Adventures by the beach; in Bacton, Norfolk

Gandalf the VW is parked up on a gem of a CL (small 5 van site associated with the Caravan and Motorhome club). I’m almost loathed to share this one- it’s a proper gem. But in the spirit of “Sharing is Caring” , here goes!

We’re staying at Buttercup Meadow, a large field with no hook up or facilities, just a tap, loo disposal point and bins. It’s just £11pn, and best of all, Whilst we can’t SEE the sea, we can hear the waves rolling in- just the other side of the raised bank which borders the site, and offers some protection from the sea breeze.

There is a gate which leads down a sandy drive and within 5 mins (less probably!) walk you are greeted with the most gorgeous Sandy dog friendly beach we’ve seen in Norfolk. And we’ve been to most of the East Anglian beaches during our decade + here. It is superb!

We arrived just after 12:30, stopping on route at nearby Happisburgh (pronounced Hazeburg) with its picture perfect red stripy lighthouse and wonderful fishmonger.

We stocked up on fresh fish for dinner, arrived on site, set up, had lunch and then had the rest of the afternoon on the beach, reading, drinking mojitos, larking around in the sea and snoozing. Just what two exhausted music teachers needed!

Dinner was a delicious fish bbq, accompanied by a spectacular sunset and full moon combo!

Sadly this was just a one nighter – we absolutely could have spent a week here- especially given the weather and the fact our solar panel was performing a treat. But- we were up and away very early Friday morning as Lydia had some very special Bridesmaid duties to enjoy at her best friends hen do in Stratford Upon Avon, which is where Gandalf transported her to in the afternoon.

Gandalf’s had a makeover 😉 💕

Stratford was lots of fun and I came home promising to take Keefy and Jazz sometime soon for a mini break.

Until next time- which is VERY SOON!

😉
