Visiting beautiful Norfolk with Norfolk Cottages

I love going to Norfolk, we have had a few holidays to Norfolk since having children. There is so much to do with the children and such a beautiful place. Stunning coastal areas of outstanding natural beauty, the wonderful Norfolk Broads are perfect for hiring a boat to spend a day on the water. Beautiful country side with lots of market towns and the city of Norwich.

Not only is Norfolk stunning by the day at night there are also many in land dark areas that are perfect for star gazing. A one of our trips we spent many evenings watching the sky. There are also many historic properties to visit, sea watching at Blakeney point. Many wildlife areas not forgetting the little coast towns. Norfolk really does offer something wonderful for everyone.

Holidays with Norfolk Cottages

Norfolk Cottages are home some beautiful holiday cottages, I have chosen a few that I would choose to stay in. Whenever we book a cottage in the UK, I always make sure there is a pub within walking distance and has a beautifully presented interior style.

Norfolk Cottages

Bella’s Cottage is in the village of Stifkey, which I have actually been to a couple of times. It’s a picture perfect village, with a shop and a village pub. Bella’s Cottage is a perfect location to for exploring the cost line, located near to Holkham and Blakeney. Sleeping 4 people, this cute quirky cottage is the perfect little cottage for a getaway to beautiful Norfolk.

Rose Cottage is a stunning and stylish cottage, in the village of Sedgeford with the village pub just a short work and a the nearest shop is just 2.5 miles away. Rose Cottage is beautifully furnished, sleeping 4 people and even has a log burner for the chilly winter months. There is a lovely little cottage garden for you to enjoy when the weather is nice.

The Coach House is a beautifully renovated coach house in the small village of Holme-next-the-sea. The Coach House is a spacious property with a large enclosed garden, located a mile away from the nearest pub and shop. Holme-next-the-sea is great location for exploring the coast areas.

The Golden Lion Barn is a beautiful luxury barn conversion that sleeps 6 people and welcome 2 dogs. The Golden Lion Barn is located near Thursford and only a short drive to the coast. If you are looking for walks with the dogs and happy to drive around the area then Golden Lion Barn is the place for you to stay.

We are planning to visit Norfolk again soon, maybe for a long weekend, I would love to visits the Lavender fields. Have you ever stayed in Norfolk? Where would you recommend?

Beautiful Wales cottage holidays

A few years ago my Hubby’s Uncle and his family moved to Wales, it’s a place that we have not visited as a family. I have heard amazing things about visiting Wales and I really want to go. Not that we would stay with my Hubby’s Uncle, we would opt for a cottage. I do love a picture perfect cottage or barn conversion.

Finding the a beautiful cottage isn’t always easy but Wales Cottage Holidays have a wonderful collection of affordable cottages in Wales.

Wales Cottage Holidays

Wales-Cottage-Holidays-Anglesey

Anglesey is a place that I have been wanting to go for years, I think if I was choosing a location in Wales to holiday it would be Anglesey. Llanddygfael Hir is a luxurious 5* new cottage, that sleeps 8 people and has a hot tub. Located near Cemaes Bay on the Anglesey coast line. There is plenty of outdoor space and not over looked by anyone. It nearest pub and shop are just over a mile away, but with the lovely welcome pack you get it will keep you going with tea and coffee until you make it to shop.

snowdonia-holiday-cottage

Snowdonia is a beautiful part of Wales, my Hubby has been there walking many times. Maesmor is a beautiful cottage set within the Snowdonia National Park. A stunning interior, with stunning views, I can imagine sitting in the garden with a glass of wine taking in the views. Although it is 4 miles away from the nearest pub, for the views and the location I would give up my normal rule of a having pub within a mile. Sleeping 6 people it’s great for a group of couples wanting to do some walking or a larger family.

If you fancy heading toward Pembrokeshire and the West of Wales, Llety’r Graig is a 5* cottage that has the most fabulous view, a large garden and a hot tube. Evenings spent in the hot tub after a day walking would be wonderful. Sleeping 6 people, it has a log burner for the winter months and is only 1 mile from the nearest pub and shops, perfect.

Denbigh Cottage near Denbigh North East Wales, is a large 5* cottage that sleeps 8 people. Making it perfect for large families or a couple of families wanting to go together. It has a hot tub, a table tennis table, a large climbing frame for children and the nearest shop and pub is 1.5 miles away. With stunning views and just 10 miles to the coast, its a great base for those who want to head out for some water sports.

Every cottage I have looked at has the most stunning views, it makes me wonder why we have yet to visit Wales as a family. Have you ever visited? Where would you recommend staying?

Hen Party ideas in Liverpool

I have never visited Liverpool, but it’s a really popular place to visit for hen and stag parties. Liverpool isn’t just the home of the Beatles and amazing night life. There is so much more to Liverpool. Liverpool is home to amazing architecture, the largest cathedral in the country, the Albert Docks, amazing shopping and Liverpool football club, to name just a few.

Liverpool is an eclectic city, with things to do whatever you loves are. I think it would make not only for a the perfect weekend away….. I must speak to the Hubby about that. But also a brilliant fun filled destination for a hen party.

Hen Party ideas in Liverpool

Liverpool has a wide range of accommodation options, it would be a youth hostel, apartment or fancy hotels, whatever the size of the hen party you will find just what you are looking for.

If you have a hen who loves to shop, then Liverpool is the place to be. The Cavern Quarter is the place to go for the designer boutiques. For the best high street shopping, head to South John Street where you will find your all of your favourite high street stores.

If you are after a bit of culture while in Liverpool then there is the Cathedral, Liver Building, the Albert Docks, not for getting the museums with the Beatles Museum being the most popular of them all in Liverpool and a must see for any Beatles fans.

Restaurants in Liverpool are among some of the best in the country, with Röski offering fabulous fine dinning and Panoramic 34 gives you some of the best views across Liverpool while your eating. If it’s not fine dinning that you are wanting then you can find numerous other restaurants that will suit your needs, Italian, Chinese, grill house, indians, burger bars and even Japanese, Liverpool has to all on offer.

If it is a big night out you are looking for then Liverpool is home too, comedy clubs, night clubs, casinos, not forgetting amazing bars and the dream boys (if you are wanting that kind of thing). Roof top bars and cocktails bars are the perfect place to start the evening off, why not try Palm Sugar Lounge for some classy cocktails.

Liverpool also has lots of activities on offer for hen parties, cocktail making (which is amazing fun), chocolate making, dance classes, wine tasting, pamper parties, spa days, pole dancing or if you see you and then hens as the next Beatles why not book a recording studio session.
