At the time of the Norman Conquests the village of Rockland St Mary was split in ownership with half being under the guidance of the Earl of Norfolk and the other half the Abbot of Langley Abbey.  The two townships were eventually joined to become the attractive Broadland village as we know it today with its own small Broad to the east of the village and a good village pub and shop.  The area is set in an attractive low lying valley with the River Yare running through it, ideal for bird watchers and cyclists, whilst the Wherryman's Way accessed from the village, makes a great walking day out.   A holiday based here offers many attractions; the fine City of Norwich is full of cultural attractions, cinema complexes, great shopping and a wide choice of cafes restaurants and pubs.  The RSPB Strumpshaw Fen and the Strumpshaw Hall Steam Museum are just across the River Yare and a day trip to The Broads to explore the inlets and waterways, is easily done from here.  The traditional seaside resort of Great Yarmouth is directly to the east as are the less populated beaches of Caister-on-Sea and Winterton-on-Sea - the east coast beaches are large, sandy and there is space for the whole family to enjoy a day out.  A little further north discover Horsey with its famous wind pump now looked after by the National Trust and from here take a walk to the beach where you will discover the resident seal colony - so who's watching who?


Beautiful spacious property to relax in and the hot tub was a real bonus.

Mrs B,

Like a luxurious home away from home; The Old Cart Lodge had everything we needed, and the owners were really generous and accommodating. Great location for exploring the nearby bird reserves on the Broads, as well as being close though to the city for amenities. Really enjoyed our stay here, it was very relaxing.

Mrs N,

Well equipped, and very comfortable. The owners were very polite and kept in touch and were on hand to answer any questions. The Old Cart Lodge had everything we needed for a very relaxing weekend. The hot tub was an added and very welcome addition. Would definitely recommend.

Miss S,

We had an absolutely lovely stay at The Old Cart Lodge. Communication from Norfolk Cottages and the owner were fantastic throughout, including when rebooking due to covid restrictions. It was really lovely to arrive and discover a Christmas tree and decorations to make our trip away feel extra special. Would definitely stay again.

Miss L,

*** Very very happy with our stay ***
