*Now with its own hot tub*
One of just four stunning contemporary, eco lodges, decorated and designed to a high standard, we think you will find everything you need for a relaxing getaway at Upthorpe Lodges. For when you're eating in, the well-equipped kitchen will keep a creative cook happy, with dining area alongside. It will be no surprise that there's a fridge and a microwave, but there's also a full size freezer for your ice cream and more, plus a conventional oven for your Sunday roast. The stylish furniture has been carefully selected to provide comfort and relaxation, and on sunny days you'll want to roll back the doors and let the outside in. Sun loungers and outdoor dining table allow you to make the most of the daytime sun and the garden area is lit for evening use too.

All four lodges at Upthorpe Lodges inclu...

Our 4th visit to the Lodges, Our first stay in Oak. As always, another amazing stay! We were celebrating Yo's special birthday & our anniversary.

Oak Lodge near Stanton in sunny Suffolk was the perfect place to base ourselves for a few days in Suffolk. Spotlessly clean with every modern amenity, it was also private and very quiet. The front garden with large timber deck was also appreciated as a sunny spot for a quiet drink. Handy to the local pub and shop, with plenty...

Management response:

Great to hear you found everything to your liking. We're lucky that Suffolk is one of the sunniest counties in the UK of course! Hope the rest of your grand tour was everything you wanted it to be.
