Family-friendly places to stay in Norfolk

Accommodation suited to family holidays in Norfolk ranges from campsites, farm-stays, holiday parks and cottages to wonderfully stylish hotels with restaurants to match. Sandringham House (see Things to Do with Kids in Norfolk) has two cottages and two caravan sites within its country park, with glamping available at the Camping and Caravanning Club site.

Forest Holidays has lodges in Norfolk's Thorpe Forest, or there's a Center Parcs just over the border with Suffolk, at Elveden Forest. Alternatively, a family-friendly youth hostel can be a great way of seeing Norfolk on a budget, or check out this characterful four-bedroom flint cottage with Aga and outdoor pool in the Georgian town of Holt.
