"We loved this cottage."
Very clean, home from home, all you need provided, comfy bed, lovely wet room and great hot tub. Owners are very nice but not intrusive and they gave us a great welcome pack including a bottle of wine. The garden is lovely, private parking and the location is central to Cromer and Yarmouth alike. Very close to the Broads. Thank you
Great feedback thank you always welcome hope to see you again Property Owner
"Excellent comfortable cottage in great location and ideal for exploring north Norfolk."
Very close to the broads and not far from the beaches. Lovely hosts in Jon and Mandy
"Arrived after an arduous journey, Jon made us very welcome and showed us around the property explaining all we needed to know."
A welcome pack was much appreciated. Both Jon and Mandy were very helpful and the cottage was very clean and well appointed with everything needed for a restful stay with views over their lovely garden. Thank you both for a very pleasant stay. Trevor and Pat.

"The lodge is a lovely, well equipped cottage."
It is perfect for couples. The owners are friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. The cottage is set in the beautiful Norfolk village of Sco Ruston, next to the Broadland village of Coltishall, which makes it ideal base for seeing the best that Norfolk offers visitors, from the busy Wroxham, the beautiful Norfolk Broads to the delightful seaside towns of Sheringham and Cromer or the lively Gt Yarmouth.
"The Lodge was above our expectations, everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable was provided."
The host were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and relaxing
"Friendly owner and comfortable lodge."
Bed very comfy. There is some road noise but we didn't find that a problem. Hot tub lovely and great touch was the towels, robes and flip flops the owner supplied. Good location with easy access to the broads and the north coast.
"Just what we were looking for!"
Peace, comfort and totally relaxing!
"Just what we wanted, lovely, relaxing, most enjoyable"
"This was a beautiful little cottage , very well equipped and perfect for a relaxing getaway."
The owners were lovely and very helpful with local knowledge. The hot tub was amazing and certainly the icing on the cake . Would definitely visit again !
"The Lodge is a nice little cottage, with everything that you need."
It may be a little small inside, but you can still stay happily. The one thing we were not sure about is the road noise, as you are only about 20 yards from what is quite a busy road, even at night, and with the windows open, can be loud. The owners are very nice, and the arrival package they provide is very good. An ideal place for exploring the broads, and the town of Wroxham, where you can hire boats is only about 15 minutes away.
"The Lodge is a lovely gem, small and compact with one of the best welcome packs we have had over the years of holiday cottages we have been to."
Excellent hosts who sort out any minor problems you may come up against but are not intrusive. We highly recommend this property.
"Would really recommend this Lodge & will definitely be going back."
Jon & Mandy were great hosts especially the bottle of wine, bread, milk, butter & fruit they provided as our welcome pack. The hot tub was amazing after a long day out at the broads. Most of all was the tranquility & the value for money.
"After missing two holidays abroad that had to be cancelled due to the pandemic we were more than ready for a nice week away."
This was a really nice little cottage which was actually larger inside than it initially appeared. Lovely gardens, plenty of space to relax and easy parking off road. The lodge was extremely well fitted and included everything needed for a relaxing break. The bed was one of the comfiest I have ever slept in and the hot tub was the icing on the cake. The owners were friendly, helpful and basically stayed out of the way, which is ideal. We enjoyed ourselves so much that halfway through our week, we booked again for next summer. I think that says it all.
"Fantastic hosts Jon and Mandy made us feel very welcome indeed, gave us some good recommendations for visits and information about the local area."
The Welcome pack had all you needed to know! The hot tub was just lovely after a long drive. On arrival we received a selection of complimentary items including milk, orange juice, bread and butter. The cottage itself was very well equipped and furnished to a high standard. Would recommend booking into The Recruiting Sargent pub for food, especially the sea food. An ideal base for seeing the North Norfolk Coast.
"A real cosy cottage excellent for couples set in a relaxing quite part of Norfolk."
Owners very polite and helpful added bonus they live onsite. Hot tub well say no more every one loves a hot tub my partner used it a few times during our stay. Will definitely book this cottage again loads to do in the area local pub was very welcoming and would highly recommended food was out of this world. Thank you very much to owners for such a lovely weekend.
"A great base to slowly get up as lots of places are close by, whether it be a bracing winter sunny walk on Cromer Sands or checking out the sites (and shopping) of Norwich."
Ali Spice in Coltishal serves up a great curry based takeaway we didn't stay long enough to try the Chinese. If you are cooking for yourself the North Walsham has two big supermarkets and the Lodge Annex has all the pots and pans you need. Returning or arriving the hot tub aids chilling in the mental arena. The hosts are there, welcoming, nowt too much trouble, yet you have your own space. If it was closer to our home a return visit would be higher on the list.
"The hosts were very friendly and very helpful with directions."
The cottage was well maintained and very cosy.
"I was shocked at how many extras there were when we arrived."
