Fallcliffe Details

Following Government and BMC advice, we have closed the Fallcliffe Hut and are currently not taking bookings for stays up to the end of May. For the time being, we are holding bookings for May onwards and provisionally taking new bookings for June and beyond and will review the situation towards the end of each month. The Warden has contacted all those who have bookings before the end of April to inform them that their bookings have been cancelled.
