    The lodge is a good base to explore, the local amenities are ok but the lodge is situated about 30 miles from everywhere we live in Norfolk, Wroxham, wells, burnham market, fakenham, etc The lodge itself is comfortable and adequate, the decor could do with some up dating but we found it to be welcoming, warm and cosy. The price also reflects this as we found it to be a bargain for the time of year we stayed and for how many of us went. The owner does live very close to the lodge however she is friendly, helpful and usually busy in the grounds. The grounds themselves are beautiful and we enjoyed watching the wildlife. The use of the pool is definitely an added bonus. Only things we would change: hot water a little too hot for a stay with a toddler (we let the owner know on departure and she said she will have it checked, which I'm sure she will) and not having owls in cages (bread in captivity as I understand but still not a nice sight, cages could have been a bit bigger so each could fly around rather than flap on a perch) We will definitely book again

    Everything was really good apart from the cleanliness in the kitchen which could have benefitted from all being thoroughly washed before we arrived, everything felt sticky and we cleaned everything we would be using first. The lounge furniture was very used and would benefit from being replaced. The swimming pool and facilities were really good and we enjoyed all of them along with the large garden and surrounding areas. Jean was very accommodating with the arrangements of the pool access and we asked her to look at two things whilst we were there and this was done the same day. The fridge did not work and would need to be replaced as soon as we left which she said would need to be done.
