This is our 3rd visit to Upthorpe Lodges and each time we have stayed in a different lodge. Birch lodge is every bit as good as the others.
We used the lodge as a base to visit Lackford Lakes, Minsmere, Diss, Dedham, Flatford, Bury St Edmunds, Southwold & Ipswich.
The lodge is well equipped and has everything that you will need. Despite there being 4 Lodges they are all really private and the only noise you will hear is the wildlife. Ian & Debbie are great hosts who will be on hand if you need them but otherwise leave you to it.
We are looking forward to our fourth visit already so we can test out Maple Lodge.
Go ahead and book, you won't be disappointed.
Couldn't have imagined.a better place for a quiet couples getaway, secluded and only the sound of nature to keep you company! Ian is a wondeful host who is always so happy to stop and have a chat, and leaves so many helpful guides to the area along with personalised tips on places to visit! Honestly couldn't have asked for a better holiday, and we had such luck with the weather, we were barely out of the hot tub! The addition of the BBQ and the decor of the lodge, makes you feel as though you are in a villa aboard! This place really is out of this world, can't wait to come back!
My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary by spending a weekend at the lodge and I can honestly say we were absolutely delighted with it. From the beautiful garden pathway to the lodge, to the decking, hot tub, and excellently kitted out lodge itself, we can highly recommend it. I requested a surprise bottle of champagne, which was provided hassle free, and the hosts have even posted back a shirt that I forgot on departure. Very low interaction with the lovely and attentive hosts Ian and Debbie - which suited us perfectly. Ian was quick to respond to email inquiries, and daily maintained the hot tub, and Debbie was lovely when we bumped into her working on the garden. Fabulous and would stay again!
Our second visit to Birch lodge ,our 3rd to Upthorpe ,and once again Ian and Debbie prove why its so popular,
Wonderful location, very high standard throughout , attention to detail and nothing is to much trouble,
Spent a relaxing weekend celebrating Yo's birthday and our 3rd anniversary, star gazing in the hot tub , didn't want to leave,' as normal'
Looking forward to returning again in August for my birthday .
