Lockdown Update for The Elvetham

With the unfortunate news that the country will now be entering into a period of national lockdown, we are sorry to say that The Elvetham will be closed until the end of February (we will review our opening date closer to the end of February subject to government advice).


We are deeply sorry for the effect that this will have on our guests who have a booking with us, especially our Wedding parties, for some of whom have already experienced the heartache of having to reschedule their big day.


We are in the process of contacting all of our guests to help rearrange your bookings to a convenient date. We thank you for your patience during this time and we look forward to inviting you all back to The Elvetham soon. In the mean time, stay safe and we wish you all the best.
