The Forrest lodge is at the end of an unmade road, once a farm & now the land is given over to glamping, a few sheep, and wildlife. Whether you like eating out, takeaways, or cooking in our fully equipt home. Dedicated to love, family, relaxing with the girls, connecting with friends, get away & relax in the hot tub in the private garden or walk-in acres of woodland. Wood-fired Pizza oven, Woodburners, pet-friendly, a generous outside covered space, with gas hotplate, seating, fire-pit, & patio

Stedet
The lodge was all new for April 2017, is part of a complex of barns, it was built in 1780 and converted 30 years ago into a home, but then it fell into disrepair and in 2016 we carried out a complete new refit, new windows, completely insulated and new cladding, new floors, heating system, new bathroom, replaced the kitchen, re wired and re-plastered, and then in 2017 we have landscaped, new fencing, decking, large patio, lighting and car park, we believe it is even better than Stiltz our other holiday home, a very private space and secluded garden and patio! We can accommodate six guests, one normal king bedroom, the front room has a double sofa bed, and then the smoke haus which is a pod in the garden has a double bed, but the pod has steps and you need to use the bathroom in the lodge, via the path across the garden, the pod is not for all but a totally unique space designed by London Architects for “green sky Thinking week” , no right angles, and a sky light to watch the stars, ideal for youngsters!
We believe in providing an environment for you to focus on the present and allowing enjoyment in relaxation are the keys to a well earned break, some might seek 'mindfulness’ and there’s no better place to practice a little ‘you’ time than in the lodge garden. What is good for your spirit and wellbeing, is switching off from technology and curling up with a good book and we have some to choose from and in the fresh air, chill, the kids can do what they like doing at home in the lodge, we have WIFI but we are in the country side so do expect more than about 10 mg on a good day if you have brought them? I suspect they will spend a lot of time in the hot tub ( please seek acceptable usage guidance) next to the lawn, or in the Smokehaus at the bottom of the garden! Our garden sofa offers that comfort in a very special sun trap, and a couple of side tables for refreshments and you’ll be set for an afternoon of pure relaxation.
The Danish concept of ‘hygge’ - essentially making moments in life special, cosy and memorable - is moving outdoors. It’s very satisfying to huddle around the firepit, toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate, encapsulating the very essence of hygge, or undercover in the Smokehaus with the woodburner!Adding to the sensory experience is our olive tree, lavender and other herbs, creating the fragrant scent in the evening. Use the seating at night and the lodge comes with plenty of blankets ready to hand round as the temperature falls. The patio doors, blur the boundary between indoors and outdoors to create large entertaining and living spaces. For a seamless look, with garden furniture as elegant as indoor furniture we provide comfortable seating for many enjoyable hours around the table with friends and family. Do your food prep in the kitchen and use the kitchen window as a hatch for delivery to the outdoor cooking area, the gas BBQ saves all the messing around with charcoal, or maybe the family or just the two of you want breakfast outside, with fresh ground coffee from our machine, we even provide the beans and where better to enjoy that 'barista' cappuccino than the bistro set so you can soak up the early morning sun?

Our outdoor lighting, making it easier than ever to create a stunning outdoor ambiance after the sun goes down, the Somkehaus has some very interesting lighting options.
We are a good distance from the main road, via an unmade track, your own car park has Environmentally friendly solar-powered lights and mains motion sensor lighting, the car parking space is covered by CCTV for security, but the CCTV does not cover the hottub and private Garden, patio, and decking areas. The lodge has uplighter and downlighter's on the outside washing the weatherboard barn with soft light, the seating areas near the hot tub is lit with decking lights and lighting posts so you can enjoy and eat in comfort, the pathway is lit for safety and general illumination. Lighting is controlled inside and out to add drama and cast beautiful shadows onto surrounding surfaces and will create an intimate atmosphere combined with the vibrant blue LED's in the hot tub, this is a very private space.

We have had some fantastic reviews for our other property Stiltz, but it is not suitable for everyone, so for those who may have kids, families and for elderly guests we set up "the Lodge" it is so you can bring friends or family, so Stiltz is still the best couples retreat in the county, but The lodge is more flexible and less like a tree house and more like a normal barn conversion, so suitable for every one, so the lodge is child friendly and sleeps up to four, or or you have the Smokehaus to yourself, for chilling outside away from the telly! The kitchen has fantastic uninterrupted views of the fields outside the barns. Our hot tub is next to a decked eating area, well lit for night time dinning, but surrounded by fencing to make sure you stay is private and if you want to relax in our state of the art Hottub with its own sound system connected by Bluetooth to your smart phone, you will not be overlooked as you stare at the stars in the night sky! This is also perfect for couples wanting a special break away. We have done all we can to make it as comfortable as possible, the luxury inside, alongside the pleasure of watching the sunset with a glass of bubbly at any time of the year from the warmth of the hot tub is something special that a photo cannot capture! If you want to get away from the bustle of everyday life, curling up in front of a roaring fire with that special someone. We are miles away from the nearest village, and access is via an unmade track, and remote means near enough to the shops in the car, but some mobile providers also have poor coverage in our area too, it is rural with a capital R! The lodge is located with access to 600 acres of heathland and woods, from your backdoor, close to the leisure area called Top Farm. Also, the camping area can be used for Weddings in the summer sometimes, and the area can become busier in the School Summer Holiday periods, however, there is no access to the external spaces around the lodge or Hottub other than by you , it is totally private, and all the facilities, including the hot tub and Smokehaus are for the exclusive of our guests during their stay. However, it’s charm can be felt in the Autumn and Winter months, and it feels like you are the only people for miles around!
