Review: A Family-Friendly Break At Park Resorts California Cliffs Holiday Park, East Anglia

Mangreen Country House Hotel, Swardeston, Norfolk

Early June we spent a couple a few days around Norwich in Norfolk, we stayed at Mangreen Hall just outside of Norwich.  It was not easy to find as it is down a small by-road off the A140 Ipswich Road, but this does mean that you are out in the c...

A Day Out With Elspeth in Southwold and Walberswick

Before I introduce you to these Suffolk seaside places, I would like to speak of the kindness I found in nearby Halesworth. Not only the friendliness at the event I attended, but when something went wrong, and from strangers in the street.   Sou...

If you’re still filling your trolleys with food for the festive period but are missing a few bits, then pop on over to the East of England Co-Op and grab some of their Sourced Locally festive goodies. Unfortunately our large Co-Op is shutting a...

45 Years

Last year, while dining with an old friend at the Assembly House, Norwich’s delicious Georgian gem, we stumbled upon the making of ’45 Years’ starring Sixties starlets, Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtney. I caught the ravishing Ms Rampling rus...

Vicious!

Norwich life is enriched by regular soirees of beer and banter with a well-preserved couple who have been together since God was a toddler. They will remain nameless to spare their blushes. We’re the same generation and witter on endlessly about th...

Sourced Locally Fortnight #iheartlocal

One of the many reasons we moved to Essex, apart from the beautiful sunshine that we are so lucky to have here was the access we had to locally produced food. After being a slave to lots of processed food living in London, we found that every time we...

A Day Out With Elspeth On A Bus Named Lady Fermoy

I reprised my trip aboard Norfolk Green and Coasthopper buses, and this time was on one named after Ruth COMMA Lady Fermoy, friend of Queen mum who made her grandchild Princess Diana cry. I did the bit I couldn’t do with Pocahontas and kept to...

Elspeth’s Quest for East Anglia’s prettiest village

This is a new strand, a quest which will go round the country – seasides, cities, spa towns…. This first post is about villages. As I’ve been writing about it most, I start with East Anglia. As I was denigrating Burnham Market, wh...

A day out with Elspeth in Woodbridge

This is a lovely little East Anglian town but not as lovely as its regular feature in regional magazines wants me to believe. Woodbridge is an example of what this part of England does best: that slow, untouched feel, in the nicest way. The low rise...

Closed for 2014

A sunny spring day saw us on the top floor of a double decker cruising cross-country past gilded fields of rapeseed. We were on our way to Loddon, a picture postcard market town of 2,500 souls, ten miles outside Norwich at the headwaters of the Norf...

When in Rome

The great castle keep of Norwich dominates the city’s skyline. At first sight, it looks too twee to be authentic, its walls too sharp, its stonework too white and its decoration too untroubled by the march of time. No wonder Liam and I assumed it t...

Norwich-Over-The-Water

After 20 months, we finally closed the door on the Weaver’s Cottage and left the old parish of Norwich-Over-The-Water. It was a sad parting but bricks and mortar are just that, even when they’re 370 years old and located in the oldest ward in...

Roy’s Town

At the tail end of summer, we took an afternoon excursion to Wroxham, gateway to the Norfolk Broads. We expected pretty and quaint with teahouses, old pubs and happy holiday-makers splashing about in boats. We were disappointed. Anything worth preser...
