Somerset Area

Walk with us in Somersetshire

Area Holiday 2018

Dear members,

We are pleased to invite you to join us from Friday 5 October to Monday 8 October 2018 for the Somerset Area Walking Weekend 2018 in Gwbert, Cardigan, Ceredigion.

This year we will stay at The Cliff Hotel and Spa in Gwbert, which is located on the coastline, with panoramic views over Cardigan Bay and the Pembrokeshire coast.

For the golf players amongst us, included in the extensive grounds of the hotel, is a 9 hole golf course (£5.00 green fee).

A footpath will lead you to the beach, whilst the hotel has a spa and a small gym (free).


The 3 nights’ stay including dinner, bed and breakfast, will this year be £195.00 per person, sharing a twin or a   double room.

For a single room, there is a supplement of £15.00 per person per night.

NB: The hotel does not have single rooms, but the small(er) twin or double rooms are used as singles.

A triple room (3 bedded) is £165.00 per person.

Additional mid-week nights can be added to your booking at a cost of £55.00 per night, with a £10.00 supplement for a single room.

Many of us may benefit from being allocated a room with a sea view.

However, if you wish the guarantee of a sea view, the supplement of £10.00 per room per night is required.


We hope to keep to the usual format of 3 walks on each of the 4 days in the beautiful countryside of Cardigan and along its stunning coastline.

We look forward to hearing from members who are willing to lead walks, in particular those who are prepared to lead the short walks.

Please note: whilst we are exploring every possibility to get leaders for short walks, it is becoming more and more difficult to recruit volunteers who are prepared to lead them.

If we are not successful, the short walks – as a last resort – will have to be self-led.

For this weekend, as usual, Les will be in charge of the walks and Chris will look after the social activities, which will include a 60/70s disco.

To secure your place, please send a deposit of £30.00 per person to reach us before 31 December 2017.

Please complete the attached form and either mail it to Peggy Fortunati at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or send it by post to Peggy Fortunati, Seabreeze, Grove Road, Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset TA8 2HF.

Details of the hotel can be found at

We hope that you will join us at Gwbert.

The organising team,

Rod, Peggy, Les and Chris
