Now that our "Indian" summer has been and gone and the children are back to…
Explore the Great Outdoors with Hall Farm Self Catering Cottages in Norfolk
September is a fantastic time to book a quiet getaway and with so many fabulous events happening in the local area, Hall Farm Cottages really are the perfect base from which to explore the Norfolk Broads.
Our self catering cottages in Norfolk are ideal for romantic escapes with your partner or fun-filled family adventures with the kids. With plenty of local attractions to keep you entertained, you’ll enjoy spending time in the great outdoors and exploring the beautiful Norfolk countryside.
This weekend, children can get up close and personal with a whole host of creepy, crawly creatures. Exploring the bug life in the meadows and woods of Strumpshaw Fen, kids can spend the day learning how to catch bugs using sweep nets and magnifying posts. Just £3 per child plus reserve entry costs; it’s a great way to teach kids about nature – giving them a head start before the new school year begins.
For our resident train buffs, the legendary Tornado express engine will be taking pride of place at the Grand Steam Gala, running from the 31st August – 2nd September. Joined by David Shepherd’s Black Prince and the Poppy Line’s 84-year-old London-Harwich continental express, it really is a dream come true for anyone interested in steam engines! Staying on the line until 9th September, visitors can try their hand at driving the Tornado, ride on the footplate or even enjoy a celebratory lunch on a Tornado-hauled train (Sunday 2nd only).
If you’re more of a sea lover than a land lover, the Great Yarmouth Maritime Festival takes place this weekend (Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September) and will see the entire length of South Quay packed with exhibitions, stalls, demonstrations and of course, ships. An explosion of colour with bunting fluttering in the breeze, shanty music and the opportunity to set sail on the high seas, it’s an extravaganza worthy of exploring from the homely base of your self catering cottage in Norfolk.
So what are you waiting for? Book your stay with us now and discover a world of adventure from the comfort of your very own self catering cottage in Norfolk.
