Upper Teesdale is a plant-lover’s paradise. The North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, of which Upper Teesdale is an integral part, became the first area in Britain to be awarded the status of a UNESCO European and Global Geopark in June 2003. It has an incredible level of plant (and animal) diversity and during this short break we will visit some of the main botanical hotspots of this unique and scenic limestone region, visiting a wide range of habitats from low-lying hay meadows, rough grazing pastures and juniper woods to limestone grassland.
Breakfasts and evening meals are included in the holiday cost, beginning with the evening meal on Day 1 and finishing with breakfast on Day 4. The tour price includes a 3-course dinner using fresh, seasonal, good quality locally sourced ingredients.
Lunches, and daytime snacks and drinks, are not included in the cost of this tour. We will need to carry our own picnic lunch each day (these can be provided by the hotel at a small extra charge).
Accommodation will be at the Teesdale Hotel located in the quaint and pretty Dales village of Middleton-in-Teesdale in the heart of the Durham Dales near Barnard Castle. Accommodation will be in twin or double rooms, all en suite and with tea and coffee-making facilities.

Dawn Nelson was an excellent tour leader and superb botanist. I am not a botanist but she was very patient in answering my questions and helping me to get to know better some of the magical plants and flowers of Teesdale.A.L., Kent
