Each year the club organises a four-day walking holiday at a suitable hotel located in a great walking area.  The holiday is open to all members and spouses, with all walking capabilities being catered for.   Around 35 members normally attend, and this allows the club to obtain discounted rates.  The walks and the hotel are normally of a high standard and members consider the holiday to be great fun and good value for money.  To ensure that the walks meet the likes of our members they are arranged and led by our own walk leaders.

2020 Walking Holiday - Lulworth Cove, Dorset - 25th to 28th September 2020

Arrangements have now been made for the Walking Group annual holiday 2020 at HF Holidays, West Lulworth House in Dorset.  Please note the new September date as opposed to the June date originally notified in the Chairman’s Chat of the 29th April.
HF Holidays have substantially increased their prices, particularly for the summer months.  To provide best value for money, the Committee agreed to change the date to September when the prices are more reasonable. We hope to have sole occupancy of the House which can accommodate up to 34 participants.

The price for all rooms for 3 night’s accommodation, single or double, will be £264 pp.
There are two exceptions to the above:
2 x single rooms in Walkers Cottage adjacent to the House.  This building is actually newer than the main building and the rooms are furnished to the same standard as the main house.  However, although they are not en suite each has its own private bathroom opposite the bedroom.  These rooms are discounted by £5pp/pn to £249.
1 x “Value” twin en suite room inside the House is also discounted by £5pp/pn to £249 pp.  This room is of a good standard but is above the kitchen.  Apparently, there could be some noise from the fan from 7.00 am to approximately 8.30 pm. This may be of interest to any early risers who will be out walking all day!
Booking forms will be issued in mid July 2019.  As there are fewer beds available than in previous years, reservations will be accepted on a first come first served basis on receipt of the completed form only.  Sorry, no bookings will be accepted beforehand.
A booklet on West Lulworth House is attached together with the conditions of booking.                 
Best Wishes
John and Hilary Smart
