Change of ownership

From David & Joan Hardman

It is with a very heavy heart that we must announce that a contract for the sale of East
Lodge has been agreed. The hotel will cease trading in its present form and will close its
doors on September 5th . Until then we shall continue to give our guests the level of service
and professionalism which we have always done.

There are still 6 weeks to go so we’d love to see you for an East Lodge afternoon tea or a
champagne breakfast. Maybe treat yourself to an overnight stay: there’s a special rate for
guests who book direct on our website Of course, we would love to
see as many of our valued guests as possible before September.

The decision to sell East Lodge was a difficult one for us to make but we feel that Anno
Domini has caught up with us and the time is now right. We wish the new owners every bit
as much happiness as we have had.

We can’t begin to fully express our deep gratitude for the business and the support you
have given the Hardman family and our staff at East Lodge for almost 25 years.

In the next few days, we will be contacting everyone who has made a reservation or enquiry
for September 4th onwards. Please do get in touch on 01629 734474 or by email –
