On Day four we travel to Wells, via Cheddar Gorge where we will have a photo stop; then to Wells where our guide takes us on a tour of the Cathedral, the Bishops Palace and the Vicars Close. The guide then comes with us to Montacute House before our journey back to the hotel.
Each year a short break holiday is arranged to an area not accessible on day trips for the purpose of visiting National Trust and other properties. Travel is by coach hired for the exclusive use of the members on the holiday.
This year the holiday will be based in Bath at the Limpley Stoke Hotel visiting properties and sights in the West Country and en route there both ways.
The base will be the 3* Limpley Stoke Hotel, located in a village a few minutes from Bath and its hot springs.
Leaving our pick-up point in Worthing, we will be taken to Dyrham Park a few miles north of Bath to visit the ancient deer park, 17th Century house and garden.
Later we shall be driven the few miles to the hotel, to book in for our four-night stay.
On day two we have the services of a Blue Badge guide on a coach tour of Bath in the morning. The afternoon is free time to visit at leisure some of the many attractions the city has to offer before returning to the hotel.
On the third day we will travel to Tyntesfield, near Bristol. This is a spectacular Victorian Gothic revival house with gardens and parkland. Again we will have a Blue Badge guide, which should add interest and knowledge about this Victorian estate.
