About Toad Hall Lodges
If you want to get close to nature but think the experience would be improved with access to your own private, heated shower room and a very comfortable bed, then Toad Hall Lodges may be the place for you.
Whether it’s for a short weekend or longer break, stay in one of our five chic but cosy timber lodges and you’ll discover some of Suffolk’s best-kept secrets on your doorstep.
You’ll get a sense of how special this area is as soon as you set off to walk, run or cycle through the nature reserve at the end of our road, past the hen reed beds, and along the ever-changing estuary, spotting water voles, otters, herons and little egrets along the way. When you reach the bridge, you can either turn left for Southwold or take a right for Walberswick.
You’ll find us nestled within Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty so this really is a perfect place to escape, relax and get back to nature. From Toad Hall Lodges, you’re within easy reach of all the area’s best forest walks, nature reserves and cycle trails as well as its long coastline of sand and shingle beaches. There are pretty market towns too, and ancient villages. All to be explored under vast, wide-open Suffolk skies that seem to stretch on for days.
If you’re back in time, you can watch the sunset over secluded farmland from your deck. Or stretch out your evening playing board games and toasting marshmallows over the fire pit. There’s barely any light pollution around here so you can watch a galaxy of stars light up the sky, before falling asleep listening to the sound of owls gently hooting. The Suffolk coastline is the first part of the UK to see a new day dawn so it’s worth setting your alarm and getting out of bed in time to see the sunrise. Maybe.
Forget childhood memories of wrestling with flimsy tents flapping in the rain, things have moved on. Toad Hall has five cosy, hand-built timber lodges for you to come home to – three with king-sized beds, two with a couple of singles. All with high-end memory foam mattresses, comfortable pillows and the warmest feather-filled duvets.
