This is a treasure of a resort for families. There's loads of activities on site plus it's also right on the north Norfolk coastline so it's surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and picturesque fishing villages. Sandringham and Holkham Hall are both a short drive away and Hunstanton, with its traditional seaside attractions is within walking distance.
Searles has indoor and outdoor heated pools, a children's pool and even a jet water splash pad. There's a gym, sauna and Jacuzzi as well as a beauty salon, three themed bars and four restaurants! The kids can play crazy golf or go on the pedal go karts - and there's tennis and golf for all ages.
We love Silver Lodge 6, a superbly spacious lodge with a contemporary design and all mod cons, such as flat screen TV, Freeview and dishwasher. The large open plan living space opens out on to a good sized decking area with outdoor furniture and it sleeps up to six people.
If you're feeling even more active, you could head to Extreeme Adventure in King's Lynn and climb the high rope course with its 1,000 ft zip wire descent. There is also an obstacle course for the under 10s and a woodland treasure hunt.

Clean and tidy accommodation
Great big caravan. Lots of space
Holiday lodge is fine. Good location on site and good facilities. All lodges are very close together.
See previous comments. Note questions below - did not use on site restaurants
The caravan was lovely and clean, very well laid out, plenty of seating, bathroom was much bigger than I thought it would be and the kitchen had everything to hand and there were plenty of utensils to use.
It was nice to be able to go the beach and then go back for a quick rest and maybe lunch and get changed and go out again for the evening as everything is so close together.
Shelley, Colchester Essex
Lovely, caravan, nice and clean, with area outside,which was nice for a bbq.
Ann, Eye, Suffolk
Some of the lighting in the lodge could have been improved - only spot ceiling lights in lounge area - made it difficult to read during evening.
Very well equipped and maintained.
Really lovely lodge, clean & comfortable
Brilliant can't fault anything
Searles is an excellent holiday camp for people with young children. Its entertainment finishes early, so its a quiet camp allowing for a good nights sleep. Its facilities are clean and adequate without the pressures on parents you get from bigger camps. Our 2 and 3 year old grand children loved their 4 day holiday experience.
great place to stay, lodge very clean and comfortable
Had a fantastic time. Lovely park. Great location. Good standard of accommodation. Would definetly return and recommend. ðŸ˜€
Caravan was neat and tidy with ample space for the family. The two ensuites were helpful. The enclosed balcony useful for the children. Note wallpaper was already torn in one of the bedrooms.
Lovely relaxing week with the family. Stayed in a bronze lodge which was spacious, clean and had every thing we needed. Lots to do on site and in the local area - will be visiting again.
It is a fantastic family site and we love going there. A short distance to the beach and to the searles wash monster. It's good valuse for money and excellent evening entertainment for all the family. Would recommend.
Had a fantastic time at Searles this summer. Our 3 boys 3,7 &9 are already asking to go back, they particularly loved the splash pool and bikes, the evening entertainment was perfect for them and being so close to the beach and town meant there was plenty to keep them occupied off site too. We stayed in a silver lodge, the only complaint I have is that you could tell it was towards the end of the summer holidays and we were some on the last on the conveyor belt of guests - the accommodation wasn't as clean as it could have been and was quite dated inside, one of the fence panels on the decking was broken too. We paid a lot of money to stay in a lodge so it was disappointing but overall I would go back and maybe just do some extra saving to afford a slightly more modern lodge!
Great location. Very clean caravan
Very happy with the holiday, so much so we are going back next yr.
