The property

Mattishall 4 miles.

Tucked away between the villages of Whinburgh and Garvestone is Dragonfly Lodge.

It is set in this tranquil, peaceful location surrounded by lakes and grassland.

This beautiful lodge on the water edge offers an ideal escape for couples, families, friends and solo travellers alike.

Step in to this lodge to the open plan living and kitchen area with beautiful views of the lake and grassland beyond.

There is a twin bedroom and a double bedroom with a shared bathroom facing the back of the property and to the front, with access via the living room, is a wonderful large sun room with rattan furniture, ideal for watching wildlife whatever the time of the year, or just enjoying a good book.

Doors from the sun room lead through to the private decked area stretching out to the water’s edge.

The decking is ideal for alfresco dining, nature watching or just relaxing and sunbathing during the warmer months.

When you can tear yourself away there is plenty to enjoy nearby, wonderful walking from your doorstep and cycling around country lanes, linking beautiful market towns and villages or hop in the car and visit historical, coastal and cultural places.

The Mid Norfolk Railway steam train often runs music and Fish and Chip events which is well worth trying.

On clear nights enjoy excellent stargazing and satellite watching.

With its central position in Norfolk, this attractive lodge lends itself perfectly for exploring the county if you can tear yourself away from its beautiful location.

Tucked away in woodland on an unmade road, you are hard pushed to remember that you have good access to so many places to visit nearby as you take the drive through the trees up to the lakes and arrive at your lakeside lodge.

The nearby market town of Dereham is well worth a visit with its excellent selection of shops, cafes and restaurants.

If you enjoy shopping and culture, don't miss the historical city of Norwich with extensive shopping, events and historical sites to enjoy such as the cathedrals, castles and a vast selection of museums.

Take a drive up to the Norfolk coast and enjoy the vibrant seaside towns and fishing villages.

There are a number of nature reserves dotted around the county and fascinating stately homes, not to mention the Royal residence of Sandringham with its magnificent house and gardens to explore.

This wonderful holiday lodge will leave you wanting to return again and again and is a perfect base for recharging and exploring this wonderful county.
