Stay a while in the grounds of the Holkham Estate. Indulge in your unique access to the parkland. Savour the sumptuous yet simple delights of South Lodge West. Its location, inherent comfort. You’ll never want to leave.

Glorious gatehouse

South Lodge West enjoys a more than ample perch on the southern boundary of the Holkham Estate. The little-used back road next to which it resides leads inwards to the Estate’s magnificent obelisk. And outwards to glorious North Norfolk villages and the seaside haven of Wells-next-the-Sea. In other words, you’re perfectly positioned to discover this glorious corner of eastern England - on foot or two wheels, as you choose.

You’ll fall in love with the parkland that you’re invited to explore during your stay. While the gatehouse is dog friendly and you can enjoy a lovely private garden, it's requested that dogs are kept on leads in the grounds. Wander one way to Holkham Bay via the beach and another through woodland and you’ll only be left wanting more Norfolk air.

Although not the original South Lodge, this mid 1800s replacement has been superbly restored to provide a glorious base for Norfolk mini breaks. Respectful of Teulon’s architecture in every nook, the furnishings continue to complement the age and design of the building, and present a heavenly escape just for you two. Delightfully tasteful yet exquisitely simple, providing everything you need beautifully without clutter or fluff.

Over the threshold and in you come to a calm and cosy sitting room. How quickly will you crank up the wood burning stove? How long will you linger near to it, in the sofa designed just for two, soaking up your surroundings and the indulgence of your day? There’s a petite kitchen area with microwave, kettle and toaster otherwise encouraging you to enjoy the delicious and plentiful eateries of The Burnhams, Wells and beyond.

Wander on, all on one level, to your bedroom and bathroom. It’ll be tough to get up in the morning, we know, but the call of fresh air and exploration will work on you quicker than you might think.

Bedroom and bathroom

One bedroom with king size bed and separate shower room. White linen and plump white towels are provided.


Beautiful historic lodge full of character in an absolutely fantastic setting. Accommodation is exactly as described, small but it is all there and very clean and cosy. Everything is close by from shops, pubs, beaches but with this feeling of quiet. The Holkham park and beach have to be seen to be believed. Everywhere is dog friendly.

Mr E,

Lovely property for a couples break. Woodburner a real bonus when returning from a bracing walk around the estate!

Mrs T,

Thank you Norfolk Cottages for a wonderful week. The location of South West Lodge on the Holkham Estate was perfect for us. The small enclosed garden to the side of the property meant we could allow the dogs a toilet break early morning and late evening when we didn't want to walk them. We were able to walk the dogs (on leads) on the estate but preferred the short drive (5-10mins) to Holkham Beach. The car park pass you provided for Lady Anne Drive meant we could park for free a real bonus. Just having a microwave was not a problem! We ate at the Victoria Inn with our dogs (thank you for 10% off), enjoyed Chinese Take Away from the Fortune at Wells and French's Fish and Chips. The Co-op in Wells had a good selection of food and microwave meals too. We arrived late so the goodie bag with a selection of provisions and the Prossecco was appreciated. Lastly a big shout out for large fluffy bath sheets, a comfy bed and pillows, a log burner with logs, kindling and matches provided, which we used the day it poured for hours. Very happy will be booking again.

Previous Customer,

A most relaxing week walking miles of coastline and around the beautiful Holkham estate. Don't miss the walled gardens they are stunning. Perfect Lodge and lovely welcome pack.

Past Customer,

So nice to stay on the estate - Holkham. Our favourite relaxing place! Lodge has all required facilities for two people and very comfortable. Welcome pack was good but no butter for toasts or scones sadly. Great stay, looking forward to trying out the other lodges. Tour of the pack was fab and informative.

Past Customer,

Enjoyable & relaxing stay at the cottage. Our first visit to Norfolk will not be our last. Thank you.

Past Customer,

Our third lodge at Holkham and a really enjoyable week with especially good weather (Palmers Folly for its position amongst the wildlife, South Lodge East for the kitchen and South Lodge West for the bathroom!). Thanks for another lovely bag of goodies, much appreciated and Thank you Marcel for the TV help. Best meal of the week at The Victoria. We hope to be back again.

Mrs Angela H,

What a lovely gem! Just what we needed for our anniversary weekend. The cottage is amazing and the rest of the holkham Estate a real bonus. Thank you very much!

Mr Nick D,

A beautiful place to stay in a wonderful location. We have enjoyed exploring the area and beach, have done lots of walking. Thank you so much for the delicious hamper which we have enjoyed, what a lovely touch. Best wishes to you all

Mr David G,

A wonderful haven of tranquility and architecture. The lodge is a sensitive conversion and we are delighted to have found it.

Dr John T,

I could not have asked for more of a perfect place to spend my 50th! The lodge has been so warm and cosy to return to after the most spectacular walks! Looking forward to returning already!
