One lucky reader will win a three-night stay in the luxurious Chestnut Barn in the heart of the Norfolk Broads worth £700, thanks to Visit Great Yarmouth ( and

Sleeping up to four guests, this beautifully converted barn offers upside down living at its best with its spacious first floor living space featuring gorgeous far reaching countryside views.  Dating back to the 1880’s, the stylish holiday home has plenty of character with exposed beams and is dog-friendly too. The wood burner ensures guests are cosy whatever the weather and outside are attractive gardens to the front, and rear. Downstairs there’s a super king master bedroom with a second bedroom that can be made up as a twin or super king. 

The beautiful sandy beaches at Winterton and the golden sands and attractions of Great Yarmouth’s Golden Mile are less than 15 minutes away.

Funfair aficionados will love the 20 plus rides at Great Yarmouth’s Pleasure Beach from the classic wooden Roller Coaster, Dodgems and Cups and Saucers to a Haunted House.

Young and old can delight in Merrivale Model Village, which features the countryside in miniature with its own busy town centre, a perfectly kept village inn, farm, travelling fair, sports stadium, zoo, holiday park, country club, castle, and cottages. There’s also a nine-hole crazy golf course that visitors can enjoy.

Rainy day options include Sea Life’s Rainforest Ranger experience where visitors can immerse themselves in a world of insects including a fascinating colony of leafcutter ants and come face-to-face with African dwarf crocodiles and blue poison dart frogs. Juvenile black tip reef and zebra sharks, inquisitive sea turtles, Humboldt penguins and dwarf crocodiles are also a draw at Sea Life.

The latest attraction to join the Golden Mile is Great Yarmouth Escape Rooms.  A first for the Norfolk resort, the attraction offers two challenges to solve. ‘Wizard and Potion Maker’ is the perfect choice for Harry Potter fans, while slightly more challenging and scarier, ‘Conjured – Spirits and Demons’ – is set in a haunted house and ideal for those aged 12 year and older.
