Our Response to the Corona virus

Coronavirus Statement

We are aware of the ongoing and developing situation surrounding the Coronavirus. We are working daily to plan for various eventualities. We have implemented rigorous policies and procedures which, as far as possible, will ensure the health and wellbeing of all our guests and staff. We are operating activity as usual and are ready to welcome you, in fact, what better time to get away from it all to refresh at Ashburnham Place.

Current Bookings

If you have an existing booking with us and are exploring the best course of action, here are the options we can offer:


As you can imagine being in the Hospitality sector our income has been severely affected. We are open for individual bookings as we feel the measures we have put in place are in line with government recommendations.

If you have an existing group booking with us we are currently able to host groups of up to 30 in any one meeting room. From 1st October 2020, we expect this number to increase but we will have reduced capacity due to needing to introduce social distancing measures to make the site safe.

Option 1 - Come as planned

We can reassure you that we have:

* We have reduced our site capacity (including bedrooms, meeting rooms and dining rooms) to make social distancing easier and the site safer
* Increased our daily cleaning schedules
* Installed hand sanitising units at entrances and dining rooms, and installed papers towel dispensers in public toilets
* Introduced a restrictive travel policy for all of our team
* Holding regular team briefings for all of our team
* Installed anti-bacterial door push plates

If your group numbers may reduce as a result of proceeding with your event as planned, we want to help you with this and we can discuss options available to you.

Option 2 – Postpone your event

If we are not able to host your group due to a restriction with our capacity we are happy to look at postponing your event to a later date when a higher capacity should be possible. If you feel you cannot attend we will, if possible, rearrange your booking to an alternative date before December 31st 2021, subject to availability.

Option 3 – Cancel your event

Cancel your visit and not come. Sadly, due to the potential impact of many guests cancelling we are not in a position to alter our normal terms and conditions and therefore would not be able to return deposits at this late stage.

If you would like to discuss any of the options please feel free to contact our Group Bookings Team on  01424 894207/ 894238.

If your booking is after 30th September 2020 our existing terms and conditions will apply. We are hoping that by this time the worst of the virus will have passed and guests can come and enjoy their time at Ashburnham Place.

Our church weekend was the best we have had for years. The location, the facilities and the staff were outstanding. We can't wait to come back next year.
