Close to where the Norfolk and Suffolk borders meet, and set in tranquil woodland on the banks of the River Thet, Thorpe Forest Lodges are luxurious, stylish and ecologically designed. The wonderful Norfolk Broads are within an hour's drive, and Bury St Edmunds, Norwich and Cambridge are all easily accessible.

As well as the idyllic setting which you can explore on beautiful walks and nature trails, you can also go horse riding, hire a mountain bike and try out the many other outdoor pursuits available. There's an activity centre, a shop and coffee lounge and a children's play area. Thorpe Forest also has a team of rangers ready and waiting to take you on tours and other activities.

The accommodation here really is superb and you can choose to stay within the forest itself, or in one of the lovely open glades. Golden Oak Hideaway is really special - designed for couples, it has panoramic views of the forest, a sunken bath for two, underfloor heating and a log burning stove. There is a gorgeous decking area with a hammock and hot tub.

Thetford Forest consists of nearly 19,000 hectares of pines, heathland and broadleaf trees and is home to a multitude of native British wildlife. Lynford Arboretum has over 200 tree species, including mature Norwegian Spruce and an extremely ancient oak tree.

Our Top Tip
"You could try paintballing and archery - and take in some popular music acts at the Forest Live Festival, each year in June."

We had a last minute deal in the most basic lodge. So no fire or hot tub. The only thing that I didnt like was that you had to pay £40 if you wanted WiFi. The phone signal was almost non existent so it would have been useful to have had an internet connection. Thants the only reason I didnt give it 10/10

When we booked we asked for the same lodge we had last time, but when we arrived we got a different lodge. I liked this lodge better as it was surrounded by trees more and not so many people walking past close to the lodge, saw a deer by the decking in the morning and saw lots of lovely birds in the trees! The kids next door had a hot tub and the sound sure does carry at night! They calmed down at around 10pm. (We have a child so realise how loud they can be so wasn't an issue to us!) We were extremely lucky that it snowed heavy while we were on holiday so we got to play in it! The dog and our son loved it! Just made our holiday more magical! I love the fact that we can just step out of the lodge and go for a walk in the forest. Also that all the staff are dog friendly so we were allowed to take our dog in the cafe! The staff are friendly and very helpful. We thought our oven wasnt working on the first night as it took 1.5 hours to cook a pizza, staff were straight over to check the oven. The next night the oven worked fine. We had a lunch in the cafe, which was average price, but it was ok. We went to Bury for a few hours one day and found a nice garden centre next to tesco who also accept dogs in their cafe. Its handy tesco being a short 10min drive away. The only fault this time was that under the sofas and beds looked they hadnt been cleaned for a long time as my son found out when he reached underneath to retrieve a toy car! This was on the first night, he came out covered in dust and dirt! You only get a broom and dust pan and brush, no hoover or mop so I couldnt clean under the sofas. The floors in general didnt look as clean as the time before and there were signs of wear and tear on the wooden kitchen work tops. By the time we left despite sweeping the floors were a lot worse as all the grit, wet and mud being brought in! We paid for a later check out so we could walk the dog and pack up, not having to rush so much. Overall we had such a lovely time, we are very sad that we wont be returning next year as our son goes to school and the prices in half term are way out of our price range! Unfortunately the price is way over double of what we paid this time. But we have photos and memories of our lovely holiday!
Steven

Fun Days Out near Thorpe Forest Lodges

Banham Zoo - about 7 Miles
This award winning wildlife attraction has much to offer both families and couples looking for a fun and educational day out.  You can discover a whole wild world of animals with over 1000 different animals from around the world. You will probably want to try and spend the whole day here so you don's miss out on anything.  Highlights include the amazing animals presentation, the birds of prey display and the feeding talks, all of which take place at set times of the day.  This attraction is fantastic value for money and highly recommended.  Their latest event is the Snow Leopard Club Naming Auction and there has recently been a baby giraffe born at the zoo.
Melsop Farm Park - about 10 Miles
We love this attraction in Scoulton, Norfolk with a great collection of animals.  Children and adults alike have the chance to get hands on with the animals in the special handling areas.  On rainy days there is always the indoor play area for the little ones and when it's time for a bite to eat the cafe on the farm is open all day selling drinks and snacks.  Hot food is available over lunch times.
The National Trust Ickworth House, Park & Gardens is a Beautiful 1800 acre country estate with many attractions including a fantastic adventure playground for the children and a range of nature trails which the whole family will enjoy. The site also has a family friendly cycle route a gift shop and a small café
Suffolk Owl Sanctuary - about 19 Miles
This amazing owl sanctuary located in the Stowmarket area of Suffolk should be high on your list of places to visit in the area.  The attraction is also a registered charity and carries out important work in the care & rehabilitation of owls from the region.  The sanctuary also raises awareness of owl conservation throughout the UK.  Between April and the end of September there are two superb flying displays each day so you should try and make your visit coincide with one of these displays if you can.
