With summer fast approaching, the Dream Lodge Group has proposed that families, yet to book their annual getaway, ought to contemplate a stay in a luxury lodge. With UK ‘stay-cations’ forming the bulk of holidays this year, thanks to continuing, difficult economic conditions, the country’s seaside resorts and heritage sites are expected to reap rewards as recession busting escapes are chosen this year.

The Dream Lodge Group, a holiday park operator, has already experienced a 20% increase in holiday bookings compared with the same period last year. Home to The Broads, miles of unspoiled coastline (around The Wash and even the North Sea), rolling countryside and the historical City of Norwich, it is no surprise that Norfolk is one of the UK’s tourism hotspots. For families seeking a tranquil base to explore this popular seaside county, The Dream Lodge Group offers luxury lodge holidays set in 20 acres of mature parkland, right in the heart of the North Norfolk Heritage Coast.

Nestled in the market town of North Walsham, Norfolk Park offers a choice of accommodation to suit most budgets, from deluxe leisure homes to luxurious lodges with hot tubs and saunas within a private development. The lodges are secluded, yet well-equipped, with all mod-cons, and offer large decking areas that are perfect for family BBQs or gatherings with friends, while enjoying the delightful vistas of the Norfolk countryside.

With its bistro-style award-winning restaurant, The Olive Tree, Mediterranean garden and heated outdoor swimming pool, Norfolk Park is an ideal self-catering base for family days out, relaxing weekend breaks, or for taking action-packed longer term holidays. It is so popular, as it puts a luxurious twist on the much loved ‘Great British holiday’, with The Norfolk Broads and the seaside towns of Wells, Cromer, Sheringham and Great Yarmouth within easy reach.
