Feeling Festive at The Nelson…

We don’t know about you, but this year seems to have flown by.  We’re lucky that our little village always seems to have something going on; from Guinness at the Rugby back in March, planting our spring flowers in April and the World Cup in July, right through the heat wave of this summer to the switching on of the Christmas lights in November and you guys have been there with us at every step. Our Instagram has grown this year too and we’re loving that so many of you want to see what we’re up to!

So now we are firmly in December, we have lit the fires, hung the decorations and have started to make plans for how we are going to celebrate this festive season!

Sunday 23rd December, we’re holding our annual Christmas Quiz from 8 pm, with food still available that evening, however, we would suggest booking a table as soon as you can as this event always pulls in a good turnout!  Questions will be from all categories so make sure you brush up on your general knowledge as well as your Christmas trivia.

New Years’ Eve has a family theme this year, with board games and free nibbles provided – we’re still finalising a few details so make sure that you keep an eye on our Facebook events page for more details over the next few weeks.

Another good reason to ‘watch this space’ is that we are cooking up some amazing deals on our rooms for 2019 so if you are looking for the perfect place to stay in North Norfolk at just the right price, keep your eyes on our Facebook for updates and get your stay booked.

If you haven’t had a chance to visit us yet, make sure you do before the end of 2018 and sample our new menu items.  Our chefs have created a stunning menu using only the best locally sourced ingredients for you to try and there really is nowhere more festive than sipping on a cold drink in our warm bar.  We’re dog-friendly too, so bring your four-legged friend in for a free dog biscuit and some fuss!

Visit Norfolk in Winter?  Here’s why you should!

Now you may have been to Norfolk in the summer and seen what it has to offer in the sunshine, but don’t be put off coming to us in the winter time!  There is nothing more beautiful than a freshly frosted, dew-covered field or looking out over a moody coastline whilst eating hot chips.

  1. The Beauty of a Winter Beach…

Sure, beaches are known as a summer thing, but us locals know that a winter beach is just as beautiful.  We love grabbing our parkas and wellies and going for a stroll along one of the many beaches that we are lucky to be near.  Wells-Next-the-Sea is simply stunning in all weathers and the beach hut colours really pop against a grey sky!  Wrap up warm and head down – it really does help clear the mind!

  1. The Switching on of the Lights…

Our little village is famous for its light switch on and if you came to see us under the glorious sunshine this year, you could be forgiven for thinking that it couldn’t look any more beautiful – but you would be wrong.  The trees are lined with twinkling lights and Christmas cheer all around makes Burnham Market the best place to come to do your Christmas Shopping!  And it won’t be long till you can enjoy a drink sat around our Christmas tree as well!  The big switch on this year is November 17th, with a Christmas market and World Food stalls, it’s a great day out for all to get you in the Festive Spirit!

  1. Our Winter Menu…

As you know, we pride ourselves on using local, seasonal produce in our menus and this winter is no exception.  Our chefs are busy planning our menus and items can change from week to week so make sure that you come in and see what they have created!  There is nothing quite like a hot plate of food on a cold and frosty day!

  1. Snug as a Bug…

Don’t fancy driving home or want to book in and stay in Burnham a few days?  No problem!  Our rooms are cosy warm and have the softest and snuggest bedding so you can wrap up and enjoy a good night’s sleep! Follow up with a hearty cooked breakfast and you’re all set! With dog-friendly accommodation and bar, a restaurant that serves only the best local grown seasonal food and beautiful boutiques just around the corner, we are the perfect hub to begin your Winter Norfolk adventure!
