Local Activities In June From Your Norfolk Holiday Cottage

Hello holiday makers wow how fast is this year going? That was May passing and it’s going to be winter before I know it, well it’s definitely a good sign the team at Hall Farm are exceptionally busy. The annual Three Rivers race took place on Saturday starting and finishing in Horning, It was a fantastic event and the weather held out thankfully.

I would like to say thanks for the good comments from the recent care parties, stating how pleased they were with the disabled facilities in our holiday cottages and also for the guests commenting on the enclosed gardens and dog kennels, which has helped considerably for people holidaying in a Dog friendly environment.
