*Now with its own hot tub* One of just four stunning contemporary, eco lodges, decorated and designed to a high standard, we think you will find everything you need for a relaxing getaway at Upthorpe Lodges. For when you're eating in, the well-equipped kitchen will keep a creative cook happy, with dining area alongside. It will be no surprise that there's a fridge and a microwave, but there's also a full size freezer for your ice cream and more, plus a conventional oven for your Sunday roast. The stylish furniture has been carefully selected to provide comfort and relaxation, and on sunny days you'll want to roll back the doors and let the outside in. Sun loungers and outdoor dining table allow you to make the most of the daytime sun and the garden area is lit for evening use too.

Sun loungers and outdoor dining table allow you to make the most of the daytime sun and the garden area is lit for evening use too. All four lodges at Upthorpe Lodges include their own luxury hot tub, in their own private gardens. Perfect for relaxation but with plenty of local attractions, this contemporary five-star (applied for) lodge, appears in a country garden setting amidst the Suffolk countryside, at the heart of East Anglia. Close to the villages of Stanton and Walsham-le-Willows our location is ideal for exploring the Norfolk and Suffolk countryside, its villages and market towns. The unspoilt coastline is within an hour's drive, and coastal towns such as Wells, Cromer, Southwold and Aldeburgh make pleasant tours. The historic cities and cultural centres of Cambridge and Norwich are an easy drive away. Oak Lodge is in its own privately enclosed garden. We have three other lodges on this small exclusive setting, and group bookings can be made. Please contact owner for details.More

Great to hear you found everything to your liking. We're lucky that Suffolk is one of the sunniest counties in the UK of course! Hope the rest of your grand tour was everything you wanted it to be.

One of the best served villages locally, Stanton has a village stores, two bakers, an excellent farm shop (with delicatessen), a farmers market, cafe and restaurant (all at Wyken Vineyards), a village pub, a petrol station, hardware shop and post office. The adjoining village of Ixworth has two pubs, both serving food, a library (internet access), a cafe and a village stores, whilst in the other direction, Walsham le Willows boasts Rolfe's the Butcher, 'Suffolks Best Butcher' which also sells groceries, cold meats and cheeses.

Getting around
Use of a car is recommended as we are in Suffolk countryside. However, we are close to a bus route and pick-up from our nearest train station (Thurston) can also be arranged. There are several country walks nearby and we also have cycles to borrow upon request.
