Spring Coach and Hotel Trip to Eastbourne, Friday 24th to Sunday 26th March 2023 (2 nights)

It’s great to be able to announce that the Club is running a ‘Coach & Hotel’ trip to Eastbourne in late March 2023; many thanks to Helen for taking over the reins as Spring Trips’ Organiser!

Eastbourne claims to be the sunniest town in the UK and is the perfect place to take a short break – lying on the South coast near the beautiful rolling down land of the South Downs and iconic Seven Sisters chalk cliffs around Beachy Head. This variety of landscape gives us the chance to plan a range of A, B & C walks to suit all tastes and abilities, although some ramblers might prefer to enjoy the attractions of the town. If anyone would like to volunteer to lead B or C walks, Helen would be grateful to hear from you.

We will stay at the Lansdowne Hotel, Eastbourne www.bw-lansdownehotel.co.uk , a traditional Victorian Hotel set directly on the seafront west of the Pier.  As well as double and twin rooms for couples or pairs of friends  we have been offered 15  small single rooms at the same ‘per person’ rate. It is also possible to book a double or twin room for single occupancy, paying a supplement.

We will leave Bottisham at 10.00 on the morning of Friday 24th March and plan to arrange car parking near to the coach pick up point, (at a cost of about £10 per car). We will stop en-route at Sheffield Park Gardens, see  www.nationaltrust.org.uk , with its attractive gardens, parkland and four lakes. There will be a led walk of about 8 miles, which will not require entry into the property. Entry to the Gardens costs £14 for those who are not National Trust Members, (although  NT Life Members will be able to get in one non-member as a guest). There are also two short waymarked routes and cafe outside the formal gardens to avoid having to pay entrance.

We will return to Bottisham on the evening of 26th March.

The cost of the weekend, including two nights’ accommodation, breakfast, dinner and two packed lunches, coach and gratuities is £230 per person for a shared room or small single room, (the single rooms available to us will be allocated to the first 15 who request them), or £260 for single occupancy of a double or twin room.

Bookings please to Helen Greathead at  secretary@cambridgeramblingclub.com . A non-refundable deposit of £75 is to be paid to the Club’s account at booking, preferably by bank transfer, with the final payment to be made by Monday 20th February 2023. The bank account details are available from Helen; please reference ‘Eastbourne’.
