Description

Dereham 3.8 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 into 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. Dragonfly Lodge is a wonderful holiday home that will leave you wanting to return to East Anglia year after year.
If you want a night off from cooking, this welcoming and picturesque village offers a small tavern that serves delicious Mexican food. It also has a lovely church. Additionally, a park is nearby where you can play with the kids and take the dogs for a walk. Be sure to visit Yaxham Waters, which has a café and a completely enclosed play area with animals for the kids to feed, in the adjacent village of Yaxham. This village also contains a church, a local farm shop, and a mill with a restaurant. The magnificent St. Nicholas cathedral from the 13th century, Bishop Bonner's Cottage Museum, and a variety of high street stores are just a few of the top local attractions in Dereham. The Mid Norfolk Railway, East Anglia's longest historic railroad with both steam and diesel trains available, is located on the outskirts of Dereham. Visit the Gressenhall Rural Life Museum outside of Dereham to travel back in time and learn about Norfolk's old-fashioned rural lifestyle. a wonderful area of Norfolk to travel to at any time of year.

‘This well equipped lodge is in a perfect setting just feet from the lake. We spent so much time in the wonderful conservatory just watching the birds on the lake, geese and goslings, deer and rabbits, binoculars at the ready! Comfortable bed and all the home comforts we needed. If you want to get away from it all, this could be just the place - it certainly was for us. We loved the fact that the lodge is off the beaten track, no road noise to disturb the peace and quiet. We would thoroughly recommend this lovely hideaway to anyone who enjoys wildlife and that feeling of seclusion. Our only regret was that we booked one week - we should have booked TWO!’

‘You really are blown away by the surroundings and location of this property, deer and birds everywhere and so peaceful, but the property itself was DIRTY, the cooker was unusable as it was so dirty when I did put it on to cook a meal the room filled with smeech, there was fat dripping from the wire shelves totally disgusting..The microwave was just as dirty and we even washed the crockery and utensils before using them..There were cobwebs everywhere and although we had our dog with us its not nice finding balls of dog hair under the settee and in the conservatory which were not from our dog! The bin in the kitchen was filthy and when we had to take the black bag out inside was just rank, and the bins provided outside hadnt been emptied from previous guests..The state of the bathroom on the surface looked clean that is unless you look closely it was so dirty in places ie the radiator, that we cleaned it before putting the towels on it and as for the toilet brush well just yuk..Also be warned there is no wardrobe in the main bedroom just a few hangers behind the door and a shelving unit to put your clothes on?and when we stripped the bed on leaving we had dog hairs on the mattress protector, horrid. I will say that we did have a very lovely week in Norfolk and the setting for this lodge is to die for but the owners really need help in how to clean the place especially when charging the rate they charge, there is just NO excuse for dirt, we did make a complaint when we got home and after a month the owner did offer us a small fee, which quite frankly didnt cover one night of having to eat out, (we couldnt use the cooker so instead of having lovely evening meals out on the decking enjoying the wonderful view we had to go to the local pub which we certainly had not planned on doing).. but it was a take it or leave it attitude or accept money off a re-book for next year! I dont want to go back again weve been to Norfolk twice and seen all there is too see of this lovely county.... I just hope if you book the house it has now been cleaned properly....I would ideally like to show you the photos I took so you could judge for yourselves but am unable to do so.’
