Accommodation - Southwell

Here again there is very limited accommodation in Southwell itself and it will be better for everyone to make their own arrangements. The nearest town with a greater choice of accommodation is Newark upon Trent. Here again the Premier Inn would seem to the best location and currently (as at 16th August 2017) has Saver Rates of £54 room only.
Worcester - 17 - 18 February 2018

Accommodation - Worcester

There is a Travelodge across the road from the Cathedral or a little further away, but an easy walk is a Premier Inn.
Accommodation - Sherborne

Having carried out some research there are only limited places to stay in Sherborne itself. I therefore recommend that everyone makes their own arrangements. There is a greater choice of places to stay in nearby Yeovil which has a Premier Inn with current saver rates (as at 16th August 2017) of £32 on Friday, £47.50 on Saturday and £29.50 on Sunday. Car parking is 100 metres away and is payable £4 per day. I have also been advised that there is a Travelodge at Yeovil Podimore which is off the roundabout on the A303 and is 20 ,-25 minute drive from Sherborne.
Accommodation - Edinburgh July 2018

As per the Chairman's recent e-mail please click here for the Edinburgh Accommodation Survey.

If you don't want any booked for you, please complete the form anyway, so that we know not to chase you for an answer. Thank you for your co-opeeration.
