The Lodge in Baconsthorpe
The Lodge is a luxurious and spacious holiday cottage, ideal for a couple, situated in glorious open countryside close to Baconsthorpe, and only 4 miles from the Georgian market town of Holt. Newly converted from an outbuilding in the grounds of the owners' property, the Lodge is completely self-contained and offers a peaceful retreat finished to a very high standard. It has been designed to be ecologically sound, with underfloor heating and hot water provided by an air source heat pump, and power from the most efficient solar panels mounted on a different building and a TESLA Powerwall battery storage system.
After a day out on the coast, visiting one of the many historic houses nearby or browsing in the antique, arts and gift shops of Holt, you can return here for an evening of relaxation on the south facing terrace in summer, or by the woodburning stove with the TV, a DVD, a good book and a bottle of wine.
