Midweek Break 29 Sept – 1 Oct 2020
As announced at the Probus meeting last week, next year’s break will be based at The Mytton and Mermaid Hotel, Atcham, Nr Shrewsbury. The hotel, a grade 2 listed property, is in a delightful position between the River Severn and Attingham Park (National Trust).
The hotel can accommodate 36 people but if our group exceeds that, it will not be a problem as there is alternative accommodation at The Holiday Inn, just 2 miles down the road towards the centre of Shrewsbury or at The Corbet Arms, Uffington, just 3 miles up the road.
The hotel has an attractive bar area as shown below and a good range of bedrooms including 2 single rooms, the rest being either twin or double.
Shrewsbury, just 3 miles away, is a lovely town and there is a regular bus service to the town centre from outside of the hotel.
All rooms in the hotel have been held for our group so if you want to come, put the dates in your diary now. The cost of the break for B & B the first night and 3 course D, B & B the second night in a lovely function room which can easily accommodate up to 45 or so people will be between £110 and £125 per person depending upon whether you want a standard or one of the 3 superior rooms. If you really wish to ‘push the boat out’, two more luxurious double rooms are available at a cost which will work out at about £160 per person for the break. You can see pictures of many of the bedrooms in the main house here. The courtyard rooms are ideal for those people who would prefer accommodation on the ground floor.
I shall leave the matter of how rooms are allocated until the New Year. 42 people came on the break to Ironbridge this year; it would be great to have a similar number or more next year!
