You may have noticed that Anorak loves nothing more than a modest break in one of Britain’s many beautiful and cheery seaside towns. Recently Laurie and Matt ventured to the delightful town of Walberswick, Suffolk, but were devastated to have missed the brutal competitiveness of the British Open Crabbing Championships. Fighting it out for the gold medal and £50 prize money, entrants use top secret bait to try and nab the heaviest crab during the 90min competition period. We also missed out on purchasing a commemorative “I caught crabs in Walberswick T-shirt” leaving our wardrobes utterly wanting for the rest of the year.

Penny’s Cottage is a lovely wee place next to the pub with bagfuls of local charm.
