30 September 2011
York & Heartbeat Country

 
Goathland, alias "Aidensfield" The Newington Hotel

Duration: 4 Day Minibreak

For almost 2000 years, York has played a leading role in England’s history. Even without its crowning glory - a cathedral of breathtaking grandeur - it would be a city of outstanding beauty, interest and ageless charm.

ITINERARY:
Friday: An early start for our journey to our Hotel in York. Stops will be made on the way for refreshments.

Saturday: The day is free for you to explore York with its lovely Minster with its stained glass windows, narrow streets called the Shambles, York Museum and Heritage Centre.

Sunday: After breakfast, we take a ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway from Goatland (Adensfield in Heartbeat and Hogsmeade in Harry Potter films) to Whitby with its beautiful 13th century Abbey. Old cobbled streets, picturesque houses and a sandy beach with 199 steps leading down from the Abbey to the old town where you will find yourself in a shoppers’ paradise.

Monday: We say farewell to our hotel and York and make our way home calling at Ashbourne in Derbyshire, known as the gateway to Dovedale. There is much to do in Ashbourne. We estimate to be back home mid evening.

ACCOMMODATION:
The Newington Hotel is situated on the Royal Approach, a few minutes walk from the city centre and right next to York Racecourse. The comfortable en-suite bedrooms have hairdryer, colour TV and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel has various lounges, a bar lounge and an indoor pool and sauna, plus a lift to all floors.

PRICE:
£289

Single Supplement £30
Includes all coach travel, evening meal bed and breakfast at Hotel, excursions and ticket on North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
