Coronavirus (Covid19)

Following the government advice of 23 March 2020, Carlton Lodge and its office are temporarily closed to protect our customers and staff. We have made arrangements for as many staff to work from home as possible and placed the rest in furlough. This means that we will be unable to offer our usual level of service during the crisis. If you have a query regarding an upcoming booking please email and one of the staff working from home will pick this up and try and answer any of your questions.

Please stay safe and well and stay at home if you possibly can and we look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
