Norfolk and its coastline are in a prime position for welcoming holidaymakers and owners alike. The fresh North Sea breeze combines with some of the most beautiful countryside you’ll see for an extra special location to escape to. 

The world-famous Norfolk Broads are unlike anything else in the UK, and with our parks offering easy access to these and the rest of Norfolk’s delights, becoming an owner here really does unlock a unique set of experiences that add to every lifestyle. Let’s take you through five reasons to buy a static caravan in Norfolk.

1. A property of your own at one of our parks

We serve the gems of Norfolk well with our four caravan parks. All positioned in the general Great Yarmouth area, they place our owners at the heart of what makes the county so great. Caister-on-Sea is to the north of town, a holiday park that was actually the UK’s first. A trendsetter from the off, it continues in this spirit to the present day. 

Slightly south is Seashore, neighbours with a beach that offers uninterrupted access to Great Yarmouth’s seafront. Close to the border with Suffolk sits Hopton, close to Gorleston-on-Sea and a glorious gateway to the sights and sounds of the Norfolk coast. Wild Duck Holiday Park offers a slightly different experience, in amongst the forested trees west of Great Yarmouth, and neighbours with the picturesque Broads.

2. Amenities to make life easy

Norfolk offers the perfect combination of coast and convenience. As much as you’ll be escaping the hustle and bustle, you’ll also be well-connected with all the amenities needed to make life easy.

Norfolk is famous as a great place to head to on holiday, and it’s just as suitable for a more permanent residence too. Combine the fantastic facilities at our Norfolk parks with the things to do in the surrounding area, and you’re onto a sure-fire winner. 

Great Yarmouth hosts everything from fitness clubs that keep your routine a healthy one to one of the world’s only permanent circuses that’s a constant draw for families far and wide. So you’ve got the convenience of a large town on your doorstep, and the rural retreat on its outskirts that you’ve no doubt been craving.

4. Coast and countryside, we’ve got it all

The possibilities are endless in Norfolk. Step outside of your own caravan to a world of options for the whole family. There is mile upon mile of coastline to be covered, as glorious on a wet and windy day as it is when the sun is shining. 

Marry this with the amusements, attractions and leisure available in Great Yarmouth and the surrounding towns and life never gets old here. There are loads of restaurants and pubs to discover, perfectly topping off a walk along the coast or in the countryside.

5. Great events in Great Yarmouth

Great Yarmouth’s calendar of events is never empty, making it a great place to head to for events with the family and friends you might have stay at your caravan. As well as some great pubs and restaurants, there’s great entertainment venues like the Britannia and St Georges Theatres in the town. For a sporting day out, head west to Norwich to see the city’s football club play. One of England’s most historic clubs, their Carrow Road home is a place every football afficionado should visit.
