A Yorkshire Dales hotel last week welcomed the UK travel trade during a special showcase event. The Durker Roods Hotel near the historic village of Holmfirth – famous for its Last of The Summer Wine connections – hosted a group of coach and tour operators from around the country.

A pleasant country house hotel in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, Durker Roods was once the home of Aston Martin owner and Huddersfield entrepreneur Sir David Brown – hence the ‘DB’ prefix to the iconic James Bond movie car. Now, Durker Roods has opened its doors to groups keen to make the most of the excellent location, hotel facilities and great service.

‘We were very pleased to be able to unveil this lovely and friendly hotel to tour planners. It’s really now a new addition to the Yorkshire accommodation sector for groups and it’s pleasing that the tour buyers were impressed by what they experienced at Durker,‘ says Steve Reed of UK travel trade specialists Steve Reed Tourism Ltd. The attendees included Reays Coaches of Wigton in Cumbria; Voels Coaches of North Wales; Ellen Smith Tours of Rochdale and Acklam’s Coaches of Beverley in East Yorkshire. The Confederation of Passenger Transport [CPT] from the Northwest and Northeast regions also attended the set piece.

Belle Vue Coaches of Stockport in Greater Manchester participated in the event and provided high quality coach transport for the delegates who took in tours of Holmfirth and of the nearby Holmfirth Vineyard. Durker Roods is part of a growing portfolio of group-friendly hotels operated by Cheshire based Merydion Investments. Another hotel for tour planners to consider is their Northop Hotel in Flintshire, North Wales.
