Holidays & Trips Away

Different places to walk are a nice thing about trips away!
It was a tad on the snowy side in Bala (fortunately the lake was at the bottom of the hill, unfortunately the stream wasn’t)

We try to have weekends and longer trips away, about two or three times a year. These trips are volunteer organised and lead. In the past we’ve been to Somerset, Dorset and Snowdonia on weekend trips; the Lake District, Perthshire and Spain on longer trips.

Each trip away is different, depending upon the organiser, but all have a mix of days walks and evening socialising, whether down the local establishment, or sitting around a large (and usually full) dinning table. If we have any trips coming up, below is the place to find them! – if there isn’t any there, have you ever thought of organising one?

Trips away coming up!

Weekend in Lulworth Cove @ YHA Lulworth Cove
Nov 23 – Nov 25 all-day


Whether you have been many times before, or would be coming for your first time, the beauty of the coastline and countryside around Lulworth Cove will never cease to amaze and inspire. Come and join us in this gem on the Jurassic Coast where we will have our own resident geologist who will be able to explain the wonders of the rocky coastline around us. The walks have yet to be decided but we will look to include Durdle Door, the Stair Hole, the Fossil Forest and possibly some ventures further inland. Given the time of year, we may well be blessed with a beautiful sunset at the end of our walks.

We have exclusive hire of the YHA Lulworth Cove, which has a maximum capacity of 34 so we should have plenty to space. Final costs will be shared once final numbers are known, but, as an indication, and based on an occupancy of 20 people, the accommodation cost for the Friday and Saturday nights combined would be £38. For those who might not be so keen to stay in the YHA, then please feel free to book your own accommodation and come and join us on the walks – details of which to be provided.

Whilst I am optimistic that we will have sunshine, this is the UK and rainclouds are never far away, so please bring a pair of good walking boots and a full set of waterproofs.
