This historic lodge is set within Thetford Forest, a great place for walking, cycling and even birdwatching.
If you are looking for a truly unique holiday in a property with bags of character and history, then look no further as you have found just that at Falconer’s Lodge. Dating back to 1810, and accessed by a rough track, this was formally the house of the falconer for the Didlington Estate and was visited by King George VI. Better yet, this detached lodge is situated in a magical setting within the heart of the Thetford Forest, some 47,000 acres. With one and a half acres itself, which often plays host to deer in the mornings, the grounds lead into the forest for great walks, cycle routes and nature trails. You won’t need to travel far to enjoy the wildlife which lies just footsteps away, but if you do, you will find lots of birdwatching sites. Falconer’s Lodge boasts a wood burner to snuggle by after a day out, and a freestanding bath to soak away the day’s efforts.
Venture further afield, and you will find High Lodge and Go Ape close by. Take the time to visit the picturesque town of Bury St Edmunds with its famous Abbey and great places to eat, drink and shop. Norwich is also worth seeing, with its splendid Norman castle and numerous museums and attractions, as is Ely with its cathedral named ’the Ship of the Fens’.
For a change of pace, you can also be at the stunning north Norfolk coastline in under 50 minutes. Here, you will find lots of pretty coastal villages and towns with a selection of wide sandy and shingle beaches, quays and marshes all waiting to be explored. What better than to return to the heart of the forest and magical Falconer’s Lodge after a day’s sightseeing? Pure bliss. Shop, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.
