Lovely well kept property. Owners were helpful. Left welcome gift for our arrival and had heated the property for us.
Nice break, very peaceful and relaxing. Central location, walks from the door and location also borders Sheringham Park and National Trust walks. Welcoming owners who were flexible about arrival times. Lodge based in Weybourne Forest (although the owners of Weybourne Lodges) are very precious about you not using their on site facilities or pathways). Can walk down to the Poppy Line to board the North Norfolk Railway to Holt and Sheringham. Plenty of other attractions nearby. We had a great time away.
An ideal holiday for us and our dog great woodland walks, a steam railway close enough to take photos from the walks.
The sea is close with a shingle beach and car park.
Holt is has a nice range of shops and the small supermarket sells good local produce.
could fo with a little shop so you able to escentials
We didn't have the use of staff so cannot rate, however, owner was helpful when I called with a problem. The location is perfect for walks, wildlife, and peace and quiet.
Lovely venue Did not have to get in the car to go on walks.
Easy walking in forest and local country parks. Great for wildlife. Weybourne Park also had some horses, pigs, sheep ducks and chickens as pets. Accessible to all our needs for our holiday. Very Dog friendly at the park and also the local towns and in shops, but be aware after 1st May when restrictions on beaches come in. Found Norfolk locals extremely friendly, compared to Surrey.
Lovely setting. It was however very clear the owners of Weybourne Forest Lodges are unhappy about Owls retreat and Bracken Lodge being rented out. They have do not let you have access to the walks in their forest.
A superb 'loghouse' we told our young grandchildren, a magical place to stay. Collected a huge pile of pinecones by the end of the week and loved walking through the 'magic forest' to Sheringham Park. We could hear 'Thomas' the steam engine whistling watched the squirrels playing. They loved it! Will be back.
There are no staff so we could not really rate this. It is a small development of lodges which is nice but many of the reductions for facilities only comes if you stay at Weybourne lodges not Bracken lodge or owls retreat.
Fabulous stay in beautiful surroundings. Will def be back thank you.
We had a lovely week at Owls Retreat. The lodge was immaculate on arrival. Kitchen had every cooking utensil on this planet! Only down side was that we lost TV signal on day two which was very disappointing, and after a long day out we sat indoors with a glass of wine ant no telly! Don't know if satellite dishes are allowed there, but that is what is needed as digital signal is bad. But all in all it was lovely. Perfect for dogs as the veranda is gated so dogs were safe. Not much space for clothes in the down stairs bedroom, no shelves or wardrobe at all. we kept jumpers etc. in our holdalls in the lounge, not a problem. I would recommend this place to anyone, its quiet, perfect location for going out and about. it was warm and very welcoming. would definitely return. All I would say to anyone visiting, is take plenty of DVD's with you! or engage in the age old art of conversation! We stayed in winter and it was great, it would be beautiful in the summer.....eating out on the front or back veranda. Thank you to the owners for a lovely holiday....and for the bottle of bucks fizz and doggie treats that awaited us.
