Where's Heathside Lodges?
Helen&Peter Parkins
We have just lived in heaven for the last 4 nights and 5 days. A quiet serene secluded site where you are left alone too your own devices with no one bothering you. The lodge has every mod con you can think of and more with a hot tub fed by softened water. Warm and inviting on arrival with your own bath robe and slippers too match as well as your own individual shower and bath as a couple. The proprieters' of Heathside Lodge have nailed it big time so get your spot booked now because like Wimbledon there will be a long waiting list soon.

Nicola, Rochester
Date of stay: 9th April 2018
A great holiday if you want to kick back and relax. The kids loved the hot tub and outdoor facilities. Lodge was very spacious and spotlessly clean. My only comment would be that the living room could do with a standard lamp. The lighting is very bright and its on or off. Apart from that everything was perfect. We will definitely be back.
Stephen, London

I went away with 2 friends. We had a lovely time. The lodge was clean and tidy. We had our own private hot tub which just made our 4 night stay complete. The only down side was we arrived on the Monday at 3pm and our tub wasn't warm enough to use untill Tuesday. But other than that we had a fab time. They supplied us with a list of restaurants and pubs near by too.
Selina, Essex
Date of stay: 26th February 2018
Lovely accommodation with everything that you need for
a break away.
Natasha
Date of stay: 26th February 2018
Its the 2nd time we have been here, the lodge is stunning and immaculately clean. The only reason I gave the overall rating 8/10 is due to arriving each time on a Friday and not being able to use the hot tub until the following day as it wasnt hot enough.

Date of stay: 12th January 2018
Nice lodge, very small comments such as the plates were tiny, not a lot of utensils in kitchen, hot tub lights broken, sofas dip when sat on, stingy with the bin bags/cleaning things.
However this did not effect our stay, I would recommend staying here just bring your own kitchen things if you are fussy like us.
Lynn, Doncaster
Date of stay: 3rd January 2018
All in all a excellent lodge spacious and very clean
Wiktoria, Diss

Wonderful lodge in a beautiful area. We love coming to Suffolk.
Lynn, Derby
Date of stay: 30th October 2017
Would recommend.
Jessica, Bury St Edmunds
Date of stay: 30th October 2017
Absolutely stunning. Very spacious and beautifully bare in decoration. The kitchen was well equipped with enough utensils and space for me to cook meals for 8 as we spread over two lodges. The ensuite in the master bedroom is the same size as the main bathroom - huge! Hot tub was lovely and warm and we enjoyed it even when the temperature wasn't great outside. The only 1 thing I would say is the hot tub definitely wont fit 6. Probably only 4 realistically as the water level will rise too much. This wasn't really a problem for us as we only had 4 in each lodge but if there are 6 people you'll have to take turns!
Helen, Norwich
Date of stay: 30th October 2017
Fantastic weekend.

A great holiday! Would be happy to return anytime.

Date of stay: 27th October 2017
A beautiful, peaceful situated lodge. Everything you need is there. We used the jucuzzi both day and night, such a relaxing way to spend your time soaking in bubbles looking at the countryside in the day or the stars at night. I really liked and appreciated that you don't park your car next to/outside your lodge. It stops all the banging of car doors and shining of headlights when people come and go. To be honest we never heard any cars at all! There is a lot of space inside the lodge, we loved it, we went in October for 7 nights so appreciated the underfloor heating, we never felt cold. I really liked that there was no clutter, no silly pictures or ornaments, clean, neat and peaceful. We loved it and will be back
Emma, Fife
Date of stay: 20th October 2017
This was my first time away with my kids. Wasnt expecting it to be as nice as the pictures but it was actually nicer. Saw reviews on the hot tubs saying they were too small but us 3 adults and 2 kids fitted in fine! Staff were very friendly, on site shop was handy and very cheap. The lodge its self was massive and had plenty room. Lots of towels and very modern furnishings. Will definitely be back, hopefully for a longer period! My only thing that I would say could be improved is the door locks on the inside are twist and unlock and when you have an escapee artist son like mine its not very handy. Apart from that 10/10!
Lee, Stansted
Date of stay: 13th October 2017
Amazing short break. I would only say that the mattress in the master bedroom was not very comfortable, otherwise it was really great
David, Derby
Date of stay: 13th October 2017
The lodge was absolutely superb with everything needed for a relaxing holiday.
Cannot agree with the comments regarding siting of the lodges as they are not too close together and you can only see your immediate neighbours. The lodges are fairly new and young trees have been planted between each one, once that begin to grow and mature each lodge will have complete privacy.
We would highly recommend these lodges and hope to revisit in 2018.
Donna, Erith
Date of stay: 9th October 2017

