Leading holiday park operator Darwin Escapes, based in Talacre, North Wales, is opening Norfolk Woods Resort and Spa in Pentney, near King’s Lynn, in January 2019 which will create fifty new full and part-time jobs.

Set in beautiful countryside, the boutique holiday lodge park will provide self-catering lodges with decking areas and private hot tubs. There will be 80 letting lodges and 38 owners’ lodges available. Prices range from £80,000 to £190,000.

Facilities available to holiday guests and holiday home owners will include a tropically heated swimming pool and spa, a state-of-the-art gym and a restaurant and café as well as a refurbished on-site local convenience store.

There will also be an exciting daily programme of events and activities, lots for children to do including a nature themed play park and Go Active field and free Wi-Fi. Pets will also be welcome.

The site, off the A47 between King’s Lynn and Swaffham, was previously known as Pentney Park and was a popular camping and touring caravan park. Darwin Escapes was granted permission to demolish existing buildings in January.

Lindsey Esse, managing director of Darwin Escapes, said: “Norfolk Woods Resort & Spa is the perfect addition to our Darwin Escapes portfolio of holiday parks.

“We are investing millions of pounds in the location to create a destination which offers our guests everything they could wish for on a self-catered lodge holiday in Norfolk.

“We know what people are looking for in a great British holiday, which is why all our parks offer the highest standards of accommodation, facilities and service.

“Our homes are designed by some of the UK’s leading manufacturers, our beds have the most comfortable mattresses and each lodge is fully equipped with a stylish kitchen. We want our guests to be able to quickly relax and escape from the pressures of daily life.”

Darwin Escapes operates 22 holiday parks throughout the UK offering a variety of holiday styles including secluded boutique lodge retreats, luxury lodge resorts with state-of-the-art leisure facilities and family-oriented traditional holiday parks. 

Darwin Escapes’ head office is in Talacre, North Wales. It claims to be setting new standards for the UK holiday park industry by creating brand new parks in stunning locations with accommodation and facilities to rival five star hotels.
