ITINERARY

Monday 10 October

We depart the local area and after refreshment stops on route, arrive at our hotel for the next 4 nights in time for dinner.

|

Tuesday 11 October

Today we enjoy a visit to Belsay Hall, Castle & Gardens. Boasting sweeping views over gentle rolling countryside, and set within the evocative landscape of Northumberland's 'border country'. The Belsay that visitors see today comprises three distinct but related elements: a medieval castle that was enlarged in the early 17th century, a Greek revival mansion that superseded it as a family residence at the beginning of the 19th century, and an outstanding garden linking the two buildings.

|

Wednesday 12 October

Today we visit the open air Beamish Museum, which tells the story of life in the North East during the 1820s, 1900s and 1940s, all set within 300 acres of beautiful countryside. Experience life in the 1820s at Pockerley, explore a 1900s town and see how families lived and worked in the years leading up to the First World War. Visit the Colliery & Pit village and discover how life was on the home front during the Second World War on the Farm with Land Girls and the Home Guard.

|

Thursday 13 October

Today we visit Raby Castle one of the most impressive intact castles in the North of England. Built in the 14th century by the powerful Nevill family, it has a long history. Home to Cecily Nevill, mother of two kings of England, it was also the scene of the plotting of the Rising of the North and a Parliamentary stronghold during the Civil War. On our return to the hotel we take a scenic drive through the stunning North Pennines ANOB.
