Norfolk's newest leisure retreat has opened its doors for the first time.

Operator Darwin Escapes has completely revamped the former Pentney Park touring caravan park, between Swaffham and King's Lynn.

Now luxurious lodges nestle in the woods, while guests and visitors can enjoy a bar, restaurants, tropically heated pool, gym and spa.

Accomodation is spread around the site, with many of its 80 lodges having hot tubs. All have flat screen TVs in every room and wifi.

One complaint from visitors to the previous site was the noise from the busy A47, which runs nearby.

The road now has been screened by an earth bank, while the large hospitality building housing bar, restaurants, pool, gym and on-site shop stands between the route and the lodges.
