    “Slight misinterpretation in the photos.”

    On the Web site it doesn't show the owners garage right near the house making the access path very restricted, also the photos show table and chairs on the grassed area but are actually on the gravel outside the lodge making them less appealing, the kettle was badly furred up with lime scale, there was no pressure warning that it is a hard water area causing that problem, no choice for the welcome pack , we prefer brown bread not white, I need sugar free jams as I'm diabetic not loaded with ...

    Many thanks for your feedback. We have never received a complaint in relation to the generous welcome pack provided at the property, so we are disappointed to hear of your comments in relation to this. Over the past four years we have received consistently complimentary reviews, which show that all the facilities at the Lodge are of the highest level of satisfaction, so we are sorry if these issues affected your stay. - Sykes owner relations

The property

This recently built captivating modern cottage is situated immediately to the rear of the owners’ residence, which in itself stands in a half-acre of mature garden.

The Lodge is separated from the main house by a sunny gravelled courtyard and has an adjacent raised walled lawn area suitable for afternoon tea.

Although the convenient dedicated walled guest parking bay is just off the driveway entrance The Lodge enjoys a quiet, secluded and peaceful position well back from the road.

With two bedrooms, including a ground-floor single and a first-floor king-size, it makes a brilliant set up for a small family looking to explore the Norfolk region.

Access to the lodge is around the back of the owner’s house and along the path to your very own front door, you can unload luggage if more convenient by driving up to the main house.

Unpack your belongings into the ample wardrobe space, with the first-floor boasting a spacious cupboard area, so you won’t have to worry about where to store your wetsuit for when you take a trip to the beach at Great Yarmouth.

Take a seat in the spacious lounge and open up the large patio doors to let in the summer’s fresh breeze; with the owner previously working in the hotel industry, you can be sure that each room has been tastefully decorated to a high standard.

The living room also offers a lovely dining area to enjoy a home-cooked meal, when you aren’t indulging in one of the many eateries found in the bustling city centre of Norwich, with the kitchen fully equipped with everything you could need to prepare those family favourites.

To prepare for the busy day ahead, get ready at the first-floor dressing table underneath the skylight with a cup of tea, a bright and airy spot offering a traditional aspect to the contemporary property.

Head outside onto the raised lawn area to enjoy a spot of reading under the sunlight, a tranquil setting where you can get some peace and quiet.

Hop in the car and explore the local area of Long Stratton, with a variety of shops, lovely longstanding pubs, takeaways and tea rooms.

It makes for a wonderful day out for all.

After an morning mosey in the nearby villages head on into the city of Norwich, with an outstanding cathedral to observe, a selection of galleries, museums, and theatre experiences, and tourist attractions to visit, this bustling area is popular with everyone who visits Norfolk.

For a day at the beach, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Southwold are the places to be, or take a trip to the Broads before soaking in the sun in the Norfolk countryside with Cromer and Sheringham being only an hours drive on the north coast.

There’s something here in Norfolk for everyone to enjoy.

A perfect base for exploring the many amenities of the surrounding areas of Norfolk, The Lodge at Orchard House is a prime spot for a family holiday.
