Weekend Away 2018

Each year in April we offer members the opportunity to enjoy a long weekend away. The main focus is walking on the Saturday and Sunday and we offer two walks on both days. A longer, more challenging walk of about 8 miles, as well as a gentler, shorter walk of about 5 miles. There is also the opportunity for non-walkers to enjoy sight-seeing and shopping in the area. The coach is at our disposal for the full four days and we use this to its full advantage by visiting places of interest en-route, on both the outgoing and incoming journeys to our destination. 

We aim to keep the cost down as much as possible and it is usually in the region of £200 for three nights half board at the hotel, two packed lunches and all coach travel. Pick up and drop off points are in the Penistone area.


The venue for the walking weekend holiday in 2018 is The Blackwell Grange Hotel, Grange Road, Darlington DL3 8QH.  Tel. 01325 509955 (bed, breakfast and evening meal). 

The dates for the weekend holiday are Friday 20th April to Monday 23rd April 2018. 

The total cost of the holiday will be approximately £190.

A deposit of £30 is due by the beginning of October with the remaining balance due by Saturday 17th February 2018. The hotel requires the balance to be paid by 13th March 2018.

Any queries about the holiday, please contact Marilyn (Tel 01226 288410). Further details, including the final cost of the holiday, will be in the next edition of Grass Routes.

Please make cheques payable to Penistone & District Society.
