    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

    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 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.

  • "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.

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.

    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.

  • "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

  • "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.

About the location

COLTISHALL

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.
