It’s official we are moving! On Thursday, September 27 we will leave Beverly, MA to Nofolk, UK. Yep a permanent move! Who knows where we’ll be a few years from now. Could be back in the US or in another interested European destination -you’ll have to keep following me to see. We had a nice few years at Crescent Avenue Beverly, but Nils’ work and future advancements for our family send us away.
Norfolk is a great destination at any time of the year. Miles of unspoiled coastline,
internationally important nature reserves and amazing wildlife, hundreds of picturesque villages, historic market towns, fantastic seaside resorts including the bright lights of Great Yarmouth, The Broads – Britain’s magical waterland, and Norwich, a fantastic heritage, entertainment and shopping city, are just some of the delights on offer.
Holt is a lovely rural Georgian North Norfolk town with plenty of unusual shops and surrounded by well-wooded parks. Having been burnt down in 1708, Holt presents a comparatively modern appearance, with a spacious market place, dominated by a fine cross of Clipsham stone to commemorate the war dead. A jumble of streets and alleyways fanout from the main High Street, offering plenty of facilities including pubs, cafes, galleries, andshops to enjoy. There is a lovely country park just to the south of Holt and the North Norfolk Railway (the poppy line) runs from Holt station to Sheringham. Holt is particularly attractive at Christmas, when all the shops adourn themselves in pretty white fairy lights, making for a really festive wonderland.

A must during your visit to Holt has to be a journey on the North Norfolk Railway. Also known as the Poppy Line, a steam train takes its passengers from Holt station through some of North Norfolk’s most stunning countryside, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, to the Victorian seaside town of Sheringham.

And I just learned of a LAVENDAR farm in Nofolk – to say that I’m super excited about that is an understatement!
Stay tuned as once we arrive, I’ll be taking photos like a crazy lady!
