STAY: The White Lodge, Great Yarmouth

A few days getaway to Great Yarmouth has become a tradition for me and my boyfriend, it's something we do every year. Last year, we discovered the White Lodge so we had to stay there again this year!

The White Lodge is away from the main hustle and bustle of Great Yarmouth but is still situated on the seafront, making it a perfect choice! There's plenty of street parking too, so you don't need to worry about that either. Last year, we stayed in two rooms over three nights and they were both done up to a high standard, a king size room with a garden view & a ground floor double.

Ground floor en-suite.

This year we had a seaview double which lived up to our expectations and more. It might be my favourite out of all three rooms we've stayed in. Double doors open to a view overlooking the old boating lake, with the beach and sea beyond that.

I definitely have my eye on the superking seaview room for next year's trip!

Breakfast is ordered the night before and there's more choice than a full english here! Eggs on toast, smoked haddock and kippers are all available and you can help yourself to toast, fruit and yoghurts.

I can't write this post without mentioning the fab owners, Jean and Eddie, who clearly work very hard to make sure each stay is as perfect as can be. The star of the show is definitely George, you cannot help but fall in love with The White Lodge's resident staffy. The amount of tripadvisor reviews that mention him are testament to that!

The rooms range from £60 to £90 including breakfast.

Over the course of our stay, we stopped for lunch at Flutterbie's tea room. They serve homemade cakes, as well as cream tea and afternoon tea. Toasties, sandwiches and paninis are available too. we both went for bacon and brie paninis to go with our white hot chocolates.

Our usual stop on our first night every year, is HMS Hinchinbrook. A fish & chips restaurant with more choice than your usual takeaway! Tuna steaks, lemon sole, calamari as well as steaks and burgers. A definite must eat place in Yarmouth, especially if you're only visiting for the day.

A new place for us to try was OG Burger kitchen, which is where the old Olive garden used to be. It's still owned by the same people I believe, with the original Olive Garden relocating to Gorleston. I really like what they've done with the menu as you get to choose your bun, patty, preferred burger topping and a side. I don't know how they cook their fries but they were amazing!

Free rock with the bill! 

I know Great Yarmouth isn't everyone's cup of tea but where you choose to stay definitely makes a difference. If you're after a more relaxing time, The White Lodge is a perfect choice. It's in the north part of Yarmouth, about a fifteen to twenty minute walk to Britannia Pier, which is where it tends to get busier.
