Description

Stunning period house, ideal for larger groups, 100ft water frontage and private mooring, St Olaves and Somerleyton boat ride away.

Enjoying over 100ft of water frontage, with a private mooring and slipway, Gunton Lodge is one of the premier detached period houses built along Oulton Broad, in the National Broads National Park. A large sunny south-facing garden leads to the water’s edge, accessing a wealth of family watersports activity on the enclosed waters of the broad. A rowing boat can be made available for guests’ use by prior arrangement. Alternatively, simply relax and enjoy stunning views across the broad and surrounding countryside from the house, the lawn or the summer house by the water’s edge. This luxury property has been thoughtfully decorated throughout and all of your holiday needs considered. The large open plan living area is surrounded by large windows, flooding the room with natural light. The master bedroom has French doors leading onto a large decked balcony with stair access up to the turret room – a fabulous spot for enjoying the often spectacular sunsets! Oulton Broad is a haven for wildlife and water sports such as fishing (seasonal, licensed), sailing (RYA training centre), windsurfing and rowing. Numerous footpaths rich with wildlife and scenic cycle rides can be accessed from the house. A short boat ride across or short walk around the broad leads to the charming village of Oulton Broad with its waterside cafes, shops, restaurants, bars and park with a well-equipped children’s play area and tennis courts. Or go upriver in a day boat and discover charming waterside pubs and restaurants and pretty broads villages, such as Beccles, St Olaves and Somerleyton. The popular Blue Flag beaches of Lowestoft and Gorleston are close by, and further afield, picturesque drives lead into the Suffolk and Norfolk countryside with its many excellent gastro pubs, and to the Suffolk Heritage Coast including Southwold, Walberswick and Aldeburgh. Nearby stately home and gardens at Somerleyton also make an enjoyable day out. Shops 500 yards, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Gunton Lodge - all our family came for my husband's 70th birthday. We had plenty of room, the kitchen was well equipped & the garden was glorious, if only it had been a bit warmer! Would definitely stay there again.

    Lovely week in a very comfortable & well equipped house. The weather was good & so we could take full advantage of the boats & the access to the broad. A real bonus! Great fun was had by all (age range 6 - 70) This would be a great holiday place at any time of year! Heating was efficient & hot water plentiful & showers good. Loved the ice maker in the freezer. Our only observation was that the double beds in the 2 huge main bedrooms could easily be converted to 6' beds = more in keeping with the comfort of all the rest of the house.

    Beautiful home, stunning gardens and views. We went out on the broad several times with the help of the kayaks and rowing boat available, we rowed to the local pub one day which was nice. The kitchen was very well equipped and comfortable beds etc. Thank you.

    An excellent property to spend a holiday in. The location on the Broad is superb and it would have been very easy to never stray from the house. The use of the kayaks and rowing boat were an extra bonus
