Excellent 4, Very good Average Poor And as a young man he would cycle from Norwich to Great Yarmouth every year to spend his holidays in a tent at Caister Camp, established in as an all male socialist camp. Herbert wrote how he loved the friendly camaraderie of camp life. He was one of the lucky ones to survive the trenches and the infamous Battle of Somme.
Returning home safely he set about building the first permanent and mixed use holiday Camp with timber huts. Funded entirely by his winnings, Herbert realised his dream; a dream that has grown to become a national institution. Over years, The Potter Family, through four generations, has built on those early pioneering dreams. Brian and Judy taking on the challenge of the foreign holiday packages and re-developing and re-inventing a seasonal holiday camp to a year round 5 star Resort.

A Brief History of Potters Resort. Herbert Potter inspired by friendliness of Caister Camp.
Hotel Review: Potters Resort, Norfolk
View Detail. He is inspired and had the idea to build a permanent holiday camp, with wooden chalets and main buildings instead of temporary tented structures. He fights and survives the legendary Battle of Somme, returning home in Herbert, along with brother Arthur find the perfect bit of land on a bike ride to the coast, through a hedge. The Hemsby site is sold to Maddieson's with Herbert and brother Arthur splitting the proceeds.
Herbert leaves the reins of the camp to his daughter Rosa and her new husband, the local policeman Leslie Groome, as he opens a new site closer to the sea. The land is purchased from the Colman family, who themselves are a successful family in the area and the makers of a popular mustard. Potters Beach Camp along with every other camp along our popular coastline is requisitioned by the army and many of the buildings and huts even the grand piano are used for firewood to keep soldiers warm in the winter. Whilst many cut their losses after the war, Potters Beach Camp re-opens amidst a UK seaside holiday boom, with people heading to the coast in celebration of victory.
With everyone holidaying, the Potter Family find it hard to recruit and are effectively running the camp on their own. From opening up in the morning, cooking breakfast and serving the hundreds of guests with the sole help of Mrs Black the eventual and legendary long term restaurant manageress through to being the last to close the bars at night.
Founder of Potters, Herbert passes away aged Alongside brother Arthur, Herbert opened Potters in Hemsby in ; the first mixed use and permanent holiday camp. Having moved sites in the early days, Potters would become, in the decades ahead, a national institution that many others looked to as a blueprint.
