Smashing idea!

Driving some great roads, followed by hot tub and bubbles, in smashing company…

And the 'room service' should make for some interesting footage from that shower camera... ;)

The Welsh Marches (Herefordshire/Shropshire) are a good base. Plenty of great B roads and those of mid Wales are in easy reach.

Yorkshire Dales is another decent shout but not quite so many roads on offer. That said, the NYM and North Pennines are not that far away.

Ingleton -> Hawes -> Thwaite is a must do for any proper petrolhead. As is a visit to Britain's highest pub.

What do people think to the last two links I put? The last link looks like a cool place. Im not very knowledgeable of that area but they're both a lot more mid country.

I like the idea of a bit of upper class living in the OC. Camping is great fun and all, but I do like a warm bed and dry clothes in the morning!

I know of a few places around the south west, and we do have some pretty under-rated roads, it might open your guys eyes as far as no banjos or lynchings going on in the westcountry*.

I'm game fruit a Cotswolds or Wales run too, it sounds good.


*banjos/lynchings may happen in Cornwall

Look great! I think if we look at it as however the number of bedrooms, stick a couple in it then divide the weekend rate to give us a rate per couple for the weekend.

eg - that last one - £2300 3-night weekend booking - 8 bedrooms equal £96 per night per room. Pretty reasonable, given the luxury :)

Tan Hill Inn is a must visit for sure.

As is a stop for a big cone of the best ice cream in the country: http://www.brymordairy.co.uk/

We just need an idea of numbers :)

As despite that last link sleeping 24 it is in 8 bedrooms with some extra beds on mezzanine floors. So it'd depend on numbers and who was actually going.
If too many then that other link for this one is for a larger place

Image

Obviously we have no confirmed dates etc and I work shift work so not as flexible on dates as some others may be but I will put my name on interested list as we need an idea of numbers/how many bedrooms we need.

I am in and no doubt Sasha would be also pending dates and cost. I have a question; is this a driving holiday or a get together and drink holiday?
I ask cause it seems like a lot are wanting to party and also enjoy the roads, cannot do both.
I've no doubt that we can cook up some mass meals, I make a mean chilli ;)

If it's a three night break then a run can be had before then enjoying drinks, food, facilities etc. As long as its planned out properly I can't see any problems with us doing both as long as a run is done before a heavy night.
