Weekend Away: North Lancashire Coast (based in Morecambe)

Location: Based at The Clarendon Hotel
Marine Road West
Morecambe
Postcode: LA4 4EP (Google map)

In October 2015 we had a splendid autumn weekend based in Morecambe. So we will return there in 2018 for an autumn two- or three-night break, arriving on Friday 28 September and departing on Sunday 30 September or Monday 01 October. We will stay at the Clarendon Hotel on the seafront.

The Morecambe Bay area includes pools, marshes, mudflats and coastal areas with a good range of resident and wintering birds. Wildfowl and waders should be plentiful and the whole area has a reputation for rarities popping up on a regular basis. As well as Morecambe itself, likely places which we will visit are Leighton Moss, Warton Crag, Hest Bank, Heysham, Conder Green, Glasson Dock and perhaps Pilling Lane Ends.

The cost for dinner, bed & breakfast for two or three nights will be £65 per person per night sharing a double/twin room and £70 per night single. All rooms are en-suite and come with the usual facilities including tea/coffee-making equipment. If you want extra nights, they can be booked at the same rates subject to availability.
If you wish to reserve a place, please advise Graham Palmer, 8 Rydal Place, Macclesfield, SK11 7XU (tel. 01625 420179, e-mail graham@macclesfieldrspb.org.uk) as soon as possible. Strictly speaking, bookings have already closed, but it is very likely that we can still get you a place. A deposit of £40 per person will be required at the time of booking (cheques payable to "Provincial Hotels & Inns"). You will pay the balance direct to the hotel at the end of your stay. You can find details of the hotel at www.clarendonhotelmorecambe.com, but please do NOT book via that website.

Time: 7 pm

Price: £65.00 pp per night (Shared double/twin) £70.00 pp per night (Single)
