Our Day at Holywell Bay Fun Park & Goodbye

Well this has review has been a while coming, mainly because I just didn’t know where to start. During our stay at Trevornick we spent a whole day at Holywell Bay Fun Park which was right next door.

Celebrating on The Broads with Herbert Woods

A couple of weeks ago we did one of my favourite things, spent the day out on The Broads in a Picnic Boat from Herbert Woods. Hiring a boat on The Broads is a Norfolk right of passage and the perfect way to celebrate anything, so when my Mother in Law asked for ideas to celebrate my Father in Law’s 65th Birthday I immediately thought of a boat.
