Time to book your New Year holiday

Posted 03/01/2017

2017 is here, which means it is time to start making plans for the next 12 months. For many families, this is the time of year when they start looking ahead and thinking about upcoming holidays. Whether you’re planning a short spring break or a long summer holiday there are many reasons why we believe that North Norfolk is the perfect place for your holiday.

Here are just a few reasons why we think you should book a trip to North Norfolk this year.

Great beaches

The North Norfolk coast is home to some of the best beaches the UK has to offer. Not only do we have an abundance of scenic sandy beaches, but many areas are safe to swim in as well. In summer our beaches draw visitors from all over the world and are a fantastic place to spend the day relaxing, building sandcastles and paddling in the water. While our beaches are stunning in summer, throughout the year they are the perfect place to spend days walking and relaxing and have the advantage of less crowds in spring, autumn and winter.

Scenic walks

Whether wandering through woodlands or along cliffs, North Norfolk has lots of scenic walks that will appeal to all members of the family. You can hike part of the famous Coastal Path, which covers the entire North Norfolk coast and features many of the best sights the region has to offer; alternatively, you can find your own walk and cover quiet country lanes and stop off at traditional pubs for something to eat and drink. At Woodland Holiday Park we have our own woodland area, so that our guests can go for walks without even needing to leave the park.

Wildlife and nature

Our rural location makes North Norfolk the ideal place for nature lovers. From unique species of birds to the rare red squirrel, this area has lots of wildlife that will appeal to both young and old. North Norfolk is also home to the UK’s largest colony of Grey and Common Seals, and daily boat trips take visitors to see these amazing animals in their natural habitat.

Traditional towns and villages

Another popular attraction of North Norfolk is our many traditional towns and villages. Some of our most well-known seaside towns, such as Sheringham and Cromer are only a short distance from Woodland Holiday Park and are popular with visitors all year round. We are also not far from Holt and Wells next the Sea, both of which attract tourists from across the UK with their old-fashioned English charm.


Norfolk is known as Nelson country as it was here that the English war hero was born and raised. It is no surprise then that North Norfolk, the area he spent much of his life, has a lot of history associated with Admiral Nelson. As well as this, North Norfolk has many stately homes, from the Royal Sandringham Estate, which the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge call home, to privately owned but open to the public, Holkham Hall.

These are just some of the sights and attractions that North Norfolk has to offer, but why not book your 2017 holiday to Woodland Holiday Park and discover the region for yourself?
