Little Lodge 2 Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
This cosy bungalow is located within the owner's grounds at the edge of the Bylaugh Park Estate. As one of two holiday cottages on the site, this is a well equipped home from home providing spacious and bright accommodation, as well as a raised patio with furniture - ideal for relaxing after a day out. There is also shared access to a wonderful lawned garden, ideal for ball games and sunbathing. There are several fishing lakes within a few minutes' walk, as well as access to the River Wensum and various local amenities, making this an incredibly well placed property within a lovely region.

The tiny hamlet of Bylaugh, noted for its Saxon round-towered church, is situated along the River Wensum between the villages of Swanton Morley and Bawdeswell. Both of these larger villages boast a shop and pubs that serve excellent food. Swanton Morley also has a butchers and delicatessen as well as a village bakery. Close by is the large market town of Dereham which provides a number of shops and supermarkets, a sports centre, cinema, church, museums, and the Mid Norfolk Heritage Railway. There is also a traditional weekly market held on Tuesdays and Fridays in the square. The city of Norwich is close by and is packed with quality bars and restaurants in addition to its impressive cathedral and castle. The surrounding countryside offers many great opportunities for walking, fishing and cycling and is within reasonable driving distance of Sandringham, the Norfolk Showground and the beaches at Cromer and Hunstanton.

Picturesque rolling Fens, unspoilt beaches, and pretty waterways – East Anglia is a dream holiday destination. Norfolk offers beaches, saltmarshes and quaint villages whilst equally as charming are the coast and countryside of Suffolk.

A beautiful cottage you could not ask or better. A wonderful welcome as we arrived. We did not have to ask for anything, it was all there with replacements in the utility room.
Mrs Cobb
June 2016
The cottage was perfect and exactly as described and in the photos. The setting is perfect, overlooking the peaceful garden. The cottage was spotlessly clean and lacked absolutely nothing, it was perfect for two adults. The cottage is perfectly situated for visiting all areas of Norfolk, with excellent road and public transport links. We will definitely return to see more of this beautiful county and wouldn't stay anywhere else.
Mr Bleasby
July 2015
We arrived wondering what the place would be like, what a wonderful surprise we got. The owner could not have been nicer or more welcoming. The cottage was a credit to the family. It was the best holiday we have had. The area where the cottage is is beautiful.
Mr Purton

Mrs Moseley
April 2014
We have stayed at this property several times over the last few years and have always been very impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage. The owners are always very welcoming and ready to help with any queries. The location is fantastic, rural and quiet, so great for cycling and walking, yet not too far off the beaten track for shops and pubs.
Mrs Hulse
August 2014
We had a lovely time, it was nice and peaceful; a great location. We will definitely return.
Mrs Sharpe
June 2014
The owners are exceptional, they went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for our arrival. The kitchen, though small has a full size electric oven and gas hob, microwave and a spacious larder fridge. The adjoining utility room has a freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, iron, ironing board and more. The shower room is very spacious with sparkling sanitary ware and ample perfectly folded towels. The sitting room is very comfortable with patio doors that look out onto the wildlife of the garden. What is particularly pleasing is the peacefulness. This was our fourth visit, we keep coming back.
Mrs Groves
January 2014
The owners were very friendly and could not do enough for us, very helpful with local information.

We cannot speak highly enough about this cottage, the owners were the most personable and helpful we have ever encountered. We will be returning very often. The best cottage yet.
Mrs Willis
August 2013
Nice cottage in a convenient location, very central for touring the area. The inside of the property was very clean and well maintained. The lack of light pollution enabled us to view the shooting stars, a bonus when you live in a city where you are lucky to see any stars at all.
Mr Mcphail
June 2013
A place we'll definitely be returning to as it was a good base to explore the beautiful region. The cottage was excellent and well maintained. The owners made us feel welcome and were happy to help with directions to places of interest locally, give general advice and loaned tools to fix my bike! The shared utility was also a bonus. We quickly felt at home but the week went far too quickly. Thank you.
Mr Bott

Mrs Summers

We enjoyed the quietness and peaceful surroundings. The bathroom was huge, modern and better than we imagined. The selection of games and DVD's to watch were fantastic too. We felt very welcome and had our privacy respected.
Mr Alexander
March 2011
From the moment of our arrival we were made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Our privacy was respected. The location was the perfect place to unwind from city life with just the views and sounds of nature. The overall appearance truly reflected the hard work and endless effort put into the little lodges by the owners.
Mr Sutcliffe
August 2011
My wife and I could not ask for a more friendly welcome. In all the 6 years we have been going to cottages, this was far the best for peace and quiet, and for the wild life. We had breakfast while watching the deer going past the front door. What can I say about our hosts? They were brilliant - 5 stars every time.
Mr Cooper
April 2011
We liked the cottage and enjoyed the area. The cottage makes an excellent base for touring all of Norfolk.
Mrs Lawton
June 2011
The property was lovely and clean, which is reassuring with a young child. Also the owners were very helpful, but also ensured we were left to enjoy our holiday. We will recommend this cottage to friends and family. This is the first time we have used Sykes and we found the customer service excellent and the prices competitive.
Mr Howling
May 2016
The Lodge was spotlessly clean and fresh, all the rooms were beautifully decorated and of more than adequate size.
Mr Durrell
November 2010
An ideal location for those seeking peace and quiet. Well-placed for sightseeing in Norfolk. Very hospitable hosts - never had so much food provided for us on arrival. The property was more spacious than we expected.
Mrs Bradford
May 2011
Pleasantly surprised to find the cottage interior was larger than expected. The owners were very welcoming and could not do enough for us. The owners had kindly provided tea, coffee, sugar, milk and some cheese and biscuits for our arrival. Overall we highly recommend the cottage both as a comfortable base and as an ideal location for touring Norfolk.
Mrs Boakes
October 2010
The excellent condition of the property. The friendliness and helpfulness of the owners. Our holiday was super.
Mrs Ricketts
September 2010
Our hosts made us very welcome and were friendly without being overpowering. They included a welcome pack with some items that were particularly well thought out and useful. They were very accommodating even providing fresh towels whenever we wanted them and the use of freezer packs for our picnics. The use of a washing machine and tumble dryer was also very useful during our stay. The property is central to most of the tourist hotspots in North Norfolk and I would have no hesitation in recommending the property and, more importantly, the hosts. We had a wonderful stay.
Mr Whitaker
August 2010
The peace and quiet of our locality. The owners were very friendly and polite. We were central to most places of interest in Norfolk.

