General

  • Peaceful and scenic park for adults only, half an hour from Norwich
  • Managed as a nature reserve and with its own willow-edged lake
  • Garage, riding stables and nature reserve within five minutes' walk

What does heaven look like to you? If you pictured a willow-edged lake, a wildlife haven and a kid-free zone, then welcome to your personal Shangri-La at Utopia Paradise Caravan Park, just outside the small Norfolk village of Lyng and half an hour’s drive from Norwich.

Utopia Paradise is a peaceful site in the Wensum valley, with waterside pitches and a peaceful vibe. It’s part of a nature reserve, so you’ll be sure to spot loads of birds around the green grounds and next to the lake.

If you want to explore the area around Utopia Paradise, riding stables and another nature reserve are within five minutes’ walk of the site. Dogs are welcome on site, so feel free to bring them on your rambles – just make sure to keep them on their lead.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, soothe your hungry soul at the bar-restaurant in Lyng or at one of the restaurants within 10 minutes’ drive of the site. If you prefer fending for yourself, barbecues are welcomed on site, so pick up some supplies in Lyng and get to grilling.

    Fabulous restful picturesque site with easy entrance in my opinion. The lake is a beautiful nature reserve and it was a joy to sit and rest there. Nice space between pitches and a relaxed atmosphere, possibly one of the nicest sites I've been to. Pub, The Fox, with great food in easy 5-10min walking distance and shop, tea and coffee shop, fabulous cakes! Suzan was so helpful, a very resourceful and resilient lady with a lovely humour, nothing was too much trouble. Good wifi, was able to watch the England game! Toilets and showers closed due to covid so can't comment on them, but I knew this when booking. About half hr drive to Norwich and boards trips, 1 hr to coast, Sea Palling was lovely. I will certainly return to this site.

Directions


Please do not go to Farman Close: this is the office address and has no entrance to the site. The site is at Richmond place, Lyng.

Travelling on the A47 from Dereham to Norwich, there is a slip road on the left signposted North Tuddenham. Take the slip road and leave the A47. When you reach the T-junction turn right and continue into Lyng (be careful: the satnav can send you the wrong way). At a staggered crossroad turn right and then turn left immediately past the shop. Drive slowly and look out for a road on your left past an old house. Continue up the drive up to our entrance.

Local attractions

Fishing fans should head to the fishery at Swanton Morley, 10 minutes’ drive from Utopia Paradise Caravan Park, to see if they can land themselves some carp, roach or pike from the lakes and rivers.

Utopia Paradise is 40 minutes from the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and less than an hour from the start of the Norfolk coast path, so get your walking boots on.

If you’d prefer a less outdoorsy experience, get your fix of stately homes and spectacular gardens at Blickling Estate, Felbrigg Hall, Brancaster Estate and Oxburgh Hall, all within 45 minutes’ drive of Utopia Paradise. A 30-minute drive will bring you to the city of Norwich, where you can roam its medieval streets, visit the castle, explore its museums and galleries, then wear out your credit card in the shops and restaurants.

Banham Zoo is less than 45 minutes from Utopia Paradise- you can also take a trip to the Thursford Steam Museum, 15 minutes’ drive from the site, where they can take a ride on the stunning fairground carousel and the gondola.
