Belmond British Pullman Experience to Dunster Castle

Cornwall Hospice Care is pleased to be able to offer a once in a lifetime experience aboard the Belmond British Pullman luxury vintage train on a journey to the stunning country home and subtropical gardens of ancient Dunster Castle.

We invite you to step on board the Belmond British Pullman, sister train to the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, and experience the excitement of luxury train travel. From the moment you join us, you are transported to a world of pure indulgence. Take a seat in the vintage carriages that once ran on legendary 1920s services such as The Brighton Belle and The Golden Arrow. Glide through stunning scenery as champagne flows and gourmet cuisine is served. Expect glamour, fun and a dash of adventure.

Is it for me?

Yes! This day experience captures the wonders of train travel at the height of its success. Brunch is served on the outward journey to Somerset, before guest can choose between visiting Dunster Castle or taking in a steam experience along the West Somerset Railway. Champagne and canapes await your return to the Pullman for the journey home, followed by a sumptuous four course dinner with wine.

What Happens Next?

You can expect an experience like no other when travelling on the British Pullman with Cornwall Hospice Care.

1. Call us today to book your place on 01726 66868 (option 3). A £95 deposit will be taken for each guest booking made.

2. You’ll get a confirmation letter shortly afterwards.

3. We’ll be in touch in late February early March for the outstanding balance on each ticket (£300 for each guest).

4. One week prior to departure you’ll receive your ticket as well as confirmation of departure time.

5. Finally, enjoy the day! We’ll have two representatives on board to ensure your day out is perfect.

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get to the 12th of March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.

For every ticket sold we could pay for four hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.

Great Wall of China Trek

Great Wall of China Trek

“You have not lived if you have not been to the Great Wall”, or so the Chinese saying goes, and its not surprising why! The Great Wall of China has been voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Stretching for 6,000km, it zig zags its way across China, snaking across mountains and through valleys.

One of the best charity treks. the Great Wall of China trek takes you through the mountains, over watch towers, historic battlement stations that are well off the tourist trail. The Great Wall provides a fantastic backdrop to some fantastic trekking.

The most amazing of fundraising events also enables us to ‘lend a hand’ by repairing a section of the Wall that is currently being reconstructed. All trekkers will place a brick in the newly restored section of the wall, ensuring our own place in the Great Wall of China.

 

Can you do it? Yes you can!

A good level of fitness is required for this trek and training is advised. Trekking on the Great Wall of China is hard due to the amount of steps each day – it can sometimes take an hour just to trek 1km!
