Perfect just perfect , we have stayed in many holiday accommodations over the years but The Cart Lodge has to be by far the best . In respect of repeating what other guests have said about the lodge and it's excellence , I thought I would mention a few different things . We stayed the week over Christmas it was a perfect spot to spend Christmas Day with the romance of the beamed cottage , the huge log burner , the Christmas tree and of course the private hot tub overlooking the pond and the meadow behind . The owner Drew has included many extras to The Cart Lodge that are not expected but were very much appreciated and make it that little Bit more special, for example the food hamper that greeted us including presecco , the fairy lights that surround the decking area and hot tub , the huge and very soft towels included , the large and very comfortable beds and abundance of luxury pillows , under floor heating and tasteful decor.
The cottage is dog friendly which is part of the reason we were attracted to the cottage in the first place ( we try not to go anywhere without our Cockerpoo Tilly ) however if you are not bringing a dog with you to stay please do not be put off , due to
the cottage having oak flooring or tiles throughout it makes the cottage extremely hygienic and clean , the cottage was spotless throughout, throws are included on the sofas to protect them from muddy paws .
The location is idilic with Thetford Forest , Rendalsham forest a short drive away and Kneetlesham Heath a couple of miles away by car .
At the moment the cottage is the best kept secret as it has only been a holiday home since July but when word gets about this cottage will be a sell out all year round , thanks Drew and Tilly for a truly wonderful Christmas stay , look forward to seeing you again soon x
Beautiful property. A great base for sight seeing. The owner is on hand if you need him but is very discreet. We would love to go back in summer as the experience would be even better as the decking and balcony is very inviting. There is a great garden centre nearby with a bakery to die for. Absolutely recommend.
We stayed for a couple of nights and loved both the quality of the place and the amazing patio decking overlooking a pond teeming with wildlife - very relaxing.
The owner was very helpful.

The Cart Lodge is everything and more you would want from a break and the pictures do not do the beauty, tranquility and perfection of this place justice. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome by the owner and provided with a lovely welcome hamper that certainly got us in the holiday spirit. Hot tub was amazing as were the views over the water. Facilities in the lodge were great, beds super comfortable and all luxuries thought of to make any break here an enjoyable one, thanks Drew, we will be back!!!
We had a two week holiday accommodation stunning views breathtaking. Hot tub a great hit with the boys. We felt very welcome and comfortable. Drew and Tilly were excellent hosts. Thanks for the holiday Drew.
