Luxury self-catering holiday cottages
in the heart of the beautiful Norfolk countryside.
For 1 to 18 guests plus infants.
Self catering accommodation seldom comes as well appointed as the luxury holiday cottages
at White Lodge Farm.
Each of our cottages - we have three and can offer accommodation for 1 to 18 guests (plus infants) -
combines the comfort you'd expect in a modern hotel with
the many personal touches and attention to detail which go to make them holiday accommodation which
guests so often refer to in our visitors' books as a "home from home".
Converted by craftsmen and fitted and equipped to a high standard throughout, each of the holiday cottages
at White Lodge Farm has the English Tourism Council's five star self catering accommodation rating.
The central location makes these Norfolk country cottages an ideal refuge from which to enjoy
all that the beautiful county of Norfolk has to offer,
or simply a place to relax overlooking our paddocks and the countryside beyond, enjoying the "big skies" for which "Nelson's county"
is richly famous.
The exceptionally well equipped offer a suitable venue for a relaxing retreat, family holidays,
celebration or get-together for a
larger party seeking group accommodation.
Stay for three days or longer - we offer short breaks (midweek breaks from Monday to Friday and
weekend breaks from Friday to Monday) throughout the year except Christmas and New Year.
We are also usually
able to offer Monday to Monday bookings. The timing of Christmas breaks and New Year breaks depend on when Christmas and New Year fall
(multi-cottage bookings are not available for Christmas or New Year).
If you're looking for somewhere for a gathering with a group of friends or family,
perhaps to celebrate a special birthday or
an anniversary, or simply a get-together or re-union, you'll find the self catering cottages at White Lodge Farm offer well-appointed
accommodation with bathrooms in abundance, dining tables and comfy seating for the whole party, and plenty of kitchenware and tableware.
A number of local caterers are happy to cook a special meal for guests at White Lodge Farm.
If your group simply wants to relax in your cottage, that's fine, but we've a page of ideas of
things for larger groups to do.
visitors' books confirm that families agree that the
holiday cottages at White Lodge Farm are
indeed child friendly cottages, citing the finishes,
the children's towels, the fact that there are no precious antiques or light carpets, the fenced gardens and
the abundance of places to visit with the young in body (or at heart) in mind. Guests even comment on the attention to detail,
such as the blackout linings to the bedroom curtains. High chairs, cots and stair gates are amongst the child friendly
offerings, all available without charge, of course.
For some ideas of things to do with youngsters take a look at the
Child's Play page.
For those seeking a relaxing break, each of the holiday cottages has its own
lawned and fenced garden with an outdoor
seating area and garden furniture for resting or al fresco dining.
The holiday cottages are spacious, light and airy, furnished and equipped
with the more discerning visitor in mind - furnishings are comfortable, practical and
Underfloor heating, modern insulation, log burners and a wide range of other modern
amenities all contribute to the feeling of homeliness in each of the
well-equipped - each of the holiday cottages has a dishwasher
(the Barn has two), washing machine, tumble dryer, food processor, and double oven
(the Barn has a range cooker) and there's plenty of crockery, cutlery and glassware.
When it comes to entertainment each cottage has books in abundance, games, TV (two in the Barn), a CD and DVD player
and clock radios.
The holiday cottages are approached over our private driveway from a country lane.
There's ample parking, all off-road, and yet the cottages are only a 15 minute walk from the
pretty Georgian village of Hingham. Hingham, which has a strong
is thriving, with a pub serving good food, a bistro and a coffee shop, as well as a butcher, baker,
chemists, newsagent, Post Office and two grocery stores, both of them with an off-licence.
The surrounding countryside will appeal to all ages. It is ideal
cycling in quiet lanes,
golf (those keen on golf will be spoilt for choice with 12 Norfolk golf courses within as many miles!),
sightseeing or just lazing around.
The cottages look out over miles of surrounding countryside and the wide
vistas offer spectacular views of sunsets and star-filled skies. For
those wishing to explore there is a wealth of activities, antiquities
and other attractions to be found in Norfolk and North Suffolk.
Thetford Forest, the historic city of
Norwich, with its outstanding
architecture and shopping facilities, the market towns of
Dereham, Watton and Wymondham (with its Abbey), the Norfolk Broads the
beautiful beaches of the North Norfolk Coast, and the Peddars and
Marriott's Way are all accessible from White Lodge Farm.
Dairy Cottage and
each sleep up to six guests plus infants and
the Barn sleeps up to 12 guests plus infants.

special occasion. To assist
guests who are less mobile all cottages have level or ramped
