South Lodge West dates back to 1847 and was designed by well-known architect, S. S. Teulon. After some years of disrepair, the lodge has been restored and once again stands as sentinel, along with South Lodge East (ref:2026), to Holkham Hall on the Holkham Estate. The perfect retreat for a wander down to the beach during the Summer months or to cosy up inside by the wood burner during the cooler climes. There’s a petite kitchen area with microwave, kettle and toaster otherwise encouraging you to enjoy the delicious and plentiful eateries of Wells, The Burnhams and beyond. Relaxing and switching off from the everyday is difficult to resist. If you’re feeling energetic, explore the far-reaching parkland that will be on your doorstep; ideal for long walks or cycling around the lake whilst the deer herd look on, with bike hire available on the Estate.

The Holkham Estate is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and home to Holkham Hall, which sits proudly at the centre of the Estate with far-reaching views over the 25,000-acres of historic parkland and woodland. One of the region’s finest and most recognisable Palladian country houses and the ancestral home of the Coke family for more than 400 years. The grounds are ideal for cycling and feature many themed walks and trails, with bike hire available close to the courtyard, restaurant and gift shop. You can even take to the water on the lake during the warmer months of the year. Just outside the walls of Holkham Park is Lady Anne’s Drive which leads down to the wide-sweeping sands and big skies of the dog friendly beach, bordered by pine woods. You will also find yourself spoilt for choice when looking to eat out. The Victoria Inn in the Holkham village serves fantastic local, seasonal cuisine from dawn to dusk, whilst lunch can also be enjoyed at the Hall’s Courtyard Cafe or the Beach Cafe charming further afield in Wells-next-the-Sea. Wells-next-the-Sea is a lively coastal town with its iconic beach huts and picturesque harbour where you can enjoy fresh shell fish or the catch of the day. Other delights nearby are Burnham Market and its sister villages, Brancaster, Cley-next-the-Sea and the town of Holt to name just a few.

Thanks to all those involved in preparing for our little holiday. We felt safe and comfortable. You could have provided slightly better weather but for end of October it was warm with only one really wet day! Congratulations to your various professional who have made a super job of conversion of the lodge - and to those design artists who fitted it out. Well done and thanks again!Dr Arthur Draycott - 23rd October 2020
