courses.
    • Keep the speed of play moving so that you are always equidistant between other people on the course.
    • We will increase our cleaning rotations especially on ‘high touch’ areas.
    • Please help us to keep the golf course litter free.
    • Our driving range is open. Range balls can be purchased from the Leisure Club Reception and Pro Shop.

    • If you booked your reservation via a third party (eg., expedia,, and others) please contact them directly for assistance.
