Covid-19 restrictions have now been lifted throughout England, therefore it is no longer a legal requirement to wear face coverings.  However, choosing to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces can help to stop the spread of Covid-19.  Therefore, if you feel more comfortable wearing a face covering when staying at Wildercombe House, please feel free to continue to do so.

Comfort and cleanliness have always been a priority at Wildercombe House.  Therefore enhanced cleaning measures remain, and we ask that you please be respectful to those guests who may still wish to socially distance.

We aim to cover all options possible and wish to assure you and our staff that every effort will be made to keep all concerned as safe and healthy as we possibly can.  Should the conditions change, we will update this notice as and when necessary.  As always, we are here to discuss any concerns that you may have, so please do telephone or send an email.
