21 Jul Summer BBQ Weekend
21st to 23rd July
Summer BBQ Weekend, Hatton Country World, Dark Lane, Hatton, Warwick, CV35 8XA
A fun weekend of short driving tours and social meet ups, organised especially for our members, for more info contact Colin email@example.com
This weekend is a relaxed ”Do as much or as little as you want” weekend. I have recommended a suitable friendly hotel with everything we need, which will make a good base for non-campers and is the venue for our Friday evening meal. We explore Warwickshire on Saturday and have a BBQ on our field in Hatton Country World in the evening. This is a DIY affair and you need to bring all food and drink with you, and be prepared to cook it! Sunday is a day at Hatton Country world including a few daft driving tests in the cars if you feel so inclined. Depart and head for home whenever you wish, equally, stay on longer if you like…..
There is no charge to visit Hatton Shopping Village, just the Adventure Worldand Farm.
The shopping village has a garden centre and lots of crafty-gifty-type shops, plus a few select boutiques. There is a café for basic hot and cold food(sandwiches, tea, coffee, baked potatoes, etc.), along with a couple of coffee bars.
Discounted admission is available into Hatton Adventure World upon proof of club membership at Admissions.
Information about Hatton Country World can be found here:- www.hattonworld.com
There is camping on site at Hatton for campervans, Motorhomes and tents. The cost is £12 per unit per night.
Hotels – The main hotel for the weekend (for the non-campers) is the Warwickshire Park Hotel, Meer End Rd, Honiley, CV8 1NP (4.5 miles from Hatton Country World).
The Warwickshire Park Hotel is where we will be eating on Friday evening – the hotel will lay on an Italian-themed buffet, in a private room, with 4 different pizza’s being the core of the main course. The cost for this meal is £21 per person.
I have block-booked some double and twin rooms which cost £75 for Friday, £82 for Saturday and £62 for Sunday (if you want to stay on longer) – prices are all for double occupancy B&B.
There is plenty of off-road parking around the hotel for our cars.
