Tregaron onto Devils Bridge with a lunch stop at either dependent on progress.
From Devils Bridge we will take the Elan Valley Road and finish in Rhayder.
We have stayed at the Lake House many, many years ago and remember the Hotel as being slightly quirky but of a good standard. Trip advisor reports look very positive.
We have arranged a Dinner, bed and breakfast tariff of £225.00 per couple per room for the Club and if you are interested if you could let me know ASAP so that numbers can be established, you can then book your room directly with the Hotel at the rate mentioned. The hotel has a swimming pool and spa, 50 plus acres of
grounds and is dog friendly as long as they don’t want to use the spa!
Looking forward to a good fun weekend for likeminded Classic car and countryside enthusiasts!
