Please note There are steps in the garden.\n \u003e 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 47000 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. \n\nVenture 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’. \n\nFor 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. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/143/840/1435519.jpg UKC2954

    Book it book it book it amazing place if you want peace quiet and privacy. Superb location and you are left alone to enjoy your stay.



    out of 10

    Lovely location, very interesting property, well equipped. But it was built when stairs were steeper and some doorways lower, so you do need to be reasonably steady on your feet and if over 5'8" ish, then keep your head down.

    Deer and Hares in the garden everyday despite the rain - which didn't dampen the stay at all. The walks in the surrounding woods only increased the wildlife count - Amazing! Loved the peace and quiet in the secluded spot. Would definitely come back

    Our stay at Falconers Lodge over Easter was Perfect. We did not want to go home! It is like taking a step back in time. The property is breath taking and the location within the forest is idyllic. A wonderful retreat for the whole family, dogs included. The location seems remote, but a short 10 minute drive in to Brandon and you have an Aldi, where you can pick up all you need for your stay, and Swaffham is a 20 minute drive away too where there is another Tesco and Waitrose. Once you are set up for your stay you won't want to leave the forest which is great for long walks and nature spotting, Deer and Muntjac's included. Should you want a day trip out Wells-next-the-sea is just an hour away by car. I would not hesitate to book again. In fact I can't wait to return!

    Lovely cottage most beautiful grounds to walk around. We enjoyed our stay the only downsides were we were left with a dirty BBQ and the grill rack was filthy and not useable so we couldn't use the grill. The WiFi was almost non existent but it is to be expected in the middle of the forest! So it wasn't a huge issue. Mobile reception is very patchy also but it will work outside. Beds were very comfortable always got a good night's sleep and kept warm in bed. We also had some very nice meals in the farmhouse style kitchen. We saw some beautiful birds and it was very peaceful place to stay I will definitely return at the price I paid although I would not return at the peak season rates.

    A magical property! Whether you go midsummer or midwinter you can't go wrong. Just pack your 4-legged best friends, plenty of supplies and ample logs and enjoy…. I almost took off a few points for the local amenities section as it is pretty remote, but for me that was the point of booking it so I added them back on!! I came home with some very tired, but very happy spaniels.

    The location and the cottage are beautiful and accurately described on the website. I had a lovely stay. There is a small but well-stocked shop under three miles away which is more than acceptable in my opinion for a place that had attracted me by its remote and secluded feel.

    The best time, we are booking to return in December! It’s like you’re transported back in time. Accommodation amazing, we were lucky to have snow sooo picturesque



    out of 10

    Fabulous and truly unique property set in isolated woodlands, perfect for walks, especially with dogs! Nearest pub we found was the Crown in Mundford is a very pleasant walk away mostly through the woodland paths but the coast at Wells-next the Sea is also and easily ride away also. We would definitely return!



    out of 10

    really unique location, fabulous walks and scenery, the deer visited twice a day and squirrels were around all the time. Great historic house to stay in.



    out of 10

    We took my family away to celebrate their 21st birthday and the property was breathtaking! If you like peace and quiet then its an ideal spot set in a beautiful location. Brandon town centre was around 15 minutes drive away with a Tesco and Aldi as well as various takeaway outlets. The owners had left everything we needed and we plan to book again. I would recommend getting up a little early to see the deer eating fallen apples from the tree in the garden if you stay.

    We had the most wonderful stay at Falconers Lodge. It is a stunning building inside and out. It was clean, comfortable and so peaceful. We enjoyed walking, cycling and running in the forest, then returning to the lodge to relax by the fire. Our dogs are exhausted!

    Really lovely cottage. Warm and homely
