Making plans for our stay at Potters Resort, Hopton on Sea

I've mentioned already that we will be heading off to Potters Resort on the coast between Norfolk and Suffolk at the end of August and like I always do I've been showing the kids the website and brochure so they can start to plan what they might like to do when we are on holiday.


I'll be honest I'm starting to get a little worried that a) we won't have enough time to do all the activities that the children want to and b) that I will go home completely and utterly exhausted!

I have been really pleasantly surprised just how many things you can do at Potters Resort and what has surprised me most is that practically everything is included in the price. They sure are packing a lot into their 65 acre resort, even a private sandy beach!

This is what we have already decided upon -

  • JJ - laser quest, crazy golf, pool, rally karts, gaming zone and bowling (which does have a small charge) he is also super keen to try out Buzbys basement which is a kids club for over 8's and does not start until 9pm!
  • Miss M - swimming, country fayre, 35 metre inflatable assault course, climbing wall, electric go-karts and giant swing
  • Miss E - Jewellery making, playbus, parachute games, art attack and a backstage tour from the Potters theatre company
  • Me - I can't wait to get my hands on a gun. That sounds terrible doesn't it?  But I love clay pigeon shooting and I want to try indoor air rifle shooting as well
  • Dh - he will just come wherever we all go and enjoy joining in as he is that kind of relaxed guy, which is why we all love him

We are not a particularly sporty family in general but Potters caters really well for those who are, with sports coaching in the summer months, racket sports, bowls, football and so much more.

I've seen that the kids will each be given their own special Potters passport when they check in and this will be their ticket to great fun whilst on their summer holiday. I know the girls especially will love the novelty of this and also of having their own dedicated check-in desk when they arrive. Why to go Potters Resort, this is how you make little people feel really special!

As well as loads of inclusive activities we are looking forward to the evening entertainment with times dedicated to our children and then later on there are shows from the Potters Theatre company which look to be really professional and if the reviews on Trip advisor are anything to go by we will not be disappointed.



Of course I'm sure the food will be a highlight as well. The chance to eat four meals a day is appealing, although I'm not sure how many of the nights I will be up at midnight to enjoy that feast! lol

Just look at the garden restaurant, when my kids see this they are going to be jumping for joy.  They think the Premier Inn is posh!


I found a couple of reviews from previous bloggers to share with you and now I'm even more keen to get there -

If after seeing what is available you realise you want to try it out for yourself why don't you take a look at what Potters resort are offering this summer and maybe book a break? They have a whole variety of short breaks ranging from two nights to four nights and in fact there is even a special one night break at the end of August to finish off the holiday season!

I shouldn't be wishing our summer away but the end of August can't come soon enough as we are looking forward to our break at Potters Resort.

Where are you going this summer? Do you take your holidays here in the UK or fly off somewhere with the kids?

If you are looking to go a little further north in Norfolk then see what Penny at parentshaped has to say about her weekend break in North Norfolk.

Disclosure: Our family will spend a complimentary 3 night stay st Potters Resort in August to honestly review their facilities. I have not been instructed what to write and I remain honest.
