Caring for each other — and our surroundings.
Not only do we go the extra mile for our owners, but also our landscapes and wildlife. After all, they’re what make our park such an amazing place to tour and camp.
As you’ll know, we have some seal colonies resident very nearby — they’ve even been spotted in our sand dunes and find their way onto our neighbouring beach quite frequently! Our park team has been specially trained and educated on how to keep the pups safe by the local seal rescue.
The Broads — and beyond.
Four miles from our luxury caravan and holiday park is one of the jewels in Norfolk’s crown — the Norfolk Broads National Park. 125 miles of undulating countryside and waterways, teeming with wildlife and dotted with picture-postcard towns and chocolate-box villages.
May we recommend a trip to the gorgeous ‘capital of the Broads’, Wroxham & Hoveton? With boats for hire and no shortage of independent cafés, pubs, restaurants and shops, it’s a real Norfolk day out.
Make sure to also head to Horning, a picturesque waterland broadland village, as well as the How Hill Estate and its Edwardian thatched house. If you’re partial, the Woodfordes Brewery in Woodbastwick is a fascinating reminder of Norfolk’s brewing pedigree.
Fully-equipped pitches for an awesome east Norfolk camping getaway.
Grass, glorious grass. Our electric and non-electric camping and touring areas are all grass and completely flat — hardly surprising for Norfolk!
With parking next to all of our pitches and units, an on-park shop, toilets, laundry rooms and kids’ play areas, you can start making memories of a lifetime right away.
Our friendly on-park team can’t wait to welcome you. Whether you’re after their advice on local restaurants or beach recommendations, nothing’s too much trouble!
Unlimited fun for four-legged family members.
There’s something for every family member in East Norfolk, including the furry ones. With more coast and countryside walks than you can shake a chasing stick at, they’ll definitely be tired out and ready for a nap!
The Sea Palling circular walking route is one of our personal recommendations. As well as taking far-reaching views of the Broads, you’ll pass Eccles-Juxta-Mare — a mediaeval village that was lost to coastal erosion in the 16th century. For a quick refreshment afterwards, we’d recommend calling in at the dog-friendly Reefs Bar. Their Sunday carvery is to die for!
Our furry friends make family getaways at Waxham Sands so special, so don't forget to bring them along.
A few of our favourite things to do near Sea Palling, Horsey & Great Yarmouth.
Welcome to our lovely local area. Whether you’re up for a road trip to Cromer or just feel like a leisurely stroll for a bite to eat at The Great Barn, there’s no shortage of activities.
There’s so much to do — too much to list, in fact — but here are just a few of our favourite local places and activities you should check out if you’re staying at our luxury caravan and holiday park near Great Yarmouth.
The Great Barn — this recently-refurbished, grade I-listed thatched Tudor barn is just on our doorstep in Waxham — a real slice of local heritage and history. It’s the longest one of its kind in the county, featuring lively exhibitions and even boasting its own café serving up delicious homemade delicacies.
Sea Palling — just up the road is an award-winning, Blue Flag beach. Clean, tidy, golden and dog-friendly, it’s the perfect backdrop for a crisp morning stroll or afternoon saunter.
Seal spotting at Horsey — take a short walk into the delightful village of Horsey and its beach. We’d recommend a visit to Brograve Mill or the National Trust Horsey Windpump whilst looking out over Horsey Mere. That’s followed, of course, by a refreshment at the Nelson Head pub.
Norfolk Broads National Park — from Wroxham to Horning, this gorgeous wildlife-filled waterway network has no shortage of beautiful little villages, each bursting with character (and opportunities for boat hire!).
Great Yarmouth — where do we start? Yarmouth’s a true British seaside treasure trove of fun. Make sure to head to SEA LIFE Aquarium for the opportunity to marvel at incredible sea creatures, and also check out The Marine Parade — also known as the Golden Mile — offering endless amusements and activities.
Museum of the Broads — steep yourselves in Norfolk history with a short, 15-minute drive to Stalham Staithe. Discover the stories of the Broads; the people, wildlife and the boats.
Thrigby Hall Museum Gardens — just 10 miles down the road and past Filby Broad is an incredible range of animals, including snow leopards, red pandas and gibbons, as well as a range of treetop and tunnel walks. Without a doubt a real local family favourite.
