Had a lovely week staying in Willows retreat. The lodge is situated in a lovely area which makes it easy to stay and relax or visit the surrounding areas such as the Norfolk Broads. The lodge itself is beautiful on the outside and inside. It has everything you need for a relaxing and very comfortable stay with the added bonus of a private hot tub.

We loved our stay at Willows Retreat, we would definitely recommend. Gorgeous, peaceful location and we couldnt fault it other than we could have done with some extra towels instead of using the same ones for the hot tub and shower!
