Members’ Holiday

2nd to 6th September 2019

On Day four the visit will be to Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.


Chatsworth is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family.

Each year a short break holiday is arranged to an area not accessible on day trips for the purpose of visiting National Trust and other properties.  Travel is by coach hired for the exclusive use of the members on the holiday.

This year the holiday will be based at the Shrigley Hall Hotel and Spa near Macclesfield, visiting properties and sights in Cheshire and Derbyshire.

Leaving our pick-up point in Worthing, the coffee stop will be at Hughenden, one-time home of Disraeli.  Then on to Charlecote Park for lunch.

Quarry Bank Mill

On day two there is a visit to Quarry Bank Mill with the opportunity to see the living and working conditions of the time in the village and the mill.

There will be a diversion on the way back to the hotel for a photoshoot at Alderley Edge at the Wizard pub.

The holiday is for members of Worthing National Trust Association.  For further information

The Deer Park at Charlecote

Later, the coach journey passes through the historic countryside of Warwickshire and on to Macclesfield.

On day three there are two visits.

The first is to Dunham Massey, home to two great families, the Booths and the Greys.  Over 300 years of history are represented in the extensive collection at this property.  The stories of fortune, scandal and duty can still be felt across the Dunham Massey estate today.

The second visit is to Tatton Park.  This impressive 19th Century house hosts a number of valuable collections of books, Gillow furniture etc.

The house is renowned for the quality of its art, landscape and hospitality, and it has evolved through the centuries to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of succeeding generations.

On the return journey there will be a stop in Bakewell, perhaps to sample the local delicacy, a Bakewell Pudding.

En route home, there will be a coffee and lunch break at Baddesley Clinton, a secluded, intimate estate set in the heart of the Forest of Arden with 500 years of fascinating and unexpected stories.

The house was a sanctuary not only for the  family, but also for persecuted Catholics who were hidden from priest hunters in its secret hiding places during the 1590s.
