Historical Weekends



15th - 17th February 2019: Hardraw Weekend


John Ireland


A bracing midwinter weekend in the North Yorkshire Dales in the upper reaches of Wensleydale, an area full of walking opportunities through which the Pennine Way runs.

The bunkhouse is in an old converted school in the village of Hardraw near to amenities including a pub and a couple of miles from Hawes, also a notable walking and culinary destination.

My legendary curries (both meaty and vegetarian) will be served in Friday night together with dessert and on Saturday evening we will dine at one of the nearby pubs.

A long walk will be undertaken on the Saturday on the hills to the north of Hardraw, including Great Shunner fell, with a shorter walk on Sunday from Hawes along Wensleydale.


Booking opens at midday on Boxing Day - send emails to to book.





18th - 22nd April 2019: Easter 2019 in Ambleside, Lake District


Tom Whitehead and Karolina Zoramskyte


Set in the perfect location close to Ambleside, Shackleton Lodge is a (almost) brand new luxury bunkhouse. A wide range of walks suitable for all members will be offered, including (should there be the demand) scrambles and super-strenuous walks. All four evening meals, including the highlight of a BBQ, are included as well as all breakfasts and lunches. The weekend covers Easter so no holiday other than Bank Holidays is required.
