Brecon weekend

Dear all,

Tim and I are organising a weekend away in the Brecon Beacons from Friday 12- Monday 15 July (its a minimum 3 night stay). We’re staying in Forest Lodge Farmhouse just outside Brecon where we can walk from the house. The accommodation is single beds in male / female bedrooms. The female bedroom has an en suite shower. There are two other showers in the farmhouse.


The cost for the weekend will be a maximum of £80 depending on final numbers.

Please let us know if you’d like to come along, by replying to the info@ email address or contacting us directly if you have our email addresses. We’ll ask for a £20 deposit initially and the balance will be payable at the end of April.

With best wishes,

Belinda and Tim


Weekend of walking and beer in Leicestershire, 21- 22 September

Rachel has suggested a weekend in and around Melton Mobray, please let us know if you’re interested, by contacting Rachel or replying to this email. You’ll be responsible for booking your own accommodation, but we can try and pair people up if they want to share rooms. Here’s her description:

Knowing how much the rambling group like beer and roast dinners I thought I’d combine the two this year and put out a “weekend away” option for you to sample the delights of my home town, Melton Mowbray. What’s there to see you may ask, well for starters there’s a two headed calf in the museum and to finish it’s the home of the pork pie!

On the weekend of the 20-22 September it is the annual beer festival (http://meltonmowbraymarket.co.uk/17th-annual-beer-festival-2019/) it is not the most vibrant festival you’ll ever go to but there will be lots of different beers, some ciders & last year there were several gin selections too.

There is a premier inn 5 minutes walk from the beer, that currently has twin / double rooms at about £57.

There are lots of nice walks around the town so if there is interest from people to do so I can plan something for the Saturday as well as a Sunday walk over near the amazing carvery at The Golden Fleece in South Croxton so just let me know what you are thinking.

Rough plan could be, do a shortish walk on Saturday and head to the beer festival late afternoon/ early evening. Sunday breakfast at the always bargainous Wetherspoons, a 9-10 mile walk and then late afternoon roast which is handily on the way back towards Northampton.
