Poolside Lodges is a family run site of 3 single storey lodges located 5 miles from the heart of Norwich city and the Norfolk Broads, meaning we have the best of both worlds on our doorstep; the stunning architecture of the city with its wealth of heritage, high street brands and array of independent shops to the tranquillity and beauty of the National Park Norfolk Broads.

We have 3 lodges; Poolside (sleeps 4), Studio (sleeps 2) and Woodside (sleeps 4).  Our Studio and Woodside Lodges have the added luxury of hot tubs (all year round).  All guests share our outdoor heated pool (late May to end September), games room and gardens.  Lodges can be hired for weekend breaks, holidays and business visitors.  Our lodges can be hired individually, or we are ideally suited to group bookings of families and friends for holidays and special occasions.

We offer relaxed and welcoming accommodation with facilities of a larger site, at affordable prices.

Hi Simon, I would like thank you and share my recent experiences of the cruise you organised. Firstly, we had a wonderful time cruising up to the fjords on the Crown Princess. The ship was absolutely fantastic. The customer service was amongst the best we have ever experienced, the food was out of this world and the variety of things to do kept myself and my family thoroughly entertained. It was an excellent choice by yourself that this would be a worthwhile first time cruise. Most of all though I wanted to thank you for taking the time to research and investigate which would be the best cruise for my family to take. You used your vast cruising experience to identify our needs and you put our minds to rest with superb customer service. You walked us through every step of the booking process and always made yourself available regarding the many questions we had whether it was about the cruise, embarkation and disembarkation or what to do in Norway. The service you offered was just amazing and we would not only consider you first for future cruise bookings but also would highly recommend you to friends and family in the future. Thanks again for everything - Mr and Mrs Gyde

"Having always been sceptical about dealing with travel agents, it took some persuading to use All Things Holiday and Travel. My fears were totally unjustified – Simon asked what we wanted and was able to organise the whole thing.  At every stage, we were given realistic options, with all the relevant information. Once the details were decided, he gave us a time frame and throughout the process, by Email, or phone when necessary, kept me informed and explained what I had to do. We had a wonderful holiday with everything, from the parking, flights, transfers, hotel and the tours we’d booked, going like clockwork. I can honestly recommend All Things Holiday and Travel. The care and attention given to us made everything stress free – and all at a very competitive price. When I’m asked “would you recommend to friends and family” I’ll say 10 (where 1 equals least likely and 10 equals most likely)”  Martin Jones Norwich

"Reflecting on what was an entirely new experience for me, I realised that I might have had less enjoyment from the cruise had I not had the advantage of some expert advice from travel agent Simon Chapman. I wanted to visit the Baltic, but it was Simon who picked Celebrity Silhouette as the right vessel for the inclement weather you can experience even in June.It was Simon who recommended Aqua class - well worth the extra, not least for the marvellous dining experience in the Blue restaurant, with an attentive head water who quickly learned my preferences, and somehow always managed to get my husband and I a table by the large picture windows just a few feet from the sea. And it was Simon who provided knowledgeable advice on shore excursions in places I had never visited before - like St Petersburg, Tallinn and Riga. Five star service Simon" - Susan Grice

"We would like to say a massive thank you for the super cruise you organised for us. It was great to have a personal service from our travel organiser who made sure everything we needed was planned to perfection. The holiday was wonderful and all connections were smooth and faultless , thanks to your superb attention to detail. We would not hesitate to recommend your service to any of our friends who need holiday and booking advice". The Haines family, Norwich

Warm, encouraging and supportive, I’m a professional vocal coach and guitar teacher. With years of recording, touring and performing experience, I love sharing my skills and passion for music, offering singing and guitar lessons in Norwich, Norfolk, UK for all ages.

I can tailor the lesson for you in a fun, relaxed environment that also ensure you’re equipped with a range of techniques.

