The truly British spirit of fairs and fetes brings us such delights as the Loch Fyne Food Fair (14 - 15 May), near Inverary and just a short drive from Ardgartan Argyll. Described as ‘A feast of West Coast food, drink and entertainment for all ages’, it is an opportunity to sample some of Scotland’s finest produce.
Further south, the North Yorkshire Moors Railway is holding two Spring Steam Galas on 6 - 8 May and 13 - 15 May. The galas are, this year, celebrating the joys of the Scottish Branch Lines of days gone by. Also in Yorkshire, is the Duncombe Park Country Fair at Helmsley on 30 May. Stay at Cropton or Keldy for all these events.
For something completely different, the European Archery Championships come to Robin Hood country on 24 - 29 May. The best archers from more than 40 countries will converge on Nottingham city centre to shoot for the titles. Stay at Sherwood Forest and, to complete the experience, book a woodland archery lesson under the watchful eye of our instructor.
