Holt Country Park is set in 100 acres of mixed woodland and is a Green Flag award winner. Open all year round for the public to enjoy. It is situated on the edge of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Holt Country Park is managed by the Council's countryside team to make sure there is something for everyone to enjoy. We cater to a wide variety of different interests. The park attracts visits from wildlife enthusiasts, dog walkers, families, schools and community groups, and people looking for a relaxing stroll.
When you walk into the tranquil woodland, dominated with Scots pines and native broadleaves, it's easy to understand why. As we move through the seasons come changes in the beautiful displays of flowers that you can find, from orchids in the summer to snowdrops in the winter. The rich ground flora supports an abundant array of wildlife including goldcrests, greater spotted woodpeckers and deer, amongst many others.
Holt Country Park is home to many varieties of butterflies, including the beautiful Silver-washed fritillary. This butterfly who share their airspace with dragonflies and damselflies forms part of the countryside services' logo,
Holt Country Park is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please note, parking may be limited on event days.
