Family Stays at Half-Term

It’s the first holiday since the New Year and we have some great breaks to tempt you to a UK city escape in Norwich or a stay close by in the Norfolk countryside. So whether you are looking for family accommodation during half-term or a romantic stay because of Valentine’s Day, we can help you decide.


In Norwich city centre, The Maids Head Hotel offers family rooms and regularly brings out special deals which include meals, so keep an eye on their website to stay up to date with all the latest offers. 

Other central stays include; Holiday Inn Norwich City and three wonderfully welcoming B&Bs; Number 17Wedgewood House and perfect for a family; Gothic House which has just two bedrooms (one twin, one double).Take it from us, these B&Bs also serve up some truly scrumptious local produce breakfasts - there's no better way to start a day of sightseeing and shopping in Norwich!  

Waveney River Centre in the Broads has luxury lodges (some with outdoor hot tubs), bedrooms and self-catering apartments/houses which are lovely for families.Enjoy living by the river, sweeping countryside views, being close to nature yet not too far from Norwich to enjoy the thrills of a city.  


For a romantic city break filled with tasty food, shopping and sightseeing, book a room at the Maids Head Hotel; it has some spacious, newly refurbished suites perfect for a romantic weekend some with wonderful views of the Cathedral Quarter. The delightful Assembly House also offers stylish boutique rooms with bed and breakfast, magnificent bathrooms and some even a small garden or balcony! Both are located right in the heart of Norwich.

Outside Norwich

If you fancy staying in the beautiful Norfolk countryside then coming into Norwich for a couple of day visits is easily done.


Potter’s Resort has not one, but two offers to choose from: their Two Night Half Term Family Weekend Break from Saturday 11th February, or make a week of it and book their Four Night Half Term Family Midweek Break from Monday 13th February.

Nothing says a family stay like a family-run country house! Broom Hall Country Hotel is set in 15 acres of English country garden and parkland, situated in the heart of Norfolk’s Breckland countryside.

Who says a holiday with the extended family can’t be fun? Spixworth Hall Cottages is a magnificent place to stay if you’re inviting the whole family for a getaway – perfect for catching up with everyone. The cottage can sleep 3 – 12 people.


The Norfolk Mead has an 'Overnight Indulgence package' for two which includes a 2-course dinner followed by a relaxing stay in one of their deluxe rooms. Wake up to a full á la carte breakfast the following day then unwind with a 60-minute massage or facial – a perfect Valentine’s treat too! The Mead's location on the edge of the Broads is also great for those who love a country walk - and it's only 6 miles from Norwich.

If you enjoy a bit of independence on a short break, try 106 The Malthouse – a smart 1-bedroom self-catering apartment within an old mill re-development close the river Wensum. A convenient distance from Norwich train station and the city centre, it makes this a good choice especially for those arriving on public transport. It also has a large private outdoor terrace to make the most of any spring sunshine!

Those of you who are looking to have some quality time (minus the kids) should check out Ferry Marina and hire a holiday cruiser to see the Broads in the most romantic way possible!
