Trip to Vannes in Brittany, France
It’s full, but if you want details or to go on a reserve list please contact Andy Graves

I’m considering a trip to Brittany in September and I’ve contacted Brittany Ferries for a price.
They’ve extended the 20% discount period until the 13th.Feb.
The trip would be from Plymouth on September 6th. returning to Plymouth on the 10th.
The discounted cost comes out as £445.30 for 3 nights in Vannes staying at the Quality Hotel la Marébaudiere. This includes the ferry crossing in a Pont-Aven Club4 cabin on the way out, your car, two people and B&B in the hotel. Parking is private and free at this hotel. The cost can be reduced by opting for an inside cabin on the Pont-Aven.
The return is a day crossing on the Amorique so a cabin hasn’t been factored in
The cost for a single is £411.90, although by using an inside 2-berth cabin it’ll be cheaper.
If you are interested please contact me by Monday 12th. to qualify for the 20% discount. I’ll then make provisional bookings for you to confirm.  Bookings after 13th. February will not be discountable.

22nd-24th March 2019 Practical Classics - Classic Car & Restoration Show with Discovery at the NEC Birmingham
Tuesday 14th to Friday 17th May 2019

Area 9 are pleased to announce preliminary details of our 2019 Tour.

The 2019 Tour will be based at The Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and Spa in Powys, Wales
Dates – Tuesday 14th to Friday 17th May 2019

Provisional booking for ten rooms have been made under Panther Area 9 – Elwyn Thomas

Details of the Vyrnwy Explorer  package are below-

  • Three nights of country house elegance
  • Three spectacular welsh breakfasts
  • Dinner in the award-winning Tower Restaurant on one evening
  • Dinner in the delicious Tavern Brasserie on another evening
  • Enjoy strawberries & cream with a glass of Prosecco on one afternoon
  • Go exploring to one of our chosen attractions
  • Take a complimentary packed lunch with you on your day out


Garden View: £498 (13 available)
Lake View: £558 (11 available)
Premier Lake View: £648 (6 available)

Rooms are to be booked directly with the hotel. But please confirm with me that you have done so. You can see that there is limited availability of the Premier Lake View rooms. First come, first served.  The Lake View rooms are very nice also. I have stayed in one of the Garden View Rooms, nice and comfortable missing only the view of the lake.

Take a tour of the hotel here

We would suggest that we take the Tavern Brasserie on the Tuesday evening and the Tower Restaurant on the Thursday evening for our farewell dinner.

This leaves Wednesday evening free. Our proposal is we have a full day out to Portmeirion Italianate Village, taking a two course lunch at Castell Deudraeth which gives us good parking, complimentary mini-bus to the village and free entry.

This would be less expensive than paying for entry and buying lunch at the village and parking amongst other visitors. ( I know how precious our Panthers are to us)

Sample lunch menus and details of the Castle can be found here.

A provisional booking has been made for lunch.

We will take a scenic route to and from Portmeirion and aim to be back at our base by early evening.

There will be plenty of free time Tuesday and Thursday to enjoy the Spa and Hotel facilities. The walk around the lake is level and quite spectacular. For the petrol heads there are plenty of superb driving roads.

We do hope that you can join us .
