Norfolk Holiday Park- European Style

Someone described this place as the closest you can get to continental camping in the UK and I know just what they mean!

This was our 2021 holiday when we couldn’t face covid tests to travel. We camped here for a week but as well as camping there are also choices of chalets etc.

It’s set in the most gorgeous forest, so scenic with wonderful trails and amazing views. It has a very relaxed vibe with lots of facilities.

There is an indoor and outdoor pool (things were working different due to covid when we went so cannot really give details), but we used both. Outside one was cold but my daughter still loved it. There is low key entertainment outside in the main area on an evening, a band, a magican. There is a restaurant with pub style food, a pizza place and a couple of food vans around the central plaza, A nice atmosphere.

The site is very big but didn't feel crowded at all. There are various fields for camping and ours was further away from the main plaza. We liked it this way and used our bikes to get there.

Many playground options dotted about and a great one in the woods. There is also a trim trail, running routes and cycling routes. We cycled down past the steam train track to the beach one day (pebble wild beach no swimming). The children spent a long time just throwing stones into the sea. The camp is such a lovely place to walk around, lots of different areas and if you are camping the pitches are large and great facilities.

A short drive away are the many beaches of North Norfolk. This trip we visited Cromer and Mundesley, both lovely beaches. You are however spoilt for choice in Norfolk for beaches of all kinds. Example of places to visit in the surrounding area: * Seal Tour at Blakeney. We loved going out in the boat and having a stop to walk around Blakeney point and visit the old lighthouse. * Visit the wonderful Bewilderwood. A truly magical day out. Set in woodland, treehouses, wiggly wires, secret bridges and magical adventure, boat trips and so much more! Book tickets in advance. *Holkham House is another wonderful day out with cycle routes, a lake with boats, deer, high wires and a great adventure playground to name a few.

* Beaches- too many to mention but we loved Wells next to the sea and Mundesley. The former you can catch a little train from town to the beach (I heard a rumour this has now closed). The latter is a small but perfectly formed little town with a good crazy golf. Or enjoy miles and miles of sand at a beach like Holkham. Honestly there are so many to choose from. * North Norfolk Railway- take a steam train ride. * Go crabbing at Blakeney * Hire a kayak or paddle board at Wells. We love this part of the country and would certainly stay of Kellingheath again!
