A scenic waterfront lodge in Norfolk has been named among the best places for a lakeside stay in the UK.

Lakeside Lodge in East Harling was included in a list by The Guardian which also featured Blyth Rise Stays in Suffolk.

The lodge offers a peaceful retreat on the edge of a lake with a view across the water.

The hand-built wooden lodge sleeps two guests and is a few minutes walk from the village centre as well as being close to Banham Zoo and Thetford Forest.

It was praised for being "compact but comfortable with a well-stocked kitchen" and visitors were suggested to bring hiking boots and bikes to explore the area.

Other places on the list included Lough Erne in Enniskillen and Liming Lodge in the Cotswold Water Park.
