Welcome to High Point Holidays' February Newsletter.
If you wondered where we've been, (there was no newsletter sent out in January), we've had a busy couple of months with bookings for this year. And who can blame you, with these cold easterly winds, we all can't wait for the arrival of spring and a holiday to look forward to.
In this month's newsletter, we take a look at our
Burgundy Walking Holidays, introducing 1 new addition in the Brionnais.
We have
a new competition courtesy of Honno Books; 2 signed copies of Ursula Martin's extraordinary journeys around Wales, "One Woman Walks Wales." 
Don't hesitate to contact us, if we can help with your holiday plans for 2018. 
Best wishes

"It couldn't have been better. A perfect holiday for us - relatively easy walking; lots to see & do (natural history, churches, farms, language, people); eating & chatting with French people a huge plus; lovely food & drink; stress free because planning & payment already settled; very few non-French people around! Many thanks again for such a good holiday." J. Kay, UK

One Woman Walks Wales
Ursula Martin's One Woman Walks Wales Competition

Ursula Martin never thought she would walk 3700 miles around Wales, but following a cancer diagnosis, she had, within 17 months, traversed beaches and mountains, farms and urban sprawl. Her account of the physical and mental challenges paints a unique portrait of the natural landscape of a country and its people.
Along the way she has raised money for Target Ovarian Cancer and Penny Brohn Cancer Care and raised awareness about the symptoms of ovarian cancer. Details on how to donate, are on her website: One Woman Walks Wales
