offers duplicate bridge breaks in various hotels in the North of England and in Scotland. The hotels suit most budgets and personal tastes, offering everything from bargain breaks with plain and simple food to more luxurious establishments with exciting menus and everything in between.  They can all cope with special dietary requirements. Further information on the hotels I use can be found on my website or you can request a brochure.

All holidays are hosted personally by me, Helen Barr, include dinner, bed & breakfast and vary from 3 night weekend breaks to 3 or 4 night midweek holidays plus a couple of 5 night stays.

The morning and evening duplicate bridge sessions are as well organised as you would expect with a retired English Bridge Union Tournament Director in charge. Electronic Bridgemate scoring ensures results are available within seconds of the last results coming in and duplicated boards mean there are hand records available for analysis and discussion. All holidays are licensed by the EBU or SBU and prizes and master points are awarded for each session.

The friendly atmosphere is helped along by everyone coming together in the bar each evening so I can buy them a pre-dinner drink! My motto is “Bridge is fun!” and my guests tend to agree. Many of them return year after year, often for several holidays each time. Most of my bookings have come as a result of personal recommendations from people who have been on my holidays.

I also offer bespoke holidays for groups which can also include seminars with prepared hands on most bridge topics.

If you have any specific queries, I am happy to answer them in person on the telephone or in response to an e-mail or letter.