We couldn't fault the cottage in any way. It was always a pleasure to return there after a day out. The owners were extremely kind and helpful. We were even treated to a punnet of freshly gathered cherries from the garden! The outlook onto the fields and garden was absolutely lovely.
Mrs Sharpe
August 2009
An exceptional property with very helpful owners. A lovely part of the country. Also, the property is just under an hour away from the seaside.

We loved our week in this lovely little cottage in a wonderful peaceful setting and will most definitely return. The cottage was spotlessly clean with good quality furnishings and equipment. The owners Jackie and Kev were very welcoming and went out of their way to make our stay perfect. There is a lovely seating area outside overlooking their beautiful peaceful garden. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed relaxing after our days out. There is a utility room shared by the two holiday lets and we were encouraged to help ourselves to fresh towels and bedding. This was a first in all our years of renting holiday cottages! Great selection of DVD's, books and games. It was our first visit to Norfolk and the location was perfect for exploring the county.
August 2014
The lodge was beautiful so clean warm and alovely relaxing place to stay owners so friendly and helpful ,a great base for exploring norfolk would recommend to everyone wish we had stayed for weeks
December 2012
We were greeted in a friendly yet non-invasive way and had a nice selection of groceries left for our use. The cottage looked new and pristine and we felt at home and comfortable straight away with many books and DVD for our use if required. We had a very peaceful stay and enjoyed the shared garden and the local wildlife, especially seeing deer out of the window while having breakfast. The cottage is in an ideal position for fishing and walking. I would certainly recommend this to all. My thanks to the caring owners too.
January 2012
Wonderful hosts...Lovely accommadation.A perfect holiday.
October 2012
This is a fantastic holiday cottage; its photographs do not do it justice! From outside and from the details shown it looks quite tiny - it is beautiful; very spacious with everything you could ask for and, if it wasn't there we only had to ask - not that we needed to. The location was quiet yet easily accessible with good road links to the many local towns, villages and attractions. The area is crammed with things to do, so much so that we ran out of time in one week! The owners were very helpful and knowledgable about their area without being intrusive in any way. We could not find any fault and would love to go back again soon.
John Bott
December 2013
An excellent country cottage set in a secluded spot with all the main amenities for a weeks holiday. The very friendly and helpful owners give you a welcome and answer any questions regarding the area and the facilities. The Cottage is well equipped and finished to a high standard; with wooden floors throughout. As a Fisherman, the Owners provided me with all the information I needed to fish the nearby River Wensum; the free sections and the meadows I could roam. The rural setting is perfect to see old Churches and Mills in lovely village situations. This is a place to unwind and relax if you are a town dweller or feel at home if you are, like me, a rural dweller. A first class holiday situation for any weather.
Mr and Mrs Summers
September 2011
The owners were most welcoming with many unexpected extras. Nothing was too much trouble for them,they were most accomodating. The cottage had everything, and more, that you would need for your stay. The location was perfect for touring the area, whether you wanted a trip to the north or east coast or to the many places of interest inland. There were also many lovely walks around the lanes/roads nearby to unwind in the evenings after a day sightseeing. The cottage is perfect for two who like to be able to see open fields whilst having breakfast. We could not think of anything negative to say about our stay, only that it was not long enough, but that is the fault of us not the cottage and its owners.
September 2011
could not have a better holiday in all the 6 years we have stayed in cottages from cornwall devon this was the best and the owners 5 star
December 2009
Our stay here in August was our 2nd stay at this wondeful cottage.We were so impressed the 1st time we came back. The cottage was exceptionally clean,the furnishings lovely. We had the full use of a utility room with washer ,dryer,clothes maiden,freezer. The situation of the Little Lodge was very pleasant with lots of wildlife on the doorstep. A good centre for visiting the Norfolk coast and not far from the Park and Ride for the city of Norwich,we even ventured into Suffolk visiting Bressingham Gardens. Best of all were the owners who did everything to make our stay enjoyable. The welcome pack was extensive.Replacement towels and bed linen were readily available. There was lots of DVDs to watch in the evenings. We would highly recommend this cottage. Mr and Mrs N Sharpe
January 2011
Both myself and my husband were extremely pleased with the accomodation. It was impeccably clean, well laid out in beautiful surroundings. Nothing was too much for the owners and they even laid on some provisions. We had full use of the washer/dryer & freezer at no extra cost. I cannot fault this property at all. I have slight walking difficulties but found this cottage to be ideal.
