Welcome to Alderwood self-catering holiday lodges Norfolk. The land at Alderwood, has been in the family since 1948 although the family history dates back in the village to the 1800’s!  Our three luxury timber holiday lodges are set in 9 acres of tranquil woodland & grassland, beside the river “Little Ouse”. We are on the edge of the Brecks area in South Norfolk with its unique flora & fauna. The market towns of Diss and Thetford are 8 miles away. The lovely historic town of Bury St Edmunds with its cathedral and Abbey gardens and with many great shops is 16 miles away.  Come to Norfolk and visit us soon for a unique log cabin holiday you will love. 


“Burnside” is a two bedroom holiday lodge, with kitchen/diner, lounge area and main bathroom.


“Hawthorns” is a three bedroom holiday lodge, with lounge/dining area, kitchen and two bathrooms.


“Brambles” is a two bedroom holiday lodge, lounge/dining area, kitchen and two bathrooms.

Our holiday park is a wonderful Norfolk get away and we achieved the Gold Award for more than 10 years for the David Bellamy Conservation scheme and in 2013, we were given the Special Distinction Award for our Bird Hide we built from recycled leylandi trees felled on site, which was officially opened by Professor David Bellamy along with the children from our local primary school & the Brownies club.

  • As soon as one enters the site, the interaction with nature begins. At the hide, one sees Jays, whitethroats, blackcaps, long-tailed tits, kingfisher, hovering kestrels, grey squirrels and water voles – all of these noted in a thirty minute session one morning in early summer.

    Of course, the holiday lodges provide the ideal central point from which to explore Norfolk & Suffolk.

  • Thank you for the lovely log cabin & all the help with the baby stuff.  Was a lovely long weekend.  Enjoyed visits to Diss & Norwich but also a lazy day or two walking in the woods.  Was so nice to come back to warm & cozy!  Thank you. L, P & C

  • Our 4th visit to Brambles!  The holiday seems to get better each time!  So peaceful and relaxing.  Just what we needed this week.  Thank you. C, N & M
