Welcome to Pinewoods

Dear Guest,

Welcome to Pinewoods, part of the Holkham Estate situated on the north Norfolk coast. We are delighted that you have chosen to hire a holiday home at Pinewoods and hope you have a fabulous and memorable stay with us.

The following pages provide instructions on how to use the appliances within your holiday accommodation safely and important information regarding health and safety, emergencies and our flood risk advice. Please take a few minutes to read through this information.

We are proud to hold The David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award since 2000 for our continuing commitment to protecting and enhancing Britain’s natural environment. We hope that you can help us continue this. You may not have realised this but Norfolk is one of the driest areas of the UK, so although your comfort is our priority, your support is appreciated to help us conserve water. Gas and electricity are both included within the price of your holiday, similarly we ask that try not to waste energy. You will find a general waste bin bag, recycling waste bag and a glass waste bag within your accommodation. Please use these to split your waste and dispose of them in the appropriate bin found in the external refuse areas marked on the park map provided to you.

Families, dogs and wildlife are all part of what makes Pinewoods special and unique. Help us to look after the landscape and wildlife by disposing of waste in the bins provided, guarding against fire and using footpaths and cycle ways responsibly.

The park is located adjacent to the Holkham National Nature Reserve which covers about 3706 hectares from Wells-next-the-Sea to Burnham Overy and comprises a number of rare and precious habitats including salt marsh, sand dunes, pine woodland, beach and grazing marsh. It is renowned for biodiversity and home to thousands of species, many of which are rare. Please respect nesting birds, seals and other wildlife along your walks as disturbance is one of the biggest problems affecting their wellbeing. Although the nature reserve welcomes visitors, you will see signage which indicates where you are asked not to go in order to protect and conserve sensitive habitats and species.

If you are a dog owner then please keep your dogs on leads when on the park and also within wildlife nesting areas. Please clear up after your dog and place the bags in the dog disposal bins. Complimentary dog bags are provided on the main walks into the pinewoods and the beach.

If there is anything we can help you with, please do not hesitate to call our Reception and Holiday Sales Team on 01328 710439. Our Reception is open from 9am to 5pm daily. Outside these hours our Security Team, Dardan Security, will be available in the Security Office near Reception, their contact number is 07941 019782.

We do hope that you have a very enjoyable holiday with us at Pinewoods and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Best wishes

Darren Williams
General Manager, Pinewoods

About Pinewoods

Pinewoods has been welcoming holidaymakers for over 60 years. As an integral part of the wider Holkham Estate, we are lucky to have an amazing location, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the north Norfolk coast and adjacent to the Holkham National Nature Reserve. This special place has a range of environmental designations including being identified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

A bit of History

As with so much of the English countryside the look of the north Norfolk coast is an intimate blend, part wilderness and part working landscape. From Burnham Overy to Wells-next-the-Sea, the low-lying grazing marshes north of the coast road used to be tidal saltmarshes, separating offshore shingle and dune ridges from the main coastline. You wouldn’t know it now, but several centuries ago the tidal creeks were large enough to allow ships to load cargo from a staithe at Holkham village! From 1639 onwards a series of embankments were constructed by local landowners, including the Coke family of Holkham (later the Earls of Leicester). By the time the Wells embankment was completed in 1859 by the 2nd Earl of Leicester, about 800 hectares of saltmarsh had been converted to agricultural use. In the late 19th century, the 3rd Earl of Leicester planted pine trees on the dunes, creating a shelter-belt to protect the reclaimed farmland from wind-blown sand. Today this ribbon of mature woodland still separates the seascape from the farmscape.

Caring for our Environment

We have deliberately developed Pinewoods to be as sympathetic to the environment as possible to protect this unique, fragile and special area. This is very much an ongoing commitment, but here are a few things we have already achieved.

On the Spoonbill Drift Touring Park, the long grass between pitches and around the site is a deliberate design which not only provides demarcation between pitches, but also encourages wildlife. By rewilding areas we are helping grass and wildflowers to flourish, as well as encouraging birds, reptiles, bats and rare insects.

You’ll see that the toilet blocks here have a living roof which is very much in keeping with the natural design of this area. Living roofs serve several purposes for a building, such as absorbing rainwater, providing insulation and creating a habitat for wildlife. Inside, the toilet blocks are designed to be eco-friendly with:

  • Low energy and automatic lighting
  • Energy efficient hand dryers and ventilation
  • Water efficient pressure taps and
  • Water saving cisterns and urinals

We are rather proud of these toilets – and of the fact that they won a platinum prize in the Loo of the Year awards in 2019!

