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.

    Wonderful quiet and peaceful campsite with a very friendly and helpful owner. Lyng is a lovely little village with a great pub for meals out. Nice walks from the site in beautiful countryside. All in all, made our first outing with our new motorhome a great success. We definitely recommend this site and will be back.

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.
