    October - over to the UK to see the grandchildren at end of month for school holidays.

    Question is - to cross early and visit Norfolk (never been) or west coast of Scotland ( many visits as Scottish !!! )

    Or stay home in the peaceful Correze ??

    What do you think ??

    Thanks for that !! Last visit to Scotland was in October and the weather was amazing so guess we would be lucky to repeat that !! Stayed for 14 years near Thurso but after 12 years in the South West and 10 years in France I do hate the cold !!

    Very interested in Norfolk but as have never spent time there would be grateful for folks advice on this area . Don't do crowds so if very busy it's not for me !!

    I would say visit Norfolk but then I'm just a little biased, It can be as quiet or busy as you like depending on where you go. Many places to see many things to do and loads of places to stay, if at all interested in history etc then Norwich has to be high on the to do list.

    Norfolk is a lovely county, my Daughter loved it so much as a child, that 3 years ago her and her husband and children moved there to live, they have boats on the Broads now, the best decision they have ever made, I would love to live there, some beautiful places, especially the beaches, some are remote, have a look at Sandringham ,The Queens Norfolk home is in the grounds near to the campsites, , you can go into Sandringham house, well worth a visit, beautiful campsite, have stayed there many times, can be crowded in school holidays, it is said that it is the healthiest county in England, renown for it`s longevity of it`s inhabitants. there are birds hides at Clay, seals at whittingham sands, think that is spelt correctly, the broads that is something else, have a look at Horning, Potter Heighman, then there`s Sheringham, Cromer, renown for its crabs, Great Yarmouth, you are spoilt for choice, enjoy which ever you choose.:thumb:

    Norfolk is well worth a visit! Plenty to do and see, Norwich is quite a nice city in the centre 'old' part. There are plenty of coastal places to visit, lots of old disused runways from the way. Steam railways and the like.

    On top of which, you really do need to experience your fuel economy rising to 50mpg:ROFLMAO:

    (Seriously, you may not get that - but you hardly use any fuel as it is so flat......but do watch the locals, especially on the country lanes! They stop for no man.....and mostly pass with eyes closed!)

    I spend a lot of time in both Norfolk and Suffolk collecting vegetables in my artic from farms.....Beautiful part of the country and one of the reasons for buying a MH, so I can get there to experience it properly.
    Plus....The people are lovely.

    Thanks folks for all your input :Smile: will let you know what we decide :)

    Norfolk looks good but being an adopted frenchie a bit worried by the parking comments. Never a problem here with 8 metres of motorhome but do find it more stressful in the UK.