As you explore the park you will see that we have cladded the first of our buildings on the park to provide thermal insulation and weather resistance, and we have solar panels on our reception building. Make sure you look out for our bug hotels, which are a balanced ecosystem and provide numerous benefits not just for the individual flower beds, but for the environment as a whole.

A Special Location

Our site nestles behind pine-topped sand dunes at the edge of Wells beach with its’ iconic row of beach huts and is walking distance from the historic port of Wells-next-the-Sea. We are proud to provide a range of holiday accommodation enabling holiday home owners and holiday makers to experience the absolute beauty of our location.

The spectacular landscape designates the Norfolk Coast as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and we support the “AONB dark skies” by keeping lighting on the park to the absolute minimum, make sure you take time to look up and take in the stars without light pollution found in more populated areas of the UK.

As well as being in an AONB we benefit from having guardianship of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) in the centre of the park to the west and south of the saline lake, Abrahams Bosom. This attracts an enormous range of wildlife and there is a beautiful and largely unknown boardwalk which provides an exciting way to experience this nationally important location.

Holiday Home FAQs & Need to Knows

Contacting us during your stay:
Reception – 01328 710439
Security (out of hours) – 07941 019782

At Your Holiday Home

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Your holiday home is fitted with both a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide alarm for your safety. If either alarm gives a continuous tone you must evacuate immediately and contact Reception or Security.

If cooking accidentally sets the smoke alarm off, press the button in the middle of the alarm to quieten it for a short period. The alarm will then issue several beeps and return to its normal operation.

If either alarm is making short beeps, we will need to replace the batteries or the whole alarm. Please let us know via Reception or Security and we’ll sort this out for you.

Central Heating
Please use the dial on the thermostat to control the temperature. This is found either in the lounge, hallway or master bedroom. To help save energy please do not have the heating on and windows open at the same time!

Gas Supply
You’ll see that your holiday home has a twin gas cylinder supply and an automatic changeover valve. There is no need for you to touch this, in fact we ask you to please not touch! Our team will check your gas regularly and change it when necessary so there is always gas available for your use. If you have any issues please let Reception or Security know.

Fire
The north Norfolk weather can be rather bracing, but you can get cosy by the fire in your lounge area.

Electric Fires - The main switch for this is either nearby on the wall or in the cupboard. You can turn the fire on and off using the remote control but be aware that there is just one heat setting and the temperature cannot be changed.

Gas Fires - Switch on by pushing in the ignition dial and twisting it anti-clockwise. You should then feel a slight resistance. Twist the knob through this as this is what will cause the ignition. Repeat around 2 or 3 times. When the flame ignites, hold the dial in for 5-10 seconds. Then twist dial anti-clockwise to the desired heat setting. To turn off, twist the dial clockwise to the off position.

Cooker
Gas Hob - This is a normal domestic type and works in the same way. The ignition button is on the wall nearby and ensure this is switched on before you turn a selected knob anti-clockwise to the low flame position and hold in.

Press the ignition button then turn the knob to the desired heat. To turn off the burner turn the control knob fully clockwise.

Grill – Use the same procedure as the hob to light the grill. Ensure the grill door is kept open when in use.

Glass Cover – if your cooker has a glass cover, please make sure this is fully in the open position when trying to light the hob, oven or grill.

Outside Light
You’ll find the light switch next to the main light switch at the front door. Please turn off the light when not in use, and always turn off overnight, to save energy and to stop it annoying your neighbours!

Barbecues
Due to the high fire risk, disposable barbecues are not permitted. Properly constructed barbecues are permitted, but please stay safe by ensuring it is not sitting directly on the ground, it is away from anything flammable and ensuring that it is completely extinguished and cooled down before moving when you’ve finished.

Dogs
We welcome your four-legged friends and hope that they enjoy their holiday at Pinewoods too! A few house rules though – please keep your dog off all furniture and beds, do not leave them alone in your holiday home, and please ensure they are kept on a lead at all times when out on the park. We also have a dog walking area for you to enjoy, just to the south of Abraham’s Bosom Lake – just check the map for directions. We have designated dog waste bins located throughout the park and along the coastal path.

