A fabulous little complex within easy reach of the beach & loads of attractions that Norfolk has to offer. With the indoor pool it really is a place that you can holiday at any time of year as it doesn't matter what the weather is doing. Perfect for us as it was so family friendly & we didn't want to go abroad this year but this was by no means second best. We are planning another trip there next year if we can.
