The East Anglia region

The Norfolk Broads is England's largest area of wetlands with over two hundred kilometres of navigable waterways which have been popular with holidaymakers since the C19th. Famous for it's big skies, long sandy beaches and picturesque rolling countryside Norfolk also boasts one of the driest and sunniest climates in the country. We are located a few miles from the medieval city of Norwich with its Norman cathedral and castle, excelent shopping, theatres, cinemas and lovely restaurants and pubs. Within easy reach are the Norfolk coastal resorts from Cromer to Great Yarmouth and the delights of the Sunrise coast between Lowestoft and Southwold and the Suffolk Heritage resorts. Visit the charming county towns of South Norfolk and North Suffolk, explore the winding country lanes, have a meal in the plentiful village pubs, or take in the Stately homes and gardens, historic sites and museums, they are all worth exploring.


Rockland St Mary is located approximate 7 miles south of Norwich with good road connection to the surrounding area. Although quiet and laid back, it is very popular with walkers, birdwatchers, fishermen, boaters and visitors who simply want to get away from the crowds. Only 200 yards from Rockland Staithe, and the village pub, on the famous Wherrymans Way footpath, within easy walking distance of Wheatfen Nature reserve and the RSPB Reserve at Rockland Broad, the cottages are perfectly placed to enjoy the delights of the countryside and the wildlife which this lovely habitat sustains. The relatively undiscovered Rockland Broad hosts a wide variety of migrating birds as well as year round residents such as marsh harriers, barn owls, herons and waterfowl.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review for your stay.

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the Lodge and liked what we have done with it. It is the best reward we can have to know that you had a good time and have taken happy memories away with you.