Waste
As part of WONDER – our estate wide sustainability and conservation action plan, we are taking great strides to reduce the amount of waste we all send to landfill and incineration, and in doing so vastly increasing recycling rates. Please ensure you separate your recycling from general waste and place in the appropriate bin in the refuse area.

Wi-Fi
Our local area is still catching up with provision of broadband and our system is not yet quite as good as we’d all like it to be! You can use our Wi-Fi for web browsing/emails/social media etc but to be fair and ensure that everyone has access to the service, we are sorry that streaming is not permitted.

Within your holiday home there is a white Wi-Fi booster by the TV, with the access code and login number on it. If you’re having trouble connecting to the booster, we suggest that you pull the black wire out of the back of the box, let it switch off completely for 5-10 minutes before plugging it back in. Alternatively, there is the park Wi-Fi: device setting - Pinewoods Holiday Park, password - pinewoods (all lower case and no spaces.)

We aim to offer an uninterrupted service but sometimes, due to factors beyond our control, reliability can be affected particularly during peak periods. For further information please refer to the Wi-Fi terms and conditions or call Reception or Security.

WONDER

We are encouraging all our guests to join us on our sustainability journey as part of the Holkham Estate’s sustainability and conservation agenda, which is called WONDER. Click here to see a film introducing how we, and the wider estate, will do things better, and we are planning lots of initiatives at Pinewoods which we will share with you.

This is not new for us - with our fragile, natural surroundings, conservation has been an essential part of what we do for many years. Since 1997 we have been the proud holders of the David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award. And we also achieved the David Bellamy award for being a Honey Bee Friendly park. In 2021 we are proud to have applied for the Green Tourism award scheme. This scheme is designed to encourage people to visit natural areas and minimise the impacts of tourism on the environment.

You too have a very important role to play on this sustainability journey - here are some tips on how you can help.

Conserving Energy
Reduce energy by switching off lights and electrical appliances when not in use and closing the windows if heating is on.

Give the car a rest
Leave the car behind, if only for one day. Instead of driving into Wells, you can enjoy the breath-taking 15-minute walk along the beach bank. There are many other beautiful local walks around this part of the Norfolk coast. One of our favourites is the leisurely stroll along Wells beach to nearby Holkham beach and then turning south into Holkham Park.

If you are feeling a bit more energetic, you can hire a bike from Holkham’s Cycle Hire Centre or Wells Bike Hire and explore the surrounding area which includes the Sustrans National Cycle Route 1.

To explore further afield, our local bus service runs along the coast from King’s Lynn and Hunstanton to Sheringham and stops at Wells Quay. For bus times see traveline.info

Reduce waste
Please sort your waste into recyclable and non-recyclable waste and put in the right bin in the refuse area. The bins are clearly labelled.

Be water wise
Turn off the water whilst brushing your teeth or shaving, don’t run the dishwasher or washing machine until it’s full, try to take shorter showers.

Respect nature
Help us to look after the landscape and wildlife by not littering, picking up after your dog, guarding against fire, being responsible with BBQs and using footpaths and cycle ways responsibly.

The Beach

With its row of pretty beach huts, Wells beach is one of the most iconic in the country. At low water, you’ll find mile upon mile of sands and shallow channels to enjoy. When the tide comes in, the beach is transformed into a harbour, with the channel suddenly busy with visiting yachts, fishing boats setting out for the day or returning with their catch, local small boats going out to fish as well as clouds of small sailing boats racing or cruising within the channel.

At the eastern edge of the beach is Wells RNLI lifeboat station which houses both an all-weather lifeboat and a small, fast inshore lifeboat. A brand-new boathouse is currently being built to house a new lifeboat, and we are enjoying watching this build unfold.

For all visitors’ safety, the beach is watched during the peak season by RNLI lifeguards and by volunteers at the Coastwatch lookout. If you fancy a swim, an area in front of the main beach away from moving boats is marked off by yellow buoys and clearly identified on the maps on the way to the beach.

For safety, always remember to check tide times and be sure to return to the beach-side of the main channel when the warning siren sounds or around four hours before high water. Please see signs and other notices posted at the beach entrance for more information. Click here for a detailed map and information produced by the RNLI about tidal safety at Wells.

Please note that dogs are not permitted on the first 200 yards of beach from the main entrance and need to be kept on a lead in other areas. Please check the signs as you come onto the beach. Keep your dog under close supervision and control and clean up after your dog using the many dog waste bins provided in the car park and along the track in the pinewoods.
