About The Lodge

Oxnead House is home to four luxurious holiday cottages that are furnished to a high degree of comfort and style. Ideally located in the heart of the Norfolk Broads in the village of Rockland St Mary, the cottages sit within one acre of gardens belonging to the owners 19th Century traditional farmhouse - the perfect place to relax and unwind in a peaceful setting within the Southern Broads.

Ideally placed, the cottages are excellent for those who enjoy the many delights of the countryside and its wildlife. They are just two hundred yards from Rockland Staithe where leisure boats moor and the village pub, and are within walking distance of the RSPB Reserve at Rockland Broad and Wheatfen Nature reserve.

This is an excellent location for those who enjoy cycling, walking, bird watching, canoeing, fishing or simply relaxing in a lovely Broadland setting. The cottages are completely self-contained with private gardens, making them well suited for families, friends, couples or larger groups if more than one cottage is booked at the same time.

The area offers plenty of attractions and places to visit. Within just a few miles of the cottages you have the medieval City of Norwich with its Norman cathedral, heritage buildings, excellent shopping and fine selection of eating establishments. The Norfolk coastal resorts of Great Yarmouth and Cromer are too within easy reach as are the Suffolk Heritage resorts and the sunrise coast of Lowestoft and Southwold. Why not spend a day exploring the winding country lanes, visit Strumpshaw Steam Museum (open early April to the end of September), have a meal in one of the many village pubs, visit the County towns of South Norfolk and North Suffolk or one of the stately homes and gardens within the area - whatever the age, there is something to suit everyone!
