£52 for two nights including supplement. Includes bed in shared single sex room (6 bed female room, 6 bed male room) at YHA Wilderhope Manor. Nearer the time you will be asked if you want to pay for breakfast, lunch and / or dinner from the hostel, costs to be communicated in due course. TO BOOK A PLACE: You need to pay the £52 in full now please. Steve will send you a link to pay online and would like payment within 72 hours please. Please ONLY book a place if you intend to pay promptly for it.
Likely to be two outdoor activity options each day. Saturday: Longer 12+ mile walk probably including some hills. Also probably a slower, shorter walk with longer lunch and maybe town or National Trust property visit as will be bringing 16 month old baby son. Sunday: 6-8 mile main walk. Probably second slower, shorter walk with longer lunch again with baby son. Might be need to coordinate and share travel between walks each day. It's the weekend the clocks go back so we all get An Extra Hour At The Manor which probably means an extra hour to socialise on the Saturday evening and / or an extra hour in bed on the Sunday morning. Aim to finish the Sunday walks by 3pm latest so we can be home 6-7pm.
For main walk each day bring packed lunch, snacks and liquids. For the slower walk each day likely to be option to get lunch at pub or shop etc. I plan to eat dinner at the hostel on the Saturday night - please select that cost option for the Saturday night if you want to join me. Hostel has licensed bar.
