Spring savings of up to £70 are available on a wide choice of UK leisure activity holidays – for bookings made by 28 March 2013 – courtesy of HF Holidays.

Based at the company’s UK Country Houses – all situated in National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty – options include dancing, painting, music, theatre, bridge, heritage, yoga cycling holidays.

The maximum saving is available, for example on a seven-night Railways of Devon & Cornwall holiday which takes in the rich history of the southwest – which was largely Great Western Railway territory – on a week of visits and train journeys.

Highlights of the holiday include riding on the newly re-opened Dartmoor Railway, the Dartmouth Steam Railway and the South Devon Railway. Guests also take the train over Brunel’s Royal Albert Bridge over the Tamar to the Bodmin Steam Railway and visit the West Somerset Railway.

Accommodation is at the company’s Moorlands Country House, set within eight acres of grounds just below Haytor Rocks on Dartmoor. Starting 04 May, the revised cost is £729 (saving £70) per person, twin-share, inclusive of full-board and the full programme of tours with an experienced leader.

Or, enjoy a guided Discovery Tour of the North York Moors with its picturesque fishing villages, open moorland and beautiful Hambleton Hills. Highlights include the stunning North Yorkshire coast taking in Robin Hood’s Bay and the high cliffs of Kettleness and Runswick Bay, the village of Goathland (Heartbeat Country), Mount Grace Priory and Rievaulx Abbey.

Starting 12 April, the revised price is £679 (saving £70) per person, twin-share, inclusive of full board at Larpool Hall Country House – set within 14 acres of gardens and woodland at Whitby – five full day mini-coach tours and the services of a knowledgeable leader.
