Coronavirus Holidaymaker Update, updated 7 July 2020

SuitcaseThe below information has been put together to update holidaymakers on the current position re cottage holidays in the UK.

Can I now book a holiday cottage in the UK?

Following the lockdown in March 2020 to contain the coronavirus outbreak, the UK has now eased travel restrictions for residents in the UK. 

Holidays within the UK are now possible although social distancing rules apply

  • Although holidays are now permitted, obviously there are still rules in place when it comes to social distancing which holidaymakers should familiarise themselves with.
  • In Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland it's now possible to book holiday accommodation and stay in self-catering accommodation within any of these countries and travel between the countries that make up the UK.
  • Holidaymakers obviously need to be aware that the spread of coronavirus is being constantly monitored and that local lockdowns such as the recent lockdown in Leicester are still possible.
  • Check arrangements and booking conditions with cottage agencies and independent owners prior to booking. The above information and advice applies to residents in the UK who have not been abroad in the past 14 days.
