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’ […]

Walk this way….

OK, hands up if you’ve already lapsed on your New Years resolutions…….. I don’t make resolutions anymore but try to do more of the things that bring me happiness…….which mainly consists of walking and getting out in the big outdoors. I absolutely love my daily walk with Miss Brylie (beloved pooch). The lovely Claire Gurney is a specialist fitness and Pilates instructor based at Treat in Norwich, Norfolk who we’ve teamed up with to offer the magical Back to Nature Weekends. I asked Claire to put into words why walking is so good for us: Walk Your Way to Health Walking is one of the easiest, cheapest and most enjoyable forms of exercise around. As seasoned walkers will know, walking is so much more than just an activity to keep us fit. It has many health benefits, most which can be achieved from as little as 20 minutes of brisk walking each day. Here are some […]

Festive Wishes

My adventure….a year on (part 3): It’s the time of year to reflect and I think its fair to say, 2017 has been quite an eventful one….for all the right reasons. This morning I attended a networking event in Norwich. When asked the question “What do you do?” it suddenly dawned on me that it was at this same event last year that I answered this question for the first time since launching MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays. I remembered that feeling of apprehension and slight awkwardness when answering, wondering what their reaction would be, especially as I hadn’t even attempted to put a tent up yet! I was very relieved to get such a positive and enthusiastic response and so pleased that this reaction has continued throughout our first year. Now when I start to introduce myself at networking events I get very excited, relieved (and quite overwhelmed), when people say they have heard […]

The making of the MarGins film

I’ve met some really inspirational and motivated people at the various networking events I’ve been to over the last year. In July, I set up one of our Glamping tents at a networking event being held at Holkham Studios by Genix. Such a lovely location and a great opportunity to ‘show off’ our lovely tents in all their glory and talk to lot’s of people about what we offer. It was towards the end of the event that I had a discussion with James, who had just set up his own business, Expedition Studio, providing creative services including film production, illustration, graphic design, 3D modelling, visualisations, photography and virtual reality. James was really interested in our walking holidays and seemed to have a really good idea of what we offer our guests. So I mentioned that we would like to create a film that could tell the story of our unique holidays and the rest […]

MarGins Family Glamping

Since launching MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays we’ve often been asked if we can accommodate families. Our standard set up is for 2 people in our wonderful safari style tents, which is perfect for people wanting to walk the Norfolk Coast Path or couples fancying a hassle free Glamping holiday but this wasn’t a suitable option for families. So! how could we start to accommodate families without changing our tents and keeping the unique look and feel of a MarGins holiday? Oztent, as usual, had the answer. They have produced a ‘connector strip’ which zips 2 Oztents together to provide ample space for 4 people (more if there are little children). Result!! I met up with Andy from Enjoy North Norfolk for a coffee in Holt and it soon became apparent we both shared a great love of Norfolk and the North Norfolk Coast, wanting to provide people with unique opportunities to fully experience all […]

At one with nature…

Picture this…….. You are standing in a hollow surrounded by woodland. As you slowly turn around all you can see is nature at it’s finest. Tall elegant trees swaying in a gentle breeze, wild flowers standing proud amongst a backdrop of nettles, ferns and other wild plants. As you look up all you can see is blue sky with a few whisps of fluffy clouds forming various shapes as they drift slowly overhead. Now cup your ears, the birdsong is magnificent, a personal orchestra of cheeps and chirps all in tune with nature………. Over to your right is your accommodation for the night, fully equipped tents all set up waiting for your arrival, inviting you in with open arms. To you left is a fire pit, all set up waiting to be lit later and ready to toast marshmallows as the sun starts to set……… In front of you are colourful mats, all laid out […]

Life’s a beach…..

It’s official, Norfolk has some of the best beaches in the UK! 6 of our North Norfolk beaches have been awarded the prestigious blue flag status which means our beaches are amongst the cleanest and safest in the country. The Eastern Daily Press wrote that “East Runton and West Runton have joined Cromer, Mundesley, Sea Palling and Sheringham in being awarded prestigious Blue Flag status. The international quality mark recognises their high standards of cleanliness and safety, as well as the water quality.”   I love our Norfolk coastline, to the extent it was one of the major factors behind setting up MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays. I’ve travelled to some wonderful far away places with the hope and expectations that we’ll find ourselves on those remote and deserted white sandy beaches that we’ve all seen and dreamt of, listening to the gentle lapping of the waves and the sun dappling through the palm trees whilst drinking […]
