Holt Country Park

View a large map of Holt Country Park.

Holt Country Park, situated on the edge of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a Green Flag award winner. When you walk in to the tranquil woodland, dominated with Scots pines and native broadleaves, it’s easy to understand why.

With the change in seasons come changes in the wonderful displays of flowers that you can find, from orchids in the summer to snowdrops in the winter. Holt Country Park is home to many varieties of butterflies who share their airspace with dragonflies and damselflies. The rich ground flora supports an abundant display of wildlife including goldcrests, greater spotted woodpeckers and deer.

Lots of events and activities take place throughout the year at Holt Country Park, (see below). We love to welcome visits from school children, and host environmental and arts events throughout the year. Please see our school visits page to see what we offer.

Facilities include a visitor centre with toilets. Car parking, including disabled parking bays, is available at £1.50 per day. There are way-marked routes suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

If you are regular visitor, why not buy an annual parking permit? At just £20 it is great value and is available from the visitor centre or NNDC’s Cromer office.
