Know Before You Go - Important Information

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Our priority is to protect our local community, our visitors, our residents and the beautiful landscape around us. When visiting White Cliffs Country we ask you please to follow Government guidelines as well as our own, to ensure that we all stay safe.

The Government re-introduced a National Lockdown in England on 5th January 2021, with guidance not to leave home except when necessary.

In line with the Government’s announcement, many of the hospitality businesses in White Cliffs Country are currently providing goods and services under new restrictions. Restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars, for example, may be offering a take-away service for the purchase of food and non-alcoholic drinks; hotels may be offering accommodation for essential purposes. We recommend that you check with individual businesses, since you may be required to book ahead, online or by phone.

Many of our parks, gardens and beaches in White Cliffs Country remain open under current Government guidelines on accessing green space and outdoor exercise. We regularly update our website with changes but would recommend that you use it for inspiration; plan ahead and check the sites of the places you want to visit directly, as some will need to be pre-booked in advance. More advice on leaving home for exercise can be found here.

The following recommendations will help ensure that you enjoy White Cliffs Country safely:


Contactless payment has become common practice across the country. If you prefer to pay with cash, it will be advisable to check with the business ahead of your purchase.

Face coverings

Currently in England it is mandatory to wear face masks on public transport. It is also currently mandatory to wear face coverings in all shops and in restaurants, bars and cafes unless seated at a table.

In line with Government guidance, we recommend that social distancing, frequent hand-washing and wearing face coverings remain the key actions to help protect everyone. Many of our businesses have invested in additional hygiene measures as part of their Covid-secure protocols to help keep everyone safe.
