NORWICH & NORFOLK BROADS, NORFOLK
Making Family Memories
“Helping you to make your holiday special and creating memories”
Welcome to Poolside Lodges, we are a small family run secluded site of 3 holiday lodges perfect for your family holiday, get away weekend break or celebration. Our lodges can be booked individually or for a group booking up to 10 people and are ideally suited for extended families and groups of friends.
Situated on the edge of Norwich city, we recommend exploring the city’s architecture and the Norwich Lanes which host many independent shops. A number of these streets are cobbled and date back to the Tudor times. Norwich Market has recently been voted the UK’s best Outdoor Market and is home to many unique food stalls from around the world. Norwich is truly special and there is something for everyone.
The Norfolk Broads is a 10 minute drive away, a tranquil landscape. You can discover the delights of the broads by hiring a day boat, by canoe or if you are a little more adventurous by paddle board. Ranworth is a particular favourite to take in the panoramic view of the broads and its wildlife.
Our 3 lodges are set around the pool area, with each lodge retaining its privacy. Poolside Lodge sleeps 4, Studio Lodge is a one-bedroom lodge ideal for a couple and is linked to Poolside (ideal for grandparents or older children) and our Woodside Lodge is set slightly away from the pool area and sleeps 4. All our lodges have their own private hot tub.
We like to welcome you into your accommodation, show you the site facilities and to point you in the direction of great places to explore and dine. We provide the personal touch to ensure you have a great stay and allowing you to make those treasured family memories.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us, we are on hand to help you plan your stay.

Budget can always be an issue when you have a larger family as well as ensuring the children are kept occupied. Our prices and site facilities mean that you can spend your time relaxing on site whilst the children splash about in the outdoor pool and play in the garden. Having a Retro Games Room allows you to show your children real video games such as space invaders, PACMAN, Galaxion and many more. The football table and air hockey are great for a bit of family competition!

Exploring the Broads
A warm welcome from Steve and Pippa.
We have owned Poolside Lodges since 2012 moving from Cambridgeshire with our two children. We have spent many a childhood holiday in Norfolk and made many memories with our own children, with that in mind we made the change of a lifetime; we moved to Norfolk, took on a new challenge and way of life… we have never looked back. Our commute is now very short!
We love Norwich and the opportunities it has to offer to visitors and residents. We are involved in our local community and we ran the local Youth Club for a number of years.
We have met many guests, many are repeat visitors and have become friends.
Come and visit us soon to discover the charm of the Norfolk Broads for yourself. Our aim is for you to leave relaxed and refreshed, with many cherished memories.
