As at 23/3/20 the UK government have now ordered a lockdown for 3 weeks where people are ordered to only leave their homes for a few reasons such as:
• Basic food shopping,
• Exercise once a day
• Medical needs or to provide care or help for a vulnerable person,
• Travel to and from work if absolutely essential and unable to work from home.
The lockdown has been imposed to try to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
The government have said that they will review the situation in 3 weeks time. Taking a break in a holiday cottage would obviously currently not be possible at this time whilst this lockdown is being imposed.
