The World of Beatrix Potter

  Back in the February half-term when we went to stay up in Yorkshire, we hopped over the county border over to Cumbria for a day and visited The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness-on-Windermere. I’d always wanted to go there when I was a…

Half Term Trip Away to Yorkshire

We managed to get away to for a little holiday last week. We don’t go away much but when half-term meets your big birthday (4-0 eeeeeek) then it would be rude not to? I quite fancied cosying up with the family, a lovely bath…

Summer Favourites

A windy day at West Runton

On our last full day in Norfolk we went to West Runton for another beach day. The village of West Runton is a bit more off the beaten track than Sheringham or Cromer. I think it might be my favourite beach out of the three we…

Cromer, North Norfolk

For our second full day we headed to Cromer. Cromer is an old fashioned seaside town complete with a nostalgic inducing Grade II listed pier and a decent stretch of beach. We parked in a ‘stay all day’ type car park right opposite the beach so…

Barnhouse Holiday Cottages, Norfolk

In the middle of September we had a lovely four day break in North Norfolk. A sort of continuation of Andy’s 40th celebrations and if it hadn’t been for that then I’m not sure we would have got away this year. I certainly didn’t…
