AN EXTRA HOLIDAY IN 2019 - hooray!
We have an exciting opportunity to add an extra holiday to our 2019 programme. Is anyone interested in a 4 nights break with HF Holidays staying in their Northern Snowdonia hotel Beddgelert?
HF have offered us a massive 40% reduction on the regular price and although the date, 25th March (Monday) is quite close to our Brecon weekend we couldn't resist seeing if there's any interest. The cost will be £215 (normally £359) which includes 4 nights (arrive Monday; depart Friday) bed, breakfast, evening meal, packed lunch and walk guides. This will be a little different from our usual HF weekends as we'll be using HF walk leaders for the first time in this country. They will also provide us with some evening entertainment.
Beddgelert is situated on a National Trust estate at the foot of Snowdon, one mile from the village of Beddgelert. The walks on offer include the summits of Snowdon, Glyder Fach, Moel Hebog, Chicht and the greener valleys and heritage of the area on the easier walks. Easier walks are level 2, so not entirely flat and the harder walks are levels 4/5.

SPRING 2019 5-8 April 2019
We'll be staying at HF Holidays Nythfa House Hotel, Brecon Beacons for 3 nights from Friday 5 April 2019. The price is expected to come in at around £240 (dependent upon the discounts we receive) and includes an en-suite room, bed, breakfast, evening meal and packed lunches on the Saturday and Sunday.
There will be walks on all 4 days with the Friday and Monday walks allowing for travel to/from home. We will use our own walk leaders as this keeps the cost down. There will also be some home spun evening entertainment. Some of the rooms are in the Garden Room annex.
Zakopane, Poland, July 2019
1 JULY 2019 for one week, staying in Zakopane, Poland. Zakopane is located at the foot of the Tatra Mountains. There will be a choice of high level walks in the mountains and walks with less climbing. We'll be using HF Holidays who will provide us with the walk leaders as well as half board accommodation in the Belvedere Hotel, transport to the start of walks and transfers to and from the airport. The estimated cost (dependent on numbers attending) will be around £950. Single rooms are limited and there is a hefty single room supplement of £26 per night. A non-refundable deposit (unless I can sell the room) of £150 is required to reserve a room.
