Clippesby Hall - 2013

 Clippesby Hall 2013

Warning - photo heavy, non crafting post

I have a few photos to share of our  camping trip to Norfolk last week

We stayed at a lovely site - Clippesby Hall

Here is the Hall, set in pretty gardens and situated at one end of the site ( it's a fairly big site)

Around the site :

There were a couple of grass tennis courts, Neil and Rob had some pretty close matches ( I did well just to return the ball, scored no points, but did have a laugh)

There was also a really large play area, with various equipment for all ages, bordering a football pitch

Our tent set-up :

The pitches are quite large and we were on an all-weather pitch, they are all immaculately kept and all the tents and caravans etc are nestled in little areas,  among the trees

Yes, we are back in the Bell tent, we sold the trailer last year - we didn't get on with it as well as we thought we would, I especially love my Bell tent and it is such a breeze to put up

The little seating and eating area to the side of the kitchen/utility tent, the windbreaker was a new addition to our supplies this year

All nice and cosy - barbecue time

Days out :

The boys took their bikes and scooters this year, we checked out all the local amenities and Great Yarmouth offered this fab indoor Skate Park, I would highly recommend it, the boys loved it and the guy who runs it was lovely.

Robbie - air-borne ( sorry for the blur - my camera does not like being indoors with moving objects)

Another great day out was Eaton Park in Norwich

One of the pretty gardens

You guessed it - there was also a skate park within the grounds, we left the boys here for a couple of hours, Neil and I went to play pitch and putt, also in the grounds of the park, and then we returned to take some photos of the boys  'doing their thing'

There are some things a mother does not need to see - ie your son flying through the air, doing all manner of tricks - over concrete

Heart in mouth, my nerves couldn't stand watching them for more than about ten minutes

Robbie balancing on the very edge of one of the bowls

And what did Neil and I do when the boys were scooting and BMXing ?

We played crazy golf, walked the sea front and generally just chilled out together

There were three Crazy golf courses on the front at Great Yarmouth, they were all really well kept - we love playing this silly game and generally find a course wherever we go

Neil seeking some much needed shade under one of the features of the course, we were extremely lucky with the weather and this day was particularly warm and sunny

And finally a couple of shots of 'my boys'



I know I am biased, but they are such good lads, I was so proud of them

I can take them anywhere, their manners are always impeccable and they are so helpful and loads of fun when we are away.

These photos are so rare too - its getting harder and harder to capture them without a goofy expression or a silly grin

Handsome little critters !!!


  1. It looks a lovely place for a holiday...So glad you had a good time, you and Neil deserve it, as you both work so hard for your family...great photos of the boys,xxx

  2. Lovely photos - especially the portraits at the end. If you're participating in my photography scavenger hunt this summer, crazy golf courses are great places to find the items.

  3. Looks a perfect place for the camping. Great photos. xxx
