It is proposed that next year we return to Dordrecht, Holland. We would use the overnight ferry from Harwich to Hook of Holland, staying in Dordrecht for 5 nights. Members would also be able to make their own alternative travel arrangements; partners (riding or non riding) would be welcome.
This year we had 35 participants and 4 riding groups; A, B1, B2 and C (who had a great times combining shorter rides with train, boat trips and site-seeing). The cycleways in Holland are unbelievably good, safe, well signposted with neither traffic nor hills!
We enjoyed a good meal on the ferry in both directions; the restaurant was both pleasant and clean – as were the cabins.
The hotel was basic but clean with very pleasant staff. The rooms contained two single beds and a pair of bunk beds. Some people shared, others had a room to themselves. The hotel was great value for money; staying half board helped keep down the cost of the trip.
This year the rooms were £321 pp single occupancy and £252 pp double occupancy for 5 nights including food!
The ferry cost somewhere between £170 to £220 return which included cabin, excellent evening meal and breakfast.
