Anyone got any tips for a child free weekend?

Child free I wouldn't go to East Anglia.
I'd go to the Lake District & hit some mountains.
Or Peaks/Dales if Lakes are too far.
Or even moors rambling on the downs further south.

Make sure you go out after dark and look up

If you're fixed on this area then I'd think about doing what you can uniquely do here. May I suggest hiring some kayaks & exploring the Broads? Down waterways where no motorboats allowed. Canoeman is said to be good.

Bird watching can be brilliant here, too, but may not be your thing. Cley Marshes good as both scenic & great for birding.

There's a B+B inside Cley Windpump, that's quite a scenic place to stay. My uncle & aunt loved it.

And watch 6 of Britains 300 Marsh Harriers flying over Cley and Saltbpuse marshes. Fantastic huge birds.

Lljkk I went for the old bakery as the windmill was full for one of the nights we wanted. But we are allowed to eat at the windmill so looking forward to it! Thanks for the tip off!
