SBS Winners Badge

Goldfish to a Dragon

I’ve never really won anything before, except a goldfish at the fairground when I was a little girl! So when @marginsholidays was announced as a winner by Theo Pathitis at the end of February on Twitter, I was absolutely gobsmacked. I only started embracing Social Media at the end of 2016 when we launched our website and started the promotion and marketing of MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays. I have to confess I didn’t even know what a # meant! But I got my head down and started to learn. It was at a networking event in Norwich that I met a lovely lady from Agent Shave. They had only launched their business a few weeks before as well. She was over the moon as Agent Shave had just become winners of the Theo Pathitis Small Business Sunday #SBS competition on Twitter and she thought this was something MarGins should do to gain followers and support […]

My adventure…..

We’re now into the middle of January, the first few weeks have flown by and MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays is into its second month of business.               Last week we welcomed our very first MarGins guests to the wonderful Norfolk Coast. We arranged a bespoke package for them to walk from Hunstanton to Cley-next-the-Sea over 3 days with their dog. Our guests were sisters wanting to share some quality time together as they both live opposite sides of the world and only had a short time together in the UK, so there were high expectations of the service from MarGins and the Norfolk Coastline….in January! No pressure! But, it couldn’t have gone any better. They fell in love with the Norfolk Coast! My heart skipped a beat when one of the sisters said “I think I’ve found my spiritual home, this has been the highlight of my trip […]

New Year resolutions…..

This week I’ve been reflecting on that question “What’s your New Year’s resolution?” It’s quite a personal question really and we may not want to share our resolutions with just anyone. I never liked the question because we have a tendency to set our expectations for change quite high, such as losing weight, joining the gym etc. and then if we don’t ‘succeed’ we see it as a failure leading to low self-esteem and confidence in our ability’s. I was at a New Year’s party in 2014 having this exact conversation with a good friend and neighbour, which admittedly was fuelled by a few drinks. It led onto a discussion on things we’d both like to achieve rather than what we think we should be doing. That was when we shook hands on a resolution that for me, was going to lead onto the beginnings of setting up MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays. We both […]

A very productive week

The last week has been a whirlwind of productiveness. Last week we received our MarGins leaflets that Mark designed. It was quite nerve racking opening the box, really hoping they were going to look OK but I’m pleased to say we are thrilled with them, so my next task is distributing them around the Norfolk Coast and anywhere that walkers, nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts visit. We had a busy and rather festive weekend. On Saturday, Cromer had their Christmas light switch on. So I took my Mum for a wander around a cold but very Christmassy Cromer, taking in the Christmas tree festival in the church, meandering through the street stalls and having a very warming hot chocolate at the wonderful Rocket Cafe looking out over a festive Cromer Pier before the big lights switch on. It’s lovely to see so many people supporting our local towns as there is a lot of behind the […]

First week reflection

Well, today marks our one week anniversary and what a week it’s been. Really loving all the support from our Twitter and Facebook followers and supporters, thank you for all the likes, share’s and retweets we really appreciate it. It’s meant we’ve let so many people know we’re up and running and ready for business already! Brylie and I have taken full advantage of the glorious weather and have completed our re-walk of the whole of the Norfolk Coast Path. I love walking our stunning coast any time of the year, it’s so diverse with constant breathtaking views around every corner. This time we’ve been taking lot’s of notes along the way so we can make sure our MarGins guests have the most up to date information on places to eat, drink, toilet stop, picnic stop places of interest along the way. The next step is revisiting and finding some of the amazing local shops, cafe’s […]

Nice to meet you…

MarGins Walking and Glamping holidays has emerged from a love of being in the big outdoors and exploring what it has to offer. I’m Gin, my husband is Mark and our adored pooch is Brylie. We’ve always enjoyed our holidays that give us a true appreciation of experiencing where we are by being able to immerse ourselves in the local area without any restrictions. We all spend most of our lives watching the time so we can be somewhere ‘important’ at a certain time to do a certain thing, so we’re big believers that you should break rules when you go on holiday and not have to ‘clock watch’! I (Gin) have always had a passion for walking. I appreciate the freedom it gives you and the opportunities to explore that you just don’t have when you’re confined to a vehicle. I love nothing more than putting my boots on and stepping out into the big […]
