Some 112 Long Distance Walkers enjoyed walks direct from the hotel, reaching as far as Cheddar and the surrounding countryside.The highlight of the weekend was the Gala Dinner at the Hotel which was enhanced by excellent food and first class service. The mixture of good walking, a splendid Dinner followed by an energic Barn Dance was enjoyed by everyone.
Prior to the walks, on the previous evening, we had enjoyed a talk by John Merrill the famous author on his various walking adventures including walking around the coast of the UK.
As organiser of the weekend, which included the AGM on the final day, I found the staff worked with me all the way. Attention to detail was first class,everything we asked for was made possible, the food for all meals was well cooked and served well. The Manager and her staff had spent time planning the weekend with me and this was time very well spent in producing a first class weekend.
