Relaxed Traveller Holidays

If you prefer a more relaxed and leisurely pace of holiday, we are delighted to once again offer our suburb range of ‘Relaxed Traveller Holidays’. These holidays include a resort hotel in a great location and lunches on the outward and return journeys. Though not specifically aimed at those with mobility issues, the itineraries are certainly more relaxed and will involve less walking, but still include great sightseeing excursions where you can “Enjoy the views and treasure the memories!”




Extensive filming for the hugely successful TV programme “Downton Abbey” took place in the North East at Alnwick Castle, with recordings focused largely on the castle’s lavish State Rooms and castle exteriors.

Travelling to the north-east we pause for our included lunch en-route, arriving at our hotel during the afternoon.


This morning we head for the coast and South Shields, home of the late Catherine Cookson, continuing past Marsden Bay, Whitburn and Seaburn before turning inland across to the ancient and historic city of Durham, acclaimed as a World Heritage Site and dominated by the magnificent Norman Cathedral, high above the River Wear. We include a return shuttle bus transfer from the coach park and a Guided Tour of the Cathedral.


Today we head north, past Blyth and Ashington to Amble, Warkworth and Alnwick. Here we visit the historic castle and discover the Downton Abbey connection. Later we return south via Morpeth back to our hotel.


A free day at leisure to explore and enjoy Newcastle. Just a short stroll along the quayside from your hotel is the Millennium 'Winking Eye' bridge and Newcastle's famous Quayside. Enjoy a riverside stroll before maybe enjoying lunch in a quayside pub, or take a walk into the city centre for some retail therapy in Eldon Square Shopping Centre.


We commence our journey home which includes a stop for an included lunch, arriving back in the Midlands during the late afternoon.
