    thinking of doing a Shearings trip from Leeds. Could anyone tell me how long the journey was and which stops were on the way? thanks

    Response from Annette J | Reviewed this property |
    Hi there, I travelled from the North East and it took approx 7 hours. Add an other couple of hours from Leeds? Depending on the route the potential stops include Gretna Green. The journey is worth it - hope you enjoy!
