If anybody noticed a lack of output from me last week it’s because I was enjoying a holiday! Because of my increasing online presense, I don’t feel it sensible to announce when I’m not around (I’m sure some burglars would have liked to have known). As it turned out, during a week of looting, it was more sensible then I even realised 😀
Anyway, I took my family to Norfolk – more specifically to a family-friendly complex of cottages just outside Great Yarmouth.
Lower Wood Farm cottages has an indoor swimming pool (and, boy, is it heated!), games room and outdoor play area. There are 5 cottages available, sleeping 4 to 9 people. Certainly, if Norfolk is for you and you have children to keep entertained, I’d highly recommend it.
The nearest big seaside resort is Great Yarmouth and it IS a proper resort – all fish and chip shops and arcades. It’s also very windy. The beach is quite stony and the sea goes quite far out. We found the beach at Caister-on-Sea to be better – quieter, only the occasional ice cream shop and the sea was nearer!
However, if you do visit Great Yarmouth, we’d recommend the Sea Life Centre and, for a bite to eat, Friends bistro & bar. Friends is off the main high street and is a welcome change to McDonalds and KFC. The ladies who work there were friendly and the food very nice (and big portions too).
Anyway, I’m now back and raring to go – more on plans in a later post!
