News Update February 2018


Wishing you a belated Happy New Year with lots of enjoyable Scottish dancing.

The autumn 2017 holidays at Willersley Castle Matlock and the Cumbria Grand Hotel Grange over Sands were very successful with about 50 on each.  Unfortunately we had to cancel the Symonds Yat holiday in October (the first holiday we have ever cancelled) for a variety of reasons.  In 2017 we welcomed many repeat guests plus several new ones many due to personal recommendation and also from our website.  These were from a very wide area from the Isle of Skye to Canterbury, Inverness to the Isle of Wight and Pembrokeshire to Kings Lynn as well as from Toronto New Zealand Netherlands Germany and France.

Bookings for all the 2018 holidays are going well with over 200 received so far with most locations sold out for single rooms.  The situation at the time of writing is as follows.


Craiglands Hotel Ilkley   19-23 March   Limited twin double and single rooms available

Victoria Hotel Torquay   16-20 April
    Limited twin and double rooms available

Queens Hotel Llandudno   24-28 September
  Fully booked for all types of room

The Abbey Hotel Great Malvern 7-11 October  
Double and twin rooms available

Cober Hill Scarborough 12-16 November  
Single double and twin rooms available

If you haven’t yet booked for this year you are advised to book as soon as possible.  We do not request a deposit but do expect a commitment to pay the full amount one calendar month prior to the start of the holiday due to our commitment we have with the hotels.

You can fill in a booking form using our website following the links or you can download a booking form and send it in by post.

scottish dancing and walking holidays in torquay

Our recent Torquay holiday was fun and successful. 

We welcomed several new guests along with many regular friends to the Victoria Hotel. 

evening entertainment on scottish country dancing and walking holidays

Once again Geoff taught a number of interested and unusual dances each morning and led some very successful evening sessions.

We also had use of other facilities, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, bowls and snooker, which many guests enjoyed.

Several of us went walking either for the day or in the afternoon along picturesque coastal paths and enjoyed a visit to Cockington Country Park with its beautiful gardens and craft workshops. We would hope to revisit this hotel with its great facilities in the next few years.
