Kelling Heath is set amongst 300 acres of rare open heathland in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It also sits very close to the North Norfolk coastline at Weybourne. The site is a very popular family destination and offers a wide range of recreational & leisure activities. Eibe was awarded the tender at the start of the year after they presented their environmentally-friendly play park designs that utilize their sustainable hardwood Robinia, guaranteed to last well over a decade.


Eibe’s thoughts behind the design of the park considered the park’s natural surroundings especially the diverse range of wildlife including the Red Squirrels. The Squirrel’s Drey design was chosen to reflect the fact that Kelling has successfully bred over 30 kittens since joining the national red squirrel breeding program in 1999. The Steam Train Adventure was a great addition to the fact the Park is an official halt on the North Norfolk Railway’s famous Poppy Line between Sheringham and Holt – something Mr Durrant says informed the choice of the official opening. The use of subtle theming was well designed to enhance the aesthetic feel and reflect the heritage of the site. Eibe has done an exceptional job in creating the themed adventure-style course for children of all ages and play values.


Andrew Munden, NNR general manager, officially opened the new equipment at Kelling Heath Holiday Park in July this year. Mark Durrant, park manager, said. “We’re really pleased with the new additions and hope they will inspire a natural love of the outdoors through imaginative play.” Mark Durrant, park manager, said. “Ryan and his team were superb, good communication. Stuart was fantastic from start to finish in his communications and keeping us updated in the progress of the project.”
