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).

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.
