We provide a regular BLOG to give you a flavour of our adventures:
So I have just returned from Skipton (we were staying at the Rendezvouz Hotel , situated on the canal) and we were lucky not to get caught in all that bad weather! The Settle to Carlisle Railway (which happened to be one of the highlights on the tour) was closed the day after we travelled along it due to a landslide which was down to torrential rain as you may have seen on the news. We also had to change the itinerary on this holiday as the Emmerdale Studio Tours cancelled our booking due to filming schedules, however we decided to visit Haworth instead and we weren't dissapointed.. Haworth is home of the Bronte sisters making is the undisputed literary mecca so we couldn't miss a visit to their old home which has now been turned into a museum. Now back in the office for a few weeks I am working on our new brochure which will be with you all the first week of September.... exciting stuff to come! Bye for now - Helen.
So sorry this blog is late in coming. It's been a busy time in the office, working on our next brochure.
This trip to paradise (aka - The Isles of Scilly) did not disappoint. After a reasonably smooth crossing from Penzance we were soon checked into & relaxing in this Sea front hotel - The Atlantic Hotel.
The following day we boarded a small boat & visited the neighbouring Island of Tresco. The gardens here are stunning and colourful. Several of us likened them to Overbecks.
The next few days were free to enjoy time here. Lots of our customers took boats to the other Islands, some lucky ones even got to see Puffins. I, myself decided to hire a push bike to explor the island. I'm still saddle sore to this day!
These Islands promote outstanding beauty, uncrowded & unspoilt. I can definitly confirm this is the case. This holiday will be back by popular demand next year. So keep an eye out for our new brochure coming to your door step soon. Next week I'm off to Anglesey - so its island life for me. Bye for now. Lisa
I'm back in the office this week after spending last week in North Wales.
Myself and Bill took our new coach away (with its half-finished paint job!), customers seemed to approve of the new paint even though it wasn't finished & the paint was practically still wet when we left Devon last Mondy!
We stayed on the sea front in Prestatyn - a lovely spot, if a bit windy. This wind continued to cause us drama, our trip up Snowdonia on the mountain railway was dependant on a wind reading taken half way up. We all had our fingers crossed when the train driver told us "fasten your safety belts, we're going to the top".
The weather also put a few customers off going on a boat trip up the Menai Straights. Those of us that did brave it enjoyed a 1.5 hour boat trip taking in some wild life, some views of houses of the rich and famous & lots of information about the history of Angelsey & those that lived there.
Oh.... not forgetting I now know how to say "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch". All the best, Lisa.