Staff were very friendly on site including in the shop.
Very relaxing and peaceful.
Emily, Norwich
Date of stay: 6th October 2017
Would highly recommended and would definitely return! Only tiny negative was the WiFi - although it was very good when connected, we found we had to reconnect every hour. Not a problem if you don't use it much but we did. Otherwise 10/10! Great prices too!
Keith, Chesterfield
Date of stay: 6th October 2017
Very pleasant overall stay. Would defenatly stay again
Teresa, Harrow

Would have been better to have walk-in shower for elderly mother - couldn't use bath with overhead shower -no handrail.
Roger, Northampton
Date of stay: 30th September 2017
Liked the lodges. A pity they had not been arranged slightly at an angle to each other which would have increased privacy and not given all residents a straight line view along all of the balconies.
Holly, Norwich
Date of stay: 29th September 2017
Surprised my partner for a 4 night get away. Had a brilliant time and neither of us wanted to leave. Would definitely stay again.

Sharon, Biggleswade
Date of stay: 23rd September 2017
All really good, only slight request would be to block in decking side panel otherwise you looked straight on to next doors hot tub & they into ours. Got round it by putting the hot tub lid there!
Stephen, Cricklade, Wiltshire
Date of stay: 22nd September 2017
The lodge was fabulous, with plenty of space and the facilities (including the hot tub) were excellent. We had a problem on the first night getting the DVD player to work - the remote control was very confusing - but after that we didn't really want to watch the telly anyway.
Marie
Date of stay: 22nd September 2017
Beautiful lodge only complaint airless
Diane, South Norfolk
Date of stay: 22nd September 2017
The lodge was lovely and a great hot tub. Very comfortable for 6 of us. Lodges are a bit close together so not private. The owner made sure we realised it costs a lot of money to refill the hot tub every change of user!! He also hammered the point home of not leaving the outside lights on and also said he was worried that if all 6 of us got into the hot tub the water may come out over the top due to the size of us!
Denis, London

Lodges were lovely, really spacious and hot tubs the icing on the cake! Site was really peaceful and tranquil and was clean and well maintained, the shop has some useful bargains. Would recommend as a weekend retreat else if planning to stay longer get ready to use your car to find things to do, but it's a lovely part of the country so go out and explore!

Immaculate when we arrived.
All essentials are supplied in the kitchen and hairdryers in the bedroom.
Slippers and robes also along with separate towels for use with hot tub.

Plenty storage space provided in the large wardrobes and drawers.

Entertainment also taken care of with multiple TV's and DVD player. Docking station, board games and books are a great touch. Even local take away menus provided.

There seemed nothing that they had not thought of.
Tony, Norwich
Date of stay: 5th June 2017
Possibly the best short break in the U.K. my wife and I have had in years, the owners were friendly and helpful, staff too.

Beautiful views and a cheap convenient on site shop, the log cabin itself was stunning and remote which was perfect for the nights in the hot tub with a few bottles of wine, we will be back again next year.

Ruth, Aylsham
Date of stay: 20th March 2017
I have no complaints at all, but a thought....I have a disabled husband and it would be rather nice if a walk in shower room were possible for his ease of access rather than an over the bath shower....maybe in the future....?

