As Geoff James has 'retired' from organising the long weekends away, I have made provisional reservations for up to 25 places (9 single rooms and 8 doubles/twin) at Freshwater Bay House, an HF Holidays hotel on the Isle of Wight for the three nights of Wednesday 16 to Friday 18 May. The package costs £249 per person, which includes full board and self-guided walks. There is a supplement of £10 per person for non-HF members, plus £10pp per night for premium rooms and £5pp per night for a sea view room (doubles/twins only). All rooms are en-suite. This may appear to cost more than previous years' trips, but bear in mind that evening meals and packed lunches are included, so only personal drinks are an extra expense.
I provisionally plan to do two main circular walks (one to Tennyson Down, The Needles and Alum Bay, 7 miles, and the other to Compton Down, Hanover Point and Hulverstone, 7.5 miles, plus probably shorter local walks on the first and last day.
Please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, and not later than 20 February, if you would like to come, stating your preference for single or double/twin (sharing with?), regular or premium and whether you would like a sea view. First come, first served. Ramblers members will be given priority. A £75 deposit will be required by 20 February, and balance payable by 31 March.
