According to SkyScanner, New York was the most popular holiday destination for Brits in 2019. But forget vising the Big Apple! This month we want to tell you why Norfolk should be your next destination to explore.

1. Shorter journey time

Located on the east coast, Norfolk is well connected by road, rail and even air, so no time wasted, delayed in airports and sitting on a long-haul flight to New York. Less time travelling means more time to make the most of your break. And with no weight restrictions on your luggage you can simply load up the car with everything you need, with no extra hassle or cost! Enjoy the views as you arrive into Nelson’s county!

2. An endorphin-boosting dose of fresh air

Renowned for its open landscape, relaxed, laidback lifestyle, beaches, and the big open skies, many find themselves returning to Norfolk time and time again. Picturesque endless views are a true contrast to the towering skyscrapers of New York, making it ideal for exploring.

Proud that Norfolk offers a happier, healthier way of life, with its great outdoors, it is also bursting at the seams with history and culture and we hope you enjoy discovering it as much as we do.

3. Impressive stately homes

Forget Central Park, come and explore the vast Norfolk Estates around Fring. With royalty on our doorstop, Sandringham House is the much-loved country retreat of her Majesty the Queen and has been the private home of four generations of British Monarchs since 1862. Or visit Houghton Hall, home to the Marquess of Cholmondeley and his wife Rose Cholmondeley and admire the art exhibit of one of the most influential sculptures, Anish Kapoor, currently on display through the estate grounds and historic interiors of Houghton Hall.

4. Wildlife aplenty and hands-on sailing

Maybe boating is your thing – we can’t offer a ferry ride around the Statue of Liberty, but we can offer nautical and wildlife adventures off the Norfolk coastline to see rare birds and resident grey and common seal colonies.

5. You can bring your pet pooch!

You may have a four-legged friend to think about too, making a UK staycation undoubtedly better than a holiday abroad. Our properties are dog friendly, with large enclosed gardens and plenty of space for them to run around, making it a fun get-away for them too – a lot better than being stuck in a kennel!

For a hassle-free holiday with no need to wrangle with foreign currency, no worrying about whether you have packed the correct plug adapter or panicking whether you have forgotten your passport, book a staycation at Fring and take all that stress away!
