Is a self catering holiday in Norfolk for you?
What takes your fancy? A weekend break away? A well-deserved week’s holiday? Whatever your reason for visiting and staying in Norfolk, you will find an enormous range of types of accommodation from luxury hotels through to comfortable inns, good value guest houses, homely bed and breakfast establishments and self catering accommodation of all styles and sizes. And if your idea of self-catering conjures up images of damp cottages with beds that have seen better days then think again! Self catering these days can offer everything from functional accommodation through to real luxury, and including unique properties like a converted dairy, often encompassing features and facilities many of us don’t even have at home.
The advantages of self catering accommodation in Norfolk over and above its catered counterparts are many and varied. You can choose to be isolated and stay in a heritage style building hidden away in Norfolk’s green and pleasant countryside – or overlooking a windswept beach, exposed to the elements. There are townhouses in the county town of Norwich where you can be at the centre of the city’s action. There are country cottages, chalets, caravans and holiday parks where you have the best of both worlds.
And of course the benefit of self-catering is that you are your own boss. There are no rules about mealtimes, no other guests to encounter – the freedom to come and go as you please. You can stay in bed until lunchtime, or spend the day in your pyjamas if you want to! You decide what to eat and when – and although you have the option to cook, it doesn’t mean that you have to! You can take advantage of takeaways or meals brought from home. You can even have your supermarket delivery made direct to your accommodation. It can save you money when compared with the cost of eating out every day.
The isolation of a country cottage or remote converted lighthouse is not everyone’s cup of tea. A holiday park may provide a great alternative: This combines the independence of self catering with a wide range of leisure facilities, as well as onsite entertainment, restaurants and bars. Comfortable accommodation at holiday parks may be in caravans or chalets. Some offer camping too. Often there are activities for adults and children on-site meaning that everyone can enjoy their social life in a safe and relaxed environment. Haven Caister Holiday Park offers all this and more, with something for everyone, whatever their age. There are great facilities including pools, sports facilities as well as kids clubs and day and evening entertainment. Everything needed for a great holiday can be found on site.
