Following the Prime Minister’s announcement, we are so excited to confirm that we are fully reopening and can’t wait to welcome you back safely on 17th May!

It has been a long journey and we have missed you all so much.

As you start to think about your holiday this year, why not make it a great British summer to remember with us!

We are taking things back to a time when life was simpler, more joyful and definitely less stressful.

We’ve got all the elements you need for the most perfect holiday base, and what’s more our Battlesteads Observatory will be re opening too.

Dear valued guests

Following last night’s Government update, and in line with the new lockdown restrictions for England, we will once again be closing the doors here at Battlesteads from 10pm on Wednesday 4th November.

This full closure will include the hotel, restaurants and observatory and any events which were scheduled to take place during the lockdown period.

The safety of my team members and my guests has remained my number one priority throughout this whole pandemic and, whilst I am deeply saddened by last night’s news, we must all do our bit to help try and reduce the impact of this awful virus.

We are hoping to reopen from Wednesday 2nd December, in line with the Government advice and guidance.

If you have a reservation that will be affected by the new lockdown, our team will be in touch with you as soon as possible and we will continue to operate a small reservations team throughout the lockdown period.

Please note we are currently experiencing a very high number of calls and emails and priority will be placed on guests arriving from 4th November to 1st December.

I would like to thank you all for your continued support and understanding throughout this challenging time. Myself and the team look forward to welcoming you back when we are able to reopen.

Please stay safe and take care.

With kind regards

Katie Meyrick-Scott

Dear Guests and Customers

We hope that you have managed to stay safe and well during this extremely testing period.

There is no doubt that, over the last three months, the world has changed; as we all adapt to the new “norm”, we has been working behind the scenes in preparation for this new approach to life.

As you’re aware, we closed on Sunday 22nd March in line with the Government directive, to ensure the safety of our guests, our suppliers and our team.

During the lockdown period, we have been looking after the gardens, making improvements and planting our vegetables in readiness of inclusion on the menu.

We have also had some wonderful engagement with our #talesofbattlesteads social media campaign, which has allowed everyone to share memories of all of those special occasions at the hotel over the past months and years.

Following the latest government announcement on 23rd June 2020. We are delighted to confirm our re-opening on 4th July 2020.

Our team is hugely excited to welcome you from Saturday 4th July, we are pleased to announce that our reservations system is now open online and ready to take your bookings for overnight stays, short breaks and dinners.

On behalf of the team, I would like to thank you for all the messages of support and for your patience during this challenging time.  We are looking forward very much to welcoming you back in the very near future.

With my best personal wishes,

Katie Meyrick-Scott

With the rapid global development of COVID-19 we would like to let you know where we stand.

As of midnight on Friday 20th March we are closed to all non residents of the hotel. This measure will stay in place until we are advised otherwise by the UK Government.

We are still open for residents of the hotel, and this will remain so until the UK Government announces guidelines for hotels.

If you feel that you still wish to support us during these testing times, we have a full range of gift vouchers available via our website, which can be purchased and emailed to you, for a loved one or friend who can spend it with us after normality resumes.

Stay safe, stay healthy and we will update you with any changes as and when the information becomes available to us.
