In these stormy times the government and local authorities are advising against all travel for holiday purposes and, in the interests of social separation we are not taking hire bookings until the crisis passes. This is the latest from Keswick Tourism Association:
"The latest government advice states that essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays. People should remain in their primary residence. Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk.
Cumbria’s health services are only resourced for the resident population which is around half a million with a large proportion of elderly people. We all have a responsibility – visitors, tourism businesses and residents - to heed government advice and help save lives.
We will welcome you back to Keswick and the Lake District once this is over but for now we are asking you to stay at home for the safety of everyone."
