Garden Lodge is a large modern conversion of part of a former horticultural college, it is set within four acres of gardens and the owner's small Nursery. The lodge has it's own private enclosed garden although guests are also welcome to stroll through the majority of the owners gardens. Guests also have exclusive use of the private heated swimming pool (May - Sept) and the large 7-seat Hot Tub (all year).

Garden Lodge makes an ideal holiday location, being situated half way between the coast (10 miles) and the historic city of Norwich (approx.9 miles) which offers a wide variety of interest from its ancient castle and cathedral, to its excellent shopping facilities and its thriving riverside nightlife. The Norfolk Broads are all within a few miles of the property, and are a haven for those who enjoy boating, fishing and the beauty of the waterways. The east coast offers lovely sandy beaches, including the lively resort of Great Yarmouth (10 miles), and the quieter beaches at Winterton and Sea Palling. Shops, pubs and restaurants 2 ½ miles.

As we want our guests to have an extra special break we will offer to take delivery of your online grocery shopping and put it away prior to your arrival so that you can arrive to the cupboards and fridge stocked with your favorite things.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful rental property. Spotlessly clean and well maintained. Bedding crisp and whiter than white! Hot tub and pool checked regularly. Numerous outdoor games, plenty of play area for children, and all very safe. We even had good weather! Any criticism, yes, sharper kitchen knives, an extra chopping board, and better wi/fi/ internet access.

Over the years we've had many rental properties some good and some dreadful. Garden Lodge is without doubt one of the very best.
