Join seasoned Halsway Walking Guide Roger Phipps for a weekend of exploration across the Quantock Hills and West Somerset Countryside and Coast. Plus, for Americana fans, there’s the added bonus of music and dance in the evenings from participants on the New England music for dancing group.
Halsway Manor is situated in the heart of the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with direct footpath access to open moorland and views to the Brendon Hills and Exmoor and endless opportunities for varied walking in stunning, unspoiled landscapes.
On the Saturday and Sunday there will be full days walks of around 6-8 miles each day. Packed lunched will be provided for the day with evening dinners back in the Manor.
In the evenings there will be plenty to entertain you as this walking weekend runs alongside the musicians weekend New England Music to Lift Dancers’ Feet. Members of the walking group will be welcomed to join in and listen (or bring instruments and play) in the bar session on Friday night, and to join the concert and American folk dance night on Saturday night – so bring your dancing shoes as well as your walking boots!
Who’s it For?
