My Little Weekend Away

Heeey my lovelies ♥
Last weekend Matt and I went to Center Parcs for a lovely long weekend with Matt's best friend and his girlfriend. We had such a great little break away and we couldn't have picked a better weekend to go as the weather was perfect! If you haven't been to Center Parcs before it is a little resort, if you like, where you can stay in lodges some of which are amazing (the treehouses especially however they don't have these at Elveden) and there are so many indoor and outdoor activities to do however if you aren't really into anything like that then I know you'll still love it as I'm most definitely not the most sporty girl there is haha
On the Sunday we decided to head down to Wroxham to hire out a boat on the Norfolk Broads for the day. It's such a delightful little town and literally every shop you passed had 'Roys' at the beginning - Roy's Toys, Roy Zone.. So of course me being the nosey parker that I am I went into a shop and asked why and the lady said that they are a very wealthy family and the majority of people who lived in the area would be unemployed if it wasn't for them, which I was thought was quite a nice little fact! Once we had our boat we made our way onto the next village which was Horning. On the way there were sooo many beautiful houses alongside the river and I've now decided that this would be the perfect retirement! Halfway through our journey to Horning we came across this adorable little ice cream boat and of course we had to moor up and have an ice cream, kind of had to really didn't we?! Once we arrived at our destination we had lunch at The Swan Inn which was a lovely, quaint pub which served the most delicious food and we had a jug (or 3) of Pimms *note to self alcohol and being on a boat does not mix too well* Sunday was definitely the best day out of the 4 weather-wise and it was also my favourite - although I'm not loving the fact that I got sunburnt and am now peeling :(
I'm shocked that they actually had faith in me to steer the boat haha
Matt and I have a slight addiction to VW Camper Van, in the words of Matt: 'How smart is this camper?!'
Have you ever been to Center Parcs/Norfolk Broads before?
What's your favourite destination for a short break?
P.S I do apologise for the picture heavy post!


  1. Hahahah that pic of you steering the boat is so cute, can just imagine you capsizing the thing hehee. I loveee the Norfolk broads, it's crazy how big all the houses are isn't it? I didn't actually realise that's where you were but omg I loved driving the boat too! That's what us four need to do one day is hire one of those houses at the edge of the river :p xxxxxxx

    1. Hahaha I was over taking the other boats and all sorts ;) I know they're so beautiful! Oooo I'd love that, I actually know a website for the rental of them! Let's do etttttt :) xxxxxxxxxxx
