Dear Guests of Byron,

In light of recent concerns surrounding the spread of coronavirus, we are sure you have seen that the Government has issued updated guidelines which we are responding to and adopting on a daily basis. We are in unprecedented times and we are doing our best to navigate this situation in the right way.

Further to the latest update from the UK Government on the tiered system to be introduced in England from 3rd December, we are pleased to confirm Byron at Woolacombe Bay will OPEN from 3rd December. The Byron complex is located in Woolacombe, North Devon, which is designated as a Tier 2 area. 

We are allowed to accommodate stays from 3rd December from guests (from one household/support bubble) who come from Tier 1 and Tier 2 areas. 

If you have pre-booked a visit to Byron and live in an area that is designated as Tier 3 you are advised by the Government not to travel. All guests who live in Tier 3 can defer their stay at Byron into 2021.
