Wild Duck: The perfect setting for true R&R

Great Britain is known for its diverse landscape – stunning coastlines to lush countrysides, lakes and rivers to beaches and piers. Norfolk is a county which encapsulates that perfectly but as it’s on the mid-Eastern coast facing the North Sea, you may not have ventured that way. But if you’re looking for a British holiday offering the best of the British landscape then look no further.

With leafy forest trails and secret wooded clearings, our Wild Duck Holiday Park in Belton, Norfolk delivers just that. Not only is it situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, it’s also our only woodland park, which makes it something pretty special. Surrounded by endless greenery and a picturesque lake at its heart, Wild Duck is the perfect hidden retreat – whether it’s used as a base for visiting the local attractions, or simply for some much-needed R&R.

Whatever the plan, there’s something to suit all.

The Broads

All aboard the Norfolk Broads! A man-made National Park with a wide network of rivers and lakes provides some of the prettiest scenery in the UK and it’s just 20 minutes away. Dotted along the 125 miles of waterways are charming villages and towns where you can stop off for a spot of lunch and unbelievably, it’s the only National Park with a city. Hire a boat, rent out some bikes, canoe down the water or simply walk; there are plenty of ways to explore.

RSPB Berney Marshes

Within a 35-minute drive is RSPB Berney Marshes, an area of outstanding natural beauty perfect for bird watching. These protected grasslands are home to many species and are absolutely stunning. Being in such close proximity to the Broads means there are plenty of activities throughout the year including boat trips and walks. The Marshes are also conveniently located next to Burgh Castle, one of the best-preserved Roman monuments in Britain. History buffs will enjoy immersing themselves in the story of this third century fort.

By the coast

If you fancy a day at the beach, the county has some of the best coastlines in the world, from miles of golden sand to pebbled bays. A 20-minute drive away is arguably the most famous beach, Great Yarmouth, popular due to its traditional beach resort features. As well as 15 miles of sand stretching out in front of seaside amusements and quirky beach shops, there are two piers, Britannia Pier and The Wellington Pier for a spot of sight-seeing.

For a quieter, more secluded beach visit, Wells-On-Sea is a great choice. Cute, pastel coloured beach huts are dotted along the boardwalk and the beach is accessible via woodland, giving a breath-taking reveal when you emerge on the sand. If you’re lucky, you may even see a seal or two playing in the shallows.

R&R

And if you just want to spend time relaxing on your well-earned break, Wild Duck’s accommodation options provide an ideal home away from home. From our traditional caravans, to glamping safari tents, start your day reading the paper in bed, then throw open the door to the rustle of trees and chiming birds. Spend an afternoon rambling along a nature trail or play a round of crazy golf, the choice is yours. The peaceful setting provides space to relax and unwind away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, with the same Haven favourites available day in, day out, if you should need them.
