3. Fields End Water Caravan Park, Cambridgeshire
Fields End Water Caravan Park has an exciting season ahead. As one of the premiere fishing holiday parks in the country, they have extended the park this spring and are very much looking forward to visitors experiencing their new Waterside development for the first time this April. Anglers can enjoy direct access to the lake from the touring pitch, which means you wont have to walk far with all your gear.
Like all of the parks in the Best of British group, Fields End Water is 5 star rated, independent and family owned. Guests can enjoy exceptional caravanning and fishing in the unique and historic Fens. The park is perfectly positioned for a tranquil holiday at home. And if you don't have a caravan or motorhome, we recommend one of the luxury fishing lodges! This Cambridgeshire holiday park is usually open all year.
Norfolk is famous for the mudflats and saltmarshes, a unique landscape that you rarely see elsewhere. A beautiful sight to see in person, the marshes are also home to an array of wildlife. There is something to see throughout the year, whether it is the developing plant life, the local ecology or migrating birds. The coast path runs through areas of the marshes, so you'll have a ready made pathway to take you through this wonderful and unique landscape.
Positioned in the centre of the North Norfolk coast, and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this area boasts over 40 miles of beautiful beaches. It is also home to unspoiled vistas and wildlife havens. Wells-next-the-Sea is still a working fishing port and you can still see the boats unload their catch. One of the most idyllic and photographed spots on this coastline, you can sit and watch the action with some fish and chips on the quay. The accompanying beach and colourful beach huts is one of the most popular in the country, so grab your spot on the sand early!
What better way to take in the sights of Cambridge than punting along the River Cam. On a hot and sunny day, there's no better way to see the city. Depending on which route you take, you will pass the famous Cambridge colleges, go under many of the historic bridges and if you have a vocal guide, learn lots about local history and geography! In the spirit of 'trying something new', we highly recommend a punting tour of Cambridge during a stay at one of the Best of British Touring & Holiday Parks!
This medieval cathedral, famous for its wooden-framed lantern tower, is a highlight of medieval architecture. It originates from AD 672, and is steeped in history. Highly regarded by historians and architects for its beauty and size, Ely Cathedral is the only UK building to be listed as one of the 'Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages'.
