The Club’s Group Holiday at Freshwater Bay

Petersfield Ramblers Group

2021 Holiday

Following our widely-agreed success in using HF for our holiday this year, the Committee has agreed that we will continue for 2021. We have therefore booked a 4 Night Guided Walking Holiday at Freshwater Bay House on the Isle of Wight. Details of the accommodation and facilities can be found from the following link

Please note that the walks itinerary will differ as this holiday comes within the HF “tread lightly” programme meaning that all walks will be from the house. Those of you who came to Exmoor will recall that this was the arrangement there too and proved to be very popular – all the walks were excellent. I am sure this will be the case on the IOW too.

The holiday will be from Monday 25th October to Friday 29th October (4 nights).

There are 10 single rooms available to us. Of these, 9 are “good” singles at the basic price (see below). The other one is a “better” single, which means that it is either bigger or has a sea view or some other more attractive quality. This is at a higher cost (see below). We also have 5 double rooms, although more are available on request. Single rooms will be allocated on a “first-come, first serve” basis.

The basic cost of the holiday is £350 per person. For anyone wishing to stay in a “better” room the cost is £380 per person. For “best” rooms the cost is £390.

If you wish to go, please let me know by 22nd November. A non-refundable deposit of £75 per person is payable by 22nd November. Please note this date as we have to pay Hf shortly thereafter.

Please send the money by bank transfer to the Club’s account:

The balance of the payment is due by 31st August 2021. I will send out a separate note reminding members before this date.