From the bedroom you can see the views of the garden, Smokehaus and patio when you wake, relax in the luxury beech bed, on a mattress which has over a 1000 individual pocket springs with deep, luxury fillings, this is a hand tufted mattress to give optimum support for a peaceful night’s sleep. We provide the highest quality bed linen for all guests, with luxury soft pillows and duvet, watch TV and enjoy breakfast in bed! Many of our guests have said that, when you combine the super bed with a couple of hours in the hot tub, it has made for the best night’s sleep they’ve had in years! (We also provide, free of charge, lavender, raspberry and other scented oils for use in the hot tub).
We made the lodge for relaxing in, and it is ideal for guests who want to stay somewhere a bit special. Our happiest clients seem to be those who want to get away from it all, but not to scrimp on comfort. The bathroom has a glass surround shower with ceramic tile walls, full size bath, the sink is also tiled with large and small mirror, a one-piece toilet, Exhaust fan with humidity control, Large ceramic floor tiles laid through-out, spot lighting, and waterproof shower lighting and heated towel bars. The bathroom has been remodel and is finished in crisp white, complete with soft deep luxury towels provided for our guests, and for couples only your own robes provided for the spa. The bathroom is clad in hand cut timber painted with soft eggshell. The lounge, with a deep four-seater, brown , leather sofabed, to curl up on for a cosy night in front of the black cottage wood burner, with the option of watching the Panasonic 40" Smart TV, with Freeview TV. But if you like your music the lodge is equip with a audio and video sound bar, ideal for a movie by the fire may just like being at the cinema! stream any music with any compatible device (tablet, phone etc) or just great with the DVD player and selection of DVD's, the sound will make for a fantastic film night! It is unlikely you will feel either too cold or, too hot, as the building is super insulated, space heating and water heating is provided by the the state of the art air source heat pump, and keeps the place very comfortable in all weathers. We provide wood and kindling for reasonable use of the woodburner and as it is a must for our winter guests!
You can exit the lounge stepping onto your personal patio areas via sets of double patio doors. To the sun deck or breakfast decked area, all areas can be again fully lit in the evenings., with table and seating for meals, the garden is very, very private, a real sun trap and not over looked, the Smokehaus is another space, to avoid weather, but to do as you wish, no rules!
From the dining table in the kitchen area, and you will the best views of 100 acres of fields.
The kitchen is well equipped with all your home comforts, seasoning (Tuscan, Italian , French, chilli and others) plus your own top of the range coffee machine (Instructions to be found in the manual), the lodge has new appliances, Dishwasher, microwave, fridge, toaster, blender, TV and kettle are also provided. Instant coffee and a selection of twelve types of tea bags from herbal to Earl Grey are complementary . Also, all necessities, i.e. dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid and cleaning products. The cooking area has a ceramic hob, extractor fan and two large separate grill/oven (Instructions in the manual), also commentary cooking oils, balsamic vinegar, sauces, herbs and spices. We even provide a full set of condiments, ketchup, mustard, chilli, tabasco and much more!
At the end of the kitchen you can exit and the path takes you to the block paved car park area via the courtyard. The sun deck next to the large lawn also has sun loungers, surrounded by decking lights, you can step straight into the spa.
