About Garden Lodge

Garden Lodge is not only very comfortable inside but, because it is part of a former horticultural college, it also has exceptionally lovely gardens too. The countryside location is perfect, being just a short drive from the beautiful Norfolk Broads, spectacular beaches and the ancient city of Norwich. It comfortably sleeps ten people in five bedrooms, and it is ideal for big families or groups of friends searching for the perfect self-catering holiday cottage in Norfolk.

Norfolk is a holiday destination with something for everyone. Garden Lodge is perfect for a holiday at any time of the year (short breaks available out of peak season), and because it is so conveniently central, you can plan a holiday full of fun even if you only have a few days. Just a few miles away, the Norfolk Broads are spread out in all their glory, with miles of waterways to explore, footpaths to follow and cycling routes leading you through the beautiful scenery of the national park.

Great Yarmouth and all the traditional fun of a seaside resort beckons twelve miles away, with the Blue Flag beach and family-friendly amenities having been a favourite for generations. For beachgoers who are happy to swap fewer facilities for greater peace, Winterton and Sea Palling make good alternatives, but with 15 miles of beaches around Great Yarmouth, there is no shortage of choice.

Norwich is a wonderful university city with more than a millennia of history, and you can see parts of its heritage not only in its architecture but also in place names, such as "gate" which means "street in Danish and is a remnant from the Viking invasion of 1004. Three hundred years later, its successful wool industry meant Norwich was close to London in economic importance, and fire, plague and Henry VIII's Reformation also left their mark. Today, it is a vibrant city with thriving arts and literature scenes, great restaurants, theatres and shops.

The owners of Garden Lodge want to ensure their guests have a fun and relaxing time and are happy to help with restaurant or beauty treatment bookings, recommendations for day trips and even arranging bike hire and taking delivery of your online grocery order so that everything is waiting for you when you arrive. Guests of Garden Lodge also have exclusive use of the seven-person outdoor hot tub, as well as the private use of the heated swimming pool (between May and September).

Accommodation Comprises:

Garden Lodge has a contemporary feel with a private patio and garden. Accommodation is all on one level with consideration given in the layout and to wheelchair users.

  • A welcoming entrance hall leads guests through to an inner hall, off which is the living/dining room, kitchen and bedrooms.
  • Clever use of colours marks the separate "zones" in the space. The kitchen is sleek and modern yet still homely and the sort of place where friends and families are happy to cook and socialise.
  • Ten chairs sit around the long rectangular dining table where an understated chandelier adds a touch of pared-down elegance.
  • Comfortable sofas and armchairs easily seat everyone, giving access to the flatscreen smart TV, Glass doors open onto the paved terrace and garden, more than doubling the living space in warm weather.

  • The three twin rooms each have two full-sized single beds with proper storage and decor that is suitable for children or adult guests, depending on the age of your party.
