The property

This wonderful lodge has been hand-built by the owner and offers a tranquil escape, ideal for couples and solo travellers.

Situated on the edge of the lake on the owners' beautiful estate, this lodge has spectacular wildlife straight from the door, yet just a few minutes’ walk from the village centre of East Harling.

Step up on to the decked area with far reaching views over the lake; this is an ideal spot for enjoying a morning coffee while planning your day, that is if you can tear yourself away from your lodge and it's surroundings!

Step in from the decking via the bi-fold doors to reveal a cosy, beautifully presented light and airy open plan living area with everything you could need for your stay.

The kitchen is completed to a high standard, and the bedroom is located to the back of the lodge and has an en-suite shower room.

Guests staying at the lodge can enjoy this lovely estate; there is a beautiful riverside picnic area with thatched gazebo alongside the River Thet which runs through the estate, and a one acre lake with specimen fishing is available.

The village of East Harling is just a short walk away and has everything you could need for your stay but there is plenty to do both close by and a short drive or cycle away.

Many visitors enjoy a visit to Banham Zoo and Thetford Forest is also close by, with excellent off road cycling, wildlife, walking routes and a number of other outdoor activities and events throughout the year.

The historical and vibrant city of Norwich is easily accessible from the lodge and worth a visit with its excellent range of restaurants, shops and bars.

Just ten minutes by car is Snetterton motor racing circuit, an absolute must for motorsport fans as it plays host to a number of major sporting events such as the British Touring Car and the British Superbikes Championships.

A perfect lodge to relax at but with the advantage of so much to enjoy close by.
