Thorpe Forest Lodges
Thorpe Forest Lodges offer a peaceful and tranquil setting for your holiday with plenty of facilities on the doorstep. The children's play area and the activity centre mean your stay can be as relaxing or adventurous as you wish. If you like to get out and explore then take advantage of the ranger led walks and the nature trails as well as the cycle paths. After all of that exercise you could head to the shop and coffee lounge for a well deserved treat.
The Golden Oak Lodges make your stay at Thorpe Lodges even more special as they come with private outdoor hot tubs. For couples we love the Golden Oak Hideaway which has panoramic forest views and a luxury en suite with sunken bath. The log burning stove adds a romantic feel to the lodge and the bathrobes are a luxurious touch.
For a really unique holiday you could consider the Golden Oak Treehouse. Top of the range luxury lodge which sleeps up to 10. Highlights include the games console, log burning stove, luxury bedrooms and of course the outdoor hot tub. The unique feature of this lodge is the adventurer bridge which links the lodge to a treehouse with double bedroom and shower. An extra special hideaway.
The local area is ideal for exploring with the Norfolk Broads less than an hour away and the charming town of Bury St Edmunds close by. For fantastic shops and restaurants head to Norwich which is easily accessible.
Our Top Tip
"Melsop Farm Park is just 7 miles from Thorpe Lodges and makes an excellent day out. See a fantastic collection of animals or visit one of the many events going on throughout the year such as the clown shows."

Holiday Period rare was extortionate
Gurj, Hockley, Essex
very nice and spacious
needs a touch up bit tired.
hot tube cover needs replacing as its broken.
not much to complain about
Excellent holiday experience, everything at hand, peaceful, not crowded, not loud groups, centre parks how it used to be. Can park outside the house..fab.
Kids loved it, dog made very welcome. Will be back
Great size accommodation, hot tub was clean and warm. The heating was independently controlled for different rooms so we could get our swimming gear dry but keep the bedrooms cooler.
Vishnu, St. Albans
Stayed with Forest holidays/lodges on numerous occasions and never fails to deliver. Kids, dog & us absolutely loved it.
Date of stay: 10th April 2017
Accommodation type: Golden Oak 2
The lodge was lovely and clean on arrival and very well equipped. This was our first holiday with our mud/water loving Labrador puppy and I was nervous she would turn it into something that resembles our home, but it was perfect for us and the floors were easy to sweep at the end of each day.
The hot tub was sublime and there was nothing better than at the end of a long day sitting in it looking up at the stars.
Date of stay: 27th March 2017
Accommodation type: Golden Oak 3
Had a great time. We will be back and intend to try the other locations on offer.
I'm not usually so gushy but from the moment you arrive, the check in chat is so welcoming. It was even more than we expected, so beautiful and relaxing. It's not a wild wood, but there are forests outside the "Forest holiday's area" to explore and it all worked so well. We especially liked the rubber ducky man coming to sort our hot tub out daily.
Money wise, it's not cheap and the only reason I say value for money wasn't a ten is because we were unable to get a lodge for just 2 so had to pay for more people than were there and everything is additional, bit surprised to pay extra for wifi in this day and age.
But dont let that stop you treating yourself to this lux!!
Fantastic lodges, if this is the cheapest I can only imagine how good the top lodges are. You didn't feel like you'd missed out on the luxury as even the Copper Beech lodges were lovely. We didn't have a bread board which seemed a staple item to leave out, and a little pointer in how the oven works would have been useful.
Spacious & stylish.
What a beautiful setting, the lodge was well appointed but a couple of points. With dogs welcome it would be a good idea to leave a vacuum available. The wooden floor needed a good steam clean which we would not have noticed but we had an 8 month old crawling and her knees feet and hands were black despite sweeping the floor each morning and washing with mop. The wi fi was not available and in the normal set up would not have been an issue but my daughter had an important application to put in and had to go off site a couple of times to complete it. If you say you have wi fi then you have to deliver. Just one other thing the dishwasher was not working efficiently, we had to re wash a number of things every time we used it. Having said that we loved the venue.
Had a wonderful break here. worked well as a group of 7 of mixed ages.really impressed with high standed of the lodges and whole site.would go again. we all agreed we all had a fab time
The staff were very welcoming on arrival and continued to be helpful throughout our short stay. We enjoyed the activities and would have liked the opportunity to do a few more. Unfortunately, the zip wire we could see in the forest wasn't part of Forest Holidays. The Forest Ranger and Canoes were good activities to do.
was the perfect holiday for us and our 2.5 year old son.
lovely hot tub
kitchen work surface but small for a 3 bedroom cabin.
lovely bike rides, lovely villages close by,
a hidden gem was horses running free a very short drive away. its just lovely in Thetford.
little bit tired accommodation. could do with small touch ups and the hot tub cover defiantly needs replacing.
but did not hamper the holiday.
Fantastic, booked last minute and was amazing. Bike hire a bit expensive tho. Millie my daughter had a bad fall and was looked after really well. Great food & staff
Fantastic place, great accommodation & brilliant staff. Couldn't have wished for a better break on Mothers Day Weekend.
Lovely stay, lodges are fabulous only criticism would be the "centre parts" approach to making money, wi if costs extra, movies are extra and so on, come well packed and bring all you need, lovely place and lodge but after you have paid a lot of money would have been nice to get a little more in lodge.
Welcomed by a lovely lady on reception who sat us down and went through site amenities, our lodge & nearby dog friendly pubs â€“ even our excitable 9 month old Labrador puppy was made a fuss of and given her weight in dog treats. The Customer Service throughout our entire stay was first class.
The surrounding area is beautiful with lots of wildlife to see and we walked for MILES (and got a little lost). The shop on site is well equipped and the decking area outside is perfect for a well earned cold drink after a trek through the forest.
Bravely, (as we had our 19 & 20 year old daughters with us) we didn't opt for the Wifi/Sky package and with no mobile reception in the lodge we were completely off grid... bliss!
Amazing holiday, we will definately go back! We stayed 4 nights, we wanted a break from work and from people being able to get hold of us so we were not bothered about wifi!
We also were not bothered about a hot tub or wood burner for this holiday.
Our son and dog loved it, our son keeps asking to go back! We didnt get to walk all the routes as one was too muddy and the other to long for our sons little legs! It was nice being able to step out of the lodge straight into the woods. Our son liked the play apperatus dotted about along the walk.
The lodge itself was so comfy! The facilities were great, the only minor fault was that the sofa and cushions had a few dirty marks on them on arrival, but that was it. Everything else was clean. Good working kitchen and bathroom facilities also. We didnt have a problem with the heating, it was easy to use.
We were so lucky with the warm weather we had our first bbq of the year on the decking in March!
We really liked how the staff were so relaxed about dogs, making a fuss of ours and allowing dogs in the cafe. When leaving we sat outside the cafe with a hot drink. Our son liked playing the games in the cafe too!
Our dog liked the fact that he had a welcome treat waiting for him in the lodge on arrival!!
So many positives, another big one was that there wasnt rule after rule written everywhere, we could all just relax and enjoy our break!
We loved the fact we could open the curtains and the view out of the huge windows was squirrels and birds playing in the trees! So peaceful!
The only noise, which sometimes rattled the windows was aircraft from the local RAF base flying over.
We would have liked check in times to be a bit earlier than 4pm and later than 10am. We will know for next time to book extra time.
The location was easy for us to get to, it was 10mins drive to tescos and 30mins to Bury st Edmunds.
We didnt take part in any of the activities.
We cant really fault this holiday, every aspect was great! We will look for good deals and book again in the future!
