Day out in Holt

Recently me and my boyfriend James decided to visit Holt one Sunday afternoon for something to do. Holt is a small market town in Norfolk and is about a half an hour drive from where I live. Little did we know, most of the shops in Holt are closed on a Sunday, as well as the fact that Cromer Carnival was on nearby, Holt was totally dead. We still had a nice time though.

Whenever I visit Holt, I HAVE to go to Byfords. Byfords is thought to be the oldest building in Holt, with their cellar dating back to the 15th century. It used to be a hardware shop back in the early 1900's and is now a café and B&B. The one thing that brings me there is the cake. Their cake is amazing, I try and have something different every time, and I am yet to find a cake that I don't like! Their Fridge cake is THE BEST. As it was lunch time, I also decided to have some chips as well as a slice of coffee sponge and a teapot full of green tea. They were all delicious.

After lunch, we decided to walk to Holt Country Park, as many of the shops were closed. This area is abundant with nature, we even saw some cows grazing in the distance! After getting lost, we finally found our way and went on a nice 5 mile walk along a few of the routes. There are quite a few routes to choose from and you can pick up a trail map in the visitor centre.

I had a lovely day in Holt, and think it will be nice to go back on a Saturday or during the week and have a look around all the lovely shops that they have in the area, and of course, stop off for another piece of cake!
