hmmm, Yarmouth, nice, Yarmouth, nice... finding it hard to reconcile those terms wink.

Lol! I think exactly the same and was hoping nobody would reinforce my doubts!!

Going with family - not my choice, but would like somewhere nice(ish) to stay

I live 10 miles away & I'm struggling too

Can you stay nearer the Broads?

If you stay a little bit out of Yarmouth there are some lovely places, Yarmouth itself? No

I like Yarmouth.

KatyMac Fri 21-Jun-13 23:07:46

Do you Usual, which bit?

HoneyDragon Fri 21-Jun-13 23:07:46

I'll take something self catering near a beach in Wells, Cromer or Yarmouth please whilst your all here wink

usualsuspect Fri 21-Jun-13 23:11:53

All of it, I love the beach.

And the snails. I'm not snobby about seaside towns though.

HoneyDragon Fri 21-Jun-13 23:12:45

Me neither Usual. I love proper seaside holidays

chickensaladagain Fri 21-Jun-13 23:13:33

I love the snails

I've a pic of me aged six on the snails and dds the same age!

I love traditional seaside towns, with arcades and fairs and candy floss. and tacky gift shops.

I went to Whitby last year and it was all poncy shabby chic shite shops.

KatyMac Fri 21-Jun-13 23:15:28

You see, Shopping is trciky for parking and the range of shops is limited & the market is quite sad

The out of town shopping is badly thought out & you could have to park 4 different times to visit a range of shops

Restaurants are limited, & frankly boring

The theatre is badly laid out

The cinema is nice but parking is tricky again; the beach is OK but I prefer Sea Palling

usualsuspect Fri 21-Jun-13 23:17:07

And dont get me started on Salcombe in Devon, not a hot dog to be had anywhere.

usualsuspect Fri 21-Jun-13 23:22:30

I don't want a restaurant at the seaside.

I want proper seaside fish and chips.

KatyMac Fri 21-Jun-13 23:23:36

\but it's not the seaside for me - it's town

HoneyDragon Fri 21-Jun-13 23:26:15

Katy.

Do you not Usual and I to come visit you? Is that what your saying, eh?

What sort of accommodation are you after? How about Gorleston, other side of river from Great Yarmouth?

Coconutty Costa Rica Fri 21-Jun-13 23:33:10

Ooh, chips off yarmouth market......

KatyMac Fri 21-Jun-13 23:34:43

You can visit me

Stay where I suggested & I'll send you off on tours round Wroxham Barns, Bewilderwood, Norwich, restaurants in Gorleston, Coltishall & Ingaham

usualsuspect Fri 21-Jun-13 23:36:43

The last time I went to Yarmouth we stayed at the park resort at California Cliffs.

Fab beach just across the road.

We're going to gorleston this year, but plan to explore Norfolk, taking my dc on the snail ride is definitely on my list of things to do though, loved that ride when I was little!
