Bridge is fun!

24th to 27th August 2020

Cober Hill is managed by Trusts for the Rowntree Foundations, so there are certain restrictions and conditions you might not find in a commercial hotel. You can buy wine to have with your meals but there is no bar. Other than mealtimes, they are happy to supply glasses for guests' own drinks, so you are welcome to bring your own. I shall be bringing a stock of drinks with me so we don't miss out on the social half hour before dinner. If you have a favourite tipple, let me know what it is, so I can come prepared!

We have exclusive use of the Rowntree Centre, a purpose-built conference centre in the grounds of the original Victorian mansion which is the main hotel building. It has its own entrance and car park a few hundred yards from the main entrance on the Whitby road. The bedrooms are arranged on corridors around the bridge room, mainly on the ground floor, though there are some rooms on the second floor accessed by stairs. Some have baths and others have showers. There are also two disabled rooms with  wet rooms. The rooms all have tea/coffee making facilities, though many guests prefer to use the facilities in the small kitchen where there is a supply of "proper" milk! There are no telephones or televisions in the rooms, though there is a television in the lounge where we shall meet for drinks each evening. All meals are taken in the dining room in the main building a short walk from the Joseph Rowntree Centre. A wheelchair is available for anyone who has trouble walking. If all the bedrooms in the Joseph Rowntree Centre have been allocated, guests may be accommodated in the main hotel building.

Breakfast is a buffet, lunch is two set courses, and dinner is three courses with a choice of menu.

Because of the Trust, Cober Hill has to charge a non-refundable deposit of £57.50 per person They also have stringent cancellation charges:

Up to 16 weeks ......................................Deposit only

There is no cancellation charge for the bridge element of the holiday (£55) or if a replacement is found.
