Trip Report Back to Norfolk

Jump to last reply

I' m no good at this but I've had such good advice from so many of you for so many years that I just have to write this probably sorry trip report. And I want you to know about this charming part of England.
Two years' ago our daughter's friend offered us her cottage for a week in Norfolk. We had no idea what to expect but were happy to accept. We loved it. This year Di moved to a larger house and again invited us to come stay with her.
There she was waiting for us at Gunton Station with her cute little pink Chevrolet. Di lives in Southrepps, about 5 miles from Cromer. Her house is a flint house as are most houses I'm that area. It was built in 1710 and is so charming with a walk in fireplace, old floorboards but beautiful new kitchen and bathroom. There is a big yard with a lovely newly purchased round greenhouse and lovely gardens. At dusk if we are lucky we see the barn owl zooming around like a little helicopter looking for small prey.
After showing us around the newly decorated house she drove us to Cromer. Love Cromer with its grand slightly faded hotels like Hotel de Paris facing the sea. It was a beautiful warm sunny day and crowded with people enjoying the shops and the beach. We had ice cream and bought some dressed crabs for next days starter before dinner.
We had a dinner reservation that evening at the Vernon Arms, a very popular pub in Southrepps with very good food. Reservations are a must. Jim and I shared a starter of pâté and I had crab Mornay for my main. Di had duck and our daughter also had the crab Mornay. Sorry but I forget what Jim had. The four of us shared two deserts of 3 scoops of ice cream and a Bailey's cheesecake. With wine, 3 starters, 4 mains, 2 deserts the bill came to 100 £.
On day 2 we went to a Huntsman's fair and I'll continue tomorrow....
