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.

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.
