South Lodge East dates back to 1847 and was designed by well-known architect, S. S. Teulon. The lodge has been restored and once again stands as sentinel, along with South Lodge West (ref:1940), to Holkham Hall on the Holkham Estate. This stylishly designed couple’s retreat offers a fabulous contrasting mix of traditional interiors with contemporary pops of colour. There’s a cosy living room for romantic evenings, with a wood burning stove to keep toes and paws warm after winter walks. The enclosed garden is the ideal spot for alfresco dining in the warmer months after long walks on the beach or cycling around the lake, with bike hire available on the Estate. This is a unique chance to stay on the Holkham Estate, so make it your love nest on the coast and explore the plentiful attractions nearby. Shop/Pub: 3 miles

Mostly a nice lodge apart from the things mentioned above. It's not one we will visit again. We much prefer Palmers Lodge and Cuckoo Lodge and will book those again. South Lodge just too busy with traffic for our liking.

Lodge was extremely clean, warm and welcoming. The goodies were very thoughtful, thank you. even our dog had a treat. Lovely local walks on the estate, great beaches near by. Plenty of places to eat covering all tastes and pockets. If you want complete isolation South Lodge may not be for you as there are a few tractors and delivery vans passing thRead morerough the gate during the day. Although for us this was in no way a problem. Great easy parking and access to the lodge from major roads. Lovely little enclosed garden with furniture. Hide
