The walking weekend takes place at a secluded 16th Century stone farmhouse in the heart of the Welsh countryside with breathtaking views over the Cambrian mountains. This popular retreat; exclusive to Oxford Social Walkers for the weekend, is the home of Breakaway Holidays, run by your hosts Barry and Sonya, who have been looking after walkers for over eighteen years. The cottage sits in its own eight acres of private grounds with large gardens, sculptures, wild life pools and a small menagerie of cats, dogs, sheep and birds. There are seven bedrooms which are a mixture of twins and trebles with shared facilities and Wi-Fi is available through BT Openzone/Fon. Lluest Fach is well known for its cosy atmosphere, homemade farmhouse food and friendly ambience. It is not licensed but you can, of course, take your own drinks. To find out more go to www.breakawayactivities.com


On arrival on Friday you'll be greeted by a welcoming log fire, tea/coffee and nibbles, and there will be a buffet supper of pizza, baked potatoes and salad served at 8.30pm. You'll soon be forgetting all about the stresses of city living. After a nice relaxing evening you’ll wake up on Saturday morning to a wonderful view and the smell of a traditional cooked breakfast before setting out to enjoy your walks into the countryside.

    The castle I was thinking of stopping at on the way is called Stokesay Castle (about 5 miles past Ludlow on the A49). Unfortunately it's English Heritage not national trust so I won't be visiting after all.

    Hi Everyone, I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend away. For those who would like to buy a Map, we will be using the Explorer series sheet 239 (Lake Vyrnwy).

    I will send my mobile number out nearer the time as a point of contact. Have a good Bank Holiday weekend. Ax

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
