Goat Level 2

This winter revival was a hit last year so we offer it again. In the words of a guest … “What inspired me to do this trip was the BBC4 Series Winter Walks and because I've been on several WW holidays in the past. BBC Radio host, Nihal Arthanayake explored the area starting in Arnside. The coast and countryside were lovely and it didn't disappoint. It's been so long since I've seen the coast and the views were beautiful. This was as good as any WW holiday I've been on (and I've been on many). Well done.”
