This holiday property is set within the grounds of Yaxham House, the owner’s home, the Georgian Grade II listed former rectory that served the parish of Yaxham. The Old Rectory Lodge is a wing of the former rectory. The property has been furnished in a contemporary style and decorated to create a light and airy feel that complements the character of the former rectory, and is perfect for a quiet romantic getaway. It enjoys an attractive and secluded setting approached by a private road and drive adjacent to the parish church of St Peters. Offering a warm welcome at any time of the year, it is a perfect base for exploring all that the area has to offer.

The Mid Norfolk Railway (MNR) is ½ mile away with trips available from Yaxham to Wymondham Abbey and Dereham. Dereham, 2 miles, offers an indoor swimming pool, cinema, bowling, shops, supermarkets and a market on Tuesdays and Fridays. The property lies within an hour’s drive of the coast, with excellent sandy beaches and RSPB nature and bird reserves. The Norfolk Broads, the Brecks (and its stone curlews), Peddars Way, Norfolk Coastal Path and many National Trust properties are also easily accessible.

The village is at the centre of a network of footpaths and there is a children’s play area and recreation ground close to the church. From the nearby bus stop, regular bus services go to Dereham and Norwich. Restaurant/takeaway and café ½ mile, pub 1½ mile.

Can be booked with The Old Rectory Coach House (ref CTX) to accommodate up to 7 guests.

    We had a relaxing time and The Rectory Lodge is situated in an ideal location. It was all we hoped for . The welcome pack, supplied by Sue, Ian and Luna, was VERY welcome. Mimi liked hers too :) The garden was lovely to come back to, at the end of a day out, to sit in, listen to the fountain and relax.

    What a lovely place to stay! We were made very welcome, the Lodge has everything we could have needed, there was even a bottle of wine in the fridge. It is ideally situated to enable one to explore Norfolk. We will be back!
