Gladstone's Library, 2023


25TH - 28TH AUGUST 2023

We are delighted to announce our next Knit for Peace holiday to Gladstone’s Library, North Wales.

This is our fourth trip to Gladstone’s Library, a venue much enjoyed by our knitters. The building houses the UK's finest residential library and has the atmosphere of an old Oxford College - you could easily imagine yourself as characters in Anthony Trollope’s Barchester Towers. The library and accommodation are nestled in beautiful grounds, while the local village houses a characterful pub, large health food shop and local café. For the adventurers, nearby trips to Chester or Colwyn Bay may appeal. For others, the library and its common room are a cosy alternative for the summer evenings.

The bedrooms have all been modernised and include ensuite bathrooms. If you prefer a room to yourself, there is a single room supplement of £20 per night. The trip's price includes yarn, materials, and a £100 donation to Knit for Peace’s work with women who have experienced abuse.

Gladstone’s Library can be reached by public transport via Chester, the nearest station is Hawarden. The library is a short walk from the station. Alternatively, there’s plenty of guest parking on site for those who prefer to drive. Detailed travel information can be found on Gladstone’s Library website.
