Hand crafted from locally sourced Douglas Fir, this palatial log house at Pentney Lakes in Norfolk provides a luxurious base for groups or larger family breaks. Fir Lodge is a three bedroom property boasting a vast upper floor with two balconies, a 14 seater oak dining table and spacious lounge area with 42" Freeview TV. Subtle under floor heating provides warmth and the room is filled with light through the roof windows. To the exterior, there is a large garden and a hot tub for guests to relax in or enjoy a game of pool with facilities provided on the ground floor of the lodge. Short breaks are welcome and we also offer discounts for smaller groups. Stag and hen parties are accepted but please note we do not take groups of exclusively young people. Catering, beauty treatment, fishing lessons and horse riding can be arranged for your stay and you can also enjoy canoeing on the lake, water-skiing or a horse carriage ride.
The three bedrooms are situated on the ground floor and are presented as a family room with super king-size bed, two single beds, a travel cot, walk in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom with shower. There is a bunk bedroom with adult size bunks and additional single bed plus a double room. Bedrooms two and three share use of a bathroom with shower WC and wash basin. There are also two futon-style sofas which can convert into double beds. The kitchen is set on the first floor with the living accommodation and is well equipped with two fridges, freezer, dishwasher, cooker, hob, extractor and microwave.

The lodge was designed and built by a team of local craftsman with each log sourced from the nearby woodlands and hand-scraped to remove the bark. It was hand-cut to fit perfectly together and has been fitted out with English Oak furnishings and the roof is clad with slats of Western Red Cedar imported from Canada. The lodge is well insulated - up to 18 inches - and 92% carbon neutral. All this combined with the wood-pellet burner for heating makes the lodge an extremely environmentally friendly property.
