The new Autumn Lockdown
The Prime Minister announced plans for new lockdown measures from Thursday 5th November to Wednesday, 2nd December. Assuming these become law as planned on Wednesday 4th November 2020, we shall be required to close The Tranquil Otter business in line with the requirements.
Upcoming Bookings affected by the Autumn 2020 Lockdown
We shall be obliged to move your upcoming booking to an alternative date. There will be no charge for this. Please check the grid on our website to find the lodge and dates for your preferred replacement stay. Next, email us at email@example.com with the date and booking number of your existing booking and your preferred new dates and lodge? We’ll then email you the new booking details. If you’d like a call-back, please leave a message by phone or email.
Arriving on Monday 2nd November
The Prime Minister in his statement on 31st October set out the new national restrictions which take effect from 5th November. With respect to your holiday, the following is relevant and can be found on the Government website. Whether or not this is translated into law on Wednesday remains to be seen. For the time being our working assumption is that guests can leave on Thursday morning, 5th November 2020.
“Those currently on a domestic holiday will be allowed to finish their holidays, but are still subject to the requirements in England not to go out without a reasonable excuse,”

There are hints emerging that Lockdown may be beyond 2nd December. If this happens, we shall move your booking to a date that suits.
We don’t yet know whether Tiers will be in force in December. As the news emerges, we’ll keep you posted via a blog on our website.
We reopened in July 2020 after the first Lockdown implementing a range of measures to provide a covid-secure environment for our guests and staff. Read about our measures www.thetranquilotter.co.uk/your-stay We will continue to update our practices as new information and guidelines emerge.
