The wellbeing and peace of mind of our guests and everyone connected to High Ridge Barn is of paramount importance. To that end we have introduced a number of measures as per below.


Any bookings for this year that are cancelled due to the current Coronavirus restrictions may be moved to later this year, or to the same dates in 2021 at no extra cost. If a booking is unable to be moved, a 100% refund will be issued. Please note that refunds made though global rental portals are handled directly with those sites.

We will taking new bookings for summer 2020 as soon as the UK government permits.

We will be allowing 2 clear days between check out and check ins, to permit time for the additional cleaning regimen, and to reduce any contamination risk. Back-to-back same-day departures/arrivals will be put on hold until further notice.
