Paul (MC) let me know yesterday that he has booked the last week in June (23rd to 28th) so I had a look this morning and booked from the 22nd till 27th at the Silverdale Hotel.
There is plenty of notice (it gives me time to get my jabs) if anyone else wants to visit Leighton Moss at the same time.

Would be great if more forumates could make it north to L. Moss. Mike and I might be able to join if I can get good enough rates at our usual haunt !! but will have to wait nearer the time to get the best deals. Remember, they do a better breakfast than Dearne Valley lol (with mushrooms) !!!

In reply to HAZY:
Ooooh that sounds interesting. Now if I can get dog-sitters then you might be on.
Post edit for accommodation where do I look?
Lot to learn
In reply to gaynorsl:
Alan and I are booked into the Silverdale Hotel (pub) and Hazy always stays at Pine Lakes, which is self catering and just a short drive away. I'm sure she will provide more info once she reads this ☺

We are going to Northumbria for a week (Seahouses, Farne Isles) on June 1st but will be back in time for the dates Paul and Alan have arranged, all depends on accommodation and timings !
I will try my best to get up I am away to Seahouses on the 2nd June for two weeks so will only have five days to get ready for LM so will have to wait till nearer the date before I can definitely say yes.
In reply to James:
Thanks very much MC and Hazy, I have just been looking up the area and it all looks very nice and would be happy if you can get any reasonable prices later on Hazy, I would be travelling up on the train so could be difficult. Maybe a B&B would be better, I'll keep looking.
LM is only 10 miles from Lancaster so not far away, there are a lot of B&Bs in the area because I was looking just in case were I stay is full I will look nearer the date to get prices, and LM is only 989ft from Silverdale Station.
That sounds promising James, I think a B&B might suit me more, especially the purse!!
Challan Hall with Charlotte and Mike is a recommendable...
