Enjoy quality, romantic, couples’ alone time in Norfolk
Have you and your partner been looking for some quality alone time, or an adventure to rekindle the spark? Maybe you just want to relax with your loved one, or extend your honeymoon with a few more romantic days away. If this sounds perfect to you, Norfolk is the ideal destination. Not only will the pure countryside air reinvigorate you, but the views are spectacular, the rivers are stunning and the Norfolk stately homes are not to be missed.
1. Visit Blickling Hall for 17th century charm
Blickling Hall is so idyllic that it has become a popular wedding venue. With its impressive antique book collection, its intricate tapestries and remarkable sculptures, you could easily spend an entire day at this Jacobean hall and not run out of things to do. Be organised and pack a romantic picnic to take with you and enjoy your food on the Hall’s beautiful grounds. Afterwards, take a leisurely stroll through the woodland and along the lakeside.
2. Visit the Gazebo at Sheringham Park for breath-taking views
Sheringham Park is a perfect destination for couples with a love of walking and rambling. There are a variety of routes and views, and the truly adventurous can even climb the gazebo to see views of the North Norfolk coastline that have been described as “the best view in Norfolk”. If you’re planning a memorable proposal, this is certainly a worthy setting to host it.
3. Visit Holkham Beach for a walk along the beach
There are a number of beaches that you could take advantage of in Norfolk, and we encourage you to visit as many as possible. But if you have to pick one, we would recommend Holkham Beach. This popular beach destination is so picturesque that it has starred in a number of music videos and movies, including Shakespeare in Love. Make the effort to wake up early one morning, pack a breakfast, sit on the sand dunes and watch the sun rise over the sea. Afterwards, enjoy the surrounding woodland and keep an eye out for the local wildlife.
4. Visit Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden for a dose of nature
What self-respecting nature-loving couple visits Norfolk without visiting Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden? This destination offers an impressive 130 acres of ancient woodland to explore and enjoy. Located just nine miles from Norwich in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, you can take in the views, indulge in a boat trip and, if you’re a bird lover, take in a great venue for birdwatching. Keep an eye out for the 950-year old King Oak and, when you need to take the weight off your feet, pop by the tearoom for a treat and a drink. Escape modern life, take in the ancient surroundings and keep an eye out for all the wildlife. This is the perfect addition to any romantic day out.
