For our festive barn weekend this year we visit the fabulous dales village of Grassington to coincide with the local Dickensian Festival in the village. Grassington Bunk Barn at almost 1000 feet altitude, with spectacular panoramic views of Wharfedale, is a magnificent spot, ideally situated for exploring Grassington & the Yorkshire Dales. It is rather plush too having been newly converted to a bunk barn in 2014 with a lot of thought put in to make our stay lovely.
Although primarily a social weekend (expect some partying!) there is also the opportunity to do those nice little teashop visits and relax amongst local Yorkshire Dales villages and of course the chance to get some rather lovely Christmas presents at the Dickensian Festival.
The great thing about these weekends is that you don’t have to go home after a long day out. If you’ve never been on a Spice weekend before give it a go -you might need a week to recover but everyone agrees it’s worth it. If you have been before you’ll know how popular they are!
Included in the weekend are one cooked breakfasts, one continental breakfast but with hot butties (help with cooking breakfasts and the cleaning up is as always very much welcomed) and a lovely festive buffet at the barn on the Saturday night. You will need to bring bedding with you; either a sleeping bag or a duvet, sheet and pillow.
Whether you’re a brand new member, an ‘old hat’ or one of the many that have been with us for a little while, and you like having fun with other like-minded Spice members then this really is a great weekend to book. It’s also a great starter weekend if you’ve not been away with us before - very laid back - you can do as much or as little as you choose; it’s your weekend away. But, be warned – our weekend breaks do sell really, really quickly so get those bookings in ASAP to avoid being disappointed.
