Christmas at Boundary Stables
The quiet openness of the Norfolk countryside is a perfect place to stay if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas at home. There’s plenty of winter wildlife to see, top quality pubs and restaurants to eat in, and miles and miles of deserted beach for walking the dogs. And for a real treat, there’s the famous Thursford Christmas Spectacular, just an hour’s drive from Happisburgh.
Over the last 40 years, the little town of Thursford has captured the nation’s heart as the embodiment of Christmas glamour and glitz. Running from November 10th to December 23rd with a cast of 130 professional singers, dancers, and musicians, the Thursford Christmas Spectacular is the biggest Christmas show in the country.
For some, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a pantomime. As well as many amateur productions around the county, there are some fantastic professional shows on offer. You can see Peter Pan at Sheringham Little Theatre from December 13th to January 1st, or Cinderella at King’s Lynn Corn Exchange from December 8th to 31st.
The Theatre Royal, Norwich, which began life in 1731 as The White Swan Inn (home to the Norwich Company of Comedians), will be presenting Jack and the Beanstalk from December 13th to January 15th. Winning the Most Welcoming Theatre Award in 2004 was testimony to the warm humanitarian values of the theatrical company that, in 1772, founded the Fund for Decrepit Actors!
When you arrive at Boundary Stables, you’ll find a real, decorated Christmas tree in your cottage, as well as a luxury Christmas welcome pack. The warm, cosy cottages are equipped with all the comforts and conveniences of home, with everything you need to prepare a traditional Christmas meal. However, if you prefer to enjoy the festive hospitality of a local pub or restaurant, there are many establishments near to Happisburgh that offer a Christmas Day dinner.
