Summer may draw the crowds to Norfolk, but with plenty of leafy woodland walks and empty beaches to enjoy, followed by a well-earned hot chocolate and sweet treat (doughnuts on the prom, anyone?), winter is a wonderful moment to sneak a Norfolk break. There are plenty of fun events to fill the days, so book a touring stay at Searles or enjoy one of our special weekends and beat the winter blues with a getaway – come on, what are you waiting for…
Whizz, bang, ahhh… Fireworks Night in Norfolk
Guy Fawkes Night, Bonfire Night, Fireworks Night, call it what you will, nothing beats the thrill of a glittering display of whistling rockets, spinning Catherine’s wheels and sparklers in early November. Our home town’s event, held on the clifftop near the iconic lighthouse and organised by Hunstanton District Round Table, is one of the best and we have teamed up to offer a Bonfire & Fireworks Weekend from 3-5 November, which includes a two-night self-catering stay, return transport and entry to the display, along with Searles’ entertainment and free use of our swimming and splash pools over the weekend. With live music from the Rock Choir, fairground rides and food stalls at Saturday night’s display, treat the kids and make family memories you’ll never forget.
Chill out at Searles Sunny Hunny Soul Weekender
We are not kidding when we say our Sunny Hunny Soul Weekender, which this year takes place on 17-19 November, raises the roof! If you love your music and to move your feet, this one’s got your name all over it. Boogie the night away in our three dedicated rooms and enjoy a late night drink at the bar, then slip away to your self-catering accommodation before doing it all again as the sun sets the following evening. If you are local, you can nab one of our limited availability weekend passes and join in the party too. With live DJs and plenty of classic soul tracks, what better way to blow away the cobwebs – we’ll see you on the dance floor!
Be a legend at the Searles Solid Gold Weekend
If the swinging 60s and glam 70s are your golden era of music, then our adults only Solid Gold Weekend on 1-4 December is unmissable. With three days and nights of live music from The Rubettes (bet you’re humming ‘Sugar Baby Love’ now), Merseybeat’s The Fourmost and tribute band One Night of Tom Jones starring Glen Leon. With half-board accommodation and free use of Searles’ swimming pools, kick back, chill out and enjoy the tunes all weekend long.
Celebrate 2024 in style with a Searles New Year break
Now, if you’re anything like us, after a busy build-up to Christmas and hosting the folks on Boxing Day, we’re just about ready to let someone else take care of New Year’s and we have the solution with a Searles’ New Year Break. Arriving on 29 December for a four-night, self-catering break with use of our swimming pools, the beauty of this getaway is that you choose how to see in the New Year.
It’s all about family at the Sundowners Family Disco Party which kicks off the celebrations at 5.30pm with a brilliant buffet, cabaret and disco where everyone’s welcome. If you prefer table service, our Lounge Bar Disco Party is perfect – select your menu from our three-course dinner and we’ll have a drink ready for your arrival at 7.30pm before you dine and disco until the small hours. Alternatively, get all dressed up for our black-tie Fountain Bar New Year Cocktail Party where the Champagne is on ice and a delicious four-course meal awaits. Our New Year events always sell-out and, with limited availability, must be booked by 1 December, so if you fancy starting 2024 in style, get your nearest and dearest together, plan the party and order your tickets now.
Plan ahead for February half term in Norfolk
Finally, we know we’re getting ahead of ourselves, but as sure as eggs are eggs February half term will be upon us before we know it, so do yourself a favour and bookmark this page to plan a Norfolk adventure with the kids at Searles.
By mid-February, the early signs of spring will hopefully be showing, with the arrival of early lambs waiting to be fed a bottle at Snettisham Park, stunning snowdrop trails at Sandringham and wild rides at King’s Lynn’s 818th annual Mart to shriek to! Don’t miss out, book your half term break at Searles now and you’re good to go – we’ll see you in 2024!
