- Fishing getaways and wellness retreats at spacious Norfolk site
- A 35-minute drive from Norwich and 15 minutes from Snetterton Circuit
- Fishing, obstacle course, fitness classes and licensed café
Grab rod and reel, prepare for some serious ‘you time’, and park up for a few days at Old Buckenham Country Park, a family-friendly site less than five minutes’ drive from the Norfolk village of Old Buckenham.
Starting stays with a thorough explore of the 35-acre site is a must. There are two lakes to stumble upon, bug hotels to fascinate inquisitive kids and grownups, and a mile-long obstacle course with a path alongside it for running. Explores all done, opt in to some of the fitness classes available on site.
Fishers should take special note of those lakes, claiming a patch of shore to set up for a day of peaceful catching. Fish aren’t the only animals to track down either: twitchers won’t be able to keep from craning their necks, with eyes peeled for chickens (on the ground, not in the sky), ducks, geese, kingfishers, swans and owls.
That’s a lot to fill days, so be sure to spend evenings having relaxed moments next to the firepits dotted around site. When food starts beckoning, there are barbecues to borrow (if one hasn’t been brought from home) and pub grub at one of the Old Buckenham locals. A licensed café is open on site from Thursday to Sunday for sweet treats and drinks too, which should help keep energy and spirits up.
Open from 01/04/2021 to 31/10/2021

Anyone keen on craft booze may have found the ideal spot here. The site is 10 minutes’ drive from Elmtree Beers brewery and its on-site shop, and tours and tastings are to be had at English Whisky Co distillery, also 10 minutes away. If the vino is more appealing, it’s 35 minutes from base to Winbirri Vineyard for tours and tastings of reds, whites and sparkling wines.
Thirsts quenched, turn next to Snetterton Circuit (15 minutes) where – during well-timed stays – guests can join the crowds to watch the GT Cup final, Mini races, time attack trials and fireworks. Not able to travel for a race? Have a go on the circuit yourself, with track days and training days available for cars and motorbikes.
Those who prefer a slower pace to their holidays can skirt Snetterton and opt instead for leisurely days among exotic birds, ferocious beasties and peaceable pets at Banham Zoo (five minutes), or hanging about with the alpacas in the nearby town of Diss (15 minutes).
When some time away from rural bliss is required, a 35-minute drive will land guests in Norwich to explore castle and cathedral, stroll in stunning gardens, learn a bit about history at one of the many museums, or burn a hole in wallets with shopping at the Norwich Market or in high-street stores.
