Surf & Turf - 18th/19th July 2014 - SIGN UP

Post  Eddie990 on Fri Nov 29 2013, 14:00

First topic message reminder :

Sign up thread.

Due to the timing of Surf & Turf 2014 being a couple of weeks after the Tour de France Grand Departe accommodation is rapidly disappearing to the armies of lycra clad cycling enthusiasts sure to descend on the dales before and after the event.

On the plus side, it means that most of the really good roads have been/are being and will be resurfaced to be racetrack smooth and grippy as hell Very Happy 

The downside, looks like a 3 night minimum stay, even if we're only there for 2 and I'm going to need a deposit and firm commitment in the near future.

This year we'll be staying in Middleham, a major horse racing centre which used to be the capital of Wensleydale. I've negotiated a good price and provisionally booked a large self catering property called 'The School House' which is directly opposite Middleham Castle, home of Richard III.

There are no less than four pubs in Middleham – all of which serve food:

The White Swan is the foodie’s favourite.
The Black Swan attracts a mixed crowd, and sometimes offers live entertainment.
The Black Bull is a quirky, cosy local with a very good pint.
The Richard III is comfortable, family-friendly, and is building a reputation for its meals.

A short walk away along the bank of the river Cover is one of the best pubs in North Yorkshire, The Cover Bridge Inn, which has won many awards for it's beer and supplies excellent meals with portions large enough to sink a battleship. (Nick & Ellie, we'll be doing our best to make sure there's some Jaipur on tap for you guys  Wink )

Middleham also has a fish and chip takeaway, and a small Chinese restaurant and takeaway.

To make this work out as cheaply as possible for everybody we need at least 15 people for the weekend, that'll work out at £100pp for 3 nights!

So, if you could indicate below if you will be able to attend and whether you would like 2 or 3 nights so I can confirm numbers and book the venue that would be great.

Deposits need to be paid by the end of this month when I'll confirm the booking.

Come on folks, get your name down, we really do need a good turn out otherwise I'll lose the booking. It's a great weekend and the roads and scenery of the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District & North Yorks Moors are legendary.


Thanks,

Chris

Not at all Steve, I've been suffering with numbness in my hands and it's made worse when riding the bike so avoiding long rides etc, was really looking forward to it too :-(

As it stands there are 8 people staying in the hotel on Saturday night and 4 others either staying at mine or living locally. As previously mentioned there is an excellent Indian restaurant just across from the hotel, could I have a hands up as to who would like to go, and if most are in favour I'll book a table. ps hope I haven't missed anyone out. pps Robcat and Sir Digby said they might come just for the rideout, would you please inform me of your intentions. Thanks

The Indian is very good, but sorry Tes will have to bow out this time. Curry and a bike ride are not a good combination for Pam.

That's great Steve, I think the restaurant probably does non curry dishes anyway.

We shall be there still for the ride out as we have a babysitter booked till 7.

So depending on what time it is and where we are, we might have to leave the ride a tad premature.
