    Description

    Nestled in the tranquil Weybourne Forest Lodges Park, Bracken Lodge is a true escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The lodges have been built to offer seclusion and private space, so it really does feel as though you have found a wonderful hideaway, right in the heart of a beautiful forest.

    The lodge is set within 100 acres of pine forests, which is surrounded by a further 100 acres of National Trust forest, which leads on to Sheringham Park, where you will find a variety of plants, flowers and wildlife. There are plenty of footpaths leading through the forest with distances ranging from one to five miles, taking you through the varying habitats of the park. Along with the ability to access the North Norfolk coastal path leading to Cromer or Hunstanton, within 40 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive.

    Just a gentle walk away is the North Norfolk Railway Poppy Line, which runs between Holt and Sheringham. This famous steam railway is often used in films and television and has been described as one of the most beautiful rail journeys in the British Isles.

    Just over a mile away (c25 mins walk) is the pretty coastal village of Weybourne with its shingle beach. Here you will find the local Deli where you can get fresh bread, milk, cheeses, meats, postcards and even some small essentials like wine and plasters!. There is a local pub that has a fantastic selection of gins(if that is your tipple of choice) and home-made food. The pub does get busy in season so best to book.

    A little closer (c15mins walk) is the shop, with a host of self-catering friendly products and pub/restaurant/pizza place that are open to the general public as part of the Kelling Heath Holiday park. Here there are also leisure facilities that are available on a pay as you go basis. There is an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, gym, table tennis, games room etc and plentiful walks around the Heath. There is also a "Dark Sky" site, where the night sky can be seen with little air polution.

    Weybourne fishing resort is situated on the Norfolk coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. To the east lies the bustling coastal market towns of Sheringham and Cromer, and to the west there is a string of picturesque villages leading to Wells-next-the-Sea with its picturesque quay. Add in numerous National Trust sites, stately homes, bird watching opportunities galore and great cycling routes and you will see why this part of the coastline remains so popular with guests who return again and again.

    Beach 1 miles. Shops, pubs and restaurants within 1 mile.

    As Bracken is an A framed wooden Lodge it does have sloping ceilings throughout and we have had to be a little creative with space and storage.

    We are pet friendly to a maximum of 2 dogs.

    The Front Deck has a table and 4 chairs and a love seat you can sit on the veranda and watch the birds, squirrels and the occasional muncjack dear pass by. There is a storage box for boots and wellies etc, along with a couple of dog bowls if you are bringing your 4 legged friends. We do advise always wearing shoes on the deck.

    There is also a quirky coat rack, designed to hang wet coats to drip dry more effectively (or that's what we've been told).

    Ground Floor:

    Open plan living space.

    Living area: With 40" Smart/Freeview TV (Netflix available), DVD player and DVDs, games and books along with maps and information on the area to help you enjoy your stay. Wi Fi/Broadband/Soundbar/Radio etc and seating for 4-5.

    Dining area. Open plan adjacent to the kitchen with large country pine table, chairs and church bench that easily sits 5. There is a small freezer to the right of the bench told you we had to be creative.

    Kitchen area: With newly installed electric oven and electric hob, microwave and fridge. Carousel cupboards for pots, pans, plates etc and a glass cupboard (another space thing!) along with cupboard space for foods/storage etc. Plastic glasses have been provided for use on the deck for your safety.

    Bedroom 1: Ground floor adjacent to Shower room with single bed (2.6 inches). Please note if you have difficulty with stairs, we can make this room into a King room on request, although space will be a little limited.

    Bathroom/Shower Room: Newly renovated with walk-in shower, toilet, vanity unit and heating system.

    Rear Hall With coat rail, boot storage and access to the rear of the property, with steps down to a seating area in the forest.

    At the rear there is a washing line and another love seat to enjoy the morning sun ( through the trees of course!). There is a hose pipe attached to a cold water feed for rinsing off muddy/sandy boots and doggies if need be.

    Open-tread stairs leading to...

    First Floor:

    Bedroom 2: With twin beds (open to stairs) under the eaves views out to the forest and towards the sea. A privacy curtain has been added to pull when needed. There are 2 sets of drawers and a small hanging space area too. Please note that the walls are sloped from floor to ceiling.

    Bedroom 3: With Kingsize bed and views into the trees and forest at Weybourne. With 3 sets of drawers and a small hanging space, again we have the sloped ceilings from floor to ceiling.

    We have a newly installed (2020) Smart radiator electrical central heating system that is very responsive although in summer months the upstairs does get quite warm. There is a fan upstairs if needed.

    The property is entirely electric, Wi-Fi, bed linen, and towels and T-Towels included ( not beach towels). A Travel cot and highchair are available on request. There is a heated clothes dryer or an outdoor washing line for those "wet" days.

    There should be a small amount of cleaning products too i.e. washing up liquid, hand soap,individual shower gels and anti-bacterial wipes etc

    A welcome pack is provided to kick start your holiday, with doggie treats for our four legged guests too.

    Outdoor seating for 4-6 on front veranda and paved area to the rear in the 100-acre grounds (shared with other properties and public).

    The access to the property is shared with next door although there is private parking for 2 cars to the right hand side of Bracken.

    No smoking throughout the Lodge.

    Sheringham and Weybourne beaches are very popular and the town of Sheringham is a lovely seaside town and well worth a visit.

    Directions

    The A148 is the main road that runs from Kings Lynn to Cromer and goes through Fakenham and Holt.
    To reach Bracken Lodge travelling on the A148 from Holt or Cromer.

    From Holt, after around 1.5/2 miles you will turn left into Sandy Lane just before the village of Bodham. You will see a brown tourism sign - 'Kelling Heath' pointing left before the junction.
    From Cromer travel through Bodham, on leaving the village take the first right into Sandy Lane. You will see the brown tourism sign - 'Kelling Heath' pointing right before the junction.
    Continue down Sandy Lane. The entrance to Weybourne Forest Lodges is on the right just before a sharp left hand bend. There is a black and white chevron sign on the bend just by the entrance.
