Why Trudy Crook chose Watton
The first time we stepped through the front door of number 5 Fairway Drive we knew that it was a unique place - one of those houses that calms you straight away: light, airy and spacious - away from hustle and bustle but with easy access to local amenities and centrally located to explore everything that Norfolk has to offer.
What makes this House unique
A place to truly enjoy! Internally custom-designed and equipped well in excess of the normal specification - every room in the lodge is designed for comfort with high quality fixtures, furnishings and facilities. Comments from visitors reinforce our belief that people really appreciate the extra care taken to create a beautiful setting in which you can leave everyday life behind.

Fabulous lodge - great for large groups
We booked the lodge for a family get together over the Easter weekend and had a fantastic time. The accommodation is superb with two separate lounges and kitchen areas. The first floor is an excellent family space with plenty of comfy sofas and chairs to accommodate up to 10 people. All areas are very well equipped, especially the kitchens with washing machines,dishwashers, coffee makers and an abundance of crockery for use. The added Sky TV and free WIFI which was very important for the teenagers and kept them entertained. Trudy was an excellent host and was very helpful with the booking process etc. The view over the golf course was second to none and seeing the deer first thing in the morning was an added bonus. Will definitely be returning.
Thank you for taking the time to review the lodge. I'm very happy that you appreciated how special it is. Thank you also for leaving everywhere as you found it. It would be a pleasure to accommodate you again.. such considerate guests are always welcome!
A very pleasant property.
Facilities very good.A lovely family Xmas.
Great weekend getaway
Gorgeous property with HUGE living spaces and amazing layout. Really well equipped kitchen, the beds were lush - especially the master bedroom - and location was good to get around. The Go Ape in nearby Thetford Forest is a must for adventure seekers, while the golf course is of course next to the place (if that's your thing)
Only thing that slightly ruined it for us was that we had lots of flies everywhere in the property during our stay...not sure where they came from as the property was spotless! Was such a shame as we so enjoyed everything else about the house but hopefully the problem can be resolved for future guests.
Lovely spacious lodge, peaceful with great views
Would recommend the Lodge, great place to stay for exploring Norfolk. The lodge itself is lovely, accommodated 5 adults and 2 little ones easily.
A short relaxing break
We found the lodge to be beautifully furnished and very clean. Trudy was most helpful with allowing us to view the lodge first as I was bringing my elderly parents and my son who uses a wheelchair to get around. This was a very useful exercise and the lodge did prove to be very accessible although the downstairs shower is not suitable for someone who uses a wheelchair. The area was very peaceful and it was most enjoyable watching and chatting with the golfers. All in all a really relaxing and luxurious break - thank you Trudy
The famous sweeping beaches of the North Norfolk coast are within an hours drive of the lodge - the wonderful, pine-fringed sands of Wells-Next-Sea and Holkham, Cromer crabs, the numerous bird-watching marshes, Seal Island, the Norfolk Steam Rail Line and the sheltered dunes of Old Hunstanton are not to be missed!
Car essential to make the most of all that the area offers, but for non-drivers who just need a few days of inactivity, or don't mind using public transport, pick-up from station or airport could be possible by arrangement.
