Whether its stargazing from the hot tub, enjoying the waterside views with a spot of angling or simply strolling the local paths and tracks, this lodge offers the perfect spot for a break for two in Norfolk.

A fabulous holiday home designed to make the most of its waterside position situated in South Norfolk, from which guests are able to explore the many local attractions.

The Suffolk and Norfolk coasts attract visitors to the charming resorts such as Southwold, Sheringham and Cromer and can be reached during a day trip while inland attractions include National Trust and English Heritage properties, Banham Zoo and the historic cities of Norwich and Bury St Edmunds.

Arriving at the lodge guests will follow the shingle path around the far end of the lake before entering this studio-style home from the raised and private decking. The lounge area features a comfortable sofa on which to catch up with any TV shows and enjoy the views out over the lake. Moving through to the kitchen/diner, guests are able to rustle up all manners of cuisine with electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer, and enjoy the resulting meals either on the table in the kitchen with a window out to the lake so you can enjoy the views whilst eating. The sleeping area houses the king-size bed with bedside tables and lamps to ensure a good night’s rest. Finally, completing the property is the, shower room with shower and WC, to re-invigorate and refresh.

Stepping out onto the raised decking area, guests can enjoy the height of relaxation with a dip into the fantastic sunken hot tub. The swing chair provides the perfect spot for a morning coffee or time with a good novel, or perhaps enjoy a spot of fishing in the stocked lake where thoughts will no doubt lead to catching a big one. The lake itself has been stocked with a variety of coarse fish including roach, tench, and carp should guests wish to spend some time angling (please note that fishing is not permitted from 15th March - 15th June each year).

This holiday cottage was very cosy and well looked after. The lake is beautiful as well as the surrounding scenery. A perfect holiday for 2.

Lovely location next to attractive lake. Although there are other a few other properties around the lake, most of them were hidden from view behind the islands so felt quite secluded. The fishing only produced very small Carp (lots of them) but the weather had cooled substantially so in better conditions I think the larger fish would feed. Only dowRead morenside, although not a huge problem, was that we were within earshot of the race track at Snetterton but I think the North East wind exaggerated this. Hide

Excellent accommodation in a peaceful setting and with perfect weather. Everything that is needed for a holiday. Owners could not have been more helpful. Fishing excellent although failed to tempt any of the bigger fish. Despite coronavirus restrictions on pubs and other eating establishments, all coped well. would highly recommend.

All in all we had a great stay at 'The Lily Pad'. The setting is ideal for a peaceful time and for nature lovers it's ideal. We were lucky enough to see Kingfishers daily. The fishing was 'hectic' with carp, roach and rudd plentiful although on the small side. Facilities were good and the hot tub a real bonus. The only negative was that even with tRead morehe use of a large mobile fan it was incredibly hot inside the property and almost impossible to sleep. Two days reached 34c/ 33c so maybe that's why Hide

Absolutely perfect for 2 of us for a weekend break. Lovely and quiet but within easy walking distance of the village which has shops and pubs. The Lily pad was beautifully set up and had everything we wanted. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the place was lovely and clean. We would definitely recommend it.
