‘Love Norfolk’s’ MarGins adventure

As you know, 2017 was MarGins first year. So, when Jess from Love Norfolk offered to ‘trial and review’ one of our holidays with her partner, obviously we jumped at the chance. Jess has a real passion for all things Norfolk and loves the big outdoors, so was up for a MarGins Walking Adventure. I’ll be honest, we were a tad nervous as this was one of our first walking holidays for guests. Had we included everything they may need? Is there enough food and drink? Will the weather be kind?? We were very relieved that the answer was yes to our questions, even the weather was reasonably kind, especially on the first and last day (typical) and Jess managed to take some amazing photo’s that totally capture what our holidays and the beautiful Norfolk Coast is all about. Click here to read all about Jess’s MarGins adventure and absolutely stunning photo’s. We would like […]

So, to be invited along to the 50th Anniversary of our beautiful Norfolk Area’s of Outstanding Natural Beauty Anniversary celebration on Sunday was an absolute honour in itself…….BUT it didn’t stop there! I was also asked if I would do a talk on our new sustainable tourism business to all of the guests. How cool was that?? OK, I admit I was a tad nervous but what an opportunity, so after giving myself a good talking to (!) I sat down to write a 10 minute speech on how we are aiming as a business to be as sustainable and environmentally respectful as possible. The event was being held at the wonderful Norfolk Wildlife Trust Visitors Centre at Cley-Next-the-Sea. A fitting place for such an event, although the weather on Sunday was rather wet and misty but it’s always […]

We made the finals…

I have to pinch myself to think that this time last year we were in the first couple of months of launching MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays, full of anticipation and fear but mostly enthusiasm, commitment and belief. It’s really quite scary making that decision to ‘start a business’. All those unanswered questions such as “how will we survive financially?” “will anyone want to book one of our holidays?” “will they like what we do?” “where do we start?” “how do I market this business?” and the biggy “are we doing the right thing?”. Last night we attended the Norfolk Norfolk District Council (NNDC) Business Awards Ceremony as a finalist in the New Business category. It was the first time NNDC had put on these awards so we really didn’t know what to expect when we arrived. It was held at the lovely Greshams School in the attractive town of Holt and were instantly made […]

Meeting Julia

Walking is so ‘in’ right now! Did you see ITV’s Britains 100 Favourite Walks? A whole two and a half hours of walking inspiration. Who would have thought that walking programmes would make prime time TV? Julia Bradbury has played a big part in making walking so popular and I must have watched most, if not all, of her programmes on walking. Wainwrights Walks, Countryfile, Best Walks with a View, Britains Best Walks….. Last weekend we were very lucky to meet Julia Bradbury at The Destinations Show at Olympia in London. Julia was interviewed on the Stanfords Travel Writers Show stage, talking very openly about her passion for walking and where it all started. It was her father who encouraged her to go on walking adventures with him when she was quite young. This really hit home for me, I have such lovely memories of my late father encouraging us to ‘get outside and explore’ […]
