“Relaxing Peaceful Birthday getaway”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Just returned from a great relaxing weekend break at Cedar Lodge. The lodge is stunning, beautifully decorated,spacious and has everthing you want - including an amazing hot tub ( even in the middle of November). Welcome pack on arrival is a nice touch and the owners are very helpful.Only 20 minutes drive from Bury St Edmonds - nice shopping centre with all the chains,a few independent shops and loads of eateries. We ate at the Giggling Squid Thai restaurant reall nice. Would highly recommend this lodge - very private and peaceful and expectional value for money - will return again. Thank you for a lovely stay,

“Birch Lodge, Upthorpe Lodges. Just fab!”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Delighted with this peach of a holiday let and so glad we found it. Perfectly located for a short get away, situated about 1 hour from home. Nearby you can visit Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and Newmarket, with Constable Country to the South. Many nice walks and places to eat .Lodge itself was perfect - tastefully furnished, newly built, clean and well-equipped with modern fitted kitchen, king size bed, hot tub and lots of nice added touches. Loved it!

“One of the most relaxing short brakes ever.”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This place is amazing very quite rural location ideal to explore the Suffolk countryside and only a short drive to the broads. Home from home comforts and a very warm welcome. The hot tub is also fantastic after a long days exploring to come back to and relax with a nice drink and a soak. Could not ask for more. Will be booking again for next year.

Stayed here for my cousins wedding in April, was over the moon when we walked in to the lodge. Beautiful lodge, well cleaned and looked after. Private garden & hot tub. We loved it & are returning in August!

Would recommend to anyone!

“Very peaceful”
Reviewed July 30, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a lovely weekend break. Only ventured to the local store and back again but even that was a lovely stroll. We were amazed how quiet the area is which is great when you want a break. The lodge certainly is as described on the website. Extremely well equipped kitchen. Having Netflix was an added bonus for the evening. Outside garden and hot tub are lovely to sit with good furniture - the garden is quite a sun trap. Generous amount towels left for the stay.

“Birch Lodge- lovely space, relaxing break with nice bonus of hot tub”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Birch lodge- almost brand new, immaculately clean, well designed relaxing space with lovely thoughtful touches from the owners like tea, coffee machine, milk, biscuits and fresh flowers. There is a large decked area to be enjoyed if the weather is good with the extra bonus of a hot tub in a very private enclosed garden.We enjoyed a nice walk in Thetford Forest and a visit to Ickworth House ( National Trust Property near Bury St Edmonds) and the market town of Diss.
The owner informed us that there is triple glazing and extra insulation to make it comfortable in the Winter however we were lucky to have great weather during our stay. It's in a rural area on the outskirts of a village so I imagine it would be difficult to visit without a car for transport. Highly recommended for a relaxing retreat. (P.S Tip -take some dish washer tabs - no need to wash up on holiday!)

Birch lodge is our newest of three lodges, with different decor to the first two, so we're glad you liked it. We'll also add some dishwasher tablets though! Thanks.
