We're staying alert, helping to control the virus and saving lives...
(Updated; Wednesday 13th May 2020)
Sadly, we remain closed following the latest Government update, it's looking like the Summer will be the earliest we are able to open our doors once again. Due to the nature of our business and the arrangement and layout of our fabulous 500-year old home in central Bath; social distancing just isn't an option for us whilst being open. We are constantly reviewing all of the information being released and working with our supporting functions so plans are ever evolving and we can't wait to be able to welcome you back. The safety of our team and visitors is paramount and we will only re-open once we are completely confident it is safe to do so.
All of our team have been furloughed or are otherwise being supported so we will all be here waiting to greet you once we are able to open again. We know you'll be dreaming of a post isolation "re-tox" so do keep an eye on our social media channels for light relief from the news....
We look forward to seeing you very soon!
Emma, Roger, Amber, Bonnie, Ellie, Evie, James and not forgetting Cadbury the spaniel (company secretary and expert home worker).

What is the Corona Virus?
The World Health Organisation explains that coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). This particular episode has been named ‘COVID-19’. It first appeared in December 2019 in Wuhan, which is within the Hubei province, China. A seafood market has been identified as the possible source of the virus. Very many countries around the world have cases of Coronavirus; some are more severely affected than others.
What are the symptoms?
Symptoms include fever, cough and shortness of breath. Some people will suffer from mild illness and recover easily whilst, in other cases, infection can progress to pneumonia. Reports suggest that the elderly, those with weakened immune systems, diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease are the most susceptible. Symptoms can appear in as few as two days after infection but it is thought that it can take up to 24 days. Employees who experience symptoms should follow Government advice on reporting this, which may include either internet or telephone services depending on the individual’s location in the UK. Note that this may not include calling 111, which has been the general advice until now.
