Room Availability

We have been overwhelmed by the response since we opened up bookings, so we are sorry if you have been struggling to make a reservation for a room so far. Winter is lovely in the vineyard and we have good availability from mid November onwards, so perhaps planning a Winter escape might be the perfect thing to look forward to. There will be a table for you in our brasserie, so no need to book this separately as our online table booking system is currently suspended. Thank you for your unfailing support during this tricky time - your kind messages have kept us all going, and to those that have made a booking over the next couple of months, we very much appreciate that you have made making a visit to the Vineyard one of your first post lockdown priorities. We hope to see you for a glass of something fizzy soon!
