The TripAdvisor description of Woodpecker Lodge could be better. Nowhere in the description does it use the words "amazing" or "fantastic", and the pictures definitely undersell it. Never before have we stayed anywhere with such high standards of repair and cleanliness, and in the visitors' book I remarked how Woodpecker Lodge provides everything that any reasonable person can require. We went with two mobility-challenged companions, and this house was simply perfect for all of us. The facilities provided met our demanding requirements perfectly. The two of us enjoyed morning and evening walks on the many lanes, footpaths and trails around the area, and in the main part of the day we took our companions out and about to enjoy the many delights that Norfolk has to offer. There are lots of things in the Broads (including wheelchair-friendly boardwalks at Neatishead and Ranworth), on the coast and in the Norfolk countryside that we could all enjoy, and we all agreed that a week was not long enough. Our hosts were wonderful - there in case we needed them (which we didn't), but never intrusive. The only problem we can foresee is that this deservedly popular holiday home is so exceptional that it is likely to be booked up whenever we wish to return. If you can find vacant dates, book them now. You won't regret it.
Had a lovely stay at this lodge. Disabled facilities exactly how they are described. Would highly recommend. This place has been very well looked after. Would hope to visit again.
Beautiful lodge in the countryside but only a few minutes of the main road. Within easy reach of many different local attractions. The lodge was immaculately clean and spacious with everything we needed, hosts were friendly. Would love to return. P.s my mum says the homemade bread was the best she has ever eaten! Thanks again
We booked Woodpecker Lodge for a break over Easter and it was everything we could have wanted. The property is exceptionally clean and really well maintained, lovely fresh bedlinen and towels and very comfy beds, lots of wardrobe space too. The kitchen had everything we needed and the living area was spacious and comfortable. The garden was very tranquil and we enjoyed watching the birds come and go to the feeders in the morning. Martin was really welcoming and had left us a gorgeous basket of goodies and a bottle of wine which was very much appreciated. The property was also nice and warm. We had a really relaxing stay and as well as exploring some neighbouring villages and beaches we also took the dog on some beautiful local walks in the woods and by the canal. We would highly recommend Woodpecker Lodge and wouldnt hesitate to stay there again.
Our stay at Woodpecker Lodge was perfect. The Lodge is amazing, spotlessly clean, furnished to a first class standard and incredibly comfortable. It is very spacious, light and airy and the photos actually do not do it justice! All the bedrooms were a good size and the beds were really comfortable. We had everything we could possibly need. The wifi was excellent, much to our daughter's satisfaction! She also absolutely loved the garden. We did not want to leave and fully intend to return as soon as possible. Martin was an attentive friendly host without being intrusive and the lovely welcome basket including delicious fresh bread, wine and other necessities was gratefully received and a lovely touch after a long journey. We would highly recommend Woodpecker Lodge. Many thanks to Martin and his family.
Our stay at Woodpecker Lodge over the Xmas holiday was great , The downstairs bathroom was a boon for us as we have mobillity problems so the walk-in shower was a great help . We got to Cromer on Boxing day which was nice to get a walk along the pier. All the rooms are spacious and airy warm and cozy ,Would recomend for a holiday any time .
