£95.90 inclusive of supplement for 2 nights accommodation with breakfast on both mornings. £10 supplement for attendees from Meetup.
For the new year break we are staying at the Dog House Hotel near Abingdon in the Oxfordshire countryside.
Saturday: We check into our hotel, then we plan a 6-mile walk. From venue we take a short walk along the road then into the woodlands. A short climb not too steep through fields to the Old Rectory. The walk takes us along the lake into woodlands and Parsonage Moor. Our return leg sees us passing the nature reserve and quarry, returning to our hotel for a scrumptious evening meal.
Sunday: After a full hearty breakfast included in price, we will car-share to the stunning little village of Sunningwell to start our 8-mile walk. We pass through the church then into Blackthorn Woods and Foxcombe Hill. Ascending towards Youlburypool this will be a steady climb passing heathland following the Green Belt Way. Then down into the woodland, after a refreshing lunch stop, we will have time to explore Chilswell House and Carmelite Priory. We continue downwards with amazing views towards West Woods, skirting around Woodcraft Wood. After we descend down the quarry, we arrive back at Sunningwell for some well-deserved refreshments. We then drive back to our hotel for a freshen-up and see in the new year with a scrumptious meal.
Monday: We will have our hearty breakfast included in price and bid our farewells.
