Places to visit
Keeping the children occupied during the holidays can often be challenging, especially as you can’t always rely on the weather. We have recently put a Fantastic Five… Norfolk Nature trail together which you might be fun to do as a family.
Here are some family favourites in Norfolk:
Snettisham Park (9 miles from Congham). A working farm offering a chance to bottle feed a lamb, collect fresh farm eggs, ride ponies or go on a deer safari. Depending on the time of year that you visit, there is also a chance to see lambs being born and stags shedding their antlers or pumpkin carving in October. This attraction comes highly recommended by us, as a great day out for families.
Pensthorpe Natural Park (18 miles). This Half Term they will offering children of all ages a chance to make creepy crawlies in the spooky craft making. Or buzzing around on a self-guided trail, building a den in Wildrootz and make a your feathered friends a bird feeder to take away with you. There is plenty to keep you occupied in the Hootz House (an epic indoor adventure)
BeWILDerwood (47 miles). A huge, award winning forest of family fun and outdoor adventure! A wild and imaginative adventure park with magical treehouses. Lots to see and explore, well worth a visit for a family day out.
Extreeme Adventure (9 miles). A brilliant high ropes course built in the tallest trees in Eastern England offering hours of adrenaline rushing fun for children aged 10 and over (there is a crèche for younger ones). In 2018 a new Quad trek was launched for over 16 year olds – an hour long adventure through the forest.
Dinosaur Adventure (35 miles). A great day out, even for the Parentsasarus! A dinosaur trail, Raptor Races, Deer safari, Dinomite indoor and outdoor play areas and during October half term there is a 50% discount on tickets for anyone turning up in fancy dress (see their website for t&c’s)
Holkham Hall (20 miles).
Not to mention the vast expanse of beaches on the North Norfolk Coast. These can be fun even in winter, why not fly a kite (available at reception) or collect pebbles to paint at home!
