Yorkshire Dales to Manx Tales 2020
An expansion to our previous and successful Isle of Man Tour gives us a chance to explore the Yorkshire Dales before crossing over to the Isle of Man.
From our base in the well appointed Coniston Hall Hotel we have one run that explores the Dales and it’s beautiful scenery and the next day our run will take you a scenic route to Heynsham for the Isle of Man ferry and the run culminates at our hotel – the Comis Hotel and Golf Resort. This hotel is our original base Mount Murray hotel but completely refurbished and with new fittings and fixtures and was only fully opened earlier this year.
If you’ve not been to the Isle of Man before then it will probably come as a surprise to see how such a small piece of land can offer mountains and glens and tiny fishing villages together with country lanes that are a delight to drive without any speeding limit. Our TT run takes you around the full mountain circuit, starting off from the pits and ‘flagged off’.
As always we are restricting the tour group size to maintain usual social Backwater format.
Our run “Cream of the Dales” tested and tweaked which includes the Buttertubs Pass, Ribblehead Viaduct, Hawes, and other Dales villages with some typical “backwater’ discovered lanes not any ‘A’ roads and a very scenic run. Then another scenic run that starts at the Dales hotel finishes via a ferry crossing to finish at our Manx hotel for the Isle of Man leg.
Isle of Man:
We know the island well, and you have three runs one of which is the famous TT circuit and perhaps a Pit Stop Start. For those who have never visited the island newcomers are impressed the quaint seaside towns and glens and mountains, and no speed limit.
