Christmas Shopping Breaks

Is the thought of Christmas shopping sending you into a panic?  The stress of finding that perfect present along with all the pushing and shoving and horn blowing that goes with city centre shopping, it's not a great start to the Festive season is it?

This year why not combine your Christmas shopping with a short break to the Norfolk Broads.  Our Courtyard Cottage, Coach House or Pine Lodges are perfect for families or for friends to share, and with the Pine Lodges starting at just £199 for four night short break it makes an affordable treat just before Christmas.

Roys of Wroxham said to be the 'largest village store in the world' has everything you could need from present ideas, decorations, festive food and lots, lots more.  Parking is free and there is plenty of it, so no endless queue for the car park either!

If you do want to go into Norwich city centre, you can take the train from Acle station or pick up the 'Park and Ride' on the outskirts of Norwich.  Now listed as one of the  Top 10 places to shop in the UK, shopping in Norwich is a unique experience with high street stores, designer brands, independent shops and quirky goods are all on offer.  Outside of London’s Oxford Street, Norwich is the only place in the UK to have 4 national department stores as well as a local independent department store, Jarrold, within its city centre.

There is still lots going on in the Broads area out of the main holiday season, so while those who want to can go shopping, there's the option for fishing just 2 miles down the road at Thurne, the local pubs and restaurants are still open and the Bure Valley Railway offers their 'Santa Special' trips from the 24th November until the 24th of December, so a chance for the little ones to see Santa with their wish lists.

A little further afield the Thursford Christmas Spectacular is on from the 9th of November until the 23rd of December, "the biggest and most exciting Christmas show of all time in Britain."  Booking is essential, see website for details.
