B&B at Norfolk

After the monsoon last October in a trailer tent, Caroline and I decided that we would treat our self at the end of the year to a night in B&B rather than risk it again. Really glad we did as the wind this time was very very strong Friday night and all day Saturday.

The start of our weekend: I drop call Caroline on her mobile (yes she has one but it is always off) !! she only turns it on to get my drop call when I pay at the toll, this works really well normally, but this time I get "unable to connect you" try later....... :-( OMG what now I was thinking that Caroline had arrived early and was in a out of signal area not knowing I was going into the tunnel. I tried and tried and tried but same thing, I was now on the M11 when thankfully she flashed her lights to let me know she had caught up. Tip for the day: Charge your mobile battery before long journey's! LOL

The showground was really nice, two rings inside, three rings outside sadly lacking grass as it has been so dry, it was a bit bumpy to run on, the show organisers had done a really good job filling in some holes.
Onto the B&B Saturday night: I done the postcode on TomTom which thankfully took us straight to the door in just over 10 minutes. We had already walked the dogs so we fed them in the van while we signed in with the land lady Dawn. Dawn showed us to our room and recommended the Pub across the road for an evening meal, we arranged with her to have breakfast at 7:15am on Sunday. After a quick freshen up we headed for Dinner which was lovely and very reasonably priced.

Pansthorne Bed & Breakfast ( ) is situated in the idyllic Norfolk village of South Lopham. Our unique ground floor cottage rooms have been sympathetically converted from old farm outbuildings with individual entrances onto a courtyard. All four rooms are spacious with en-suite shower rooms, complimentary beverage trays and individual heating. We offer the combination of high quality accommodation and a relaxing and informal stay in this lovely part of South Norfolk.

Sunday: We got up and fed the dogs at 5:30am so we could leave them before their walk, then had a nice cup of Tea in our room. The walk that Dawn suggested to us was next door, you just went through the gate and kept walking and walking, the moon was still out when we went out, the sun was coming up as we walked back, the dogs had a fab time.

As we settled the dogs back in the vans, Dawn asked fried or poached eggs with your full English, what a way to start the day all washed down with fresh coffee or a pot of Tea.
Thank you Dawn for a great stay. Hope the show goes a head again next year as we will definitely be back.
