Duplicate Bridge Weekend

Following our sell-out weekend in February, this will be our second 'duplicate only' bridge break and is aimed at confident intermediate-plus and advanced players. The bridge programme  will include duplicate sessions, lessons on duplicate tactics as well as tutorials with Peter Stocken going over the interesting hands from the previous evening’s duplicate. Dinah Stocken will also be joining the group.

As always with our bridge holidays, the bridge will be friendly and we insist that players must show courtesy and good manners to their partner and to other players at the table. No partner is needed to come on this holiday, but please be aware that, while we will always do our best to find you a suitable partner, we may be very limited in choice. The Stockens will always be available to partner up guests where needed.

The Woburn Hotel

The Woburn Hotel is situated at the heart of the pretty Georgian village of Woburn, at the gateway to the historic Woburn Abbey Estate, home to the 15th Duke of Bedford and his family, set in a 3,000 acres of deer park and Humphry Repton inspired landscape. This charming 18th century hotel with four AA stars is one of Bedfordshire’s finest country hotels and blends English tradition with contemporary creature comforts.

This hotel exudes warmth from the moment you step inside, with plush carpets and luxurious décor in rich autumnal tones. The Tavistock Bar, with blackened wooden beams and open fireplace, is a cosy place for a drink, while the Drawing Room is the perfect place to relax with comfortable sofas and chairs. Exceptional service, friendly staff and a warm welcome are guaranteed at The Woburn Hotel. We will be playing bridge in the bright and elegant Canaletto Suite and dining in an adjacent private dining room. There is plenty to do away from the bridge table (walking in Woburn Deer Park, Bletchley Park, Woburn Safari Park, golf, shopping….) The hotel is approximately one hour’s drive from London, Birmingham, Oxford and Cambridge so easy to reach by car and Woburn Sands train station is just 3 miles away - a taxi can be arranged.