A bottle of wine on the table, dressing gowns and towels provided for the hot tub along with flip flops. Food in the fridge, it was great to have the basic things to keep you going when you arrive. The whole atmosphere of the lodge was so relaxing, ideal if you just want to curl up on the sofa and read a book. 11/10 would recommend, absolutely loved it!
"We had a lovely, relaxing stay at The Lodge."
On arrival was welcomed by Jon who gave us a tour - the Welcome Pack and wine was a nice addition. The Lodge was very clean, well equipped, warm and comfortable. The hot tub rounded off each evening perfectly. An ideal base for visiting Norwich and a nice, scenic drive to the coast.
"Excellent cottage, super warm and cosy."
Lovely owners there to answer any questions and the hit tub is a magic touch. Would definitely recommend. 5 stars.
"Booked for two nights in November."
Upon arrival at the property we discovered that it was in fact a hidden gem and the pictures don't do it much justice. It's the ideal place for a relaxing get away, it's a bit out of the way though and we struggled to get a taxi so I'd recommend that you book a taxi in advance (nearby Wroxham is about a 10 minute car journey) The owners couldn't be more welcoming and friendly they were always happy to stop and chat. There was a selection of board games and dvd's for entertainment. The welcoming package left by the owners was also a nice thought. The lodge is an annex style building in the grounds of the owners house and the hot tub is over the other side of their garden but don't let that put you off as they were quite happy to let us use the tub even though it was later on in the evening. All in all it was a pleasant weekend in that part of the country and it was made better by staying in nice accommodation.
"In the description before booking you describe the Hot Tub as 'Sole Use'."
When the booking confirmation comes through it states 'Shared use' of the Hot Tub. I did not query this with you but thought I would sort it our with the owners and the former is correct i.e. Sole use. Another point, I looked the address up on Google Road maps and it is shown on the right hand side of the B1150 but Church Road takes you to another town entirely. I queried this with your agent who confirmed that it was on the right and that Church Road should not be in the address. I contacted the owners and they said Church Road is correct and Google have it wrong! Not only that but the property is on the left and the owners always sent explicit instructions because the post code covers a huge area and that is where the confusion comes in. They also sent details of the new Norwich bypass road which has only recently opened and is not on any road atlases yet
"Lovely cottage and great to have a hot tub too."
Everything was supplied ie dressing gowns, slippers, even make up wipes. There was also a dishwasher which was great. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely go back.
"The cottage was in a quiet rural location but only 5 minutes away from the village."
The owners, Jon and Mandy were extremely welcoming and had provided everything we needed, even down to providing a new bottle of Fairy liquid when they noticed that ours was getting low. The welcome pack was great; bread, milk, orange juice and even a bottle of wine-that's a first. They provided more than enough tea, coffee and sugar/sweeteners. The wet room was overstocked with toiletries and the cupboard full of toilet rolls (normally lucky to get one spare one). "The Lodge" is very disability friendly having parking right outside the door with a ramp, grab handles in the wet room and even a bath stool should you need to sit, excellent. Although the weather was a bit iffy, my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in Norfolk visiting National Trust properties and gardens using our "Gardeners World" two for one ticket. "The Lodge" at Coltishall has got to be on your" to visit" list.
"A beautifully appointed lodge annexe in a lovely setting."
Pretty garden with flowers & shrubs Hot tub with exclusive use for guests Helpful, friendly hosts All in all a delightful week in great surroundings
"The booking experience with Sykes was not good as the property was incorrectly advertised and despite pointing this out no apology (In fact they tried to justify their error!"
!) Having threatened to cancel the Holiday they then apologised. However this had nothing to do with The Lodge or the owners, which were both excellent. The Lodge was very clean, well appointed and in a great location. There was a very useful welcome pack and as we did not arrive till late was really well received. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants a fully equipped property which is very clean and central to the Broads
"The lodge is the most beautiful place you could wish to stay the gardens are ..."
The lodge is the most beautiful place you could wish to stay the gardens are amazing and the hot tub is a bonus we will going back next time we visit Norfolk
"A smart compact cottage providing a good base for exploring Norfolk."
Only drawback was the distance to a village for amenities like pubs and restaurants, meaning the car was needed for any outings.
"Excellent hosts, facilities, cleanliness and perfect location for visiting north Norfolk area."
"The owners were very friendly, could not do enough for you but were not in your face, hot tub was a bonus, The Lodge was very clean and everything you wanted for your needs, never had such a big welcome pack before, the area was just right to see Norfolk, will most certainly be going back."
"Can't fault it at all,every thing was perfect."
Lovely area, plenty to see coast ,country,and broads.
"A great place to stay for 2 people."
The sun room is lovely to while away an hour or so. The hot tub was an added bonus too! The owners are lovely and very helpful. Would recommend to friends and also return if we went back to Norfolk
"Wonderfully hospitable host, spotlessly clean accommodation with many extra little touches to ensure my stay was perfect."
