If you want to feel like you’ve stepped straight into South America without straying from Norfolk, Amazona Zoo is the place to be! It’s one our favoured day trips, we really love it.
Tucked away in Cromer, on the North Norfolk coast, this wonderful attraction has over 200 beautiful tropical animals to gaze in awe at, as well as a fantastic children’s play area, all combining to make a unique and fun day out! It really is very different from other zoos in the area. Amazona Zoo is the ideal place to plan a trip to this summer – there’s something for every age to enjoy!
Camping in the Forest recently conducted a survey and found that 48% of parents said they miss the lack of responsibility which came with being a child and 37% of parents worry their children are too wrapped up in technology. So we spent the weekend with them at their Holmsley site the New Forest camping and unleashing our inner child.
Whilst we were on holiday with Verdant Leisure at their stunning Heather View Leisure Park in County Durham a couple of weeks ago we had some lovely days out. I’m going to try to write about them all over the coming weeks, but today I wanted to share our trip to Diggerland.
We are not long back from the most fabulous holiday with Verdant Leisure. We spent Half Term week in County Durham, at the beautiful Heather View Leisure Park which is only a walk away from the town of Stanhope.
It’s a long old drive from Norfolk to County Durham. Long! L handled it like a trooper though. It’s fair to say when we arrived at Heather View he was eager to get out of the car. Our lodge was quite ready for us when arrived so we took the chance to have a little wander around the site.
I have never travelled in the sense of going on off on some great adventure all by myself. I’ve gone on holidays. But always with someone. I’ve seen a lot of places and had amazing experiences. The idea of travelling, really travelling, I find quite a stressful thought. But what are the benefits of travelling?
The Benjamin Foundation’s annual Butterfly Walk on Sunday 25th June
East Anglian charity, The Benjamin Foundation, will hold its fourth annual Butterfly Walk at Sandringham Country Park on Sunday 25th June.
The Walk will follow one of Sandringham’s trails, and is around three miles long, meandering through the Country Park’s historic woodland. Quiz questions are posted along the route, providing added fun for adults and children, with prizes for the best set of answers in each age group up for grabs at the end of the Walk. Within the Country Park there are plenty of perfect picnic spots, a large children’s play area, restaurant, gift shop and a farmers’ market, so a lovely day out for the whole family.
