We have never stayed at a cottage with so many little touches to make you comfortable.. Don is so friendly and welcoming and makes the stay extra special. Nothing is too much trouble. The cottage is set in the most beautiful surroundings and we had a walk every morning, going out the gate and along the avenue of trees without any traffic, just horses, deer and squirrels. We will definitely be back.

This was our second visit (hopefully not our last) to this tranquil treasure of Norfolk.. Words can not describe the amazing scenery in which the lodge sit's, to see munjac deer green woodpeckers hares and partridge in the surrounding grounds to name but a few !! The freedom given by the owner to enjoy his garden along side his knowledge and wisdom of the surrounding area made our holiday complete. The lodge has everything you need for a very comforable stay. Would go back in a heartbeat if we could. We arrived as friends but we felt like family as we drove away.Thank you Don for making this a wonderful holiday .
Mr Smith, June 2019

The location is superb and the wildlife is a joy to watch with deer, hares and hawks all visiting us during our stay. The owner is the most generous of hosts and he has become a valued friend. The Lodge is a peaceful oasis and yet is 5 minutes from the A11 from which all parts of Norfolk can be reached. Norwich is some 15 minutes away and is a fantastic place to visit for meals, entertainment or just sightseeing. Cannot recommend highly enough.

The peace and quiet of the location and the owner was so attentive and just couldn't do enough for us. It was a perfect base from which to tour the area. The lodge was very spacious and the woodland setting was great with fallow deer just outside the window and hares boxing in the paddock facing the lodge, it was just great.