Great lodge.
Nicola
Date of stay: 20th March 2017
Lodge was clean and tidy. The park itself was in a good location for all the amenities. It was nice to have a shop on site. The only thing I would say is the the location of the lodge was overlooking a large grass area and sitting in the hot tub there wasn't any privacy.

Our third stay at this location. Again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's peaceful and we always find the staff to be friendly and helpful. The lodge is comfortable, beds good and bathroom facilities are excellent and everywhere clean. Only negatives this time was that we suspect that our lodge had been empty for a while as it was very cold (the floors freezing) and it took ages to warm up. A lot of the heaters were switched off. We also had an issue with the fridge which didn't seem to get cold enough. However I consider these blips and everything else was just lovely. LOVE the hot tub We will be back!
Susan, Norwich

Orwell lodge great. Though as a female would like a mirror in bedroom with plug near for hair etc. Had to use mirror in lounge.
Also main en suite needs towel ring for hand towel as towel rail some distance from basin. This does not alter my rating. An excellent holiday. 10/10
Cherie, Staffordshire

Best lodge we have ever stayed in.
Spotless & spacious. Only slight criticism was the fridge as it was difficult to store bottles of milk on the door shelf.
Just loved out stay so much that we have already re booked!
Susan, Newark
Date of stay: 15th August 2016
This is our third summer visit to Deben Premier Lodge no 11. So it must be good.
Great for the children to run around safely whilst we can sit on the veranda and still keep an eye on them.
Why not all tens.. Comfort most things are thought of but could do with a few extra cooking/ food storage things.
Furniture & fittings... a must is a larger fridge with a family and want to eat in fridge is too small.
Was very pleased with the new hot tub cover so much lighter and easy to handle.
Getting quite and expensive week hence value for money was down.

The lodge was lovely only let down was the hot tub being quite a basic one, though it was still lovely!

No complaints for the lodge itself, it was lovely, with the little extras such as board games and wifi included as well as outdoor decking (we absolutely loved dining Alfresco)

Would highly recommend staying in a Deben Lodge

Garry, Kingswinford
Date of stay: 1st July 2016
Very spacious lodge for the two of us - especially having a bathroom each!
The hot tub was luxurious - our first time in a lodge that has one and we'll be looking for similar lodges in the future.
The decking area next to the hot tub had a pleasant view of the countryside and should give more privacy in a year's time when the laurel bushes have grown some more.
Donna, Hertfordshire
Date of stay: 17th June 2016
Great place to stay. This was our third visit and we would definitely go back again. Location is close to Southwold, the lodge is clean and has everything you need. The hot tub was a hit with our little girl along with the little park, nature walk and donkeys. Staff were very friendly and helpful - couldn't ask for more
Taylors, Nottinghamshire
Date of stay: 3rd June 2016
We arrived at the lodges and were immediately shown around by the owner, he gave us the full tour, the do's and don'ts, showed us how to work the hot tub and then left us too it. The lodge was spotlessly clean, and by 8pm that night we were in the hot tub. We'd seen reviews that said they weren't private enough, but it wasn't an issue for us. The on site shop gave us everything we needed, and 5 minutes drive away is a decent enough little town for a pub lunch and the basics. Other than the awful weather it was a great week, on a great site, in a lovely lodge.
Michelle, Bury St Edmunds

Gavin, Hitchin
Date of stay: 30th May 2016
The lodge was amazing! It had everything you could possibly need and the fluffy robes and hot tub were to die for! Although there are other lodges very close, it felt quite private and secluded. The big green open space right next to the lodges was a real bonus for ball games & frisbee. The location was also perfect as the bike ride to the coast (Walberswick or Southwold), and to Dunwich and Minsmere is easy and relatively safe. And the local pub only 5 minutes walk away was really appreciated. :)

