Norfolk celebrates a sensational summer, as figures from the UK’s largest holiday cottage company, cottages.com, show an increase in bookings to the region year on year*, and a record breaking Bank Holiday across the country.
Some of the most popular destinations within Norfolk have seen an uplift of almost two thirds for 2017 in the peak summer weeks, proving the county is more popular than ever for UK holidaymakers. Experiencing an uplift of 56%, Great Yarmouth has seen one of cottages.com’s highest uplift in bookings for arrivals this summer, along with Wroxham (+17%), Wells-next-theSea (+13%) and Horning (+11%).
The region’s spectacular countryside and unspoilt coastlines could be to thank for the surge in holiday bookings, with growing numbers choosing to explore the UK this summer.
