Now that our "Indian" summer has been and gone and the children are back to…
The Spring brings so much delight along with it, clear blue skies, pretty flowers, green grass and an all-round jovial ambience. It’s the start of all things new and it also celebrates the women that bring us into the world- our mothers. Make this Mother’s Day extra special and visit the Norfolk Broads, with so many activities taking place over the weekend it’s the perfect gift, to spend some quality time with your Mum.
Although Spring is in the air the evenings still carry a slight chill, so wrap up warm and grab a torch as you embark upon an exciting nature walk! Explore inhabitants of the night at RSPB Buckenham Marshes; look out for hares, barn owls, Chinese water deers and other wildlife this Saturday evening from 5-6:30pm. Click here to book, ticket prices vary.
Just 2 miles away from our Holiday Cottages Norfolk, Bewilderwood celebrates Mother’s Day with FREE* entry for every mother; explore our award winning forest full of fun and adventure! Make her a special Twiggle box to remember this day forever, then challenge her to a Wobbly Wires race or brave the Tricky Tunnels whilst keeping your feet off the ground as you go round! After a busy day discovering, a much needed cuppa and cake to go with can be brought from our café before winding down in our crafts making activities to make Mum a memorable gift.
Now Mother’s Day isn’t just about Mum, it’s about Gran and Nan too, so why not treat them to an exciting River Boat Trip, your skipper will give a live commentary; he will explain the origin of the Norfolk Broads, point out the abundance of wildlife and other points of interest along the way. With light refreshments being served, each mother accompanied by a child will receive a complimentary glass of wine.
