Did you know that Pensthorpe Natural Park is not just all about ducks? As well as appealing to nature and gardening enthusiasts, wildlife lovers and bird watchers, it also makes for a perfect day out for families and young children. 

Multiple WINNER of Norfolk's Best Large Attraction*, Pensthorpe is a modern day nature reserve with a focus on inspiring the next generation to enjoy wildlife and the great outdoors – without compromising on the tranquility and calmness that the reserve brings to so many regular visitors.

Former home of BBC Springwatch, the 700 acre reserve is a true showcase for British wildlife; beautiful gardens including one of Norfolk’s largest wildflower meadows which is home to the famous harvest mouse who starred in the recent BBC’s Planet Earth Two series and; more recently, inspiring adventure play, no matter what the weather. Encounter Flamingos, Red Squirrels, and cute ducks that will feed out of the palm of your hand; larger than life bugs on the Bug Trail; and learn more about Pensthorpe Conservation Trust’s 'Actively Saving Species' projects including Operation Turtle Dove, the Great Crane Project and their Corncrake re-introduction programme.

Hop on the Pensthorpe Explorer** for a behind the scenes tour to discover the secret side of the Wensum Valley, enjoy home cooked food in the Courtyard café and shop in one of North Norfolk’s largest gift shops. Families can unwind together in WildRootz, an outdoor adventure play area and Hootz House, the award winning indoor play area, complete with soft play for the under 5s.

Delightful natural woodland and water garden with a private Broad. 

The Sensory Garden is the first thing you’ll see as you walk into Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden. It has been designed with our visually and mobility impaired customers in mind.

In spring the garden 'springs' into life again. The primroses come into flower along the Broads Walk and the woodland paths. In May the glorious sight of bluebells will delight you, and our spectacular candelabra primulas, together with azaleas and rhododendrons.

There's lots of activity among the water birds and if you are lucky you may see a flash of vivid blue as the kingfisher dives for its prey.

In Summer there are flowers and shrubs including hydrangeas – in particular along our Hydrangea Walk – foxgloves and many other wild flowers. Several varieties of butterflies can be seen on our butterfly path.

Autumn brings its own special pleasure, the glow of the golds, reds and browns of the trees as they shed their leaves. The stark contrast of bare branches in Winter has a different kind of beauty, and withering birds come to shelter in the broads.

In December you can buy Christmas trees, wreaths and gifts and Father Christmas will visit before Christmas with gifts for children.

Fairhaven has three miles of peaceful walks. Boat trips are available on our Private Broad and South Walsham Broad from Easter to the end of October, including trips to St Benet's Abbey.
