Norway Lodge, Dorchester, Dorset
Norway Lodge is one of two secluded lodges on this lovely site. Private and welcoming, they boast beautiful views over the Dorset Gap and surrounding rural countryside.
Situated in the charming village of Ansty, the lodges artfully combine state of the art amenities with the romantic ambience of a rustic log cabin. They are even surrounded by pine trees, which ensure privacy as well as lending the site a delightfully Scandinavian feel.
Norway Lodge accommodation
The lodge has two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is a twin that can be made into a double on request. The main bathroom has a bath and WC.
The open plan living area is cosy and welcoming. Boasting a traditional wood burner, it is a comfortable haven on chillier evenings. It also boasts a TV, DVD player and iPod dock, which ensures that guests have plenty of entertainment, whatever the weather.
The lodge has a verandah with chairs and a BBQ, with steps down to an open lawned area. The views are simply spectacular, and it’s an idyllic spot for a couple of drinks on a balmy summer’s evening. Perhaps best of all is the fabulous hot tub. Adding that special touch of luxury to the property, it also means that guests can enjoy the outdoors even on cooler evenings.
