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 incl)
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 favourite things.
Bringing the children? We can put you in touch with a reliable CRB checked babysitter so that you can take a break and maybe have a grown up's only evening out?
A meal out - need to pre-book a restaurant or taxi? As bookings usually start on Fridays guests could find that the best restaurants are booked up for the peak weekend evenings ... we can recommend places suitable for your party and give you their details prior to arrival so that you can make guaranteed reservations.
…. Or maybe its a special occasion and you want be indulgent and have a dinner party arranged at Garden Lodge? - We will put you in touch with a highly reputable experienced catering company to do just that.
Hen weekend or just a girly getaway? - What about a qualified beauty therapist coming over to pamper you with anything from a manicure to an aromatherapy massage - a full brochure is available.

The East Anglia region
A prime holiday area with attractions for all tastes, fantastic coastline with excellent sandy beaches. The broads national park - wonderful for lovers of wildlife, fishing and boating. The City of Norwich - a great shopping centre and a historic city with much to see and do. Great nightlife too!
Nearby to good restaurants and pubs, a short distance to Wroxham 'the heart of the broads' where you can hire a boat, explore the rivers an maybe moor at one of the many riverside pubs for lunch? Fantastic beaches either at the lively resort of Great Yarmouth with many attractions and amusements for the children or to one of the quiet sandy beaches - superb for a relaxing time away from a hectic everyday life.
