A summer of fun at Wroxham Barns

AD | Press tickets We’re very lucky here in Norfolk that we have some really amazing attractions for families and one of our personal favourites is Wroxham Barns. Since our last visit a couple of months ago there have been some new additions and we couldn’t wait to check them out.

National Trust: Felbrigg Hall, Gardens and Estate

Being a non-driving family we don’t often get to visit National Trust properties. Sadly, a lot of them are not close enough to public transport and we tent to overlook them when thinking about days out. However, recently we went on a day out with my sister and brother-in-law and made the most of being able to go somewhere in a car. Felbrigg Hall, Gardens and Estate was where we chose to go!

Glamping at Bumblebarn, Beeston Regis

Way back in August 2019 I booked for us to go glamping at Bumblebarn Bell Tents for the very first time. The trip was supposed to happen in summer 2020 but because of Covid that didn’t happen. Luckily, we were able to rebook quickly and easily so we chose the first weekend of the summer holidays this year for our trip and we were finally able to go last week!

A wild and wonderful day out at Bewilderwood, Norfolk

We are lucky to have so many amazing places to have a day out here in Norfolk but as a non-driving family I always thought some of them were too hard for us to get to. This was what I thought about Bewilderwood Norfolk! We have been before but I think Erin was about 2 and we were only able to as we had someone drive there. This year we decided to figure it out though and we finally made it back for a day out. How to get there As I said, we don’t

A family pub lunch at The King’s Head, Wroxham

Being a non-driving family we always like to find places in Norfolk that we can get to either by bus or train. One of our favourite places to visit is Wroxham as it’s only a 10 minute train ride away and then a short walk into town. Usually, when we go here we have a McDonald’s and then feed the ducks but this time we did something different. We booked a pub lunch at The King’s Head.

Lambing weekends at Wroxham Barns

Last year, when lockdown was lifted, one of our first days out was to Wroxham Barns and we all had an absolute blast. It was one of the places that Erin was the most looking forward to going again so as soon as they released their tickets for the lambing weekends I decided to plan a day out. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, you do have to book and pay for a ticket online and choose a time slot for your arrival. You cannot just turn up on the day and most of the days

A Place To Escape To During Lockdown V2

During the first lockdown we made sure that we made time to explore our local area a bit more. We had lived here for 7 years and didn’t even know about some of the fantastic places that were just around the corner. Since Erin started school and was back at swimming lessons for a while we just didn’t have much time at the weekend and this meant not getting out and about for a while. Now that the government has put into a lockdown again until the beginning of December I cannot spend that time

A Trip Back In Time On The North Norfolk Railway

Although we live close to the Norfolk coast we tend to go to the same places most of the time. Cromer is our beach of choice mainly because it’s the closest and has a lot of nearby facilities for families such as toilets. However, a couple of weeks ago we stayed in Sheringham at YHA Sheringham, which was such a good base as a family. During our weekend we decided to do something really different and go on a journey on the North Norfolk Railway. This is unlike a regular train though as it’s a