The Hottub is a new Evolution 7 and features an advanced shell design combining elegant style & functionality. All seats are ergonomically designed to ensure the ultimate in comfort, it features a Balboa colour touch screen keypad similar to a modern smart phone. Intuitive and simple to use, the keypad allows you to control the spa's functions effortlessly; functionality can also be streamed to your smart device using the specifically designed app.. The 43 hydrotherapy jets deliver a complex & powerful massage supported by the high pressure, 2-speed pump. All jets can be adjusted at both the jet head and via the air diverter; the diverter regulates the intensity of the massage through subtle adjustments in air content within the jet stream. Each seat within the spa has its own jet configuration offering a diverse level of therapy throughout. It also features a quality bluetooth music system with two waterproof speakers and internal subwoofer. Clear, crisp sound can now be streamed from your portable device, with volume and track adjustment easily controlled via the spa's waterproof touch screen. EcoPur filtration eliminates metals and toxins naturally found in water, resulting in a clearer, fresher spa. Filtration is further enhanced by the inclusion of the ozone system, killing stubborn bacteria and reducing the need for additional chemicals. This proves we don't cut corners, this spa comes in at the cost of a family car! Our guests can enjoy their evening with subtle light from blue up lighters , and the garden has a southern aspect, with rattan sofa and large table and arm chairs with table, also with a 3.5m Anthracite parasol, The patio area and decking step up into the lawn, which is surrounded by six foot high fencing, this means seating , tubbing and dinning is even lower creating a sunken sun trap with absolute privacy and is ideal if you wish to fire up the three burner gas BBQ (Full set of tools provided for BBQing), we also have a fire pit and more!
If you hanker for straying a bit further in the outdoors, then out of the garden gate and you are into miles of woodland walks (map on the wall of the 500 acres in total without crossing a road) or, venture onto the adjacent heathland on bikes, which we can organise hire for your stay if you would like? Even if you clock up the miles on your walk, you will be lucky to come across anyone else, but you will find miles more beautiful scenery without a house in sight.
We except guests with well-behaved pets, but we require information on your pet before we accept the booking.
We want your stay to meet our high standards, and so, we like to change the water in the hot tub at least every guest or every week, but this takes more than 12 hours to empty, refill and get back to the correct temperature, therefore to allow this to happen, we do appreciate a prompt departure to allow us to be able to do this for our next guests. However, if we do not have guests arriving the following afternoon we are happy to be more flexible on departure times, so please just ask. Also, weekends are our most popular time for bookings, so we do discount week nights and longer stays!
With one king size bedroom for two, the lodge also caters for two more on the double sofa bed in the front room and we can also provide for a fold away spare bed and bedding on request.
Please browse our pictures, although our guests (and us) don't believe they do the lodge justice it deserves!! Why not come see for yourselves!!
We do ask for a minimum stay of two nights, this is because cleaning, inside and out thoroughly can take four to five hours. Also, the emptying, filling and regular maintenance of the hot tub has to be completed and returning it to operating temperature can take many hours. We always clean and flush the hot tub every week, and it is only for your exclusive use only during your stay.

This is an ideallic and remote spot loved by all! You might want help with Bike hire, we can do that so it is all sorted, hats, lights and locks for your arrival, look at above guest access section it has full details, plus details on Tesco or Sainsbury delivery for when or before they arrive, just ask and we can agree the slot and order all your goodies to maximise your time in the Hottub or exploring the woods!
Guests have commented that the pictures we post do not do Stiltz justice and we love that!
We have gone to extra lengths on the detail, the mattress was one of the most expensive available and framed by a beech wood, but it is not just about how much we spend on the stuff inside and out., Our cleaner spends 3-4 hours after every guest departure making sure it is spotless, we want you stay to be perfect and for us it has to be very clean, and that goes for the Hottub, we spend many hours after every guest, cleaning pipes, changing / cleaning filters, changing water and cleaning the tub and did I say fresh water, it is a major exercise as the hot tub takes an hour to empty, over two to fill, and it can take eight hours or more to reach the ideal temperature, so if we don't have time we can do a partial change, and a deep clean, as we look to to do a full change every week, not the two months as recommended by the manufacturer and as others do, on top and as a matter of course we balance the water condition twice daily, for us this has to be clean as, you would not want to share someone else's bath! We had our first guest propose in the Hottub in Stiltz December 15, there are some occasions best remembered under a carpet of stars in a dark sky in water set to 103 degrees with a 4,500 bubbles per second, we set the seen as best we can, we do the detail so you can forget it! But we have had guests whom have spent till 5am in the Hottub and slept till 3pm, we do not do your normal week, if you live in Essex, Devon, London or Hertfordshire, you will have an experience designed to be far away from the routine and some time away from the buzz with someone special!
Our guests can enjoy their stay, relaxing in the hot tub on the outdoor decked area, with commanding views over the peaceful North Norfolk countryside surrounding The Lodge, or BBQ on the decked area to the rear and lounge on the sofa!!
We decorate in side and out at Christmas. If you are planning a special break then let us know what we can do to make you mr say extra special, that way your holiday can start the second you arrive and if it is chilly you may want to find a roaring waiting for you to toast your toes, just let us know!
If you are unsure read the reviews, or stay and be miles away from the daily graft and write your own story! We like our guests to enjoy their stay, some regular Airbnb guests and new to us have said Stiltz our other property is the best place they have ever stayed, we expect the lodge to be the same for families and couples!
