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?


A wonderful stay with friendly, helpful and welcoming hosts. The cottage is fully equipped for a home from home stay, with a good pub and lovely walks on the doorstep. We would definitely recommend this property.

Mrs A,

Old Cart Lodge was very home from home with so many little touches that made the place - ideal. The hosts were charming and location just right to be away from it all but close enough to explore.

Mr C,

Fabulous week in this very attractive lodge, beautifully equipped! We've booked to go again next year!

Mrs W,

A delightful place to stay with comprehensive facilities with a very helpful and friendly property owner.

Mr P,

The Cart Lodge felt loved, it was stylish, homely and comfortable. We enjoyed the local walks and lunch at the local pubs, and just relaxed, we would highly recommend it.

Mrs B,

A lovely week away in a stunning property. Spotlessly clean, well-equipped and beautifully presented. Hot tub, lemon drizzle and a bottle or 2 of wine - what more could you want for a holiday! Thank you for being so hospitable. We hope to return one day.