We stayed at deben premier lodge at halesworth over Easter, the lodge was lovely couldn't fault it at all. One thing to note was if there are 6 of you staying then pack a large saucepan as we found it a bit of a struggle to cook large amounts with the size of the pans provided. Would definitely return though

Beautiful lodge warm and cosy and the hot tub was amazing. Perfect for a romantic getaway. Very helpful and friendly staff. The lodge was immaculate and robes and slippers a lovely touch. Only slight criticism was that there isn't a lot of kitchen utensils. Was no tongs for sausages/bacon but otherwise fantastic would highly recommend.

Stayed in Lodge No.8. There was only the two of us but were allocated a 3 bed lodge.
Lovely, clean lodge with adequate cooking facilities. We didn't use the oven so don't know if it worked.
Lots of room, enough clothing storage.
Very warm inside, great after getting out of the hot-tub on chilly Feb/March evenings.
Bathrobes and plenty of towels provided, even extra ones to use on getting out of the hot-tub.
Shop has a decent range of products at reasonable prices.
Owner and staff very friendly.
Hope to visit again :-)

Melanie, Ilford

The lodge was absolutely fantastic. Warm and cosy and with every mod con. The hot tub of course if the icing on the cake and it was great to know we could use it an any time whatever the weather. Only tip I would give is to bring your own towelling slippers as the ones provided are very flimsy and also two swimming costumes so that you don't have to try and get back into a wet costume if you fancy another dip before your costume had dried out.
Susan, King's Lynn
Date of stay: 25th January 2016
A proper path from the car parking area to the chalet would be good as crossing wet grass to access your chalet was not good.A bit more privacy around the rear of the lodge would be good as this area is visible by everybody when you are using the hot tub.

The lodge was nice but the sofa was very narrow so not easy to get comfortable on. Could also do with more than four plates, etc. Although there was a dish washer there wasn't enough flatware to actually use it. The grater was also rusty.

This was our second visit and we actually stayed in the exact same lodge. The lodges are perfect. Warm, comfortable and well equipped. Hot tub was fab. Staff were all so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We were there Christmas week and were delighted to find a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in the lodge. We would highly recommend.
Jacqueline, Colchester

Merely niggles, that there was not a shaver socket, the edges of the kitchen cabinets had not been cleaned in some while and although the bathroom was extremely large maybe this would have been better with a separate toilet and bathroom.. An enjoyable stay nonetheless.

Lovely lodge with probably the most private hot tub on the site. Although there are only two of us we find having the second bathroom really useful, especially when getting out of the hot tub and both want a shower at the same time. The heating is very good (we visit in December) and if we are lucky we even get a Christmas Tree.

We were very pleased with the lodge and its quiet surroundings and enjoyed a very relaxing long weekend. The owners were welcoming and helpful. The only thing that stopped it being truly special was that my husband found the bed mattress rather lumpy. But that is the worst that I can say the rest was perfect. That said we will probably return even if we have to sit in the hot tub in the rain again!

Downside the fridge is to small for a family of six if not eating out much milk bottles fall off the door easily when opening there is ample room for a big fridge freeze at the side of units.

Lodge was very nice, hot tub good, clean, nice site, lodges quite close together, can sometimes hear sounds from other lodges, hedges growing, which will screen a bit more. Enjoyed our stay in the lodge, would return, perhaps out of season, which would make it less expensive.
Crouch, Norwich

Very clean lodge and comfortable beds. Nice to have carpet in the bedrooms as quite often lodges have wooden floors throughout. Hot tub a really nice size for two. Only thing I would say - which is usually the same wherever we have stayed - is that the curtains in the bedrooms are quite thin so daylight comes through quite early in the Summer. Not really an issue and it certainly won't stop us from visiting again!

