Things are Happening in Norfolk this June!

It’s easy to drive through Burnham Market and think we’re a sleepy North Norfolk village, relaxing in the summer sunshine. But we’re happy to let you know that Burnham Market really comes alive from June onwards, and with the summer holidays coming up fast, it’s always good to have something lined up on the calendar to see and do.

We’ve put together a list of our favourite things that are coming up near us, and as always if you need a room to sleep in or a place to refuel and unwind, we are happy to accommodate! Just call us on 01328 738321 or visit our website www.the-nelson.com.

Beer Gardens, Bookings and Beautiful Flowers!

We can barely believe it is May already.  It seems like just yesterday that we were talking about Christmas and all our festive events.  But this week, we have been taking advantage of the unseasonable warm spell that we had and have been out in our garden areas having a spring clean.

With the nights now drawing out and more and more of that yellow ball in the sky shining down on us, we have switched to full on summer mode and have one thing on our minds…beer gardens!

As our visitors will know, we have an outdoor area to the side of our Inn that has benches and tables for you to sit at with a cold drink and lining this are hedges which we have been trimming back to make sure we get optimum growth. We have also added fencing to make it more secluded. To the back of our property, we have a little grassy area which is for our guests staying in our rooms.  We’ve pruned and cut and have been planning which plants to buy and where they should go all week and we’re very excited to see what we end up with.

And just between us and you, we also have a new enclosed garden area being completed so stay tuned for more information!

As always, we are ready for walkers, dog walkers and cyclists to pop by and all are welcome in our bar and restaurant.  If you are part of a local walking group and you would like to book a table for a particular expedition, please feel free to call us for our latest menus and availability.

If you are like us and your thought are already on the summer holidays, why not book our new Nelsons Nook for a long weekend?  We’ve been talking about it a lot and our recent guests have all given it glowing recommendations so we’re happy to say that our hard work has paid off!

Check out photos, information and availability here.

The Nelsons Nook

You may have seen on our Facebook and Twitter that we have been talking about The Nelsons Nook and we are excited to say that we are now ready to tell you all about it.

We have been looking for a way to extend The Nelson for a while and we came up with the idea of turning a nearby building into a holiday apartment for our guests.

The building used to be an urban armour shop and most recently a hairdresser, so we had plenty to work with and as we love making use of local trade, we hired local builders and got to work.

They were amazing and completed the work in just 3 months which means that The Nelsons Nook is ready to take bookings for the summer!

It has two bedrooms, one bunk bed room and a king bed, so can comfortably sleep two adults and two children and has one shower room and a fully equipped kitchen.

Local photographer Andy Langley pictures hang inside, and we decided on a blue and white colour scheme to tie in with our nautical theme and also to create a cool and calming place for you to relax.

The Nook is situated close to Ulph church (Nelsons father was rector here) and next to our country inn and t is just a two-minute walk from the village centre.
