Jigsaw puzzle, walking, dancing and knitting holiday!

Glenthorne Conference Centre, Grasmere, Cumbria

Come and join me on this unique and wonderfully varied holiday!
My idea is that we enjoy 5 days together sharing the good things in life.
Doing jigsaw puzzles together; walking in the magnificent surroundings that only The Lake District can offer; Circle Dancing together in a lovely square room with a wooden floor; knitting or crocheting if that is what you like to do; chatting, enjoying each other’s company and eating the best sticky toffee puddings in the country!
You don’t have to do it all- you can just sit and jigsaw all day and night if that’s what you want!
I will bring the jigsaw puzzles and the dances (or you can bring some too).
There is an AMAZING jigsaw puzzle shop in Grasmere for you to stock up for the year- or bring a puzzle or two to swop.
How much?

in a standard single room (4 available) £378
in an en-suite single room £412

From Bach to the Balkans

with Mandy de Winter and Judy King at Wydale Hall, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Come and join Mandy and Judy on this wonderful course doing what they love and do best!
From Bach will be taught by Judy who simply loves dancing with her whole body and soul to classical music. There are many beautiful circle dances which have been choreographed to some stunning pieces of music. It won’t just be Bach- we will dance to music by Mozart, Vivaldi, Handel, Telemann ……. as well as to some ‘modern’ classical composers.
Most of the dances are gentle and relaxing with an occasional burst of higher energy! All the steps are simple and accessible - thus enabling you to fully engage with the deeply moving music.
….to the Balkans will be taught by Mandy whose love of Balkan music and dance is simply infectious. She has a unique way of imparting her knowledge of these
exciting and unique rhythms through her inspired choice of dances and when immersed in these dances, dances with the dust of the country on the soles of her feet. She will also lead us in a song or two.
The contrasting styles of music and dance coupled with Mandy and Judy’s complementary teaching styles will make this a very special way to spend the bank holiday.
Wydale Hall is a 17th Century country house set in 14 acres on the edge of the North York Moors National Park within a 15 minute drive of Scarborough or 30 minutes from Whitby.
The hall is very beautiful with plenty of natural light and with stunning views over the valley.
There are some beautiful flat lawns to encourage us to dance outside if the weather allows.
All accommodation is in single, twin or double very lovely en-suite rooms.
There are quiet spaces in the house if that is what you need; beautiful grounds to sit and walk in; rolling landscape to escape into.
The food is very good and special diets are well catered for.
NUMBERS: are limited to 24 with a minimum of 20 to make the course viable.
