Taking a break, the easy way

While many of our visitors like to work with us to create a bespoke trip, we also run a large number of events throughout the year that are fun and hassle-free.

We sort out the entertainment, activities, accommodation and catering – all you need to do is book your place and turn up!

You can also pick and choose how much you follow the itinerary. If you fancy a chilled day with a book rather than going on a particular excursion, just let us know. We’re very lucky to have amazing scenery and landmarks on the doorstep of each of our centres, so we’re the ideal base for exploring the local area or just soaking up the views.

We offer events for guiding members, Trefoil Guild members and the local community so there really is something for everyone.
