About Woodpecker Lodge - Disabled Friendly Accommodation

The downstairs accommodation comprises a smart open planned kitchen dinner and living area, entrance hall, large double bedroom and a wet room which is disabled friendly. Upstairs there is double bedroom with views over farmland, twin bedroom, spacious landing and bathroom.

The property is situated an equal distance between the market towns of North Walsham and Stalham which both have a good range of essential amenities.

Norfolk has something for all ages and interests, historic buildings, wildlife parks, military museums or working steam railways. An action packed day out for the kids, be it wet or dry, is assured in Norfolk's theme attractions. Fascinating experiences are offered at crafts centres and stately homes.

Visit the numerous villages and Towns around Norfolk and enjoy local crafts and quaint shops. Many towns are host to Farmers Markets and delight in the sumptuous taste of locally produced food and drink. Take a well-earned break and stop off at one of the many rural pubs/restaurants and try out the local ales and home cooked food.

Norfolk offers plenty of fantastic angling opportunities. The Norfolk Broads has over 200 miles of rivers and inland waterways stocked full of species such as pike, perch, chub, rudd, bream, roach and tench.

North Walsham

The Coast is a short drive away as are the Norfolk Broads.

Fishing lakes at Dilham Fishery and The Old Stables Fishing Lake at North Walsham are two of many angling opportunities located nearby.

Weavers Way, a long distance footpath, runs from Cromer to Great Yarmouth and passes through the village of Honing.

The local area contains quiet lanes ideal for cycling and nearby are Bacton Woods with 3 marked trails ranging from 2 to 4 kilometres making an excellent place for all types of orienteering, walking, horse riding and cycling.

East Ruston Old vicarage gardens in the neighbouring village is a feast of formal design, and decorative exuberance.

The busy town of North Walsham and the pretty Broads town of Stalham are a 10 minute journey away, slightly further is Wroxham considered the capital of the Norfolk Broads.

Just outside Wroxham is Wroxham Barns a collection of beautifully restored eighteenth Century barns with displays of traditional and contemporary rural crafts, with workshops. Also with a Junior farm and fun fair for the kids

Norwich satisfies even the most sophisticated shopper so whatever your style, taste or pocket you will have great fun discovering the mix this exciting city has to offer..

“excellent stay over Xmas”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2017
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 .

“Perfect getaway!”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2017
We came away for NYE as a family and it was ideal! Really good location and completely left to enjoy our stay. Ideal for 6 adults together and even the dog had a great time. The property is well equipped apart from an iron and ironing board but it wasn't a huge deal as we were only there for a few days. We would/will recommend to friends and family. We would even love to come back again!

“New Year Break”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2017
We booked this as a family break. The house was immaculate and very comfortable for us all, we were a group of 6 (3 couples) the house had everything you needed except for an iron and ironing board but luckily we had our own. We found the location to be excellent, close to all main attractions, beaches, pubs and restaurants . Would highly recommend this accommodation and would return in the summer to enjoy the beautiful beaches that are close by.

“Excellent location”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016
The house and garden were immaculate and the hosts very welcoming. We would certainly visit again. The dog also enjoyed his stay, and trips to the beaches, shops and stately homes.

“Fabulous stay in Norfolk”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2016
We had a long weekend at Woodpecker Lodge. The Lodge is maintained to a high standard, and equiped with everything you will need - a real home from home. Martin met us (and our small dog) when we arrived with the keys, showed us around the Lodge and made us feel very welcome. The pack of essentials and wine were a lovely touch too ! We'd recommend Woodpecker Lodge for anyone seeking an extremely comfortable stay in the area, in a fantastically quiet and secluded spot in Norfolk. We would definitely have Woodpecker Lodge high up in our list of places to stay when we return to Norfolk in the future

Excellent accommodation” Reviewed 15 Jul 2016

Brilliant stay at this immaculate property. Welcome basket comprising of homemade bread, marmalade, eggs, butter, milk and wine which was very much appreciated. The property was spotless and to a very high standard. All rooms were spacious, the kitchen had all the things you would need. There was also a lovely enclosed garden which you can relax and have a BBQ in. I would definitely recommend a stay there.

“Excellent place to unwind from a busy life” Reviewed 14 Jul 2016

Property lovely, my disabled son loved the peace and quiet. Highly recommend, and will be returning again in the near future.

“Lovely property” Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

Lovely property in a beautiful area. Spacious bedrooms ,wheelchair user friendly, downstairs bathroom and bedroom ideally equipped for a disabled person. Owners next door if you have any questions. Welcome basket very welcoming especially after a long journey. Had a great holiday here.

“Immaculate and peaceful Lodge suitable for disabled person” Reviewed 29 Jun 2016

I took my Mother, who walks with a frame, on holiday to this property. It is exactly as described in the literature - but even smarter than we expected. Access into the property, the ground floor and the decking area are all easy to reach for a disabled person. The downstairs shower room is well fitted out for a disabled person. The Lodge is immaculately clean, with everything you could need in the kitchen. 2 of the bedrooms are enormous, and the third bedroom is a reasonable size. There was a basket with food treats to welcome us and the owners were helpful. The enclosed lawned garden area accessed from the living area is very private and a haven for wildlife - we saw 2 varieties of Woodpeckers and a Muntjac deer in the garden. There is easy access to many tourist attractions within a short drive of the Lodge. I would definitely recommend a stay in this property.

“Lovely holiday home” Reviewed 27 Jun 2016
We stayed at the lodge for a week with two very young children, and had a great time. The property is new and was spotless when we arrived - cleaned to a very high standard. The facilities were great and just what we needed for our holiday. The location was great for the coast and Norwich. Our hosts provided a very welcoming hamper upon arrival with homemade bread, wine, local jam, butter, biscuits, eggs and milk! We shall definitely be returning again in the future - thank you. The only comment I have is there was not a highchair as listed so we brought our own with us.

We visited with children and a disabled grandparent so we could visit family around the North Norfolk area.

The whole place was spotlessly clean throughout and bedding, towels, tea towels and a lovely welcome basket were included. We could not have asked for more.

Lovely property in excellent location for touring out to coast and surrounding area. An added bonus on arrival was the welcome basket with homemade bread and provisions left by owners.

We have just arrived back from a 4 day break at the Woodpecker lodge, it is in a very relaxing and peaceful location and is very well equipped with all the home comforts and is family friendly as we had our 10 month old baby with us. We found the lodge was in a perfect location for visiting the Norfolk coast and other places of interest. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Norfolk and look forward to returning ourselves in the future. Communication with the owner was excellent and answered all of our queries and happy to help. The Coles

We would highly recommend this super, high quality accommodation in the village of Honing. The relaxing modern, clean lodge had the best disabled facilities we have yet tried in Norfolk and the welcome basket including wine and essentials was a kind touch after our long journey. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and Martin was a great source of useful local information. We will certainly be returning.

5 Aug 2015 "Keep on knocking!"

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Woodpecker Lodge. Very spacious bright and airy. This was a very well kept cottage that the owners should be rightly proud to present to visitors. In a great location quiet and restful but within easy travelling of every attraction the area has to offer. I am sure every visitor will enjoy a great holiday.
