Children's activities on the
North Norfolk Coast
We defy your children to be bored when they have the beach just a stone’s throw away, but once you feel the need to explore further, here are a few family favourites to keep the little ones amused:
Farmer Fred's Adventure Play Barn
Caley Mill, Lynn Road, Heacham PE31 7JE
Tel: 01485 579526
If it’s wet outside, or you need a change of scene, Farmer Fred’s is the place to be. Ball pits, climbing nets, adventure courses and a fabulous wavy slide mean the kids burn off energy while you get to read the papers, enjoy a coffee and a slice of cake. Socks must be worn at all times, so come prepared.
Bircham Road, Snettisham PE31 7NG
Tel: 01485 542425
Take a deer safari and see the magnificent herd, enjoy the farm animals and, in spring, help to bottle-feed the orphan lambs – your kids will be entranced.
Horning Road, Hoveton NR12 8JW
Tel: 01692 633033
Slightly further afield but well worth a day trip, BeWILDerwood is an imaginative adventure park with treehouses, boat rides, play areas and a fantastic trail that will keep all the family entertained.
Oasis Sports and Leisure Centre
Seagate Road, Hunstanton, PE36 5BD
Tel: 01485 534227
Busy on wet days but often a quieter spot to take the children when the sun is out or during the winter months. Swim, play in the fun castle, try the Eco Ice Skating or even tire them out with a Junior Aerobics or Bodyworks Class.
