Joys of Caravanning

Norfolk.

September 2011. (This Page is under construction and I hope to complete it over the next few months). 

Norfolk is a lovely county and I will try to put down many interesting places to visit and a few good Caravan Sites, these will all be Caravan Club as that is the only Club we are members of.

These are 3 wonderful National Trust Properties that are a must to visit.

Blickling.                                                                                                                             Felbrigg.                                                                                                                             Oxburgh Hall.                                                                                                          

Two other Houses not to miss are our Queeen's Country Home of Sandringham plenty to see here the little Church where the Royal Family worship at Christmas time, wonderful gardens, museum and of course the House itself.   After parking your car visit the Estate shop and Restaurant on your way to the house or even on the way back.

If you are a Caravan Club member you can get entry to the lovely house of Houghton Hall 2 for 1 which is wonderful value.  Excellent Restaurant to visit on the way to the House also very interesting is the Toy Soldier Museum next door to the Restaurant and Shop.  We found the shop very sparce though.  What rooms we were able to visit in the house were excellent but we were a bit disappointed in the number of these but the gardens and grounds were very well kept and a joy to wander around.

The coast of Norfolk is wonderful and there are some lovely villages and towns situated on it I will try to describe some with photo's as well.  

 

Houghton Hall.  Entry price 2 for 1 for Caravan Club Members with token.

Blakeney a lovley coastal village.  

A must to visit is Blakeney where you get boatrips out to view the seals.  The carpark here is run by the National Trust so if you are a member you can park here free of charge.                                                                                                             There are many nice cafe's and pubs to eat at but we can highly recommend The Blakeney Hotel and at lunch time the Crab Sandwiches are just wonderful.  A full lunch here is excellent too.  Around the corner going up the hill from the Hotel is a nice mens shop where my husband always manages to buy something from, usually in their sale.  Further up the hill is the Anchor Shop, run by a charming, friendly couple with nice gifts and trinkets, at a very reasonable price, I might add plus lots of  little cards and postcards.
