8 day Dorset Encounter Group
January 28, 2017 - February 05, 2017
Dorset | Approx £250
The Dorset group has run for a few years now and is held on a farm where we have the sole use of their 4 cottages (http://www.newfieldholidaysdorset.co.uk/
The 2017 group will run over 8 days, Saturday 28th January-Sunday Feb 5th 2017
. It is possible that there will be an additional week, a second group, which would run before the week outlined above, if there is sufficient interest.
The cottages afford a range of accommodation from bunk to en-suite double rooms. There is one single room, two bunk rooms, three twin rooms, three doubles and a cottage for sole occupancy (though it can be shared). The ethos has been around having the opportunity to meet in such a way and for it not to be cost prohibitive; sharing helps to keep the cost down.
If people are willing to share, the second person pays 50% of the normal room rate.
We are looking at the cost of an 8-night
stay being around £250. However this price is based on 8 rooms being occupied as no one wanted the bunk rooms last year. If we get takers for the bunk room this year, the price would be reduced accordingly and the 8 day stay would cost around £200.
The catering has traditionally been self -catering and often people will register what they are cooking (usually something quick and easy!) and invite others to join; costs are then shared. This has been a very popular and enjoyable part of the experience overall.
A £50 deposit is required to secure a place and the balance can be paid by card, bank transfer or monthly direct debit; 4 monthly payments.
I hope this is helpful, but feel free to email us if you have further questions and either myself or Dave will get back to you.
Kind regards and we look forward to hearing from you
Teri and Dave
