AD | We previously received complimentary entry to some of these attractions Now that May half term is well and truly out of the way it’s time to start thinking about the summer holidays. With only just over 6 weeks to go I want to start pencilling in some activities and making some kind of plan. This will be the first summer since Erin started nursery that she will be home the whole time as there was a summer club at her old nursery. We don’t have that option now so I have 6 weeks to fill! I think we’re
This past weekend was a very rare one where John didn’t have to work on the Saturday and we had some extra money put aside so we could go out for the day as a family. It’s not very often we do this just the three of us so we wanted to do something really fun and go somewhere sort of new. Even though I have lived in Norfolk now for six years now but somewhere I had never really been (apart from passing through) was Sheringham. We decided to make the most of the nice weather and have a
I moved to Norfolk in 2013 just after finishing university and I couldn’t be happier living here. I think we’re so lucky to live in such a beautiful area of the country and there’s so much on offer here. Unfortunately, we don’t have a car and can’t drive so we can’t normally get to a lot of places on my to visit wish list. Sometimes we go for days out with my sister and her fiance, who do have a car, so we always try to pick somewhere that we couldn’t go to otherwise. One of our most recent days
AD | Press trip On our recent stay at Kelling Heath Holiday Park in North Norfolk we stayed in one of their two bedroom woodland lodges. Kelling Heath do offer other accommodation options such as camping and luxury holiday homes. We instantly liked the look of the lodges though due to us having stayed in something similar elsewhere before. As Erin still has naps while we’re away we wanted somewhere we could spread out and enjoy while we weren’t out exploring. Living area and kitchen Erin likes to spread out when we’re away, especially when we bring toys and things
AD | Press trip This year we are making the effort to make the most of our local area. We recently stayed at Kelling Heath Holiday Park in North Norfolk for four nights in a woodland lodge. I was desperate for some time away from home to relax and also to spend some quality time with John and Erin. Sometimes it’s so easy to pick a city destination but we all needed some time together that wasn’t as busy and rushed. Our stay was from Monday to Friday and as soon as we arrived we felt at peace.

We don’t go into Norwich nearly as much as I would like and we definitely haven’t made the most of everything there is to do there. On a recent trip while we were reviewing COSMO we had some time to kill beforehand. It was a really wet and miserable day so we needed something to do indoors with Erin. Somewhere we had never been before was the children’s department at the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library. One of the reasons why I wanted to go to the children’s library was because I had seen that it had been refurbished a
AD | Complimentary meal provided John and I love eating out but now that we have Erin choosing a restaurant isn’t always so easy. Erin doesn’t really do well with restaurants because she hates to be sat still. Anywhere we go she lasts about 2 minutes on her chair before wanting to explore, dance or generally create a bit of madness. Waiting for the food to arrive can turn into an absolute nightmare and John and I end up more stressed out than anything else. We were recently invited to try COSMO Authentic World Kitchen in Norwich which sounded ideal
AD | Gifted Experience Earlier this year Red Letter Days got in touch to see if we would like to try one of their experiences. Living in Norfolk and not being able to drive usually means that we’re not able to get to a lot of places but having been for afternoon tea and a massage last year, I knew of somewhere we could go. We decided to go with the Country House Escape for 2 at The Grove in Cromer. This particular experience is available Sunday to Friday, throughout the year, excluding summer holidays, Christmas and New Year period.
