1. The coronavirus outbreak is now accelerating fast and our Prime Minister has asked everyone to remain at home unless absolutely necessary. Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays. So, for the first time, we're asking you not to visit the English Riviera whilst the world endures this pandemic.
