Tis the season to be on the Broads

As much as we are still desperately clinging on to the memory of the last golden days of summer, Christmas is fast approaching, and many of us have already started planning for Christmas and even beyond into the New Year.


New years resolution

Some particularly keen people have even started to piece together their 2019 New Year’s Resolutions. Writing down your New Year’s Resolutions is apparently one of the key tricks to making them come true, but when you start thinking about all the things you want to achieve next year with your pen poised in your hand, it can be difficult to decide what you want to do next year out of all the many, many things you would love to achieve in your life eventually. One top tip to help you choose what things to make into a New Year’s Resolutionis to theme your resolutions, for example, you could theme your list around fitness, food, health or even travel. If the theme of travel resonates with you, then why not start now? You don’t even need to go far or spend a fortune on costly flights. And what’s more, there’s still plenty of time to discover and explore a brand new part of the UK before the end of 2018.


What makes Norfolk special?

The county of Norfolk is one of the most beautiful in the UK with its vast expanse of picturesque coastline, bustling towns and thriving city, verdant woods and fascinating history. Planning a trip to Potter Heigham in Norfolk over the Christmas or New Year period is a great opportunity to see the county at its wintry best and to reconnect with your family or friends. Unlike many holiday destinations in Europe, the action in Norfolk doesn’t grind to a shuddering halt in the winter months, making Broads Escapes the ideal base for you to see in the New Year. A cottage holiday offers the best of both worlds. You get the comfort and feel of being at home, with the excitement and variety of being on holiday without having to get on a plane.


Excite your tastebuds

When you do decide that you want to get out and about, there are plenty of local restaurants and pubs for you to celebrate in and to soak up the festivities, like The Falgate Inn and Kings Arms in Ludham, or The Lion in Thurne, a mere two-mile drive away. Thursford also holds a well-known Christmas Spectacular event every year, to which people come from all over the UK! The show is an extravaganza of singing, dancing, comedy and variety, which is great fun for everyone no matter their age. It runs from 6thNovember to 23rdDecember 2018 and is on twice a day at 2pm and then again at 7pm.


Celebrate in style 

If you’re planning a mammoth shindig for the whole family, then Broads Escapes’ cottages have plenty of space to accommodate every single member of your family. You could even have individual cottages for different branches of the family, giving you the feel of having your own private village or street, with everyone popping in and out of one another’s houses. What better way to spend Christmas or the New Year than with your loved ones celebrating in style? We’ll bet that you won’t hear a single ‘Bah, humbug!’ the whole time you’re here!
