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.


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


Well equipped, and very comfortable. The owners were very polite and kept in touch and were on hand to answer any questions. The Old Cart Lodge had everything we needed for a very relaxing weekend. The hot tub was an added and very welcome addition. Would definitely recommend.

Miss S,

We had an absolutely lovely stay at The Old Cart Lodge. Communication from Norfolk Cottages and the owner were fantastic throughout, including when rebooking due to covid restrictions. It was really lovely to arrive and discover a Christmas tree and decorations to make our trip away feel extra special. Would definitely stay again.
