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.


A lovely week away in a stunning property. Spotlessly clean, well-equipped and beautifully presented. Hot tub, lemon drizzle and a bottle or 2 of wine - what more could you want for a holiday! Thank you for being so hospitable. We hope to return one day.

Previous Customer,

Thank you so much ! We have had such a lovely rest in your beautiful cart lodge while our house is being renovated - everyone is sad to go, especially to leave the hot tub. Best lemon drizzle ever too.

Keith G,

What a lovely cottage I chose for my 50th birthday. Despite the storm on arrival and departure the weather was mostly nice and sunny. For exceptional vegetarian dining try Benedict's and Roger Hickmann's in Norwich. We loved seal watching at Horsey Gap, bird watching at Holkham National Nature Reserve and the cream tea at the orangery at Ketteringham Hall. We take so many lovely memories with us ! Hope to be back soon.

Barbara O,

We really enjoyed our retreat from the Christmas madness ! Lovely comfortable cottage and friendly hosts - what could be better ? !!

Lisa A,

We love coming to Norfolk and were excited to share it with two of our friends who unfortunately one of them was ill. Michael and I however had a fantastic time in The Old Cart Lodge - Jenny was so helpful and flexible. The lemon drizzle was delicious and the house is gorgeous. We went for a walk around Ludham and visited the Blickling Estate which is highly recommended. Thanks so much Jenny.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for a lovely long weekend and we realy enjoyed the walks around the cottage. Had a nice meal at The New Inn but had an amazing meal at Coldham Hall. The cottage is beautiful and very well kept and we really enjoyed the hot tub. The lemon drizzle cake, OMG amazing.

Previous Customer,

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.

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.
