Top 5 things to do near Caister-on-Sea and on park

  • Share on Facebook

Caister-on-Sea near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, is a holiday park that’s full of history, having first been established as a holiday destination in 1906. With its rich heritage, modern facilities and local attractions, there’s tonnes to do when visiting Caister-on-Sea, so we asked the park's General Manager Gary Villiers to pick out his top five things to do here.

1. Explore the Norfolk Broads

1. Explore the Norfolk Broads

When in Norfolk, you’ve got to see the Norfolk Broads National Park. You could do a nice boat trip on the Broads or visit a lovely country pub and take a walk and watch the boats go by. If you’re feeling a bit more active you can go paddleboarding here too, or you can just sit in the pub and watch people paddleboard and fall in the water – both of those options are really good!

2. Try out the Adventure Village

We’ve got the Adventure Village, so you can hang out for the day, do The Jump and throw yourself off the six-metre board onto the big inflatable bag, watch some entertainment on the outdoor stage, maybe catch a movie. You can do a bit of archery, bounce on the bungee trampolines and have an aerial adventure, or just watch the kids running around enjoying themselves while you have a nice picnic on one of the benches out there.

Indoors, younger children will be in-and-out of the Funzone soft play and the ball pit, they can do Pottery Creations and make some slime. It’s nice to have a few indoor activities up your sleeve too.

3. See the seals

We are just down the road – a 20-minute drive away – from The Horsey Grey Seals Colony. You might see seals at any time of the year, but if you want to see the babies it’s more likely early or late in the year.

4. Visit the beach

The star of our show is the beach. There’s miles and miles and miles of virtually pristine beach in both directions. You can set off around the Norfolk Coastal Path if you fancy a bit of a walk, or have a tread through the dunes. Even at the height of summer it feels like you’ve more or less got the beach to yourself. There’s a lot of open spaces in this part of the world. The beach is the reason why they built this place in 1906.

5. Spend time with your family

Of course the ultimate thing to do on a caravan holiday is to play board games as a family, get the cards out, all those good things. That’s what caravan holidays are for really.

What do you love about Caister-on-Sea?

I love the history of the park, I love that it’s over 100 years old and we’re standing on the shoulders of giants so to speak. The hundreds of thousands of people that have come to Caister for fun for over 100 years is incredible! It’s reinvented itself so many times. We are very much a very family-oriented park, and everyone I talk to when I’m walking around meeting holidaymakers, they say ‘oh yeah I’ve been coming here for 20 years because my nan and granddad came here for the last 30 years before that’. But I also love that we’re keeping it modern, and we have lots of lovely facilities too.

I love the beach, I love the sea, I’m very blessed that I come to the seaside every day for a job. If you’d have asked seven-year-old me if that’s something I’d quite like to do growing up in South London, I wouldn’t have even known you were allowed to go to the seaside every day!

Let2offset - make no site fee payments until 2031

Let2offset is a contractual lettings product that offers eligible owners a guaranteed letting income at a preferential rate (calculated each year) in exchange for a stipulated number of letting breaks. It also allows eligible owners to pay their site fees and receive their letting income in 12 equal monthly instalments; the monthly site fee amount charged by Haven will be after deduction of the letting income.

‘Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031’ is available at 33 Haven parks excluding Burnham, Cardigan View, Far Grange, Garreg Wen, Lydstep Beach, Riviere Sands and Seaview.  The letting income received will vary by make, model and location. The monthly site fee payment does not include running costs e.g. utilities, rates & insurance.

“Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” is applicable to new and existing customer purchases of new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed or equivalent or superior grade holiday home purchases made through Haven where customers have also signed up to Haven’s Let2offset contract. It is not applicable to private sales and cannot be used in conjunction with our free Site Fee promotion.  It is available across 40% of eligible Parks and applies when letting a new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home (or equivalent or superior grade for 15 weeks.

An example of how “Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” operates under Let2offset is the purchase of an Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home at Primrose Valley with a monthly site fee of £585.00 (includes purchasing discount of £45) and monthly letting income of £803.67. The monthly difference equates to £218.67, which will be credited to the owner's account. Both letting income and site fees are subject to yearly pricing reviews and the monthly site fee costs and letting income shown in the example are based on 2024 figures.

Modelled assumptions on expected annual site fee and letting income charges over the 7-year lettable life of the Atlas Sahara 3 Bed indicate that under Let2offset it is anticipated that these customers will continue to receive a monthly credit during this period, however, this is not guaranteed. The modelled assumptions are based on the historical performance of Haven over the past 5 years of trading.
