This morning I read on Gov.uk that because of the coronavirus crisis the Foreign & Commonwealth Office currently advises British nationals against all but essential international travel.
Inbound & domestic tourism – UK
VisitBritain & VisitEngland predict that inbound tourism to the UK in 2020, as of June 3rd, is for a decline of 59% in visits to 16.8m and 63% in spending to £10.6bn.
This would represent a loss vs the pre-COVID forecast of 25.3m visits and £19.7bn spend.
Regarding domestic tourism, they predict £39.2bn in domestic tourism spending in 2020, down 48% compared to 2019 when spending by domestic tourists in England was £75.9bn.
This comprises £10.0bn from overnight tourism, down from £19.5bn in 2019, and £29.1bn from day trips, down from £56.5bn in 2019.
If this is the situation then why not discover new golf courses in the UK, for instance, The Manor House Golf Club (Designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark) in the Cotswold countryside.
In my previous article, I have already highlighted why do I think of The Manor House Golf Club‘s membership. In short, it was designed and developed in a very professional way to create value for future golf club members.
This time, I will focus on The Manor House‘s holiday package.
Packages at The Manor House
The Manor House hotel is a luxury 14th-century country house with a Michelin starred restaurant, alfresco dining, and a dedicated gin bar.
Complete with 21 comfortable, individually styled rooms and suites – as well as 29 picturesque cottages full of character – the hotel is full of charm and traditional quirky features.
The Castle Inn is a cozy 12th-century country pub which sits in the heart of the village, opposite the adjacent main hotel, offering 12 unique en-suite bedrooms and delicious homemade food.
The pub is particularly popular among groups of golfers looking for more affordable accommodation and a pint or two of the local beer on offer.
The Manor House’s overnight accommodation facilities have all now reopened with strict safety precautions in place.
