Taking a trip with your partner is one of the best ways to reconnect, get away from the stresses of everyday life, and have a jolly good time together. It can also be a great way to celebrate a special occasion, perhaps an anniversary, a birthday, or a promotion at work. It’s a chance to have that much-cherished privacy and time-out, which a hectic lifestyle hardly allows.

Will you be planning a romantic trip anytime soon? You’ll need to make sure that the details are spot-on. Here are some recommendations when choosing hotels in Norfolk plus other tips to make your holiday positively memorable:

Set the mood with a romantic place to stay.

When it comes to romantic holidays, you need to choose the right accommodation to stay in. A cosy, quiet room with a great view would be ideal, perfect to distance yourselves from your daily grind.
You might even want to talk to the hotel manager or booking representative if you have any special requests, such as rose petals on the bed and champagne (a very romantic gesture –  it’s a special occasion after all!)

Plan some delicious meals.

Make sure that the hotel has a good restaurant so you can enjoy some top meals throughout your stay (particularly if the two of you are real foodies). Check out the restaurant’s menu, and see if you can also dine al fresco on fine weather days – always a nice treat. During the warmer months it is always a nice touch if you get the chance to bask in the sun or have a feast under the stars with the beach nearby. A nightcap is always welcome before you contentedly sleep off your feast.

Explore the place!

Your choice of accommodation should ideally be near tourist attractions or local sights, so you can have lots of things to do throughout the trip. Wonderful Norfolk hotels like the The George Hotel at Cley has views over the saltmarshes and out to sea. The hotel is perfectly placed to enjoy the nature reserves of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust, such as Cley Marshes where you can enjoy birdwatching. There’s also the stretch of Cley beach and Blakeney Point where you can enjoy a stroll along the coastline and might even be lucky to spot some the seals in the water.

If you prefer the vibrancy of local villages and market towns, you’ll be spoilt for choice. There’s also a plethora of things to do and outdoor activities nearby ranging from canoeing, horse riding, and sailing. At the end of your tiring day, you can rest in your cosy room, dive under the covers of the crisp linens and reflect on your memorable Norfolk stay. Memories are made in Norfolk!
