Freezing at Lakeside!

Here we are at our winter weekend away at Lakeside Caravan Park in Norfolk. Our grassy pitch cost us £20 for a two-night stay plus £10 for the leccy (£5 refunded, unused).

A stone's throw from the village of Denver, and a couple of miles from the town of Downham Market, Lakeside has some superb coarse fishing on-site, with five lakes, and a private riverbank within a mile of the campsite. facilities are sparse here, but it has a small shop selling all things fishing, and the showers and toilets are clean.

The Bell pub is within walking distance in Denver, and offers decent food and a nice range of ales.

£6, will get you a cab to Downham Market, which has a small selection of pretty standard shops and is dominated by Tesco's and Morrison's who both have stores here. Interspersed between the charity shops are a couple of hidden gems, namely 'The Old Bookshop', a treasure trove for book lovers, and 'Tickled Pink' boutique; small, but well worth a visit.

Next to the park is a pay-and-play golf course. Not much of a fan myself, but it appears well cared for and has a driving range.

Across the road, we have Denver Mill, until recently a working mill but now home to the Blackstone Engine micro-pub, and the Millstone cafe. It was closed when we were there (28-30 Jan), but due to open in early Feb.

All in all, a very nice (and very chilled!) winter break.
