14 beautiful beach cottages

24 Feb 2017

One of the big benefits of Muddy tottering its way into so many counties (er, 17 since you asked!) is that we have a raft of on-the-ground experts, squirrelling out the coolest, most useful stuff for the rest of us to plunder. Case in point – beach cottages. Thought about renting one this summer? Yeah me too. So allow me to lay before you a sandy smorgasbord from the Muddy regional editors – 14 beautiful beach properties for the bucket and spade brigade.

16 of the best riverside holiday cottages

24 Feb 2017

Beach holidays in Britain always come with that anxious niggle at the back of your head – will it tank down for the whole week? Well, how about an inland lake or river holiday as an alternative? The Muddy editors who happen go to be landlocked (*sob**) have scoured their counties for some stonking rental properties with their own little piece of liquid heaven to tempt you throughout spring and summer. Tempted?

Muddy stays: The Kings Head, Letheringsett

15 Feb 2017

When temperatures stubbornly refuse to waiver above zero for almost a week, it’s time for a treat – and there’s nothing like a lavish hotel stay in the countryside to put the world back on its axis.

Having reviewed lunch at the handsome Kings Head in Letheringsett back in October, I was thrilled to be invited back for dinner, bed and breakfast (I must be doing something right). No sooner had the idea been mooted, I was packed and driving up to Letheringsett, just one mile from Holt, quicker than you could say “your room is ready, Madam”.

Special Muddy deal on forest holidays

12 Jan 2017

In a dry January when the weather has turned totally pants and half-term break feels forever away, I take solace by gorging myself on potential holidays. Hot summer holidays in exotic climes with Rufus Sewell (if he’ll only stop moaning on and on about how he desires me), cool city breaks, gorgeous cottages in rugged climes for walking hols with my galpals and for family time in the UK, something luxe but active, rural but not too holiday campish.

*The* Christmas present to buy your bloke

29 Nov 2016

If you’ve no idea what to buy the bloke in your house (or blokess), then read this hilarious post written by Hero over at Muddy Bucks/Oxon who joined Muddy Northants for a race around Silverstone – you call this work girls, seriously?! Neither of them are petrol heads but both loved the experience all the same. Take it away Hero (and Anna-Lou):

8 of the best cosy pubs

17 Nov 2016

Winter: brrrrr. Cold, dark, damp… Despite the twinkly lights and the alcohol-fueled Christmas parties, this time of year isn’t always kind weather-wise. Thankfully, Norfolk is stuffed like a Turkey with cosy pubs to retreat to – open fires and hot cider at the ready. So, pick up a paper, a loved one and (or) a dog, and bunker down in one of these beauties.

Try Toronto for a city break

5 Nov 2016

Toronto might not be top of the list for North American city breaks – I mean, there’s New York just down the coast (well, quite a way down but, y’know), or DC with its museums a bit further down still; there’s West Coast cities like Seattle and Vancouver with the ocean and the mountains, and Montreal with its French vibe and nightlife. And then there’s Toronto, with its CN Tower – tallest freestanding structure in the world, doncha know – and well, and…  um…

The thing is, I think Toronto is a perfect city to visit.
