What to do with children in North Norfolk...our top three!

Next week we are off to one of our favourite places in the UK, the north Norfolk coast. We are very lucky as we get to spend a lot of time there and the boys absolutely love it. We have our finger's tightly crossed for a week of sunshine (although that rarely happens on our family holidays).

I asked my boys (aged 5 and 7) what they wanted to do next week and here are their favourites (based on their previous  'Norfolk' experiences).

1. Bewilderwood

If you haven't visited Bewilderwood then you really should. It is set in the woods between Hoveton and Horning - pretty close to Wroxham. We stay near to Wells but it's worth the short drive. Sam and Harry absolutely love it there - it's a magical tree top world where hobbit like creatures come to live thanks to the amazing story-telling staff on hand to tell you a yarn or answer any questions. You enter the park via a short boat ride where the narrator sets the scene for your visit.

2. Crabbing at Blakeney


I loved this as a child and have fond memories of crabbing alongside my Grandad when I was Harry's age. Blakeney hasn't really changed and the harbour is full of children crabbing whilst parents try to stop them from falling in. We will definitely be crabbing next week.

3. Wells Beach


I'm not sure who loves it most here, me or the children. They love to take the little train from the town down to the edge of the pineforest. We then have a ramble throught the pine forest, a play on the 'secret' swing and then it's on to the beach to build sandcastles, roll down the sandunes (some what smaller thanks to the storms last year) and of course to have a paddle. A must on the way bak to the car is an icecream at the cafe in the car park.

There is so much to do in the summer in North Norfolk, but when I asked my children what they wanted to do - these are the three things they came up with. It will be interesting to see what their three favourite things are after we have visited so keep an eye on Facebook, twitter and Instagram to see what we actually get up to #norfolkadventures
