Out in the woods, in between the Norfolk Broads and a country village is where you’ll find Wild Duck Holiday Park. The secluded woodland setting sets it apart from other holiday parks in the region and it’s still less than 5 miles from the sea. As soon as you drive in you are amongst the trees, with open grassy areas opening up on the left, splashy fountains and lakes directly ahead and the entertainment piazza further off to the right.
The piazza itself is a relatively new development with a footbridge over the stream leading into an open space at the centre of the pool, shop, restaurants and ShowBar. At the far end, a pedestrian (and duck) crossing takes you over the road to the multi-sports court, playground and sports range, which serves as both the park’s archery range and fencing hall.
The park is situated right by the edge of the picturesque Norfolk Broads, a protected National Park. The waterways here are best explored from the water and there’s no shortage of river cruises and boat hires that’ll let you discover it all, a little bit more each time you come to stay.
The nearest beach is at Gorleston-on-Sea just under 5 miles away, but if you go a little further north you can just as easily reach the seafront at Great Yarmouth. Not only does this town have its own permanent-built circus arena (the only one left in the UK) but you can also visit the Sea Life Centre, the local horse racing course, the golf course and ride all the rides and roller-coasters at the pleasure beach.
