Places of Natural Interest

Beautiful Locations to Visit When at Pakefield 

Carlton Marshes
 Around a 5 minute drive from the park, Carlton Marshes is a 151 hectare nature reserve. Managed by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust the marshes are a special area of conservation and a site of scientific interest. Carlton marshes is home to a large array of wildlife, from barn owls to fen raft spiders! With footpaths running throughout the marshes you are free to explore the area at your leisure.
During school holidays there are often sessions run by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust for children to enjoy during their time off school.

Dunwich Forest
Heathland, woodland and the beach; Dunwich has it all and is a fantastic day out for all ages. Dunwich Forest is an area of forest and lowland heath on the Suffolk coast. The forest falls within the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Dunwich Heath is one of the largest remaining areas of lowland heath in Suffolk and includes the RSPB reserve at Minsmere. Just to the north lies Dingle Marshes which is part of a national nature reserve. Something to look out for whilst visiting Dunwich are the Dartmoor Ponies that have been introduced to the northern area and are now free to roam and graze around the reserve. 

 The Broads National Park
Unbeknown to many, the broads national park and its many waterways are not part of the natural landscape. In the 1960's it was proven that the broads were in fact medieval peat exavations, intially exavated by the local monasteries for fuel they would sell on to Norwich. The cathedral in particular was a big customer for them; buying around 320,000 tonnes a year. Eventually, as the sea levels began to rise the landscape and the excavations were flooded creating the landscape of today.
From Beccles to Bungay there are many ways to view or access the broads within easy driving distance of the park. The closest area would be Oulton Broad. A short 5 minute drive from the park Oulton Broad is a beautiful place to visit on a sunny day with it's many beer gardens and eateries. The Nicholas Everitt Park is great to have a look around with plenty of activities during the summer months. From here you can also hire a boat or join a boat tour to properly explore the broads' waterways.

  Benacre National Nature Reserve lies between Pakefield and Southwold, covering almost 1000 acres of Suffolk coastline. The reserve is of particular interest to 'twitchers' with over 100 species of breeding birds to spot at the reserve; including marsh harrier and bearded reedling. Habitats include reedbeds, woodland and natural lagoons. 

Upcoming Event - Gt Yarmouth Air Show

The Great Yarmouth Air Show
Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th June

After the cancellation of the Lowestoft Air Show for the past few years it was fantastic to hear that there is a Gt Yarmouth Air Show going ahead this summer.
Taking place over a weekend in June you can expect a mix of civilian & military aircraft display teams. Already confirmed to be performing are East Anglia's Wildcat Aerobatics team and the Tigers Army Parachute display team. Set to be announced in early spring are the world famous Red Arrows and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
As well as whats going on in the air you can expect all of the usual attractions Yarmouth has to offer to be buzzing over the weekend. The whole of the seafront area will be pedestrianised for the two days the show is taking place and there will be plenty of extra stalls and exhibitions to take a look around. 

We of course hope to see lots of our holiday home owners on park over this weekend. I'm sure a few of you will remember the Lowestoft Air Show fondly and will be looking forward to the Yarmouth spectacle. 
For all those that are planning a holiday in our hire fleet, if you think you would enjoy the Gt. Yarmouth Airshow why not make our park your base to visit Yarmouth from. We have caravans available over this weekend starting from £330-00. To make the weekend all the more special we still have a few of our Platinum Caravans available to hire. Our platinum caravans enjoy uninterrupted sea views (see photo below!) and a large wrap around veranda.

Prepare Your Holiday Home For Winter?                    

 Winter Drain down service is available to all our owners at Pakefield Caravan Park

 Morning All,
Have you prepared your Holiday Home for Winter?
The park offers the service of a full drain down & reconnection of your Holiday Home for a small cost of £58.00 (All Holiday Homes should be drained down for winter).
Have you returned your request form?
The below is a general guide to other winter preparation you can take for your holiday home. Ideally you should follow all instructions in your owner’s handbook.

1. Turn off the water supply at the stop tap.
2. Switch off and unplug all electrical appliances.
3. Remove all food. Thoroughly vacuum all carpets and vinyl to remove any traces of food, and empty the vacuum cleaner.
4. Wipe all kitchen surfaces clean.
5. Check locks and hinges and lubricate if necessary.
6. Clear external gutters of any leaf matter of other debris.

7. Close and secure all windows ensuring curtains are not trapped and are hanging freely, leave curtains open so that any winter sun will help warm the interior.
8. It is advisable to place cushions and mattresses separately on end or on edge to allow free movement of air around them. Where cushions may be exposed to direct winter sunlight a dust sheet or similar cover will help protect against fading of the fabric.
9. To cut down on the condensation it helps to put bowls of salt or moisture traps around the caravan, as these will absorb the moisture in the air and help to stop damp building up.
10. Open all interior doors and drawers to allow free flow of air to all parts of the holiday home.
11. Finally secure all exterior doors.

Pakefield Caravan Park can be found on the outskirts of Lowestoft in the county of Suffolk also known as the Sunrise Coast.
Holiday Home Ownership is most popular here at Pakefield and with the new Cresta Sea View Development completed in March of this year, with its larger and more spacious pitches set around landscape gardens has been highly praised from owners and holiday guests alike if you would like more information visit our website www.pakefieldpark.co.uk or call our office on 01502 561136 
The Park offers a very high standard of Holiday Homes for hire and 12 Touring Caravan & Motorhome pitches.
