Nothing beats enjoying the glorious scenery of Britain, we can all attest to that, but there’s something magical about journeying by train.
Our latest tale comes from Sari Dell, HF Holidays’ Direct Sales & Marketing Manager who went on our best selling Great Little Trains of Wales holiday. Here is her tale.
Where, and when, did you go on your first HF Holiday?
Nordic Walking in Abingworth approx 6 yrs ago
Where did you go on your latest HF Holiday?
Country House Escape at Malhamdale in Nov 2014
Your tale from the boot room…Where and when did you go?
Dolgellau in July 2011
What holiday were you on?
Great Little Trains of Wales
Who did you go with?
My elderly parents, my dad worked for Finnish Railways all his working life up to retirement
Any particular highlights?
- Ffestiniog with its dramatic scenery and spiral curve at Dduallt
- The eecently re-opened Welsh Highland Railway which passes through dramatic scenery with views of Snowdon through to Caernarfon
- My absolute favourite highlight was having a little tea party with Welsh tea cakes in an engine shed with the volunteer railway “workers” surrounded by steam engines
The contagious enthusiasm. I booked the holiday mainly for my dad and his love of the steam era, expecting mum and me just to tag along enjoying the scenery, but found myself caught up in the excitement, running along the platform taking pictures of all possible engines.
Thank you Sari for this wonderful tale, we’re delighted you had a good time!
