We closed the hotel, bar and restaurant in line with the government requirements back in March, and overnight, our villages fell silent. To occupy ourselves, we voluntarily ran a ‘Fresh Box’ scheme to support our local, rural community and suppliers, cleaned the hotel from top to bottom, refurbished some more rooms, and waited for you all to come back!
For many, on either a personal or professional level (or both), 2020 has been a difficult year. Our rural village has been busy since lock-down was eased, providing much needed support to all of the independent businesses that have been able to re-open, and their hardworking staff. We have been fortunate enough to have had a very (very!) busy season since re-opening, and thankfully this support is looking to continue into a rather busy October as well. Thank you so much if you have supported our businesses, by staying with us, eating or drinking with us at The Ancient Mariner, liking something we’ve posted on Facebook or telling a friend about us
