Health & Safety

As the country moves forward with the easing of COVID related restrictions, we are mindful of the different ways in which these changes are viewed by our clients and visitors and our colleagues too. For some, there will be anxiety and concern that the measures which have protected us will be reduced, whilst others will be happy that they have been relaxed.

Throughout these challenging times, we hope we have been able to adapt to the ever-changing circumstances, trying to strike the right balance between prioritising health and safety whilst delivering the best visitor experience we can. We will continue to do our best to make a visit to us safe, comfortable and enjoyable for all and would like to confirm that we are continuing to implement the following COVID related systems:

- In line with Government and Public Health England advice, face coverings are required when on the premises.

- We have extensive washroom/hygiene facilities throughout the building.

- We will continue to offer free auction valuations at both our Leyburn and Harrogate (a booked appointment is strongly advised) and we welcome clients to view and attend auctions (no appointment is necessary). As we are fortunate to have large, spacious premises, social distancing has not been an issue so far, however we will continue to monitor the number of attendees at our sales so that everyone can feel safe and comfortable.

Our services and opening hours remain unchanged.

The Garden Rooms, Café and Bistro
All our front of house staff will be wearing face coverings at all times and the current distancing of tables in the Café and Bistro will be unchanged. Table service will also continue in the Café and booking for both the Café and Bistro is strongly advised.

Our services and opening hours remain unchanged.
