Gloucestershire Weekend in a Castle

06/02/2015 - 08/02/2015

Hi all

Would anyone like to join me for the weekend of 6th/7th/8th February in Gloucestershire staying at St Briavels Castle YHA? It looks amazing.

At the moment they have a room for a group of 6 people plus space in larger dorms but I’d rather get the group room. We would need to act quickly to get the room though! It would work out at about £20 per person per night (or slightly under with YHA discount). This YHA seems fully booked for months ahead so we would be lucky to get it at this short notice.

I would like to visit Nature in Art at Wallsworth Hall on the way there or back. They have the wildlife photographer of the year on till March.

This is NOT the Jumpstart weekend and I have checked with Kathy and it will not clash.

Please let me know as soon as possible – today or tomorrow!

All the best


Hi St Briavellers

Not to be any more indecisive I’ve gone ahead and booked St Briavels for the 6 bed room on the Friday and male/female dorm beds on the Saturday.

For 5 of us the total cost is £204. Individual costs £40.80 for the 2 nights. We can book breakfast at an extra cost of £4.99 each. They also do evening meals but I’ll check out nearby pubs.

Update 2:

Hi all

Here is the message from St Briavels…

Unless anyone says they don’t want to, I will book us all into the medieval banquet for Saturday evening. I’ll also book breakfasts at £5 per head per day.

Sarah i’m happy to pick you up on Friday at 5.30. We should get to the hostel by 8. I will provisionally book us into the pub for food at 8.30. If we look as though we won’t get there on time we can stop en route.

Would you all like to do the Sunday morning Castle tour?

Martin- what are your plans re lift or transport?

Looking forward to dressing up! I’ll check if we can take our own ale.


Update 3

Yep. It was amazing!

Very good and many thanks to Kate for organizing.
