So, if you would like to have a holiday to look forward to after the Coronavirus situation is over, the do get in touch and we’ll provisionally book you in!

Rural Business Awards UK Finals

In October 2019 we were the very proud (and shocked) winners of The Best Rural Tourism Business in the East at the Rural Business Awards. This meant we were automatically made a finalist in the UK Rural Business Awards…….Wowsers! little ol’ us! So, last Thursday (27th February) I managed to squeeze myself into a a posh (well posh for me) little black dress and off I went to the rather impressive The Monastery in Manchester. A lovely venue to arrive to with a red carpet (not just for me, LOL) and glasses of bubbles to get the evening started. I was very pleased to see the lovely owners of The Itteringham Community Shop also there, who had won 2 awards in their categories. A delicious 3 course meal was next. I sat on a table with 2 other businesses, Ballinger Equine and Ark Farm Ltd. It’s always such a pleasure talking to other businesses and […]

WINNERS!!! Best Rural Tourism Business in the East

Oh my giddy aunt!! We only went and won the award for The Best Rural Tourism Business in the East at the Rural Business Awards last Friday 1st November at Trinity Park in Ipswich. We’ve won two awards now this year and we really couldn’t be more proud, delighted, a tad giddy and I have to say shocked and overwhelmed to be honest. Setting up a business is never going to be easy, I’ve said all of this before but when you have a ‘seed of an idea’ and then pluck up the courage to give it a go, to then watch and feel it grow and develop, is immensely satisfying, rewarding…….and flipping hard work! The Rural Business Awards are now in their 5th year following another ‘seed of an idea’ made over a farmhouse kitchen table in rural Leicestershire, wanting to make a difference to the profile of rural businesses in the UK. When we […]

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, […]
