Day 1

Depart from your home area in the morning travelling to the North East and arriving late afternoon at the Best Western Derwent Manor. Four nights stay - dinner, bed & breakfast.

Day 2

Our first excursion takes us South through the Pennines countryside to Stanhope. Here we take a short break before heading west along Weardale to Alston. Here we have time for lunch and we enjoy a ride on the South Tynedale Railway. Trains leave from Alston’s restored Victorian station for a delightful ride along the beautiful South Tyne Valley. Leaving here we head across the moors to Hexham, with its historic Abbey, and we take a break here with time for a look around before we head back to the hotel.

Day 3

Morpeth is our first destination today where it is Market Day! We have time to explore the town, browse the market stalls and obtain lunch before we are on our way across the picturesque Northumbrian countryside to Bellingham and Kielder Water. Here we enjoy a cruise around the lake before returning through Hadrian’s Wall country on the way to the hotel.

Day 4

This morning we travel to the ancient and historic city of Durham, acclaimed as a World Heritage Site and dominated by the magnificent Norman Cathedral and Castle. We have time to explore
and obtain lunch before our afternoon visit to Barnard Castle and Bowes Museum, just outside the town. Housed in a majestic Frenchstyle chateau, the Museum opened in 1892 and will amaze you with its superb collection, including the famous Silver Swan.