Well and comfortably furnished, and a generous welcome pack on top.
"Jon and Mandy were lovely friendly hosts."
The lodge was wonderful - very comfy and cosy- bed was amazingly comfy!! The hot tub was brilliant- such a lovely way to unwind at the end of a day of walking! The lodge is in an ideal location- you can easily get to the Broads, coastline and into Norwich. The supplies Jon and Mandy left as a welcome were such a lovely touch-up thank you for the wine in particular(!) Would definitely recommend this place, it was a lovely stay.
"Lovely annexe, great facilities and friendly hosts."
Would highly recommend to anyone
"The Lodge was the perfect place for a few days away."
It was clean, comfortable and the welcome pack was lovely!
"The lodge is a wonderful property has everything you need for a good stay owners Jon and Mandy are very welcoming."
The welcome pack is a nice touch and the property is ideal for the coast, broads or the city highly recommend this property although we did not make use of it there is a hot tub for the use if you wish will definitely return.
"The Annex is a perfect place to stay when you want a spotlessly clean comfortable base to explore Norfolk."
Our hosts Jon and Mandy were extremely friendly and helpful and by the end of the week felt like friends. They even provided a welcome pack which included wine to get our holiday off to a good start. The Annex has many luxurious touches, we especially enjoyed the conservatory, with its lovely garden views. I didn't get chance to use the hot tub but it too looked very inviting.
"Mandy and Jon made us feel very welcome, the lodge is a new-build next to the old farm house, and is well located just north of Norwich."
The Lodge is very well built, all the required facilities, and the sun lounge faces on to an extensive garden and the hot pool. Lots and lots to do in the area, Norwich is a very interesting and historic city with two cathedrals, only Coventry can boast the same. The beautiful coast is only 20 minutes away. The property and its owners are highly recommended.
"All in all it was a lovely weeks stay in a very comfortable cottage."
Every detail had been thought of, ropes and slippers to wear and food in the fridge. I felt a little awkward using the hot tub as it was right next to the owners house but we were made to feel very welcome and felt at ease using it. Such a welcome treat when we had been out cycling all day. A very central cottage to all attractions. Highly recommend a stay here. Loved it!!
"The owners (Jon and Mandy) were very friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them."
The accommodation was perfect for us as a couple and the addition of the sun room made it feel quite roomy. The lodge is perfectly situated for touring both the broads and the north and east coastline, we really enjoyed our stay.
Marvelous, friendly, helpful hosts. Mabel, Eric & Jack (the 3 cats!), wildlife & hot tub great added bonuses! Quiet. Best holiday for a long time. Definately recommended.
"This cottage was probably the best we've ever stayed in, spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and ideally situated for exploring the Norfolk Broads and further afield."
The owners, Jon and Mandy, are lovely, friendly and hospitable without being "in your face", nothing was too much trouble for them and there was a great welcome pack, they even gave me a birthday card! Add to that the unlimited use of the hot tub and it really couldn't be a better place to stay. We would be happy to recommend to anyone and will definitely return.
"Jon and Mandy were the perfect hosts and the Annex was the ideal holiday home."
Well done to all concerned.
"Great location for visiting Norfolk."
Lovely spot and people. Very pleasant accommodation, despite the horrible weather!
"A cosy little annex, and a lovely welcome pack much appreciated."
In a very well placed location to visit much of Norfolk. The only niggle, which is more of a listing annomoly, is that the bedroom is stated as a king size double bedroom, to which the bed is a normal size double bed. The hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. Would definitely visit again. Many thanks.
"This was a very quiet location that was excellent for our requirements."
Jon met us and gave us a detailed tour. The cottage was comfortable and very well equipped, the hot tub was exceptional. For a romantic get away this is the go to location in East Anglia.

About the location
Wroxham 4 miles; Norwich 9 miles.
The pretty Norfolk Broadland village of Coltishall is known locally as the ‘Gateway to the Broads’, where, on Coltishall Common, you can find an array of moored boats sitting along the banks of the River Bure. The banks of the River Bure are the picturesque setting of Coltishall Staithe, a large grassed area enjoying riverside pubs and restaurants, a village store/Post Office and attractive cottages. In summer, both locals and visitors enjoy relaxing picnics, feeding the ducks and playing ball games, while in winter, the local waterfowl enjoy Coltishall Staithe’s riverside tranquillity. On the outskirts of Coltishall is the summertime pick-up stop of the Bure Valley Railway, a narrow gauge steam and diesel service running between the market town of Aylsham and Wroxham, and walkers can enjoy the riverside footpath from Coltishall Lock. The local area offers a wide choice of places to visit from craft barns and beautiful gardens to National Trust properties and Redwings Horse Sanctuary, while river boat trips can also be enjoyed. With Norfolk’s beautiful and varied coastline within easy reach, this is a lovely location for discovering Norfolk.
Note: Adults only, no infants or children.
