Weekends Away 2017/2018
Planned so far:
Glaramara, Lake District July 2017
A weekend in lodge-style hotel accommodation close to Keswick which provides all meals from Friday dinner to Sunday breakfast – you also get packed lunches, a ceilidh on Friday evening & a range of guided walks.
Hathersage, Peak District July 2017
Situated in the heart of the village, the St Michael’s Centre is a former school providing walking opportunities from the door and lots of ‘tourist’ options (Chatsworth, Buxton, etc). Three nights also give you opportunities for a cycle ride or a dip in the local outdoor swimming pool.
Greenhowe, Great Langdale October 2017
Our four luxury lodges are in the centre of Great Langdale and 10 minutes walk from the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel – the lodges have shared terraces should weather be good enough to sit outside. There are many low & high level walking routes from the door, and more relaxing ‘tourist’ options in Ambleside a short drive or bus ride away.
Malham, North Yorkshireb December 2017
After our last visit in 2015 when we were almost flooded out and saw a Malham Cove waterfall (right), we hope for better weather this year. We have sole use of part of the YHA hostel, close to the pub for our Friday night meal – other meals included. Plenty of walking and touring opportunities.
Romaldkirk, Teesdale March 2018
We are staying in two cottages on a farm in this pictures¬que small village near Barnard Castle. A local pub provides for our Friday night meal but other meals are included in the weekend cost. There are plenty of walking/cycling routes from here and use of buses extends options – local towns provide options for more relaxing activities.
Seahouses, Northumberland July 2018
A new venue in a popular destination, the accom¬modation is on the edge of a village famous for its fish and chips. Lots of walks along the beach or inland across the fields – you can head out to the Farne Islands to see the puffins and terns. The string of coastal castles are worth a visit, with buses providing non-driving options
Most weekends are now over three nights (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) and feature higher quality accommodation. The total cost is usually between £50 and £100, covering
accommodation, three breakfasts and Saturday/Sunday evening meals – two-nighters are a little cheaper. Food is arranged by a nominated ‘chef’ but all assist with preparation, washing up and housekeeping.
Other IVC’s also sometimes organise weekends away and holidays, sometimes to more luxurious hotels and B & B’s, which our members are invited to. Upcomng ones not shown here are publicised in our monthly bulletin.
