Your Holiday Centre
Cheshire is a county in northwest England, known for its rural villages of half-timbered and local red sandstone buildings and for its Industrial Revolution heritage, with links to neighbouring Manchester and Liverpool.
Its county seat is Chester, founded as a Roman fort in the first century A.D. and home to Roman walls and a cathedral displaying 1,000 years of architectural history. Chester is arguably the richest city in Britain for archaeological and architectural treasures preserved to this day from the time of the Roman occupation.
But throughout its chequered history, the Roman walls remained virtually intact. The walls extend in a 2 mile circuit and give a vivid reminder of what a medieval fortified town was like. In the middle Ages, several towers and gates to the walls were made: the most important of these was at Eastgate, now astride a main thoroughfare and crowned with an anachronistic clock commemorating Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee (1897).
The most distinctive medieval feature of the city is The Rows. These are double-level walkways with a continuous line of balconies and with shops at street and first-floor levels. The Rows are unique and were certainly in existence in the 14th century.

Day 1: Depart Local Area
After boarding our luxury coach, your holiday has now started. We start our journey by travelling to North Wales, with comfort stops en-route. Our Lunchtime stop will take us to the welsh town of Llangollen, where there are plenty of places to eat or maybe that do that last minute shopping. After lunch we continue our journey to the Llyndir Hall hotel. Don't worry about your luggage, they will look after it for you and have it delivered to your comfortable room. On arrival take the chill off by enjoying a glass of mulled wine and partake in tea and mouth-watering homemade cake in the lobby and lounge areas. Time for unpacking and relax before we join the management for a drink's reception before dinner, followed by organised fun & games.
Day 2: Abbeycwmhir House
Today we take the short drive to Abbeycwmhir House, (Included) one of Wales' most outstanding Victorian homes. The grade II listed building overlooks the ruins of the 12th Century Cistercian 'Abbey of the Long Valley' set in the beautiful Welsh countryside. Each of the 52 rooms are beautifully decorated, all individually styled, and all hold collectable items. These antique and vintage items all complement the different and unique rooms, from phonographs and radios to railway memorabilia and paintings. You can have a peaceful stroll around the gardens (weather permitting) which consist of a walled garden, lake and boathouse, waterfall and many courtyards. Make sure you look out for the gypsy caravan, shepherds hut, a row of beach huts and a vintage caravan lying among the gardens. You are free to look around at your own pace. We then return to the hotel to relax before dinner.
Enjoy your breakfast. Have a leisurely morning before their 5 course Christmas Lunch which is legendary, and you will be uncomfortably full by the time of the Queens speech at 3pm. The rest of the afternoon is for you to relax, play games, go for a walk or probably have a contented snooze. This evening they serve their traditional yuletide buffet of festive favourites. Evening entertainment.
Day 4: Cheshire Oaks
We will spend the morning exploring Cheshire Oaks for those after Christmas bargains. Where do the North West’s fashion lovers get their designer fix? McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks, the UK's largest outlet shopping destination. Indulge in 145 luxury and high street brands, including must have British labels Burberry, Superdry and All Saints - all at up to 60% less and with tax-free shopping available. We return for an early buffet lunch, and then it's off to the Pantomime. You will have a great time, and return with a smile. The hotel pulls all the stops out for their annual, farewell gala dinner followed by entertainment.
Day 5: Depart for Home
After another wonderful breakfast and cases have been loaded on to the coach. It is time to wave goodbye to our hosts at the Llyndir Hall hotel and head for home. There will be comfort stops en-route, and you should be back in your local area by late afternoon.
Your tour manager and driver will do their professional best to ensure that you enjoy this tour. It will be at their discretion to rearrange the itinerary to better the tour for your comfort.
