HOLIDAY TO CUMBRIA AND THE LAKE DISTRICT
MONDAY SEPTEMBER 21 TO SEPTEMBER 25, 2020
Below is a leaflet outlining the Club's proposed Holiday to Cumbria and the Lake District next September. As you will see we are staying at the 4* Appleby Manor Hotel and intend two full day tours into the Lake District and a third more relaxed day on the Settle to Carlisle Railway. Our outward northern journey on the Monday will hopefully allow us time to stop at Tatton Park (NT) whilst coming South on the Friday gives us the opportunity to stop at the iconic 'Brief Encounter' experience at Carnforth Station. All in all this five day trip should be full of interest and exceptional visual satisfaction whilst allowing you to enjoy quality hospitality in Appleby.
The cost of £495 includes luxury coach travel throughout (toilet on board), Dinner, Bed and Breakfast at the 4* Appleby Manor, all entrance fees and excursions set out in the Itinerary, wine with Dinner each evening, a special welcome gathering on the Monday Evening, morning Refreshments each day except Monday and the Coach Driver's gratuities
Those items not included and for your personal attention are the cost of refreshments on the Monday and lunch expenditure throughout, any additional drinks beyond the wine served at Dinner, all personal expenditure and the cost of Travel Insurance. You are recommended to take out Insurance cover but it is not compulsory.
We have 6 Single Rooms available and these carry a Supplement of £80 per person.
As you will appreciate, we have moved the Holiday departure date forward by one week and hopefully this will ensure a better chance of really good weather. We are also trying to make travelling a little less frenetic and the more relaxed trip on the middle Wednesday supports this. A further objective this year is to try to improve quality bar and lounge time at the Hotel. Otherwise the Holiday will follow the pattern of previous trips.
If you have been on one of the previous Probus Holidays you will know how convivial, friendly, enjoyable and successful they have been. If you have not and especially if you are one of the Club's newer members, please do consider joining us. You should not be disappointed.
If you are persuaded to participate and join the Holiday please complete the attached pro-forma (click here) and return this with your non-refundable Deposit of £50 per person to John Edney at the next Club Meeting on January 7. We need 36 to make this Holiday viable whilst 40-42 would be the preferred take-up.
