Holkham to Wells

Hello. England has such a bad rep, when it comes to weather, but on Good Friday it pulled out all the stops. So my Mum and I drove up to the Norfolk Coast, through acres of beautiful countryside and quaint villages. We parked at the Holkham Nature Reserve before we head on the Coastal Path over to Wells-next-the-sea. A really pretty seaside town which was absolutely bustling with young couples, dog walkers and families.

Starting our walk through the pine woods, we quickly realised spring was springing and our thick winter coats had to be removed to be avoided over heating - yes I had dressed like I was going on an Artic Expedition.

Leading from the beach to the town is a path so long and straight we wondered stopping to take pictures of scenery blue skies and of myself! 

Our destination for lunch was 'Bang in Wells' because my mum thought it looked like my type of place. Set a little further into the town, it was quieter than the sea front places where there was possibly a 30 minute plus queue to get served. We found a seat straight away. After many minutes of contemplation at the all day breakfast menu, we both settled on pancakes, berries for mother and my favourite bacon and maple syrup for myself.

Packed to the brim with pancakes the only thing to do on this gloriously sunny day was to get ice cream. I went for a classic one scoop of strawberry and chocolate. We headed down to a sunny spot on the pier, despite the smell of fish in the air, the ice cream was truly scrumptious.

Once we had indulged in all those calories we headed back to Holkham this time via the beach and the adorable beach huts, still the sun was shining and not a cloud in sight. If you find yourself in Norfolk I highly recommend you head up to the North Norfolk coast on a nice day.

Thanks for popping by!
