BeWILDerwood is a huge, award winning forest of family fun and outdoor adventure. There are treehouses, zip wires, jungle bridges, Crocklebogs, Twiggles and Boggles, storytelling, boat trips, marsh walks and really yummy food! It looks awesome and worth a trip to Norfolk on its own! Just take a look at this video Claire at Tin Box Traveller made and you’ll be sold!
If you do fancy spending some time at BeWILDerwood then you should take a look at staying close to Norwich as it’s only half an hour away. This fabulous riverside property, Four Seasons, with a games room and hot tub set in the hamlet of Thorpe St Andrew on the outskirts of the historic city of Norwich will take some beating. Sleeping 12 in 6 bedrooms it makes for the oerfect family gathering.
If you stay at Four Seasons you are also able to spend some time in Norwich City.
2. Norwich City
Norwich is an elegant and cultural destination, and a UNESCO City of Literature to boot. It’s fantastic for shopping yet rich in medieval architecture with a cathedral, castle and many timber-framed, cobbled lanes to explore. It’s a lovely city to potter around with kids. Not too busy, but with charm and fun things to do.
3. Norfolk Broads
Another big draw for my kids would however be the Norfolk Broads. The Norfolk Broads, now a National Park and renamed The Broads National park, is like stepping into Swallows and Amazons. There is wildlife and birds to see, people can go fishing or you can just sail the waterways. For me it would be fabulous to hire a day cruiser and navigate the waterways perhaps taking some canoes out for the day too!
If we were to do this we could consider staying in Buxton at the Oak House. A fabulous house with space, space galore for family and friends to enjoy all year round. There is also a children’s playroom with a games console, TV and additional games.

4. Felbrigg Hall
One of the most elegant country houses in East Anglia, the Hall is a place of surprises and delights, a mixture of opulence and homeliness where each room has something to feed the imagination. With story boxes for the children in the hall that help explain some of the history of the house, you can have a lovely family day out here like at other local National Trust houses in the area.
