Easter in Norfolk

Having enjoyed Christmas in Norfolk last year, and as I was able to get a couple of extra days off around Easter, we spent a long weekend in Norfolk - staying in a converted windmill in Cawston, kind of between Norwich & Sheringham.  

Our accommodation for the weekend - our bedroom is right at the top.

We had the family with us this time, and we spent a lovely few days relaxing and visiting places over the weekend.  

We had fish & chips by the seaside twice - once in Cromer, and once in Wells-Next-The-Sea (digging the allotment will soon burn it off!!).  We visited the Blickling Estate, of which more anon.  We also went to Sheringham Park, site of our Christmas stay, and saw the changes that the new season had brought.

Whilst we didn't get time to worship there, we did visit the local church, St Agnes', which dates back to the 14th Century.

Where latecomers sit?

A look down the church.

As much as we love Norfolk, we are planning to walk Hadrian's Wall in July, so we'll need to practice hill walking before then - something that Norfolk doesn't lend itself to!!

(P.S. - this is the first blog post this year written whilst sitting outside - let's hope the spring and summer allows for many more!)


  1. The mill looks great. Sorry we couldn't manage to meet up this time round! see you in June x

  2. Ooooh, you are going to Northumberland! How exciting! Alas, I shall not be there in July otherwise that would have been funny to unexpectedly meet up on the wall.
    You stayed in a windmill! How fabulous!
