  • "Little Lodge 1 is well decorated and extremely clean and tide throughout."

    The owners are very friendly and helpful. The location was quiet and peaceful yet within easy reach of many attractions. Highly recommended.

  • "It was thoughtful of Owner Jackie to provide milk, jam, bread and biscuits."

    The Property was well designed, nicely decorated and furnished and in a peaceful location. It would have been most helpful to have been made aware in advance that there was no Mobile or Wi-Fi Signal in the property. We had an very elderly relative in a poor state of health and daily contact with his care establishment could have been made in the evenings from our location.

  • "Very nice cottage, in a nice area by the river, when we arrived there was milk ..."

    Very nice cottage, in a nice area by the river, when we arrived there was milk and cheese in the fridge along with jam and marmalade, in the cupboard there was tea coffee, and biscuits, The owner whose name escapes me at the moment, called round to see if everything was ok, and to let us know that if we needed anything to give her a knock, she also said that on our departure day there was no pressure on leaving by ten, and to go when we were ready, a thoroughly relaxing break

  • "It's a lovely wooden interior lodge with all the facilities needed for two."

    Gets a bit warm in warm weather and you can't simply leave the windows open to cool as the biting insects are drawn in by the lights. No wi-fi, which would have been useful, especially as mobiles get no signal - unless you really want to be away from it all! We enjoyed ourselves. There's a Morrisons in Dereham 5 miles away and a very good general store in nearby Swanton Morley, and its well placed for Blickling Hall, Oxburgh Hall, Wells-by-the-sea and Norwich. We'd happily go again.

  • "First thing you notice when you enter Little Lodges is the cleanliness of the accommodation."

    The welcome pack provided by Jackie and Kevin is excellent and enables you to chill out with a drink and snack before tackling the unloading of your car.The Lodges are quiet and secluded with no passing traffic and the extensive grounds are meticulously maintained by Kevin.No wi-fi and intermittent phone reception may not suit everyone but can help for a truly relaxing 'get away from it all' week in a beautiful part of Norfolk.

  • "Spotless. Our second time at Little Lodges and guests are guaranteed to walk in on a freshly aired, thoroughly cleaned cottage."

    Jackie clearly takes pride in keeping the cottages clean, well maintained and having everything in working order and thinking of everything a customer might need for a self catering holiday. It's in a quiet country location just five minutes drive from the town of Dereham.

  • "The owners clearly take great pride in presenting a spotlessly clean, well equipped and well maintained holiday let."

    It’s situated down a private road, there is no passing traffic, it is so peacefully quiet. We have booked again already and would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

This spacious Bylaugh cottage offers an open plan living area with well-equipped kitchen with dining table and chairs, leading to a sitting area with French doors.

These doors lead onto a raised patio area with garden furniture where you can sit and relax while watching the local wildlife in the shared garden.

To the front of this Bylaugh cottage there is a private patio area with views across fields and woodland, perfect for reading a book or sipping a morning coffee while planning your day trip.

Within walking distance of this Bylaugh cottage is the River Wensum which is frequented by picnickers and swimmers in the summer months, with free fishing on stretches of the river less than 200 yards from the cottage.

Fishermen and walkers can enjoy beautiful fishing lakes, or you can take a leisurely country walk through Bawdeswell Heath with 37 acres of heathland or the nearby nature reserves of Hoe Rough and Foxley Wood which is an ancient woodland exceptionally rich in flora.

Just 3 miles from this Bylaugh cottage is the popular local market town of Dereham with a good selection of shops, supermarkets and restaurants as well as Tuesday and Friday markets, a sports centre and a cinema.

A lovely Bylaugh cottage that can be enjoyed any time of the year.

The large market town of Dereham offers an array of shops and supermarkets, a sports centre, cinema, church, museums, and the Mid Norfolk Heritage Railway. A traditional weekly market is held on Tuesday and Friday in the market square. The city of Norwich with its bars, restaurants, cathedral and castle, is 16 miles.
