The Norfolk Broads are all within a few miles of the property, and are a haven for those who enjoy boating, fishing and the beauty of the waterways. The east coast offers lovely sandy beaches, including the lively resort of Great Yarmouth (10 miles), and the quieter beaches at Winterton and Sea Palling. Shops, pubs and restaurants 2 ½ miles. As we want our guests to have an extra special break we will offer to take delivery of your online grocery shopping and put it away prior to your arrival so that you can arrive to the cupboards and fridge stocked with your favourite things. A meal out? - need to pre-book a restaurant or taxi? As bookings usually start on Fridays guests could find that the best restaurants are booked up for the peak weekend evenings ... we can recommend places suitable for your party and give you their details prior to arrival so that you can make guaranteed reservations. …. Or maybe its a special occasion and you want be indulgent and have a dinner party arranged at Garden Lodge? - We will put you in touch with a highly reputable experienced catering company to do just that. Hen weekend or just a girly getaway? - What about a qualified beauty therapist coming over to pamper you with anything from a manicure to an aromatherapy massage - a full brochure is available. More

About the neighbourhood
Nearby to good restaurants and pubs, a short distance to Wroxham 'the heart of the broads' where you can hire a boat, explore the rivers an maybe moor at one of the many riverside pubs for lunch? Fantastic beaches either at the lively resort of Great Yarmouth with many attractions and amusements for the children or to one of the quiet sandy beaches - superb for a relaxing time away from a hectic everyday life.
Getting around
Regular bus and train services to Norwich and Great Yarmouth can be accessed from Acle (approx 2.5 miles from Garden Lodge)
