Visit our holiday cottages in Norfolk this autumn…
There’s so much to do here at our luxury holiday cottages in Norfolk that when guests come to visit, they end up coming back for more! From historic cities to rolling countryside, there simply isn’t enough time to explore it all and with so many local events to keep you busy… a return trip will definitely be on the cards.
If you’re into your music, make sure you head down to The Dog Inn this Friday night for an evening of live entertainment. The Hard Rain Band will be playing from 8.30pm onwards and a great atmosphere is guaranteed. Playing everything from The Beatles to Amy Winehouse, it’s a great chance to let your hair down and enjoy some quality live music. The closest pub to our luxury holiday cottages in Norfolk (you’ll find it on Johnson Street), it’s a short 1.1 mile drive away, or if you’re thinking of making a night of it can be walked (or stumbled) in around 20 minutes.
We love Halloween and with the spook-tacular festivities just around the corner, we’ll be heading to the Norwich Ghost Walk to visit the Man in Black and hear about ghastly goings-on and gruesome ghouls to get us in the mood for a little trick or treating. Tour the historical parts of this great city and enjoy the garish tales, re-enacted by the talented Norwich ghost team! With three different walks to choose from; Lanes Walk on Mondays, Elm Hill Walk on Tuesdays and the Castle Walk on Thursdays, why not discover the horribly horrendous past? Fancy all three? Go on, we dare you! At just £6 for adults and £4 for concessions it’s definitely worth it. Walks start at 7.30pm and last for approximately 2 hours.
Once you’ve regained your composure and have had a decent night or two’s sleep, head down to Strumpshaw Fen where you’ll find a range of broadland habitats and wildlife to explore. Wander around the reedbeds, orchid-rich meadows and glorious woodlands to see autumn at its very best.
There’s plenty to see and do and if you’ve got the kids in tow – even better. Activity rucksacks are available and there are a variety of guided walks for birdwatching beginners and seasoned pros as well. This Sunday ( 21st October) there’ll even be a walk with the warden – a brilliant tour that will guide you through the various habitats of Strumpshaw Fen, giving you chance to see how the RSPB mange the reserve.
Discover how the wardens use age-old techniques to manage the spectacular habitats from fen mowing to grazing with cattle – it’s well worth a visit. Tickets are £5 for adults, £3 for children (RSPB members £3/£2) with the walk starting at 10.30am and ending at 12.30pm, just in time to head back to your holiday cottages in Norfolk for a good hearty lunch! Perfect.
