Absolutely brilliant

Wow! My first time at potters and I was very impressed. Food, entertainment, rooms were absolutely fantastic. I had a very relaxing time, the food was really lovely, plenty to pick from. Beds were comfy, the staff really can not do enough for you. I will be back.

More than a great holiday

We "found" Potters at Hopton 12 years ago, and my only regret was not finding it sooner. For us, the best holiday resort in the UK by far: good food, great staff and facilities, and simply outstanding shows (close to London West End standard). I've not yet found anywhere better... I'd like to thank Potters for again providing not only great holidays but also what I'm now starting to regard as an extended family. Once you go a few times there is a certain "magic" that I find hard to put my finger on. Potters continues to be my "go to" UK resort. Thank you!
