  • "We had a wonderful peaceful holiday at Tamaura Lodge."

    So nice to stay somewhere that is so peaceful and not overlooked. Loved sitting outside watching and listening to the wildlife. We had everything we needed for our stay. We did have a couple of minor problems but Kay responded immediately and had it put right.

  • "The property was lovely, but unfortunately only had comfort seating for 6 people when there were severn of us."

    One of the two seater sofas was not supportive and you rolled into the middle. The crockery and glasses were hit and miss as there was not severn of everything. It was disappointing that only the downstairs bedroom had a wardrobe. That left 6 people living out of bags. It was also difficult not being able to control the times that the heating came on. It came on early in the morning when we were still in bed, which left the property like a sauna and some having headaches, and went off early evening which caused us an issue as we had a member of the party at 93 and a member of the party with a disability and limited movement very cold. On the plus side, the layout of bedrooms and bathroom facilities were great. Three bathrooms was a luxury, although it would have been good to have bath mats to put on the floor. The towels provided were a nice touch, however some of them were hand towel size which is not easy when you're expecting a bath sheet or something to at least be able to wrap around you when getting out the shower. The water was very hot at all times and you could run all three showers and not lose pressure or temperature. The sofa bed was very comfy and where it was situated enabled it to be left made up at all times. The secure fence around the property and outside light was great for having a dog.

  • "Very nice lodge in general and we had a lovely few days as a family."

    Was kept nice and warm and kids appreciated wifi. Few bits were tired, mattresses very soft and found uncomfortable but we are used to firm at home. Kitchen bits, trays etc could do with replacing and washing up sponge bit yuk which I’d have thought would be new for each arrival. Washing Mac and tumble dryer we didn’t use but nice to have in case. Nice enclosed garden. Couldn’t rate bar area as wasn’t open but was out of season I guess. Lovely little walk round the forest with the pooch and the nearest pub up on the main road was very reasonable and nice home cooked food with dogs welcome. I would stay again

  • "When we arrived at the lodge it was everything is said it was in the description."

    We all had a great time and enjoyed the open space and forest walks with the dogs who had a brilliant time running through the woods. We took them out everyday into the forest and it was great to just have the forest right next to the cabin. If I'm totally honest there was a couple of things that needs attention. The 2 x 2 seater sofas are not ideal for comfort they are too small uncomfortable and not ideal for large groups. There was only a sweeping brush, no hoover which would have been handy to have due to having dogs. Apart from that we had a brilliant time and would highly recommend the accommodation.

  • "The cabin was excellent, very clean and inviting, with the bathrooms especially being huge and we loved having a fold out dining table so that we could choose where it went."

    The garden is fully enclosed (more like a paddock) with chicken wire over the fence so dogs are completely safe. Our two loved racing around as they could do a full lap of the cabin. The only issue during the week was that whatever is in the rear garden with the fence around it (maybe septic pump or something?) came on roughly every 40 mins for 30 seconds, and during the night this was very audible from the bedrooms. We managed to sleep alright most of the week regardless, but did notice that we would wakeup randomly during the night, probably due to this noise. It was also louder some days than others. The only other notable thing wasn't directly related to the cabin, more the site: when we arrived there was a pickup truck with a chap burning stuff in a skip directly next to the cabin plot, and during the first couple of days of our stay there were a lot of JCBs moving around the Pentney Lakes site doing various bits of work, so it wasn't the most serene environment outside the cabin from that perspective. However, it's only a half hour drive to the coast for walks and Bliney wood is literally less than 500 metres up the road which is gorgeous to walk around. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and the cabin had everything we needed to make self catering as easy as possible.

The property

Nestled amongst a cluster of idyllic log cabins on the wonderful Pentney Lakes, you will find the beautiful yet rustic cabin of Tamaura Lodge. Surrounded by tranquil lakes and incredible scenery, this welcoming abode offers the perfect base for an unforgettable adventure in the great outdoors. Step inside the open-plan living space and be greeted by a homely seating area, sociable dining space and a well-equipped kitchen, together creating a delightful setting in which to entertain your nearest and dearest. Admire the character and charm of the exposed logs that decorate the walls as you relax and unwind on the sofas, or show off you culinary skills in the kitchen with the help of the appliances that lie within. Continuing through the ground floor, an attractive double bedroom with its very own en-suite provides accessible accommodation for those guests travelling with limited mobility. Two further bedrooms can be found resting on the first floor and are comprised of both a twin, and an additional double bedroom with ensuite and access to the family bathroom. Make the most of warmer climates with mornings spent out on the decking as you indulge in a warm cup of tea and embrace the fresh Norfolk air, before grabbing your walking boots and setting off on a scenic stroll through the countryside to the centre of King's Lynn. Dating all the way back to the 12th century, this medieval town has all the essentials for a stress-free self-catering stay. Not only are there a good selection of pubs and restaurants to wine and dine in, but there are also many exciting attractions and imposing landmarks to be seen. Take a tour of the Lynn Museum and spot the ruins of Greyfriars Tower, before a wander along the 18th century trail of The Walks and a captivating adventure with the Stories of Lynn. Spend the afternoon in Castle Rising where you will find the ruins of the medieval fortress of the same name, and be sure to pay a visit to the grand dwelling of Sandringham Estate - a firm favourite with Her Majesty the Queen. Explore the shores of Hunstanton as you soak up the sunshine on Old Hunstanton Beach and see the Wreck of the Steam Trawler Sheraton, before embarking on an awe-inspiring hike along the vast landscapes of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With all this and more right at your feet, Tamaura Lodge is an excellent choice for your next escape to Norfolk, any time of year!

About the location

KING'S LYNN

Sandringham 9 miles; Snettisham 13.4 miles; Hunstanton 17 miles.

King's Lynn is a historic, medieval port dating back to the 12th century, situated on the River Great Ouse. A treasure trove for history lovers, the town boasts grand merchant houses, art galleries and museums, and the Custom House, built by Henry Bell in 1683, which is a Grade I listed building. The town retains its original winding streets and alleys, and boasts good shopping facilities, with a combination of national retailers and specialist shops, along with a selection of pubs and restaurants. Much of the surrounding Norfolk countryside is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with the West Norfolk coastline within easy driving distance. Hunstanton, in particular, is renowned for its sunsets and lovely beaches. Boat trips are available from several points along the coast, while the Norfolk Coast Cycleway runs from King's Lynn to Cromer. The impressive Visitor Centre at The Queen's fabulous country retreat, Sandringham, is also a short drive away and well worth a visit.
