Today I wanted to share our mini-break to Norfolk last weekend. Sometimes you just need to get away from it all and go on a little adventure. We took off on Friday and after a long drive arrived at our hotel Barnham Broom. The hotel was perfect. It's in the middle of the countryside (so silent at night time) and only a 20 minute drive to Norwich city centre. As soon as you walk in you can smell the lotions and potions from their Spa...so good!
|Free Molton Brown goodies..yay!|
The weekend was spent doing A LOT of walking. On Saturday we drove to the coast to walk by the seaside and mooch around Sheringham and Holt. Thinking it's now spring time we didn't bring any hats or scarves; typically we needed it as the wind was FREEZING! Popping in and out of the little shops and eating chips by the seaside definitely helped though : )
Back at the hotel we used their free gym facilities to get a good work out in. I thought I wouldn't but I really enjoyed our little half an hour work outs and loved that buzz you get afterwards. Why are gym memberships so pricey?? I guess we should get back into running every other day after work...
On Sunday we went into Norwich to do some shopping. I loved discovering all the different shops down the little lanes. I bought a few Easter decorations from Tiger and my mum a candle from The White Company (I forgot it was mothers day when we booked the hotel - oops!).
Overall we had a lovely relaxing time. The mornings were spent out and about and in the afternoon we came back to relax in the hotel bar or watch a film. Perfection!
Do you enjoy weekend breaks? Where can you recommend we go to next? We really enjoyed Bath & Canterbury.
