BORROWDALE, LAKE DISTRICT, 27 August - 1 September 2020

Due to cancellations, there is currently some availability on the Borrowdale trip over the August bank holiday weekend. The trip is definitely going ahead, and there will be both 'A' and 'B' walks.

If you are interested, please contact me asap. I need to finalise numbers with the hotel within the next few days.

Organiser Sonia


For the nights of Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd October 2020 the club has booked sole occupancy of the whole of Parcevall Hall, Skyreholme, Appletreewick, Skipton BD23 6DG, a country house built between 1586 and the early 20th century, listed as Grade II*, and currently the retreat house of the Anglican Diocese of Leeds (although our booking is for entirely secular purposes). Further information about, and photographs of, the Hall and its attractive gardens, can be found at

Accommodation There are 17 bedrooms: a mixture of single, twin, and double, all of which are available for sole occupancy. There is no supplement or discount relating to the room occupied or whether it is shared. Only four bedrooms are en suite, and they will be allocated to walk leaders, the event organiser, and anyone who convinces me as event organiser of their medical need for en suite facilities. Otherwise please indicate whether you wish for sole or shared occupancy of a bedroom (and if the latter, who you will be sharing with). This will be on the basis that although your room will have its own washbasin you will be sharing corridor bathroom and toilet facilities with occupiers of other bedrooms.

Cost The cost of dinner, bed and breakfast will be £71 per night, i.e. a total of £142 for the event, on the basis of arrival on Friday and departure on Sunday. If you wish to book either the Friday night or the Saturday night, without booking for the other, please discuss with me whether this will be possible (rather than send a deposit), because the club needs to fill all 17 bedrooms for both nights. If you wish to book any additional nights (dinner, bed and breakfast at £68 assuming that, unlike the Friday and Saturday, the evening meal will lack a soup course) you will need to book and pay for them directly with Parcevall Hall after I have allocated you a particular room. Although packed lunch is not included, members can book and pay for it directly at a cost of £7 per day, provided at least 5 days’ notice is given to the Hall.

Booking To secure a booking, please either complete a booking form and send it, with a deposit cheque of £60 per person payable to Footprints Walking Club, to the organiser, or (if you are paying by electronic transfer as per the details in the Newsletter) contact me giving your name, address, telephone number, any dietary needs, and the days you would like to stay for. Please let me know you have made the payment immediately after you have done so.

Walking There is likely to be a short walk on the Friday afternoon, a choice between an ‘A’ walk and a ‘B’ walk on the Saturday, and one or two walks on the Sunday.
