About the Property

Valley View Lodge is situated atop its own, private ridge, at the end of a long drive, within the wonderful, 300-acre Kelling Heath Holiday Park, with valley views to all sides, making it the perfect place to relax and do as little, or as much, as you want, whilst surrounded by the beauty of nature and an abundance of wildlife.

Despite its rustic exterior, the lodge’s interior is contemporary, luxurious and comfortable, with stunning views over woodland valleys through the many full-height windows which flood the rooms with light.  The colour scheme within the lodges’ rooms is designed to enhance feelings of relaxation, peace and calm and to blend in with the wonderful natural surroundings.

Briefly, the lodge comprises: entrance hall, spacious, open plan lounge, fitted kitchen and dining areas, large master bedroom with en-suite wet room and huge walk-in wardrobe, twin bedroom with built-in double wardrobe and family bathroom (bath with shower over).  It is fully double glazed and centrally heated for comfort, with additional wall-mounted, back-lit fire in the lounge area.  The kitchen and both bedrooms have Velux windows to watch the sky through, though, in the bedrooms, these have remotely-controlled blinds in case you want to shut the stars out!  There is unlimited wi-fi in case you cannot leave tech behind for a few days and the back-lit tv in the lounge has a built-in DVD player.

In the kitchen there is an integrated gas hob and electric fan oven, integrated dishwasher, washer/dryer and wine cooler, large fridge-freezer and all the usual appliances you would expect, including microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker, etc.  There is a set of cast iron cookware and saucepans if you decide to cook and plenty of crockery, cutlery/glassware & utensils, as well as kitchen gadgets to help with food prep.

The dining table seats 4 people comfortably, with a breakfast bar for 2 people right next to it.  The full-height window beside the dining area affords views over the valley to the north so it almost appears as if you are eating in the tree-tops, whilst the lounge area has two large, sumptuous sofas, one of which is a very comfortable sofa bed in case there are 6 guests in total.

In keeping with Kelling Heath’s renowned eco-credentials, we have researched meticulously to find fixtures and fittings for the lodge which are recycled, upcycled or recyclable, cruelty-free and sustainable, therefore ensuring your holiday at the lodge has minimum impact on the environment.  You will find very little plastic in the lodge other than that which has already been recycled or can be recycled at the end of its life.  (For more information on this and to see many more images of the lodge, please see our website at www.valleyviewlodge.co.uk).

The attention to detail in the lodge is amazing!  To mention just a few things: there’s a wide selection of wooden games to suit all ages; telescope* and binoculars, plus bird-watching log to record your sightings in; fully dimmable, energy-saving, flush ceiling lights in all rooms (those in the living areas are controllable in different zones); built-in, down-lit shelving in both bathrooms; infrared toilet flushing system in the family bathroom…the list goes on.  We will let you discover the rest!

* Kelling Heath Holiday Park has ‘Dark Sky Designation’ making it a hot spot for star-gazers.  It even has organised events when astronomers visit the Park and guide enthusiastic amateurs – see www.kellingheath.co.uk for further details.

In the site’s Village Square (5 minutes’ walk from the lodge) you will find a well-stocked shop selling many locally-sourced items and produce, the Fitness & Leisure Centre* (with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, spa pool, well-equipped gym, sauna and steam room), The Forge & Terrace bar and restaurant (great food and lovely, helpful staff), Pizza on the Square (restaurant and takeaway) and the Pavilion, home to live entertainments for all ages.  There is also a laundry, cycle hire centre and children’s playground, as well as various sporting activities such as tennis, table tennis and petanque. During the week there are various organised, nature or sports-related activities for children of differing ages and, across the Park, there are nature trails, trim tracks, fishing and conservation ponds (including bird hide) and walking/cycling trails for the whole family to enjoy.  Other events across the year on the Park include the various farmers’ and craft markets, the annual beer festival and ‘Winter in the Park.

*As guests at Valley View Lodge you will be able to use the Fitness & Leisure Centre facilities at a discount (2 for the price of 1), making a weekly pass for 2 cost just £2.21 each per day, or half that for children!  Single-day and 3-day ‘Flexi’ passes are also available.  See www.kellingheath.co.uk for rates.

Locally, there is also much to see and do if you want to go off-site, with plenty of ideas provided within the lodge for you to read about.  Weybourne beach is 1.3 miles from the lodge and the lovely town of Sheringham, with its beach, shopping streets and other amenities, is just over 3 miles east of the Park, and Cromer (famous for its crabs and lifeboats) a further 4 miles east of Sheringham.  Local events are numerous across the year, the first of 2019 being the Sheringham Scira Viking Festival, with events across school half-term week, culminating with a parade and ceremonial burning of a Viking longboat on the beach on 23rd February.  Please see www.visitnorthnorfolk.com and https://sheringhamtowncouncil.gov.uk/event/sheringham-viking-festival/ for more information.

If you want to go off-site and leave the car behind, a short walk to the edge of the Park takes you to a station platform of the Poppy Line steam railway where you can take the train to Sheringham and then return via the lovely town of Holt, with its abundance of quaint, independent shops.  That’s at least a day of your holiday sorted without any hassles finding car parking spaces!  (For golf enthusiasts, Sheringham has a lovely links course that should provide a decent challenge and some lovely views!)

If you choose to spend time at the lodge there are large decked areas to sit on and enjoy the woodland views and wildlife from, including a main deck which is south-facing: perfect for sunbathing and/or eating al-fresco.  (The decks have non-slip areas to make them safer to use when wet).  There are other garden areas that have been left mainly wild so that they draw the wildlife in, especially muntjac deer, rabbits and the abundance of squirrels that occupy the woods.  (Down on the Village Square you can also visit the red squirrels as the Park is a committed member of the Red Squirrel Breeding Programme that aims to help increase numbers of these endearing creatures in certain areas of the UK).  All planted bulbs and flowers in the lodge gardens are native woodland dwellers to complement the location.

Having stayed at the lodge ourselves we can guarantee you peace, relaxation and seclusion with as much or as little to do as you want in a stunning location.  Whether you are looking for a 3-night, 5-night or 7-night break, please get in touch to ask any questions you might have.  We will be very glad to help.

Fabulous

Valley View Lodge is the most perfect setting to relax and unwind. The Lodge has everything provided to make you feel at home, lots of thought has gone in to sourcing natural elements which make the Lodge unique. The views are wonderful, and the park amenities are also a plus with Cromer and Sheringham just ‘around the corner’. We took the local steam train from Weybourne Station to Sheringham which was a treat. We will definitely be returning in the future.
