    Had a great week exploring the location was perfect for getting around Norfolk. On arrival a loverly welcome package from Alison was waiting for us, and we would like to thank Alison for looking after us throughout our stay. The whole family agreed that we would love to revisit at a later time.

    !!! And the gift of chocs, wine and crisps was a lovely added bonus. It was spotlessly clean, beds really comfy and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Norwich. Thank you.

  • "Nice property in a good location ."

    The pictures do not do the property justice it’s more spacious than it looked in photos. Enjoyed the wood burner, Simon had set it up for our first night all we had to do is light the paper and sit back with our complimentary bottle of wine ! The hot tub was a good size and not overlooked. Well equipped kitchen , good size fridge and freezer only problem we had was the oven shelf is too small for the oven and falls down . Down stairs bathroom has a lovely walk in shower and a huge bath and the underfloor heating in the open plan living area is a nice touch .Overall we had a lovely stay and would love to come back , Thanks again .

  • "Really lovely accommodation."

    Comfortable, luxurious and cosy. Loved the wood burner and the hot tub. There was a detailed info pack, sugar, cooking oil and washing up liquid as well as milk and a bottle of fizz. Lots of little details which made for a great break. The hosts were very attentive and responded quickly to queries. This is how holidays rentals should be done.

    We stayed with some family friends and our two 3 year olds - so much to do in the surrounding areas and although it was only a short break, we could happily have stayed there for longer. The hosts could not have been more friendly and welcoming! The living area is also significantly bigger than it looks in the photos!

  • "Unfortunately the hot tub wasn’t working for the first 3 days."

    It was fixed for the Monday. The accommodation was very comfortable, lots of room & both showers were amazing! TV reception was hit & miss, as was the wifi at times but it wasn’t a major issue as we were out a lot of the time. We did have a bit of an issue with ‘flies’ but I think it is just due to the time of year.

  • "Oak Tree Lodge is exceptionally well appointed and has been tastefully modernised."

    The courtyard is private and sheltered so that we could sunbathe even in April and the hot tub is a treat. It is situated only a few miles from Wroxham for access to the Broads and Norwich is only 5 miles away. Nearby - five minute walk across the common - The Old Rectory is a freindly restaurant with very good food and The White Horse is a fifteen minute walk away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "We loved the double vaulted ceiling in the lounge including a large woodburning stove (wood provided for one evening)."

    The open layout downstairs was well thought out and the whole place was lovely and warm/cosy. The wine and goodies on arrival were a lovely touch. Everything we needed was provided. The hot tub was brilliant. It worked very well, heating to temperature and the different coloured lights in the dark were great. It was in a lovely private enclosed garden so you could really relax. A key to get through the patio door from the master bedroom to the hot tub would be even better. Lovely as the downstairs wet room was, water from the powerful shower did not drain away that easily so the floor got quite wet. However, the power shower was lovely and this wasn't a huge issue when the underfloor heating kicked in. Overall we had a wonderful weekend here.

    It was so useful to us to have some milk in the fridge, cooking oil and children’s plates In the cupboard as well as toys and books. The lodge is perfect for those with children. Our toddler is in bed by 7pm so it was nice to have the hot tub to occupy us in the evenings. The garden is enclosed so he could safely toddle around outside. We also had fun collecting leaves and splashing in puddles in the woods behind the lodge. Alison also provided us with a travel cot and a high chair too which saved a lot of space in the car.

  • "We had a fantastic stay at Oak Tree Lodge."

    We wanted somewhere comfortable with a hot tub for a relaxing girls weekend to catch up and do some crafting. The open living area was lovely and comfortable. The bedrooms were very comfortable and a fantastic size. The only small gripes we had were that the oven was not the greatest, perhaps a temperature issue, even putting it on a low temperature burnt our food very quickly, and the dishwasher wasn't able to clean most of the dishes so we had to rewash most of it. But despite those couple of grumbles all 3 of us thought the cottage was brilliant and would be keen to return for another girls weekend and I'd be keen to return with my family too. The hot tub was great treat too, even in the cold wet weather it was lovely to sit outside in. Thoroughly recommend this cottage.
