Three Go To Norfolk - Planning

Planning and booking stage

Three? Yes. Me, Claire and Reggie the patador dog.

As the country starts to pull itself out of the Covid pandemic and lockdowns we are hoping that by mid-August we can get a holiday.

Rather than bother with going to foreign climes, we decided to stay in England. I looked for somewhere dog friendly and with an enclosed garden. We decided on Norfolk.

We have thought about the county before and have ended up in Devon. After the 2019 journey to and back from Devon, where we could have been south of Lyon in the same time (!) we have marked the South-West in August as a write-off. At least until I retire when we can go at times when the school aged children are not on holiday! It's the nature of my job I am afraid.

So Norfolk it is. A cottage with enclosed garden and mostly 10/10 reviews. I paid part of the cost with £99 by cashing in some Tesco Clubcard points (£33 in vouchers) and the rest of the deposit on dear old Tesco MasterCard. At least we'll earn some more points to spend as vouchers from that!

Booked through cottages.com on the Tesco Clubcard page.

Just in case we have a problem driving home after possible meetings with relatives I have booked a hotel near Ipswich for the night.

It's also dog friendly and at £38 still quite a bargain. As usual I have used booking.com with the free cancellation and no prepayment option. If we aren't going to use it, then I have to cancel a couple of days before we are booked.
