Mixed weather, great market town, fab company, food & wine

Two Mills touring park, North Walsham, Norfolk

Motorhome trip No21 : June 19th – 21st 2015


Arrived about 1.45 pm after a rather long and tedious journey where our wonderful satnav took us on a rather roundabout journey, hey ho, maybe its back to the map next time *smile*

Nice campsite, best of british, 81 standing pitches some with water. Very peaceful and quiet and an adult only site. We were on the lower level next to Pete & Joy in pitches 12 & 11 respectively. The 2 higher levels were called Panorama & Top acre, O2 phone service only at Top Acre. Had some probs with van i.e service had left ALL water and gap taps on…. Plus smell of surplur caused by new relay over charging habitation battery – not good news , going back into Don Amotts on Tuesday, hence need for phoe service!

Pete & Joy arrived about 6pm-ish. We had some nice ale and wine to get the weekend started.

Had a lovely lasagne and salad that joy cooked , then pud and cheese, bikkies and wine. Lots of happy talking and then to bed.

Saturday was a bit mixed weather wise. We walked into town via the fields and past many lovely bungalows with great gardens and explored this quaint market town. We had lunch in a town hostelry (Kings Arms – would recommend), saw 1st half of the 5th ODI cricket between NZ & us. Exciting, nice lunch and Kings Arms ale. Walked back and just got back in time before downpour. Reading , chillin in P&J’s van then BBQ for tea – chicken, burgers and large jumbo hot dog sausages and salad followed by English strawberries, raspberries and greek yoghurt. Wine, madiera and port HIC!

Sunday cooked breakfast , P&J had to leave cos daughter was coming around for dinner, said our goodbyes just as the weather really picked up (typical) glorious sunshine.

The site is nice with friendly wardens and excellent facilities , we would definitely return

Then after our goodbyes it was off about 11.30 am for us and onto East Runton and a nice walk to the beach and views of Cromer pier, then onto Wells-next-sea with a lot going on as it was father’s day here in the UK. Walked to beach and wind surfing areas and the little train, then back in the van and off home thru Lincolnshire and Grantham to Sandiacre.

All in all a fab relaxing weekend again! Looking forward to the next time we are there.

Maybe take a look HERE, join the board and repin some of the pins

We have seen quite a few unique Motorhomes in New Zealand on our various trips there. They are keen on conversion but have a look at the video below, it blew our minds away WWWOOOWWW!!!

Can't remember if this one was 2007-8 or 2013

UPDATE Nov 2020, due to the fact that Flash is removed Dec 2020 all of these mobile views are replaced by responsive code, please see BLOG 143 for further info.

I have reworked all our motorhome travel websites to ensure they are in technical parlance "responsive embedded" and suitable for use on all mobile phones.

They always worked on laptops, macs , desktop pcs and tablets but were a little quirky on phones.

Why not try them out on your phone and let us know of anything we could do better, many thanks and happy motorhoming!

Whilst processing some of our old photos for our family tree I came across some reasonable old scenery pictures of our family holiday to the greek isalnd of crete way back when in 1988.

See the picture in the slideshow of the self catering apartments (Argo) we stayed in. Just off the very steep and dangerous beach outside Rethymon town. We walked back into the safe swimming area in the harbour with the boys. Also we hired both a jeep and a car to see lots more of the island, Knossos, Ag Nik, Sumarian Gorge, Phaistos, Mallia, Omolaos, Plains of Messara, North, central and southern areas (although the south is much less easier to travel around by road - boat mostly)

It was a fun family holiday when the boys were quite young and nice to remember almost 30 years ago!

Want to see the SLIDESHOW you need to page down a bit it is towards the end of these slideshows, thanks for looking
