Norfolk park opens doors to greener holidays with game-changing all-electric caravan

Low in carbon footprint, but high in luxury specification: the new all-electric holiday caravan at Searles

FAMILIES visiting North West Norfolk can now enjoy luxury holidays which don’t cost the earth, thanks to the introduction by Searles Leisure Resort of a new super-green holiday caravan.

The Hunstanton-based park has become one of the first in the UK to open the doors on a pioneering new all-electric holiday home made by leading UK manufacturer Willerby.

In place of the gas boiler normally used in such accommodation, much cleaner electrical energy will now provide the heating and hot water for holiday guests.

But whilst the holiday caravan’s carbon footprint might be low, levels of luxury are unmistakably high and designed to provide the best possible experience for visitors to Searles.

The large kitchen features all the latest appliances, and the lounge and three bedrooms are all sumptuously furnished and boasting contemporary decor.

According to managing director Paul Searle, the new eco-holiday caravan is another significant step along the road to the family-run park creating a truly sustainable business:

“We all feel privileged to be able to live and work in this beautiful corner of North West Norfolk, and many of our guests come to Searles because of its outstanding location,” said Paul.

“That’s why we take our responsibility for helping to protect the natural world very seriously, and do all we can give nature the same VIP treatment as our customers.

“Our new all-electric holiday caravan will help ensure that our impact on the environment is minimised, and that families can enjoy their stay with a clear conscience,” he added.

In addition to its high levels of insulation and special thermal glass on windows, the holiday home uses intelligent technology to monitor and optimise electricity usage at all times.

Founded 70 years ago, Searles welcomes many thousands of visitors each year, and staying options range from glamping accommodation to luxury leisure homes to buy and to rent.

The park was a founder member of the David Bellamy Conservation Scheme more than two decades ago, and has since introduced a raft of sustainability initiatives.

They include the use of solar energy technology to produce clean electricity, providing EV charging points for electric vehicle owners, and creating wildlife habitats throughout the grounds.

Booking for the 2024 holiday season are extremely strong, said Paul, and said his family was delighted that many other local businesses will once again be benefitting as a result.
