The Cart Lodge is situated on the grounds of a Grade 2 Listed thatched barn, set in a rural location down a country lane, just off the A149, surrounded by farmland, close to the Norfolk Broads.
Ideal for families with young and older children, as well as friends meeting up for a holiday or break together, with an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, the property is bright, spacious and comfortable to just spend time relaxing and socialising together, as well as being a perfect base to discover the local and surrounding area.
Being here you have a sense of being away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but are within very easy reach of the North Norfolk coast, the Norfolk Broads and the city of Norwich, as well as all amenities in the local market towns of North Walsham, Aylsham, Wroxham and Stalham.

What The Cart Lodge DOES have is a fantastic location in Norfolk where having no street lights allow you to gaze up at the millions of stars on a clear night, countryside walks right on the doorstep, being able to hear the sounds of the local wildlife, and if you're lucky see them within the grounds of the property and overhead. The Cart Lodge allows you to spend special family time together in the cottage playing a game, talking, watching a film on a rainy day, or having a fun day out cruising, or cycling around the Broads, or crabbing on the pier at Cromer.
It might take you a couple of days to adjust from time away from your desk, your phone, your tablet, BUT the time spent together creating MEMORIES, having fun and adventure will be worth it!

The Norfolk Broads are close by, 5 minutes from the North Walsham-Dilham Canal, to Wroxham, the heart of the Broads, being within a 15 minute drive. The Broads National Park offers its picturesque scenery and waterways to visitors of all ages, being an idyllic place for those who wish to while away the hours bird or wildlife watching, cruising on a boat, or paddling in a canoe, as well as hosting many events throughout the year.
The Norfolk coastline is within 6 miles from the cottages. Closest is Happisburgh, where the only independently operated and oldest working light on the Norfolk coast is situated at Happisburgh Lighthouse. It is open for visits during April-September on specific days, but the view from the top is worth the 96 steps!
Many of our beaches are worth a visit, stunning Holkham for its far stretching unspolit sands, and nature reserves, Winterton for it sandy beach and dunes, Wells, a 'must-see' beach for its beach huts and mile-upon-mile sands and shallow waters when the tide is out. Cromer, a traditional Victorian seaside resort, with a sand and shingle beach popular for swimming and surfing and its pier. Mundesley, with its long sandy beach and colourful beach huts and Overstrand for its quieter appeal.
Sheringham and East/West Runton beaches with their many rock pools when the tide is out, as well as Great Yarmouth if you like fairgrounds and amusements.
The National Trust properties of Blickling Hall and Felbrigg Hall are both within a 20 minute drive, as well as the popular Sheringham Park and Holkham Hall a little further along the North Norfolk coast. There are also many English Heritage Sites within a short drive.
For families, there are many local attractions, such as Bewilderwood where fun and adventure meets magic, in a wonderful woodland setting with the Twiggles and Boggles, along with many other enchanting characters, as well as many animal attractions from Thrigby Hall to a more prehistoric adventure at the Dinosaur Park.
Wroxham Barns is nearby, with its independent shops and crafts, well known restaurant with delicious homemade food and afternoon teas, and Junior Farm and Fun Fair for the children, as well as 18-hole miniature golf course. You could also take a ride on the Bure Valley Steam Railway to the market town of Aylsham, which is well worth a visit.
For a rainy day, there is a local bowling alley, JR’s, as well as the Victory Leisure Centre in the local town of North Walsham, or for waves and a waterslide, Splash in Sheringham is the place to go.
Locally, the village of Worstead is 1.5 miles,with its history of the Worstead Weavers and Spinners, as well as the medieval church St Mary’s. The public house, The Cross Keys at Dilham is 5 minutes away and one we recommend if you don't want to go far for something satisfying to eat.
