Threadbone Leisure / thrupiecetours Summer 2018 Packages Announced

THE FOLLOWING INFOMERCIAL IS A PAID FOR ADVERTISEMENT PLACED HERE BY THREADBONE LEISURE IN ASSOCIATION WITH thrupiecetours. neither endorses nor takes responsibility for products advertised in this way.

Even for the adventurous (as well as for 20-something young at hearts!) long haul travel can seem a daunting prospect and with so much to see and enjoy amidst the rich tapestry of geography and history which is our own lovely Dorset, most see little point in crossing borders, learning new customs and languages and gearing ourselves up for the unpleasantness which inevitably awaits us when undertaking risky "foreign travel". Indeed recent surveys suggest that only 2% of those born within the Dorset administrative county ever travel outside it; a figure which drops to 0.001% in the Great Heaving area (Mrs Threadbone and "entourage").

All this could be set to change, however, as Threadbone Leisure in association with thrupiecetours announce their exciting 2018 summer "Chillaxative Adventure Package" of programmes designed to take the stress, strain and uncertainty out of adventurous foreign travel.

The latest Threadbone Leisure/thrupiecetours  Brochure: packed with white-knuckle opportunities for those with the courage to seize them.

Top of this list - for those who want to plunge straight in at the deep-end is is a six day "Wonders of Wiltshire" maxi-tour. Based in the beautiful village of Lacock with accommodation at Crown Magna's magnificent ***** King Athelstan Hotel and Spa*, visitors can enjoy all the comforts of Dorset in the exotic climes of Wiltshire - a perfect synergy for those who like to take risks but prefer to do so safe in the presence of a protective safety net. As with other "intermediate" destinations, the "Wonders of Wiltshire" maxi-tour comes with appropriate Health and Safety as well as Dorset Ministry of Exterior Affairs Travel Advisory Warnings. Those joining the tour do so at their own risk, though fully trained Threadbone Leisure staff, translators and cultural advisors are virtually always on hand (ie on the worldwide interweb at the click of a button**).

* Accommodation in the Shelley-Lulette Sizemore Annex attracts a £50 per person per night supplement. Fridge Farms Breakfast Kefir available to order £5 extra pp.

** Charges apply

For those who prefer to "dip a toe in the shallow end" before taking a bigger plunge, Chilaxative Light destinations include: Croyde Bay, Saunton Sands and Braunton Burrows; whilst for those with a "devil may care" attitude to mortal danger, willing "to risk all for the white-knuckle tour of a lifetime", the Chilaxative Extra Packages will take them to: Rochdale, Broadbottom or Rawtenstall.
