Searles Leisure Resort

Searles Leisure Resort is an independent family-owned holiday resort that has provided holidays in Hunstanton for nearly 100 years.

Opening Season

Searles Leisure Resort is located in the traditional Victorian seaside town of Hunstanton. Nestled on the North West Norfolk coast, Hunstanton was purposely built as a holiday destination in the 1800’s and has continued to welcome visitors since then to enjoy all the wonders of a escape by the sea.

Searles Leisure Resort started from humble beginnings with the founder Geoffrey Searle welcoming visitors to camp in his donkey field to enjoy a break from everyday life. Since then 3 generations of Searle’s have taken over the helm growing the resort to one of the premiere family holiday destinations in Norfolk, with the accolades to boot.

Accommodation options range from touring and camping pitches, to camping pods, to traditional caravans and luxury lodges. There truly is something for everyone. For those who don’t want to leave, Searles Leisure Resort offers the opportunity to privately own your own lodge or caravan across the resort.

Searles Leisure Resort is set apart by its easy walking distance to the beach and bounty of facilities. Offering entertainment and activities for all tastes. The resort motto is: “Creating Happiness for All Ages”, and many guests have loyally returned year after year for the happy memories Searles brings.

One of the most popular facilities is Searles Leisure Resorts generous leisure complex. The indoor swimming pool is open year round and also boasts a sauna and jacuzzi for optimum relaxation. Little holidaymakers adore the indoor splash play pool which can also be hired for private birthday celebrations. Gym passes are available to purchase for the well-equipped fitness center offering a friendly environment to stay healthy. Finally, the outdoor swimming pool provides the perfect spot for fun and lounging in the warmer months.
