Welcome

Situated right at the heart of the North Norfolk coast, we have been welcoming holidaymakers and families for over 60 years. We strive for high standards across every area of the park, and are proud holders of the David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award. Our picturesque site lies behind pine-topped sand-dunes at the edge of Wells beach, just a short walk (or miniature train ride) from the bustling historic port of Wells-next-the-Sea. We offer a wide range of holiday lodges and static caravans for private sale or rent, as well as pitches for touring caravans and motor homes along with comprehensive and up-to-date facilities. There is an abundance of things to do and places to visit close by.
