Friday to Monday off peak cottage weekend breaks are popular for special family occasions or just stress busting weekend breaks (except during peak summer and school holiday periods). Monday to Friday short break in Norfolk are good value, with 4 nights for the price of 3. Out of season the countryside and towns in North Norfolk are quieter, the beaches deserted, pubs and restaurants are not as booked and we tend to be less busy. You may well find that you have the pool and tennis courts to yourselves during out of season short breaks.

For a special occasion gourmet weekend why not book a good local restaurant. This may take some advance planning especially if you have the excellent Galton Blackiston’s Michelin starred Morston Hall in mind. There are also several good restaurants not too far from here: The Victoria at Holkham, The White Horse at Brancaster and the Hoste Arms at Burnham Market.

For gourmet cooks on a weekend self catering break, Norfolk has a wealth of good local produce from organically grown fruit and vegetables, locally grazed meats, locally caught fish and seafood, handmade Norfolk cheeses and handmade chocolates.

SELF CATERING HOLIDAYS      gold tourism award  

“Our first family holiday with our 8 month daughter - and what a great place to choose. We have had a lovely time, swimming in the pool every day, cycling down country lanes and walking through the countryside. Can highly recommend getting the babysitter in and heading off to Morston Hall for a wonderful dinner at a Michelin starred restaurant. Amazing food and a well earned treat. Hope you enjoy as much as us.”
