Overview

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

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 bothThe Brown Party - 5th October 2018

Really enjoyed our stay! Perfect for a girls weekend away. Such a beautiful barn which had everything we needed. Cutlery draw well hidden - ha!

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful cottage we have loved it. We would recommend The Waters Edge Restaurant at Bramerton Woods End, the food is amazing and the scenery is too. Norwich is also lovely, the cathedral and castle are beautiful as well as the market etc. Southwold beach also is not far and it is wonderful there. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Wonderful cottage and very well appointed. Great hot tub.Mr Richard Gilbert - 16th June 2018
Absolutely loved the property - cannot fault it at all....thank you for a lovely stay. Will certainly use you again if this is the standard of your properties - even the whole booking process was so simple.Mrs Unnati Rennie - 14th June 2018
I stayed at The Old Cart Lodge for an extended stay when my baby was just 15 days old. Being on my own whilst my husband was at work at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital I was apprehensive about being so far away. Jenny and Lloyd were so kind to us that they completely turned things around for me. They were very knowledgeable about the area and gave me some beautiful places to visit e.g. Southwold beach, Horsey to see the seals, Burnham Market for a lovely lunch, Wells-next-to-sea for crabbing, train ride and beautiful beach, Holkham, Dinosaur Park and Cambridge. We have never had a dull moment at The Old Cart Lodge, it is very central for all the attractions. From the minute we arrived the place felt like home to us with family next door. It is beautifully decorated, tasteful and well equipped, cosy, comfortable and with a lovely outdoor secret garden for barbecues and hot tubs. We loved our stay here and will always have brilliant memories of this time. We would love to come back and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you both so much for making our time so happy. Kate Nathan and Freddie xx - 19th May 2018
Very relaxing stay in a gorgeous high spec lodge - cake was a lovely touch. Great local pub and friendly locals thank you. Sue Steve and Julie - 8th January 2018
It was very cold weather but the property stayed nice and warm. The owners seem to be proactive in responding to advice, left by guests in a book provided, for improvements such as more storage in the kitchen etc which is more than ample with the changes. The hot tub was ready and available but we didn't make use of it as there was such a cold wind blowing. I would think it needs some sort of screening to give some protection. Over all it was a lovely, bright but cosy property and the owners have done a great job presenting it.Simon Joyce - 12th December 2017
Very warm and comfy place. Finished to a high standard. Lovely pubs nearby The Joyce Party - 8th December 2017
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Homemade cake was extra special touch. Really nice to find somewhere dog friendly The Ibrahim Party - 4th December 2017
Very comfortable place and just right for our short break. Thank you.Gabriel, Hilary & Trevor - 31st October 2017
Really comfortable stay and cottage was finished to a high standard. Thank you very much! Cake was lush! Kevin & Lisa - 12th October 2017
Had a great two weeks here. It felt like being in a hotel, with all the lovely bedding, towels etc. The barn conversion has been finished to a very high standard. Cake and milk in the fridge was a nice touch. All the lovely countryside and rivers around the property are stunning. Would happily recommend the barn as a great place to stay. James Nicki & daughter Sophia - 28th September 2017
Lovely holiday home, so well done. Had a great time exploring. Many thanks for the cake and milk, ready for a much needed cup of tea on arrival. Dave & aAlison - 10th September 2017
The owner (Jenny) was extremely helpful and always on hand if there were any issues. It was a delight to stay at this lodge.Mr Jason Nagle - 5th September 2017
Hotel standard accommodation with all the flexibility of self catering. It was perfect for us. Lovely touch of homemade cake and everything so comfortable. We loved the hot-tub and the fantastic shower. We ate dinner here and everything we needed was here and super clean. We chose this cottage as it was pet free as 2 of us have allergies so it was brilliant for us. Thank you. Robert, Nicola, Olivia & Holly - 24th August 2017
Lovely cottage, hot tub and garden. Really enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much.Ami, Jamie, Amelia & Evie - 23rd July 2017
