Property Description

Enjoying over 100ft of water frontage, with a private mooring and slipway, Gunton Lodge is one of the premier detached period houses built along Oulton Broad. A large sunny south-facing garden leads to the water’s edge, accessing a wealth of family watersports activity on the enclosed waters of the broad. A rowing boat can be made available for guests’ use by prior arrangement. Alternatively, simply relax and enjoy stunning views across the broad and surrounding countryside from the house, the lawn or the summer house by the water’s edge. The master bedroom has French doors leading onto a large decked balcony with stair access up to the turret room – a fabulous spot for enjoying the often spectacular sunsets! Oulton Broad is a haven for wildlife and water sports such as fishing (seasonal, licensed), sailing (RYA training centre), windsurfing and rowing. Numerous footpaths rich with wildlife and scenic cycle rides can be accessed from the house. A short boat ride across or short walk around the broad leads to the charming village of Oulton Broad with its waterside cafes, shops, restaurants, bars and park with a well-equipped children’s play area and tennis courts. Or go upriver in a day boat and discover charming waterside pubs and restaurants and pretty broads villages, such as Beccles, St Olaves and Somerleyton. The popular Blue Flag beaches of Lowestoft and Gorleston are close by, and further afield, picturesque drives lead into the Suffolk and Norfolk countryside with its many excellent gastro pubs, and to the Suffolk Heritage Coast including Southwold, Walberswick and Aldeburgh. Nearby stately home and gardens at Somerleyton also make an enjoyable day out. Shops 500 yards, pub and restaurant ¾ mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Immaculate house, perfect location. April 2012.
  2. A well maintained and spacious property with character and excellent decor. Ideal for our family get together and close to lots of broads leisure activities. Jan 2012.
  3. A fantastic break. Superb location, everything provided even down to the lifejackets for the dinghy! Clean, convenient, lovely house in a beautiful location, it made for a truly memorable family break. Nov 2011.
  4. We could not fault Gunton Lodge. The photographs almost don’t do it enough justice. The garden was just wonderful for two small children in our party. As someone else commented, if this was my house I would be living there all the time and would not rent it out! Would definitely return. Sept 2011.
  5. Very enjoyable; lovely to have The Broads at the end of the garden. Maybe a little more suburban than expected from the description (maybe my misunderstanding), but still very pleasant and did not feel overlooked by neighbours. Sept 2011.
  6. Beautiful house with amazing garden and great having the broad and boat to explore it. It is a lovely setting and great for a big group with children. Sitting at the summer house having a BBQ looking at the yachts go by was lovely. May 2011.
  7. Gunton lodge was beautiful! Wonderful house with absolutely everything that you could possibly need! If I owned it there is no way I would ever rent it out!! March 2011.
  8. Beautifully decorated, very spacious, couldn’t fault it at all! Oct 2010.
