The Best of Tyne & Wear - 5 Days

The Best of Tyne & Wear - 5 Days

Catherine Cookson Country, Beamish Open Air Museum, Cragside House & Gardens, Skipton, Hawes & Richmond

Sunday Day 1: After our pick-ups are complete we travel with comfort stops to Skipton for our lunch break. Situated in the Aire gap separating the Craven limestone Dales to the north, the gritstone moors to the south, and the pastoral Ribble valley to the west. Just outside the Yorkshire Dales National Park boundary, Skipton prides itself on being 'The Gateway to the Dales'. Leaving after lunch we travel through Yorkshire to our home for the next 4 nights, the  Best Western Roker Hotel, with time to relax before your evening meal.

Monday Day 2: Today is spent at the Beamish open air museum, where the past comes to life. Beamish is unique. It's no ordinary museum but a living, working experience of life as it was in the Great North in the early 1800s and 1900s. Set in over 300 acres of beautiful countryside. Winner of both the British Museum of the Year and European Museum of the Year Awards, it demonstrates the recent history of the region in a "living" way and provides entertainment and education for visitors of all ages and interests.

Tuesday Day 3: Cragside House and Gardens was originally built as a modest lodge on a rocky hillside in 1863, the world's first home to be lit using hydroelectric power subsequently transformed into the Free Tudor mansion you'll encounter today. Start your tour in the house, which showcases a large collection of fine art and opulent furnishings. Head out to the gardens, where you'll find a hedgerow labyrinth and the world's largest rock garden. Check out the on-site shop for high-quality souvenirs, such as handcrafted pottery and local foods.

Wednesday Day 4: We meet our guide for a tour by coach of Catherine Cookson country. Dame Catherine (Ann) Cookson, nee McMullen was born on the 20th June 1906. She went on to write more than 90 novels, many are based on the North East of England. We then travel to Newcastle upon Tyne, where you will see such icons as the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, Tyne Bridge, the Sage Gateshead and the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art.

Thursday Day 5: We start our journey home and stop for a coffee break in Richmond in the heart of North Yorkshire. This is an historic market town, with a Norman castle. We leave Richmond and make or way through the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park to Hawes for lunch at the Wensleydale Creamery. Here is the home of the famous Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese. Enjoy free cheese tasting of over 20 varieties, and find mouth-watering accompaniments. Leaving after lunch we pass the Ribblehead Viaduct before re-joining the motorway taking us back home to Mid-Wales.

  Just a short note to thank you for a wonderful tour of the Majestic Scottish Highlands. Two words - Magnificent and Dramatic. A big thank you for driving us safely and making the travelling comfortable as well as amusing and interesting. Thank you for acquiring good rooms of our choice in the 3 lovely hotels. It means a lot!  
Mr & Mrs Mills
  We wanted to thank you for a really great holiday to Northumberland. The coach was very comfortable and brilliantly driven. Dave was a great courier, entertaining us on route. The hotel was very good and in a great location. The days out were informative and the countryside beautiful. It was our first trip with you and we hope it will not be the last.  
Jen & Pete
  Just felt we had to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had on the Danube Cruise. We enjoyed it very much, everything was nice and so very well organised.  
  Once again an outstanding tour to the Tattoo - could not fault a thing. The trips out were great with lovely extras!  
Mrs Lawrence
