North Norfolk is the perfect holiday destination for the whole family

23rd January 2018

Top of many lists when it comes to choosing a holiday destination is finding one that will appeal to the whole family. This can be more challenging than it first seems, especially with so many interests to cater for. At Woodland Holiday Park we have built our holiday park around the idea of creating the ideal family holiday base and we believe our park’s location close to the North Norfolk coast makes it the perfect holiday destination for the whole family.

These are just some of the reasons why we believe North Norfolk is the perfect holiday destination for the whole family.

Family friendly beaches

Beaches are almost always popular with every member of the whole family. Older teenagers and adults enjoy sunbathing on hot, sunny days while younger children can build sandcastles and paddle in the sea. On cooler days, beaches offer the perfect place for family walks or to do traditional seaside activities like crabbing. In North Norfolk we are spoilt for choice when it comes to stunning beaches that are family friendly. Not only do we enjoy miles of sandy beaches that are ideal for sunbathing on or building sandcastles, but along the coast there are lots of beach activities that will appeal to all members of the family such as surfing or horse riding.

Accessible walking routes

The high number of interesting and accessible walking routes in North Norfolk makes it an ideal place for families to explore on foot. Walking is great for families as it provides an opportunity for fresh air and gentle exercise, as well as bonding time. North Norfolk has a wide variety of walking routes, from coastal paths to country walks, which together with its relatively flat terrain makes it an ideal place for walkers.

The wildlife

Children young and old, as well as adults, enjoy North Norfolk’s wildlife. North Norfolk is well known for having the largest seal colony in England. Located at Blakeney Point, which is easily accessible from Woodland Holiday Park, the colony includes Common and Grey Seals that captivate visitors of all ages. Along with seals, North Norfolk is home to many rare birds that make it a prime location for bird watching holidays. You don’t even have to leave our holiday park to appreciate the local wildlife as many animals can be spotted during a walk through our onsite nature trail, including a number of beautiful deer that live on our site.

Norwich shopping

Within an easy drive from our holiday park is the region’s major city, Norwich. This city attracts visitors from throughout the UK and many come for the shopping. Norwich has a wide range of shops from well-known high street brands to a variety of independent shops. The department shop Jarrold is one of Norwich’s flagship shops that has been operating for over 200 years and still remains privately owned. Throughout the Norwich Lanes there a number of small independent shops, while the Royal Arcade includes a large toy shop that is always a hit with children!

Even dogs are welcome

What makes North Norfolk unique as a family destination is that the whole family is welcome – including pet dogs. At our holiday park dogs are welcome and many beaches, pubs and cafes throughout the region welcome dogs as well. This means that North Norfolk really is the perfect destination for every member of the family.
