Last weekend we were invited to stay at Reedsmere, the latest property to join the Broads Escapes family. Sleeping 6 people and right on the bank of the river, this comfortable property was the perfect place for a family weekend.
We go on holiday a lot with the kid, maybe two or three family breaks a year. We’ll camp, boat, caravan, we really don’t care but one thing they have all had in common is they have been self catering in the UK. They have also been work, reviews for this blog. We haven’t had a family holiday in the sun at all since L was born and technically I haven’t had a holiday at all.
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!
