Norfolk’s Searles Leisure Resort says that Brit-loving families are putting the park on course for the busiest ever summer in its 50-plus year history.

But although they may be opting for a staycation, Searles reports that guests are doing anything but staying still – thanks to an investment of over £1m in a raft of new activities.

The multi-award winning Hunstanton park says it has met its deadline of having all of the extra facilities up and running by the start of the school holidays.

They include an innovative new indoor “splash zone” with a host of different water play features designed to appeal to young and old alike.

The curtain has also gone up on a new outdoor fitness park for people aged 14-plus which provides an exciting array of gymnastic challenges in the fresh air.

In addition, and aimed largely at children, Searles has created a play park where the emphasis is on adventure activities in a safe and supervised environment.

In response to demand from guests, says managing director Paul Searle, the park is now buzzing with more all-action opportunities than ever for families.

Water zorbing, indoor and outdoor pools, all-weather sports pitches, a gym, fishing, karts, tennis, archery and bowling are already on the park’s have-a-go list.

“I think that many people now realise that, compared with going abroad, British park holidays offer great value and a far more relaxing time for the whole family,” said Paul.

“They also gets the thumbs-up from youngsters who like to get their thrills from being active, not lying around under sunshades with nothing to do.

“Add to this the rising costs and uncertainties about going overseas, and it’s not surprising that tourism experts are predicting a record year for staycations.

“This is certainly proving our experience, and I’m delighted that our new activity line-up seems to be ticking everyone’s boxes!” added Paul.

Searles provides more than 500 privately owned and letting holiday homes, as well as 300-plus touring pitches, as well as luxury timber camping pods.
