Castaways is an ideal setting for a great value family-friendly bucket and spade holiday by the sea. For those are looking for a quiet and relaxing break with stunning views of the North Norfolk coast and miles of coastal walks, then Castaways is the ideal base for that 'home from home' experience.
Visit the clubhouse and let your hair down with a drink, and have some fun at the arcade with a pool table, dart board and even live entertainment during the school holidays. You can even take your four-legged friend with you. There is also a restaurant at the front of the clubhouse, serving freshly cooked food, anything from steaks to traditional pub grub not forgetting younger guests with a children’s menu. Eat in or take away options are available.
The children’s play area is situated at the front of the house in a fenced area where the children are safe to play. Parents should supervise their children at all times. There’s plenty to do including a climbing tower and climbing wall for the older ones or swings and a spring bouncer.
The shop sells everything from milk and newspapers to those little knick-knacks you take home as souvenirs.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
