Places to visit

Keeping the children occupied during half term in October 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 and activities for this half term, some are looking a little bit spooky!
Pensthorpe Natural Park (18 miles from Congham). This Half Term they will offering children of all ages a chance to “Bee a Nature Explorer.” 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 from Congham). 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. There is the glorious glowing Lantern Parade every day after dark during half term and special Halloween activities throughout the day.

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).

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. During half term PrimEvil is available.

Holkham Hall (20 miles). Hocus Pocus from 27th – 30th October, is a “spooktacular” event for children of all ages.


Don’t forget that children stay for free when sharing their parents room, just pay for meals as taken. We offer children’s high tea at 6pm and we have an array of games and DvD’s for children of all ages. Family swimming times available twice a day. Call us to book a room on 01485 600250
