Norfolk is an exceedingly popular staycation destination, and for good reason. It is very modest about the wonders it has to offer its visitors, but don’t be fooled – because a stay in Norfolk has so much to offer every member of the family. The famous Broads are a must when visiting Norfolk. Maybe hiring your own vessel for the day and gently navigating the waterways whilst visiting some of the stunning traditionally English pubs may be an option. Perhaps surprisingly, Norfolk is home to more blue flag beaches than any other area in the country.
The growing popularity of glamping over the past decade has really opened the opportunity to enjoy an authentic outdoor holiday, to many people who wouldn’t, or indeed couldn’t, entertain the idea of traditional camping. Whist many glamping sites strive to maintain an atmosphere of “ stripping back” day to day life and re-connecting with nature, they do also offer a little bit of luxury to ensure you enjoy the best experience possible.
