Mystical Northern England ‘Freedom’ Tour

We have all been through an extremely difficult time of uncertainty when many of us that have been in lockdown haven’t had the chance to meet up with friends or visit the countryside and our magnificent ancient sites,but know that restrictions  have begun to be eased I have thought of a way that we can do just this.

In this Freedom Tour I have put together five day tours with the option of staying at my house, where I will provide breakfast and a packed lunch.  I have three spare rooms and fold up bed in the living room so get in early to get a room.  If you are living in the area then obviously you will not need accommodation so the tour will be a different price.  For evening meals you are free to cook yourself a meal or we can grab a take away.
