Yorkshire by Steam
12/May
Susan Osborn
5 stars
“Loved visiting a part of Yorkshire I'd not been to before. We had a lovely tour guide (Tracey) and the Cedar Court Hotel in Harrogate was an excellent base. However, the first of our two steam train journeys was only diesel because, we were told, it wasn't the summer season. The train went through The Railway Children film location of Oakworth, but sadly we were not able to get off to have a proper look. Our trip to Whitby was also very rushed, and we were barely able to spend two hours there before heading off on the 2nd steam train journey to Pickering, where we'd been promised some time to look around, but sadly that wasn't able to happen as there was no time left before heading back to the hotel on the coach. I think the itinerary for this day in particular should be modified. Our day trip to York was perfect though, as was the trip to Haworth, where the Bronte family lived.

“Norwich is a lovely City to spend Christmas,hotel was pleasant although not in the most salubrious area unless your a football fan.All the staff were very helpful and friendly, food was very good with plenty of choice,even for a vegetarian !! Ken our holiday guide was excellent doing his best to please quite a large party. I wouldn't consider another rail discoveries holiday at that time of year due to the over crowding ( not your fault) of the trains. Mary Baynes

Cotswolds & The Severn Valley

Chris Marchant
5 stars
“A wonderfully organised and led trip. The train rides in the Forest of Dean and on the Warwickshire and Gloucestershire Railway were brilliant and the tour of Worcester was so informative with a lovely guide. The hotel staff were all brilliant at the White House. The only slight downer was the cuisine. The vegetables were tasteless. Maybe this was down to the Brexit driven shortages both of staff and fresh produce.

“We loved the island but were disappointed that some of the tourist attractions - the Laxey Wheel and the horse drawn tram- were not functioning, otherwise we would have given it a 5star rating! We would like to go back when they are open

ROBERT GOULD
4 stars
“The accommodation was fair to good. The food, dining and restaurant service was very good. It was a shame that the TV in the was not working and that it took 4 days to get the areiel fixed by an outside contractor. When staff were informed more than once they did nothing except to suggest it was a fault with the mast and outside their control which it was not!
