What’s going on up in wintry north Norfolk at the moment I hear you cry?

Well, to be honest, not a lot apart from the obvious….snow, that is!! Everyone has been affected by it, a fair few have been moaning about it and some of us are loving it! I have been wondering what it is that makes some of us love something that many people seem to hate.

I love this time of year because it is so quiet, so beautiful with the snow and I can hunker down in front of a roaring fire with no need to make excuses!

My children love it because they get to play outside, get snowy, go sledding (yes, there are hills up here!) and get soaked and muddy! And then they can come in, get warm and play with all the toys they got for Christmas!

My happy hound loves it for pretty much the same reasons as my children, as well as eating the snowballs that he catches….

Maybe because of this weather. So why not try it? Book one of our lovely holiday cottages in north Norfolk and find out for yourself why it is so special.
