Covid-19

Due to the current Government guidelines, Sentry Mead is currently closed whilst this lockdown is in progress.  However, we would like to re-assure guests that we are working hard to put in place lots of things to keep our guests safe and comfortable while still ensuring their stay is relaxed and restful – we feel this is more important now than ever.
We have a robust cleaning regimen in place including disinfecting all touchable surfaces throughout the day.
We have a large building and grounds for guests to relax in without being crowded.
We are going to be offering room-only rates so that guests can choose whether they add breakfast.  Also, there will be a ‘take away’ option for breakfast so that guests can eat in their rooms where they might be more at ease – see our dining page  We have also spaced the tables more in the dining room, and removed the buffet display – everything will be served direct from the kitchen.
Totland is peaceful and quiet and is the ideal place to retreat to once the social restrictions begin to lift and we will be here at Sentry Mead to welcome you during what will undoubtedly be uncertain times.
We are fully licenced and there are a number of good places to eat in or to take away from.
We look forward to welcoming you here.
