We started the new year in our caravan on a small site near Sheringham, North Norfolk.
We know Sheringham very well and always enjoy going back there. We didn't have the best of weather but still managed to get out and about. Weybourne Station is always a must
As is Sheringham itself
Many years ago we stayed in the above, one of the lasting memories was of the chair hanging from the ceiling.
We treated ourselves to a meal out at the Wiveton Bell, a lovely pub/restaurant in Wiveton village with very good food.
We had a good walk along the beach at Wells next the Sea, admiring all the beach huts as we walked
It certainly blew away the cobwebs. On our journey back we stopped for a quick photo shot of Cley mill. One of these days we might stay there!
Apart from working, putting the decorations away and generally cleaning round - oh and starting the big loft clear out it was just us until Charlotte and Nina flew up to stay for a few days. Charlotte had a couple of things she wanted to do and had time to do it all. We had a lovely day with my Aunt and Uncle, cousin and husband as well as my brother and his family up in Baildon. A stop at Ikea on the way back wasn't too stressful and David being the 'number 1 car packer' got everything in. One of the things Charlotte had wanted to do was to go to the Winter Gardens in Sheffield, Nina enjoying walking round.
We walked through and into the Millennium Gardens, where the water fountains proved interesting.
Lunch was at The Holt a place I had read about and had earmarked to go. My goodness we weren't disappointed - we loved it!!
It's in an old factory building and reminded us of our favourite Retorrick Mill down in Cornwall. Mismatched furniture and crockery, gorgeous food and excellent coffee due to the fact that they roast and grind the beans themselves.
We were taking Charlotte and Nina down to Devon and then going on to Cornwall where we would stay at their house whilst they were in France. My goodness it was cold down there, we had heavy frosts overnight and gorgeous sunrises.
Knightshayes the national property is just up the road from where we were staying so we took the opportunity to go there for a walk and fresh air. We walked down from the car park to the playground which is a tree that was blown over in the storms of 2014
It has been imaginatively turned into an excellent piece of playground equipment
with swings, ladders and tunnels
David and I are now in Cornwall enjoying the feeling of being on holiday in a self catering property. We are here not just to enjoy Cornwall but also to do some 'loft work' in between days out and walks on the beach - more of that another day. Till then enjoy your Sunday as I am xxx
