On Monday 16th March, the British Government announced an escalation of ‘social distancing’ measures that strongly advised all members of the public to avoid non-essential social contact that included visiting theatres, pubs and restaurants, amongst other venues.
Whilst this advice fell short of officially mandating the closure of all the above venues, we have considered at great length the risks posed by continuing to operate the business to our staff and to our guests. As such, whilst the official advice has not changed, we do not feel that we can conscionably continue to operate in the existing climate without being able to fully guarantee the health and security of everyone at Hencote.
This has not been an easy decision to make, but where the risks exist that our continuing operation could potentially severely impact the health of our staff and guests, we feel this the morally correct decision to make.
As such, we will be closing the Hencote Estate to the public effective immediately from today 19th March until further notice. We apologise to all our guests who have reservations across our Estate for our restaurant, accommodation or wine tours and hope you will understand our concerns that has led us to make this decision.
For the duration of our closure we will have limited access to our contact number, 01743 298444, however should you wish to get in touch please leave us a voicemail message or email us on email@example.com
We hope that you and your loved ones stay safe and well.

We had a great day. Could not fault anything. Lovely wines, delicious food and brilliant hosts. We are lucky to have this facility on our doorstep and can't wait until the restaurant opens. Highly recommended.
“I have just returned home after a wonderful stay at Hencote.”
From the moment I reached Hencote with its beautiful surroundings I began to relax. Hencote itself is pure luxury. The sumptuous bed, free standing bath and gorgeous fluffy towels were my personal favourites!
“Thank you so much for the amazing hospitality.”
The care and attention showed by the fabulous team. Luxurious yet homely feel to the accommodation. Thank you so much for the amazing hospitality. I could stay here for a month/year! I don’t think that I have ever
felt so relaxed!
