Cheltenham budget weekend, Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd November 2019 (2 nights)

The Club will be exploring more of the delightful Cotswolds in early November 2019, based in Cheltenham. Our preferred base is the Cheltenham Central (West/A40) Premier Inn, which has a restaurant on site. Unfortunately our interest has sparked a price hike on the website;  the room cost for a double/twin room for the first weekend in November was £110.50 for the ‘Saver’ rate for this weekend when checked in early January . As it is only possible to book a maximum of 4 rooms at a time, we are asking anyone wanting to come along to book themselves in. However, if anyone would like to share a twin room, please let Jill know so she can put people in touch. Prices may well go down in a couple of months. An alternative option is to book in at the nearby Cheltenham Travelodge, located a little further west in Golden Valley, Hatherley Lane. The November 2019 room prices here are £73 for the two nights in a double standard room, Saver rate, when checked in early January. Please let Jill know if you have booked.

A week’s walking in North Yorkshire – Friday 9th to Friday 16th August, 2019

The Club has booked two properties in central Whitby, on the north Yorkshire coast, for the week Friday 9th to Friday 16th August 2019 at a cost of £195 per person for the week. We are asking for a deposit of £60 payable on reservation, with the balance payable next June. The accommodation is of very high quality and close to the coast. The local walking is great and very varied; the coast path (part of the Cleveland Way), provides at least two days walking and the north York moors are on our doorstep. Both properties are now full, so please book your own accommodation if you want to join us or let Jill know if you want to be on a reserve list,   Whitby can be accessed by public transport from Cambridge.
