Sexton's Lodge

Cromer, Norfolk

+ Add to favourites
  • Occasionally, on busier event days, it may be necessary to restrict traffic exiting the estate on a one way system via the western drive across the park. The exit is beside Sexton’s Lodge and, turning right, you will join the A148 at Aylmerton. This is to improve the flow of traffic along the drive – entry will always be via the main Cromer Lodge gates. The next events are ‘Honey Fair’ on 26th August and the Green Build Event 5-6 Sept

This attractive and spacious detached cottage is set beside the former exit gateway from Felbrigg Hall. It has an enclosed and private garden with direct access to miles of walks in and around Felbrigg Park. Standing on a quiet back lane it is only minutes from sandy beaches and bustling market towns in North Norfolk, renowned for its individual shops and galleries, traditional pubs and good restaurants. There is a village inn, bar and restaurant in Aylmerton, which is within walking distance via the foot path opposite.

Things to see and do nearby

East Anglia, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.

    Very quiet and right next to woods with lovely walks. Good access to NT properties. Very clean and tidy. Good to see that the oil-fired boiler has been moved to shed.

    Location, access to the estate and location. The cleanliness was outstanding and far more than very satisfied. All the staff in the Hall and around the estate were helpful, welcoming and friendly.

    Good value for money

    The NT marketing of these properties is very honest and accurate and they are very good value for money. Great location for our dogs to enjoy their weekend

    Beautiful cottage

    Another excellent stay at Sexton's Lodge. Cottage even better than last time as boiler is now in out house not in kitchen. Beautiful cottage in a fantastic location. Perfect for a holiday with our Dobie dog.

    Amazing Location

    We had a wonderful week in this comfortable and cosy house in what turned out to be a very cold but sunny week. There is clearly a step up in quality when hiring a cottage from the National Trust. Amazing location and perfect for our dog. Perhaps the brass bed could have been more roomy. Or perhaps we should have been smaller.

    One of the loveliest NT cottages

    One of the loveliest NT cottages we have stayed in both for comfort and location.

    We enjoyed the quiet solitude

    We enjoyed the quiet solitude of this beautiful cottage surrounded by woods and fields. The location is perfect. The beaches at Sheringham and Holkham are delight for people and dogs alike. A big thank you to Mandy for the welcome and little touches that make the cottage so special
