We are so grateful to the Smallman and Son Foundation for providing a caravan for our Steps families to use. Their generosity enables many of our families to get a much needed break. Life with a child with additional needs can be very challenging and it is so important that our families get the chance to get away, breathe in some fresh sea-air, and relax.
Terry Lee Lodge is situated at Heacham Beach Holiday Park and is available from March to October each year. The caravan has been specially adapted to meet the varied needs of our families, including a wide ramp up to the front door and a very spacious open plan living/dining area inside. The caravan can comfortably sleep 8 people with one double room, two twin rooms and a pull out bed in the living room.
At our caravan, you are only a couple of minutes walk from a beautiful beach; the sunsets are something to behold. It's a lovely, safe beach for paddling and collecting shells along the shore.
There is also a ramp and path that leads all the way to Hunstanton where you can get some of the best fish and chips and ice cream Norfolk has to offer!
The caravan park itself is a nice mix of calm and hustle bustle; it's never too busy and you can take part in as much or as little as you like.
Smallman & Sons also provide free activity passes for all who stay at the caravan, which allow you to partake in the activities available on site including Crazy Golf, Swimming, sports court and family entertainment at the Clubhouse. There is also a play park and launderette should you need it.
The swimming pool is an indoor heated pool, which is great for our little Steps superstars, but on warmer days the roof opens up so you can enjoy the warmth of the sun whilst you swim.
The caravan is also packed full of toys, games and activities which cater for children of all ages, as well as a DVD player. One special cuddly toy you'll find waiting for you is Fluffy Bear - he is the caravan's mascot and he loves to go on adventures with the children during their holiday. He has a diary for the children to fill in so we can see all of the wonderful adventures you have been having.
Holiday breaks are available Monday to Friday and Friday to Monday. There is a small charge to cover laundry, cleaning and maintenance of the caravan, and pets are welcome at no extra charge. Full details can be obtained from Steps.
We really hope families of Steps Conductive Education Centre enjoy their holidays at Terry Lee Lodge - don't forget to share your photos with us!
