Welcome to Wild Duck
Wild Duck holiday park enjoys a magical woodland setting with a lovely relaxing "away from it all" feel. In fact it is the only Haven park in a woodland setting, making your stay unique! And yet you are only a few miles inland from the sandy beaches and the lively family friendly resort of Great Yarmouth. You really will have the best of both worlds, with lazy days spent relaxing by the pools and active afternoons getting involved with the fun activities on offer. Flexibility and freedom are what Haven holidays are all about, so you have the freedom to decide how your holiday runs! Get away from the outside world and spend quality time together as a family with everything you need on the doorstep.
Haven Wild Duck Sports & Leisure
All Haven parks have a full range of sports activities and Wild Duck is no exception. There is something for everyone, no matter your age or interests! We love the pools as they make a great setting for spending days together as a family, whether playing games in the pool or sun bathing by its side. The outdoor pool is perfect for hot sunny days, but even if the weather is a little rainy, head inside to the indoor pool where the fun continues! The Aqua Inflatables and Aqua Jets are fun activities for kids to splash around or zoom underwater!
Wild Duck is special thanks to its spot in the Norfolk woodland. This makes it great for bike rides through the trails and beneath the trees. Why not hire bikes or karts to explore this beautiful natural setting with the whole family? If kids are still learning to ride a bike, make use of the Learn to Bike Coaching sessions with the well qualified activity leaders. They will be patient and supportive, helping your little ones develop their confidence on their bike.
The sports activities are varied and unusual - try your hand at archery and fencing if you're looking for a new and exciting challenge! Practice your aim at the target shooting!
Since the park is set in the woodlands, there are some interesting activities you get you acquainted with your new home for the week. Den Building is always fun for children to get active and creating whilst searching for sticks to create the perfect hideaway. Mud Muffins can get messy, but is super fun for little ones to play with the mud and create something new from something unexpected!
Some activities are subject to a moderate extra charge
