This isn't Merely a Suffolk holiday park – it's a Suffolk holiday park with a whole heap to do. If the two fishing lakes at Carlton Meres Holiday Park in Suffolk don't have you wriggling in anticipation, all manner of other options are on site to lure you in.
Free activities and entertainment are held in high season (weekends from March to October), or there's splashing in the indoor pool for relaxed types, and a fitness suite and tennis court for the energetic. Or might you prefer wandering peaceably around the park's splendid woodland setting and woodland walk...?
The kids are sorted too – always an amicable option on holiday – with an adventure playground to keep them swinging about for hours, and the arts and crafts, karaoke, disco and outdoor activities of the kids' club which runs on weekends and during school holidays (small charge applies).
Guests of the roomy pitches at Carlton Meres have access to shower and toilet blocks, waste disposal points and fresh water points.

After they've whirled around on site for a while, take the kids to the coast at Aldeburgh (20 minutes' drive) or Southwold (25 minutes) for days on the beach, buying freshly caught fish on the sands and enviously eyeing up the beach huts.
Walberswick (25 minutes) is also well worth a look, to birdwatch among its heath and marshlands, catch crabs on its beach or to take the ferry across the Blyth back to Southwold; you might spy some celebrity residents in this popular town too...
Both Felixstowe and Lowestoft are each within 45 minutes for additional Suffolk seaside trips; some time should be spent at Lowestoft for the Pleasurewood Theme Park too – and from there one can move onto the seaside at Great Yarmouth, an hour from the site, and the rest of the Norfolk coast or the Suffolk and Norfolk Broads.
Closer to home, take a trip to fab Framlington Castle (15 minutes) – where Mary Tudor was proclaimed queen, fact fans – and to Orford Castle (25 minutes), both managed by English Heritage and both rather spectacular.
See also, for wildlife-loving sprogs, the 2,000+ residents at Norfolk's Banham Zoo, just over an hour away, and walking among the parrots, mammals and reptiles of African safari park Africa Alive! at Kessingland (30 minutes), a colourful day out sure to have them squawking.
