Description

In an area dating back to the Norman conquest, The Old Cart Lodge in the Norfolk Broads is ideally situated for families and friends wanting to explore historic sights and natural beauty, all within easy reach of the vibrant city of Norwich.

Peaceful simplicity

Simplicity and comfort are the rules at this sympathetically refurbished self-catering barn. Boasting an elegant open-plan kitchen, dining, and sitting area, and framed with a feature brick wall, beamed cathedral ceiling, and bi-fold windows out to the patio and hot tub, The Old Cart Lodge combines a tasteful mix of traditional charm and modern ease. Further benefiting from plush sofas in the sitting area, and delightfully decorated little nooks and crannies throughout the house, this luxury self-catering getaway accentuates its character through an unpretentious sense of style.

Enjoy cups of coffee and easy mornings at the rustic dining room table. After a day exploring the area on foot or by bicycle, the fully-equipped kitchen is a great place to put together a light snack or even cook a hearty meal for some al fresco dining on the patio. Then, when the stars are out and the children are in bed, pour yourself a nice glass of wine and slip into the hot tub for a romantic wind-down to your day.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Past the open-plan area of The Old Cart Lodge, the king-size master suite enjoys a high, beamed ceiling, bright views, and an en-suite shower room with WC. Next, there is a twin room for the children or other guests, with more bright views and a comfortable rattan chair for much-needed solitude, and peaceful reading in the mornings. In addition to the en-suite shower room in the master suite, guests have access to a family bathroom with WC.

Practicalities

We welcome one well-behaved dog. Bathrobes are provided. A tumble dryer is available for use if required. Mobile phone reception is variable.

Reviews

Lovely staying in very well thought out and comfortable home. Loved the hot tub each night. Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. Great personal touches. Visited Southwold and loved the quality shops on pier and high street. Coffee shop on the corner of Victoria Street that you can take your dog in and also Adnams has one too. Had a huge meal at The Surlingham Ferry which is only two miles away on the river and dogs welcome. Wroxham is also great for a visit. Norwich Cathedral was beautiful there were so many great places and thank you for making this possible.

Deborah H,

We have had the most lovely break staying in your beautiful lodge and exploring he equally beautiful Norfolk. Welcoming hosts with such a lovely place to stay. We have really enjoyed `Norfolk and especially the seal spotting, nature and countryside - hot tub and cake were lovely additions.

What a wonderful way to spend our honeymoon - we couldn't have asked for any more. The hot tub made our time here and the lemon cake was delicious (my favourite). We have made some very special memories thank you.

Such a fantastic week will recommend to everyone! We loved the Teles Patisserie down the road and I had so much fun at Bewilderwood and various beaches, also loved hiring a boat at Wroxham. Thank you so much, beautiful house, week and holiday.

Action packed great week! Base camp was spot on, very comfortable and the kids loved it. Liked the New Inn for a casual visit. The Waters Edge at Bramerton was lovely. Roar, Bewilderwood, Fritton all attended. The Riverside complex beside the Norwich City Stadium and station is easy to get to and good for bowling, cinema food etc.

Lived up to our expectations. Have had a lovely week, weather so hot but cooled off in the hot tub. Lemon drizzle cake was good! Beccles and Southwold well worth visiting and all in all a lovely week from start to finish. Jenny and Lloyd most welcoming.

Beautiful cottage! Very high end finishes! We will be returning!!!!

Miss L B,

The Old Cart Loge has been beautifully restored and is both stylish and functional with a well-planted, small courtyard garden. Inside the decor is neutral and sophisticated with absolutely everything you could need. Bright and airy, cosy and the real feeling of luxury. AND a hot tub :) Location wise it's a great spot for exploring Norfolk with close access to Norwich and the A47. It's only a short drive - or good walk - to the river with a good selection of pubs and eateries. Thoroughly recommended.

mr P B,

We had a fab stay in this beautiful, well equipped lodge. Thanks for the cake & the thoughtful touches (like the doggie towel !)

A beautifully restored and furnished to a very high standard barn. The welcome pack of milk, biscuits, home made cake and voucher for the New Inn was very well received. The owners were very welcoming, a lovely couple. Truly the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in, would willingly pick up The Old Cart Lodge and pretty garden and take home with us. Will be back next year as we fell in love with it. Thank you both