The lodge was spotless and modern - lots of thick towels in the bedrooms. Plenty of storage, spacious rooms, shower & bath and large heated towel rails in the bathrooms. The hot tub was great, very warm - we used it daily! The WiFi was a little slow but that is to be expected and it is very rural. Beautiful large grounds, wildlife, 3 gorgeous donkeys nearby, lovely walks. Would definitely return.

If I could give a rating for cleanliness it would be a definite 10+, our lodge was spotless. The bedding and towels were of a good quality and a crisp white. The lodge was also spacious.We were greeted warmly on arrival and given useful advice about the lodge, site and local area. The lady in the shop on site was also very friendly and it was a refreshing change to find that the shop was not over priced, consequently we bought our supplies there rather than heading off to a larger supermarket. We were provided with a list of local pubs and tried three for dinner during our stay, they were all very nice. The site is in an attractive environment. Would definitely recommend for a quiet relaxing break.

Was in lodge 13, this one is the one right opposite the shop, it's still private as hot tub is sunken ans there are trees around its veranda. Beds are very comfy, and both ensuites are huge. They both have a bath with overhead shower, toilet and mirror with inbuilt lighting to help us ladies when doing our makeup :) wooden flooring throughout other than in the bedrooms. Beautiful furniture throughout too. Kitchen had everything we needed and more, including a dishwasher! only thing that would be a slight issue for some people (wasn't for me) was that there is only a fridge, no freezer.

Our accommodation was lovely. Very clean, tastefully decorated and in excellent condition.
A couple of suggestions:
1. A mirror in each bedroom for hairdressing would be more convenient than hair drying in the lounge.
2. A few pictures on the walls would offer a more homely feel to the accommodation
3. A pathway up to the lodge would help to prevent dirt being brought in on shoes.

Overall, we were very happy with our four-night stay and would highly recommend

This is the first time we have had a two bedroom lodge, our usual one bedroom was fully booked.

A great place to stay with plenty of walks to pubs for a well earned lunch and the hot tub is bliss.

We visited the site when it first opened and they have maintained the same high standards in their lodges. Towels and gowns are clean and fluffy. The facilities in the lodges are very high spec, the sofas could do with being a bit larger to chill out on watch the TV but it's not really a criticism just a personal preference. The lodges are a comfortable luxury and we would definitely visit again.

Really disappointed that there wasn't a larger (half:half) fridge freezer in the Deben Premiere lodge, just a fridge with tiny freezer box. Lodges had bright automatic outside lights that were on all night and no thick curtains or blackout blinds meant couldn't get bedrooms dark enough for undisturbed sleep. Otherwise the lodge would have been absolutely perfect.

Lovely place and lovely holiday. As we were so lucky with the weather it would have been nice to have a parasol for when eating outside. Also some shelves in the bathroom would have been nice to put toiletries on. The bathrooms were lovely and large and could easily have accommodated a small free standing shelf unit. However all together a lovely, comfortable place in a lovely setting with a very well equipped and not to pricey shop on site. Hope to re-visit soon. Thanks

We were in the bungalow lodge or 'blodge' as the owners call it, although this in view of the shop until the Laurels mature we found this accommodation to be the best lodge yet in our three visits to Heathside and would definetly request this one again.

We had an amazing holiday the log cabin was lovelier than we could’ve expected and the staff and people in the local area were lovely. We will definitely be coming again.

As always absolutely fantastic.

The lodge was very clean. Well fitted with kitchen appliances and had a warm feeling. It was also warm. The location suited us as it was peaceful. Despite the weather (rain and more rain) the nature trail was well thought out and enjoyable to walk. The hot tub was the icing on the cake. The resident donkeys also brought a nice aspect to the site.

