I love spring - Lodge Farm sprouts leafy goodness all over the place. Bulbs are popping up, snowdrops, daffodils, tulips and crocuses. All 150 trees spring to life. The smell of vanilla wafts in the air from the Liberia (I made that up, don't know the name). Geese, swans, ducks and coots spring to life, mate and nest. Cormorants and Moor hens dive in to the depths of the lake for a cocktail of fish - its like Mary Poppins country here.
As well as the incredible nature scene here at Lodge Farm, we can almost guarantee a hotter than hot summer. Roll on another heat wave, bring me the sun shine glistening over the lake and those warm evenings sitting outside with the barbie going for something yummy.
Lodge Farm has three lovely barns Lakeview (2 double bedrooms) over looking (you can guess)!, the Courtyard (2 bedrooms one double one twin) with its walled Victorian wall and high beams and The Dairy (one bed) overlooking the lakes, the woods and the playground area.
Look out for our short weekend or mid-week breaks on offer last minute or book yourself in to a Friday to Friday week - time to chill and time to shop in Norwich, in the top 10 shopping destinations in the country with Norwich Lanes a highlight of cobbled streets down Elm Hill, to Cathedral to Medieval street along with over 200 independent businesses. Dine in over 500 cafes, bars and restaurants - indulge in gastronomy, eat your self around the world in the market (voted the best in the UK) or cocktail on one of our roof gardens over looking our medieval historical city, with the second tallest spire on the cathedral in Britain.
Go wild with the kids in one of the many them days like the Dinosaur park, Pleasurewxod Hills, Pettittes adventure park or slot your way through Yarmouth so good they called it Great (it has its rough charm and a gorgeously long sandy beach).
Norfolk has something for everyone and Lodge Farm is the perfect place to explore it all - 10 minutes from the city, 30 mins from a beach and in a countryside location - just outside the Village of Bawburgh with a gastro award wining pub.
