    Beautifully decorated cartlodge in lovely location for exploring the Norfolk Broads, beautiful North Norfolk and Norwich. Every last detail is quality with lovely bedding, comfortable lounge and a stunning bath set in the bedroom - so luxurious after a day in the sunshine. A small enclosed garden with outdoor table, seats and sun loungers Martin and Karen lovely, helpful and friendly hosts. Would definitely recommend.

    Cart Lodge perfectly fitted our requirements of dog-friendly, super-king bed and a North Broads location. Karen and Martin, the owners, were exceptionally friendly and helpful; pointing out local areas suitable for dog-walking and coastal beaches including some with free parking - always a plus - as well as the nearest shops and amenities with personal recommendations for eateries. The cottage proved a great base for exploring NE Norfolk and we will certainly be back as a week was not enough!

    Absolutely stunning cottage and we really loved our weeks stay here. The welcome treats for us and our dog were a lovely surprise too. We just noticed a few things which could have done with a quick dust, hob cover, under the sofa (only noticed as had to pick something up) and there were some big cobwebs in the living room ceiling really high up! It's such a fab little gem it would be a shame for these things to let it down.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. We are really pleased that you liked the cottage and had an enjoyable stay. With regards to the issues mentioned, the hob cover is black glass, and the farmers were cutting the field next door and as windows are opened to freshen everything, sometimes the black glass gets dusty. Between cleaning at about 1pm and take over at 4pm it also causes cobwebs to sometimes just appear, even though we have an extendable pole to try to get to all dust and cobwebs. The ceilings are vaulted and sometimes we have to wait for a man with a ladder to get up there. Regarding having dust under the sofa, the sofas are moved and the floor vacuumed under them, so I’m not sure how they were dusty. However we do hope to welcome you back in the future.

    We loved our stay at the Cartlodge, the cottage had every thing we needed and the welcome tray was exceptional ! The cottage was clean and spacious with all the mod cons you could wish for, little touches like providing barbecue coals, dishwasher tablets etc were really helpful.
