Exploring the Waveney Valley.........
Whether you're staying in your own touring caravan/ motorhome, or staying in one of our Holiday Homes to hire, Pakefield Caravan Park is the ideal base for exploring Suffolk, and in particular the Waveney Valley.
For those that are interested in nature, or love to explore quaint villages and towns thriving with history, or those who simply want to enjoy a pint or two over looking the Broads National Park, there really is something for everyone.
It is the enchanting waterways; the iconic windmills that scatter the banks, and the villages and towns that they intersect, that make the Waveney Valley, one of the most desirable places to visit in Suffolk.
And all of this is pretty much on Pakefield Caravan Parks' doorstep (okay, so it might be a short drive away, but who can complain when you have scenes like this?????)
Oulton Broad, which is literally, just down the road, is home to the largest lake in the Suffolk Broads (yes Suffolk has them too, not just Norfolk!!). Some say it is the 'Gateway to the Broads' and who can blame them? Here you can enjoy a day by the river or on the river with a river boat tour. Or why not become a Captain for the day and hire a boat to take out for your very own river cruise!
For those who are nature lovers, just a short stroll down the river from Oulton Broad, is the Suffolk Wildlife Trust reserve of Carlton Marshes. Here you will find all sorts of flora and fauna, flower studded marshes and pools bursting with water life. Get lost in bird watching, or simply enjoy a stroll along many of the pathways indulging in the beautiful scenery.
If you travel a little bit further inland, you will come across the market town of Beccles, where you can still sit and watch the boats sail past on the river, as well as enjoying everything else the town has to offer. Or why not visit the town of Bungay, where you can walk amongst the castle ruins, or pick up a bargain or two from one of the many antique shops.
These are just some of the things you can see and do in the Waveney Valley. If you want to know more, get yourselves booked in and come and do some exploring.....
