Beryl is closed until we feel it is safe to re-open. We are taking bookings from 4th July, but may have to remain closed beyond this date if advised to do so.


We have changed our pre-payment and cancellation policies, and we now take a non-refundable pre-payment of the full amount of your booking 1 week prior to check-in. Up to this time you can amend or cancel your booking free of charge.   
As a result of the impact the corona virus has had on our business we have had to make a number of changes you need to be aware of:

  • We have decided to only offer 6 guest rooms on the first floor and wing for general bookings. The second floor rooms will be available for whole house bookings exclusively.

  • We no longer offer a cooked breakfast but Continental breakfast will be served.

  • Check-In is now between 3 pm and 9 pm.

We thank you for your support and understanding on the above changes.

Please stay safe and well.
