Looking for a relaxing break just the two of you?
Then we recommend heading to Horsey Gap for a walk at the seal colony, where hundreds of seals are starting to arrive for the pupping season, depending on the length of walk you wish to do you can park at Waxham or Horsey and follow the coastal path. Enjoy lunch at Poppylands café which is a quirky World War 2 themed café on the edge of Horsey Village or head to the Nelson Pub which has a amazing selection of real ale and ciders and a simple pub menu, as the temperature starts to drop there open fire in the bar is great for keeping warm.
Spend the day at a National Trust property Blickling is my favourate with Felbrigg a close second, stunning houses, gardens and parkland to explore. In the evening head to the Ingham Swan, weekdays they are doing a great deal on there menu du jour.
If you enjoy being on the water, hire a picnic boat, lots of them have heaters and make up a picnic at Roys Grocery store in Wroxham and head out on the water where the broads are so much quieter than in the heat of the summer. Or if a pub lunch is more your thing head on the boat to Coltishall Common and enjoy lunch at the Rising Sun.
You can of course head back to barns any time during your stay, feel free to grab a paperback and curl on in the lounge with a cup of tea and relax………………….
