General

Food fans rejoice: there are ten different food and drink outlets at the award-winning seaside park Searles Leisure Resort in Hunstanton, which dishes up tasty treats from steak in a lakeside setting to a Norfolk breakfast buffet at Smoky Jo’s. Better book for at least ten days then, to sample a different one daily.

The spacious level pitches around the park take up to eight people and can fit all sizes of tents, folding campers and tourers; pitches also come with free leisure passes and access to the shower blocks with free hot water, underfloor heating and even a bit of music as you lather up.

Elsewhere on site there’s a well-stocked shop, a play area, indoor and outdoor pools, a golf course with driving range and a beauty salon for pitching up in style.

Kids can jest about with on-site entertainer Barry the Jester or take part in the park activities for ages from two to teen, with a full programme of evening entertainment on hand for all the family. Not sure what’s best to pick? Have a word with the friendly Searles wardens for a point in the right direction.

Searles Leisure Resort is open all year round and dogs are welcome: they can also let off steam at Hunstanton’s main beach a couple of minutes’ walk away from the park, which allows dogs on the sands apart from during the summer months (July to August).