Vocal Coach

I can help you prepare for an upcoming audition or performance and learn various vocal techniques and exercises. You can also record your vocals and make quality demo recordings. I can also help you with your nerves, breathing and help build your confidence. In 2015 one of my talented vocal students, Breeze Redwine, won the Pre Teen Award at TeenStar, the UK’s biggest search for teenage and pre-teen singers at Birmingham’s NEC. She also achieved the highest score of the night from the prestigious industry judges and beautifully performed my song ‘Here Alone’

In 2016 she released her debut single called ‘Courage’ which I wrote for her.  The music video has had thousands of views on YouTube and is released on iTunes through Proper.

She also recently won many awards at the World Championships of Performing Arts, an international performing arts talent competition and educational experience held annually in Hollywood. Among her many achievements, Breeze won 4 Golds, 2 Silvers and Overall Champion twice. She also won an Industry Award, meaning she is most likely to make it in the music industry.  

“Lisa has been an amazing vocal coach to my daughter Breeze. She has been having lessons for over 2 years and worked wonders with Breeze’s confidence, performance, breath control and vocal ability. She’s guided her through difficult songs and different styles while being constantly supportive and encouraging as well as regularly sending exercises and backing tracks. She has provided invaluable guidance and support for when Breeze has had major auditions in London and across the UK and Breeze recently won the Pre Teen Award at the prestigious national Teen Star competition at Birmingham’s NEC. Lisa has also been teaching Breeze guitar and she is already on her way to playing lots of songs. Thank you Lisa. We couldn’t have done it without you.” Jackie Redwine

Guitar Lessons and Ukulele

My guitar and ukulele lessons are fun and enjoyable. Focussing on those beginning the guitar or those aiming to follow the singer/songwriter path like myself, I ensure lessons are built around your aims and can teach you your favourite songs and riffs so that you’ll learn quickly.

Singing and guitar lessons take place in my comfortable, fully equipped teaching room in the golden triangle area of Norwich, where on street parking permits are provided.

Flexible times, competitive prices.

To find out more please e-mail parrotrecords@gmail.com. I would love to hear from you and would be happy to help with any of your queries.

I’d love to hear from you and will be happy to help with any queries.

Testimonials

“Since having singing lessons with Lisa, I’ve noticed dramatic changes in my voice, for example I always used to sing from my throat and I’d run out of breath very, very quickly. Lisa has sent me vocal exercises and backing tracks to practise at home, which I find very useful in preparation for the next lesson. It’s a great hobby, and it’s something that I look forward to doing each fortnight, which is quite funny because I actually have a singing phobia, but Lisa’s teaching style puts me at ease. Ann Marie Harrison

 ”Lisa has really helped me with my vocals and given me so much more confidence with my singing. She has shown me some great vocal techniques which have really improved my singing.” Kate Yuill

“Before I started having singing sessions with Lisa, I didn’t feel confident anymore at my ability to sing. Since having the sessions with Lisa, she has helped me to gain my confidence back, she is friendly and approachable. She has shown me how to strengthen my breathing skills and support my core vocal ability and head voice. Sharing her vocal warm ups and techniques to attempt some challenging songs…Lisa is helping me to prepare for a big audition and thanks to Lisa the song I have chosen is broadening my vocal ability to a higher standard, Lisa is being patient and providing me with some really supportive feedback to progress further.” Rachael Francis

“My 10 year old daughter, Saskia, has been having guitar and singing lessons with Lisa. Within weeks of starting she went from not being able to play a thing to singing and playing many of her favourite songs.  Since then she has gone from strength to strength.  Lisa has been a real inspiration to Saskia.  She knows how to connect with children.  She’s vibrant and fun but at the same time nurturing and attentive.  It’s a real pleasure to hear my daughter perform.  Thanks Lisa.” Kerry Williams

“I have been attending vocal lessons with Lisa for about a year now, as a student at Access To Music I was looking for some extra support with my vocals. Lisa is honest, patient and understanding of my vocal needs. I have learnt what my voice is capable of, breathing technique’s and warm up exercise’s. All of these contribute to my new found confidence with regards to my singing. I would highly recommend Lisa for all your vocal needs.” Karl Moore
