This sweet Regency-era cottage dates back to the 18th century and has been sympathetically renovated to welcome visitors to peaceful Neatishead – a village that’s less than a 10-minute drive from BeWILDerwood adventure park. There are also public moorings a few minutes’ walk away, if you’re exploring the area by boat, and a village pub just around the corner. You’ll get a good night’s sleep in the crisp-yet-cosy bedrooms, before enjoying a tasty home-cooked breakfast in the dining room downstairs each morning.

This delightful self-catering option takes over a large, modern holiday home in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. Villa Morea offers all the comforts of a home-from-home, with an upmarket twist. The lush, sprawling gardens boast a BBQ and picnic area, while the yard is decked out with outdoor fireplaces and a hot tub to sink into after a busy day of activities at BeWILDerwood (a three-minute drive away). The kitchen is equipped with all mod cons, while the bathrooms feature very fancy jetted baths.

Just 20 minutes’ drive from BeWILDerwood is a slice of luxury, at this Grade II-listed, Victorian-era stately home. With a spa, health club and golf course you’ll be spoilt for choice of things to do at Dunston Hall, let alone places to eat: there’s a brasserie restaurant and two bars. But it’s the afternoon tea that really takes the cake – or more accurately, puts it on a willow-patterned plate, alongside fresh-baked scones and sweet treats piled high. All 166 of the sophisticated rooms and suites come with LCD TVs, complete with cable channels to ensure that the whole family is catered to (although there might be a few arguments over the remote).
