These trips are a great way to meet new people and extend our walking itinerary. We usually stay in youth hostels, cottages, bunkhouses or even go camping. Group size is often 8-10 and we try to share transport to and from the weekend, share the cooking and enjoy two walks- one on the Saturday and one on the Sunday before heading home around 3 or 4pm. Cost varies but a typical weekend can cost 20 -30 pounds for accommodation and maybe 10 pounds for food.
Weeks away can vary between 120 and 180 pounds
A deposit is needed by the organiser in order to book accomodation and then accounts are normally settled by the end of the weekend. Booking for weekends is required in advance in order to assist the organiser. If there is a weekend you wish to go on, contact the organiser as soon as possible.
From time to time, we have whole weeks away such as New Year or Easter.
Our weekly events are mostly centred around walking and the outdoors. We aim to walk every Weekend and on Thursdays through the lighter months of the year. Thursday evenings in the Winter are usually social affairs such as meals, cinema trips, slideshows, quizzes etc.
