Now that our "Indian" summer has been and gone and the children are back to…
It’s getting nice and busy down here at the Norfolk Broads and, of course, our holiday cottages in Norfolk! Easter preparations are well underway, with venues all over our favourite area of England getting ready for the upcoming Easter weekend.
Don’t worry if you can’t wait until Easter though and are visiting our self-catering and bed and breakfast holiday cottages on the Norfolk Broads in the coming week – there is still plenty to keep you and the kids occupied!
First up is the Follow the Swallow activity day at Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s Carlton Marshes on Thursday the 10th of April. To celebrate the imminent arrival of these hardy little birds, Carlton Marshes has organised some really interesting and exciting activities, games and crafts that will teach your youngsters all about the swallows’ epic journey from Africa.
Next up is an adventurous Walk on the Wildside at the National Trust’s Heigham Holmes. Running on Sunday the 13th April, the walk will give families an intimate view of this peaceful haven for wildlife. You’ll be guided off the beaten track by Heigham Holmes’s experienced Ranger in order to experience as much nature as possible, so keep a sharp eye! You could spot anything from marsh harriers and barn owls to elusive bitterns!
For those who can’t get enough of the great outdoors there is also a Guided Canoe Trip being hosted at RSPB Strumpshaw Fen by the fantastic CanoeMan! Right from the 28th of March until the 25th of July he will be offering families an alternative insight into this beautiful nature reserve. Calmly guiding you around the quiet reedbeds and Rockland Broad, it’s definitely an experience you won’t forget!
Finally, for those who just can’t trust the Great British weather and would prefer to stay indoors, why not take in Edward Seago at Sandringham? This annual exhibition is running from Wednesday the 9th of April until Sunday the 2nd of November at stunning Sandringham House, and is a beautifully curated collection of the Norfolk-born painter’s landscapes. There will even be previously unseen sketches on display and plenty of history about the hugely talented artist to take in.
Phew! That’s a pretty packed schedule! Luckily you have the perfect place to retire and relax at the end of the day right here at our self-catering and bed and breakfast holiday cottages on the Norfolk Broads. We have nine lovely and diverse holiday cottages in Norfolk to suit families of different sizes and tastes, so don’t hesitate to contact us today and find out more!
