For the third year running the highly respected and professional Bridge breaks organisation, Stockenbridge Breaks, is returning to Gliffaes to run one of their popular bridge breaks.
“StockenBridge create and run very special, luxury bridge holidays in the UK and abroad. We successfully combine great locations, wonderful food, stimulating company and of course bridge!”
Zeb Stocken has many years experience of teaching and hosting bridge events, and whether you come as a group, in a pair or on your own, you can be certain of an instructive and enjoyable game adapted to your level. Claudia – Zeb’s sister – will be on hand to ensure the smooth running of your holiday and, as a keen and experienced bridge player herself, she will also be supervising bridge sessions. The bridge programme will be a mixture of teaching, supervised play and some duplicate – all played in a fun and friendly environment. The tuition sessions will use CompassCards (set deals) and a fun topic tailored to the group. All bridge sessions are optional and open to all standards of play, although we can only accommodate complete beginners if booked as a group of four. It is important to stress that our holidays are not aimed at the type of player who likes a serious 24-board duplicate every night. Our ethos is that bridge should be a friendly and social game where you can meet like-minded people, and our holidays reflect that. No partner is needed on a StockenBridge holiday
If you would like to find out more then please have a look at the Stockenbridge website. Here you will find out all the details and costs of this Bridge break. Please note that all bookings must be made via Stockenbridge and not through us at Gliffaes.
We are still unsure as to when we can re-open. I think it will be around the 24th May.
Gliffaes will not be open for outdoor dining only – I am afraid the numbers don’t stack up for us.
Mark Drakeford, The Welsh First Minister has given no definitive date for the opening of indoor hospitality in Wales.
This matter is further confused by the local elections on the 6th May. If Labour is returned to power he tells us that he will be minded to consider the opening of indoor hospitality on the 17th May and I guess he will give us about a week’s notice taking us to the 24th May.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
