MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays

When Pebble Magazine came to Norfolk

I love the whole ethos behind Pebble Magazine: Being good to the planet often means starting small and being good to ourselves. Supporting businesses that have developed fairer ways of trading and making choices that lighten the load of your life on the planet. What we’d really like is just to say we’re a magazine about living a good life full of adventures and for all this talk of eco this and ethical that not be needed any more, because it’s just the way we all do things.  Winning the Environment Award at the North Norfolk DC Business Awards this year was one of our proudest moments, so when Georgina (founder and editor of Pebble Magazine) and her partner agreed to experience our new Sandmartin Walking Holiday we were absolutely thrilled plus interested to find out what they thought of our sustainable tourism business ethos. I think it’s fair to say they both had an […]

A ‘Muddy Stilettos’ MarGins Adventure

We were absolutely delighted when Helen, the editor from Muddy Stilettos Norfolk and her partner, booked our Curlew Plus Walking Holiday in July. This year we were incredibly proud to make the finals of the Muddy Stilettos Awards in the Best Boutique Stay category, so it was an honour to welcome them both on a MarGins Adventure. I think it’s best if you click HERE to read all about their incredible journey for yourself. It literally gave me goosebumps when I read their review. Helen has managed to capture the absolute essence of our holidays and we couldn’t be more pleased with their account of a MarGins adventure on the beautiful Norfolk Coast……..   A few quotes from the review: “I love Norfolk and this is possibly the best way to see our diverse and beautiful coastline. I’ve visited many of the beaches en route but travelling by foot allows you to see some of the great […]

MarGins Curlew Walking Holiday

Walking the North Norfolk Coast Path – travel blog

This year we’ve seen an increase in solo travellers booking our walking holidays. We’re absolutely delighted that our guests feel well informed and most importantly safe and secure knowing that their logistics and accommodation are all taken care of whilst they fully immerse themselves in relaxing and enjoying their unique adventure on the beautiful Norfolk Coast. Read all about Amanda’s experience of her first long distance walking trail on our Curlew Holiday. Make a cuppa, sit down and immerse yourself in reading all about her beautiful adventure: Day 1 – Wide Open Skies  “It’s at this point that I should add that I have never done any long distance walking. At all. The beauty of MarGins is that they do all the hard work –minus the walking that is! They set up, take down and move on a fully equipped OZ Tent, along with your luggage. They do all the bookings and provide you with […]

MarGins Accessible Glamping

Accessible glamping

Since launching MarGins Holidays, being able to welcome as many people on our holidays as possible has been very important to us. But being a new business and quite a unique one, we really needed to concentrate on getting our ‘service’ right first before we could explore ways of making our tents and ultimately our holidays more accessible to all. Feedback has always been very positive in what we include in our tents. By supplying almost everything that guests will need for a hassle free luxury camping holiday, means we are attracting guests who haven’t camped before, guests who wanted to camp with friends and family and guests just wanting a camping holiday without the hassle of buying everything and having nowhere to store it all especially if they only want a few days away camping a year. So after a couple of years in business and gaining more of an understanding of what we […]

MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays

An adventure awaits you…..

We’re into our 3rd season now and very pleased to say we have already received some amazing feedback on our walking holidays. What is absolutely awesome though, is over 50% of our guests have never camped before (!) and the only walks they’ve previously done are short walks which usually include a pub (obviously no problem there!). This means our guests are not only getting to immerse themselves in all the beautiful Norfolk coast has to offer but experience the personal challenge of walking between 4 to 7 hours on consecutive days plus sleeping under canvas for the first time! “As we are about to embark on day 3 of our Sandmartin Walk, this group of non-walkers and NEVER campers are really quite chuffed to have made it 🙂 Much of the credit for this has to go to Gin and Mark for fabulous organisation and not least, putting our tents up so we haven’t […]

Muddy Stilettos Award Finalist

Muddy Stilettos Finalists

It’s been quite a year for us, first winning the Environment Award at The North Norfolk District Council Business Awards and then we were nominated for Best Boutique Stay in the Muddy Stilettos Norfolk Awards. I have to be honest, I was pretty shocked we were nominated in the first place but to make it into the final 5! Norfolk has some amazingly gorgeous places to stay and although our holidays are quite unique and exclusive I wouldn’t have thought our tents were classed as a boutique stay. BUT WOW! they were and we’re immensely proud to have got that far. A huge congratulations to all the Muddy Stilettos Award Winners and to The Norfolk Mead hotel who won the Best Boutique Stay category (totally get that!).

The tent elf team!

  We are truly blessed this year to have a small but perfect team of enthusiastic and motivated tent elves. I’ve run a business before and know how attracting the right people to join your team is such an important element of your businesses success (or not!). MarGins holidays are based purely on logistics, providing essential equipment for our guests comfort and safety and thinking on your feet on a regular basis. We don’t work set hours and being a very small business, we really can’t afford to offer anyone full time employment.     We are delighted that David, a family friend, would like to support us again this year. His help last year was simply awesome and there were day’s I quite simply could not have coped without him……a storm on Happisburgh cliffs springs to mind!! This year we’re delighted to welcome on board Kelly who has an absolute zest for the outdoors, […]