Great place- went with an 18 month old and a 5 year old. We stayed in a 3 bedroom Deben premier and it was very very spacious with high ceilings and well equipped. There was a small amount of kids cups and plates which was helpeful. Only one dishwasher tab though. A good amount of kitchen kit. Hot tub was fun, and it was lovely to be looking on to the fields. The kids playground bit was lovely and we enjoyed the small walk next to it. The shop had a good selection of food and drinks and other bits and bobs. Downsides- The beds were not comfy- like sleeping on a rock. I would suggest bringing a mattress topper. The heating is controlled by the office using WiFi- I wasn’t too keen on this system as we got cold in the night and couldn’t turn the heating on. Hot tub didn’t heat up until the next day. If people are using their hot tubs in the evening or are outside playing or eating you can hear them very clearly. Not the end of the world, but worth noting :)

There is everything you need in the lodge and the hot tub at night u dear the stars is wonderful. I would recommend a break here to anyone there was nothing to find fault with.

Fun Days Out near Heathside Lodges

about 9 Miles
Africa Alive is one of Suffolk's largest attractions and one of the most popular in the whole of the UK.  The Africa themed park is very unique and gives visitors the chance to see some amazing creatures in a habitat which is as close to nature as possible. The park can be explored by car and on foot and Hyenas and Giraffes are just some of the animals you will encounter as you make your way around the park. Watch out for the lightning fast Cheetahs and keep your eyes peeled to spot the more reclusive creatures. During a day at Africa Alive there will be plenty of shows and educational talks taking place and if the weather turns then the indoor Adventure Play Ground comes in very handy. The site also has a well stocked Gift Shop and a Discovery Centre.

Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park is an amazing 50 acres area of stunning coastal parkland and is packed with family friendly rides and attractions. This park is an excellent choice for families with children of varied ages as there are a number of small rides for the little ones as well as some adrenaline boosting white knuckle rides for teenagers. As well as rides the site hosts some fantastic shows including the ever popular Sea Lion and Parrot encounters. At Halloween, Christmas and Easter other themed shows can also be enjoyed.  The site also has a good range of places to eat and drink whether you are looking to spend a leisurely hour relaxing with a meal or just grab a quick snack.

This amazing owl sanctuary located in the Stowmarket area of Suffolk should be high on your list of places to visit in the area.  The attraction is also a registered charity and carries out important work in the care & rehabilitation of owls from the region.  The sanctuary also raises awareness of owl conservation throughout the UK.  Between April and the end of September there are two superb flying displays each day so you should try and make your visit coincide with one of these displays if you can.

This award winning wildlife attraction has much to offer both families and couples looking for a fun and educational day out.  You can discover a whole wild world of animals with over 1000 different animals from around the world. You will probably want to try and spend the whole day here so you don's miss out on anything.  Highlights include the amazing animals presentation, the birds of prey display and the feeding talks, all of which take place at set times of the day.  This attraction is fantastic value for money and highly recommended.  Their latest event is the Snow Leopard Club Naming Auction and there has recently been a baby giraffe born at the zoo.

Bewilderwood is a fun day out for the whole family located in the Wroxham area of Norfolk.  This imaginative adventure park has won awards and we think kids especially will love the characters and the magical tree houses. You can even book your ticket online and beat the queues by visiting their website where you can also view video clips of the park. This place is also the setting for the book 'A Boggle at BeWILDerwood', by local children's author Tom Blofeld.  Parents are not left out either as you're encouraged to take part and play alongside your children.

We love this attraction in Scoulton, Norfolk with a great collection of animals.  Children and adults alike have the chance to get hands on with the animals in the special handling areas.  On rainy days there is always the indoor play area for the little ones and when it's time for a bite to eat the cafe on the farm is open all day selling drinks and snacks.  Hot food is available over lunch times.

This fun family day out has been well planned and we think is certainly worth a visit.  New for 2010 is the PrimEvil at Dinosaur Adventure.  Other fun activities include the Dinosaur Trail, Arachnophobia, the Raptor Races and the adventure play area.  The secret animal garden is also popular.  You can play a role in wildlife conservation and sponsor an animal if you wish.  At the moment if you sign up for their newsletter there is a chance to win a family ticket.
