Rookhow re-opening on 4th July

Jun 26, 2020

Sue Nicholls, Development Manager of Rookhow, has written to let us know

“the bunk-barn only will be re-opening for weekend sole use bookings from 4th July for groups made up of 1-2 households.  Cost: £600 for 2 nights (Fri-Sun) with a 3rd night half price, so £750 for Fri-Mon.  We’ve carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment and have put safety measures in place, including a thorough clean and leaving at least 72 hours between stays. A further reduction may be available if the cost is prohibitive for a small group/family, so please get in touch to enquire about this. 

By staying here you’ll also help to support our charitable work. At the moment the Quaker Meeting House is closed for renovations and we’re busy offering opportunities for locals and Quakers to get together over Zoom for cafes, weekly Epilogue and socials. We’re hoping to especially make Rookhow available for people who need a break away after this challenging time.

Please get in touch if you’d like to make a booking or check availability on our website”

Best wishes,

Sue Nicholls, Development Manager
