Deepdale hygge

Finding our ‘Hygge’

Just taking a moment after another busy week, to reflect on this time last weekend…. The weather was gorgeous, the North Norfolk Coast as stunning as ever and we displayed our glamping tents for the very first time to the public. The venue was the popular Deepdale Backpackers and Campsite, who were holding their very first Hygge Festival. It was a weekend celebrating great local music, food, drink and making new friends (and memories) plus promoting activities for all on the North Norfolk Coast. There was also the Dalegate Spring Market next door with shops and stalls full of Norfolk handmade produce from delicious chutneys, tea, charcuterie to origami and beautiful jewellery. Putting our tent up for the very first time was a pretty memorable moment for us. In a way, it’s like displaying a piece of art or writing. Whilst it’s in the making, you completely own it and it’s part of your journey developing […]

Heart to Heart

The last 10 days have been a bit of a whirlwind for so many reasons. I think it’s fair to say ‘my adventure’ continues and I’m embracing and learning from every moment of it. Since my last blog so much has happened, such as purchasing a van that will become my ‘Glamp-mobile’, we’ve got more bookings and lot’s of interest in our holidays (phew!), forming some great partnerships with Norfolk business’s all along the Norfolk Coast Path (some that have the potential to offer quite unique packages to our guests) and much more. But the last week has really been a chance to reflect on my MarGins adventure and the realisation of where we’ve managed to get to in such a short period of time. Last Monday (13 February) I was contacted by The British Heart Foundation (BHF) to see if there was anything MarGins could do to support a guy called Kieran Sandwell who […]

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 […]

Festive wishes

I think that launching a new business so close to Christmas has actually helped us to cope with the annual Festive chaos. Seem’s strange I know but embracing the world of Social Media especially Twitter has meant that we keep up to date with what Festive events are happening throughout our lovely county of Norfolk. I’ve always been a believer in supporting our local businesses and small independently run shops. I love finding them special places selling handmade and locally sourced treasures. We are so lucky in Norfolk, you don’t have to go far to find them. Whilst out distributing our leaflets we’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of support we’ve received from the Norfolk shops, cafe’s, Hotels, pubs and Tourist Information centres on the North Norfolk coast. This has also given us the opportunity to Christmas shop as we distribute the leaflets in our quaint Norfolk towns. You really can’t beat finding the perfect gift […]

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 […]
