So last weekend I spent a few luxurious days in Dream Lodge Group‘s Norfolk park. We brought it as part of a package deal that they offer regularly at live shows and on their website. It was £499 for four nights in a Signature lodge, which was one of the best lodges in their range.
It was a girls only break away with my mum, auntie and nan so there was plenty of alcohol stocked up when I arrived on the first night. The location of the park is out in the sticks and you’d definitely need a car to and from the park and the local town area. On the first night, I had a big catch up with my family that normally consists of having twenty (or more like one hundred) questions fired at me all at once. It’s always expected and I wouldn’t change it for the world. The lodge was beautiful and it certainly felt like a home and not that typical feeling of being in a mobile home. The interiors had a floral and clean design, with lots of space and open planning. I was exhausted from the full day of work and travel so we had a glass of fizzy rose and then hit the hay.
We woke up at around 9.30am to chuck on a few clothes and get my nails done. I had gel nails again which I’m becoming a bit fan of. The first full day was spent in the local town of North Walsham, shopping in various places including lots of charity shops. I certainly get my love of charity shop from my nan as she is the ultimate charity shopper. She can sniff out a bargain and swim amongst all the rubbish to find a really nice outfit. I was treated to and brought a few items of which will go up in another blog post in the near future. I’ve yet to actually go charity shopping in London and I’m actually surprised because there’s probably a lot of expensive designer brands hidden away in many London charity shops. After shopping till we dropped, we made our back into the park and fired up the hot tub. The prosecco bottles were popping and we certainly did not get drunk.
That night we went out to The Olive Tree restaurant which is award-winning and is situated inside the park, by the pool, gym and spa facilities. The food was delicious and the staff were welcoming and friendly. After heading back to the lodge, we relaxed in the lounge before going to bed.
The next day we headed over to a place called Sea Palling beach in Waxham to hopefully see the iconic seal beach after being recommend by Emily, the spa therapist. The weather by this point though had turned very wet and windy. We were unlucky to have not seen any seals but we got soaked in the process so you win some, you lose some. Afterwards, we did a little more shopping and had lunch in a lovely pub overlooking the Norfolk broads before heading back to the lodge to use the hot tub again. We stayed in that night and had a takeaway. We also watched the Eurovision and let’s just say I’m never watching such a fixed show AGAIN! (Remind me next year not to)
On the final day we headed into another small town but because it was a Sunday, a few shops were closed so we couldn’t take full advantage of the area. However nan was happy with a few charity shops being open and we had a nice cafe lunch before going back to the lodge to get ready for a meal at the pub opposite the park called The Bluebell. It was a yummy dinner and we played the local quiz that came round after.
