South Lodge West dates back to 1847 and was designed by well-known architect, S. S. Teulon. After some years of disrepair, the lodge has been restored and once again stands as sentinel, along with South Lodge East (ref:2026), to Holkham Hall on the Holkham Estate. The perfect retreat for a wander down to the beach during the Summer months or to cosy up inside by the wood burner during the cooler climes. There’s a petite kitchen area with microwave, kettle and toaster otherwise encouraging you to enjoy the delicious and plentiful eateries of Wells, The Burnhams and beyond. Relaxing and switching off from the everyday is difficult to resist. If you’re feeling energetic, explore the far-reaching parkland that will be on your doorstep; ideal for long walks or cycling around the lake whilst the deer herd look on, with bike hire available on the Estate. Shop/Pub: 5 miles

The Holkham Estate is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and home to Holkham Hall, which sits proudly at the centre of the Estate with far-reaching views over the 25,000-acres of historic parkland and woodland. One of the region’s finest and most recognisable Palladian country houses and the ancestral home of the Coke family for more than 400 years. The grounds are ideal for cycling and feature many themed walks and trails, with bike hire available close to the courtyard, restaurant and gift shop. You can even take to the water on the lake during the warmer months of the year. Just outside the walls of Holkham Park is Lady Anne’s Drive which leads down to the wide-sweeping sands and big skies of the dog friendly beach, bordered by pine woods. You will also find yourself spoilt for choice when looking to eat out. The Victoria Inn in the Holkham village serves fantastic local, seasonal cuisine lunch and dinner service, whilst lunch can also be enjoyed at the Hall’s Courtyard Cafe or the Beach Cafe charming further afield in Wells-next-the-Sea. Wells-next-the-Sea is a lively coastal town with its iconic beach huts and picturesque harbour where you can enjoy fresh shellfish or the catch of the day. Other delights nearby are Burnham Market and its sister villages, Brancaster, Cley-next-the-Sea and the town of Holt to name just a few.


Beautiful historic lodge full of character in an absolutely fantastic setting. Accommodation is exactly as described, small but it is all there and very clean and cosy. Everything is close by from shops, pubs, beaches but with this feeling of quiet. The Holkham park and beach have to be seen to be believed. Everywhere is dog friendly.

Mr E,

Lovely property for a couples break. Woodburner a real bonus when returning from a bracing walk around the estate!

Mrs T,

Thank you Norfolk Cottages for a wonderful week. The location of South West Lodge on the Holkham Estate was perfect for us. The small enclosed garden to the side of the property meant we could allow the dogs a toilet break early morning and late evening when we didn't want to walk them. We were able to walk the dogs (on leads) on the estate but preferred the short drive (5-10mins) to Holkham Beach. The car park pass you provided for Lady Anne Drive meant we could park for free a real bonus. Just having a microwave was not a problem! We ate at the Victoria Inn with our dogs (thank you for 10% off), enjoyed Chinese Take Away from the Fortune at Wells and French's Fish and Chips. The Co-op in Wells had a good selection of food and microwave meals too. We arrived late so the goodie bag with a selection of provisions and the Prossecco was appreciated. Lastly a big shout out for large fluffy bath sheets, a comfy bed and pillows, a log burner with logs, kindling and matches provided, which we used the day it poured for hours. Very happy will be booking again.

Previous Customer,

A most relaxing week walking miles of coastline and around the beautiful Holkham estate. Don't miss the walled gardens they are stunning. Perfect Lodge and lovely welcome pack.

Past Customer,

Enjoyable & relaxing stay at the cottage. Our first visit to Norfolk will not be our last. Thank you.

Past Customer,

So nice to stay on the estate - Holkham. Our favourite relaxing place! Lodge has all required facilities for two people and very comfortable. Welcome pack was good but no butter for toasts or scones sadly. Great stay, looking forward to trying out the other lodges. Tour of the pack was fab and informative.

Past Customer,

Our third lodge at Holkham and a really enjoyable week with especially good weather (Palmers Folly for its position amongst the wildlife, South Lodge East for the kitchen and South Lodge West for the bathroom!). Thanks for another lovely bag of goodies, much appreciated and Thank you Marcel for the TV help. Best meal of the week at The Victoria. We hope to be back again.

Mrs Angela H,

What a lovely gem! Just what we needed for our anniversary weekend. The cottage is amazing and the rest of the holkham Estate a real bonus. Thank you very much!
