I haven't actually visited this site - I am unable to as I am a single person having been widowed. According to Searles' policies this now makes me a threat to the safety of the families and couples on the site so I am not allowed on. A pretty disgusting policy with no foundation. Apparently single people are not fit to mix with families and couples!

This is our first visit to this site and we cant fault it at all, Every thing you need for a great family holiday. The touring park was spotless and just a short walk to every thing , beach 5 minutes away .
We would recommend this to all not matter what age.

We have been every year for the last 4 years. It is a super site, clean, well maintained and loads to do. The shows in the evening were loved by the children, especially when all the characters appeared for a dance. It is very close to the beach, and Hunstanton is a very quiet seaside town.

We have just spent this Easter at Searles. Our first break away and couldn't ask for more. Lots to do on site for families. Beautifully maintained site with good size pitches, we had a corner pitch with enough room for two cars, caravan and awning. Reasonably priced on site general store. Excellent chippy. Good heated indoor pool which was well heated and child friendly. Tesco's have a store outside the entrance if needed. Plenty of shower blocks and waste points, all kept clean and tidy by the staff. All the staff we met were helpful and polite - including the security guard who had to reset my electric when I tripped it out.... After 23.00 there was very litle noise on the site. The icing on the cake Hunstanton is lovely on a sunny day.

Very good all round site, pitches a good size. close to the beach, toilet and shower facility's good, regarding the entertainment if you want it it is their and if you don't it will not affect your stay in any way, noise levels at night are virtually non existent.

I would give this site 9 out of 10.

Thank you for kind comments, all here at Searles are glad that you have enjoyed your stay and have taken the time to positively review us. Regards Searles Team


I doubt if there is another site anywhere as good as this one. It is immaculate. Toilets cleaned several times a day, general maintenance all around the site is ongoing and the people who go there do so because they appreciate the well kept, safe and pleasant surroundings. This is one of those rare places where people are polite, friendly and considerate towards each other. Like most of the people who have stayed there, we will continue to go as often as we can.
The pools are warm and a very good size, no extra payment to use them, hairdryers in the toilet blocks do not have coin machines. The jacuzzi and sauna are free also and the evening entertainment is first class. There is a bar which is adults only with 'gentle' entertainment and the club house where the children go has a wide range of entertainment. The children who go to this site are usually well behaved, polite children in my experience and cause no one any offence. Bad behaviour is not tolerated at this site and the excellent security staff ensure that everyone enjoys their stay. At night from midnight at the latest, all is quiet, no drunkenness, domestic quarrels, screaming children etc. Pure bliss!
