Description

Boasting a private tennis court and lots of character and charm, Blacksmith’s Cottage is the perfect base for exploring the area.

Originally a Blacksmiths forge which served the horses at the manor house and the surrounding area, there are still 16 award winning stables on site, although there are no longer horses there. The manor house and the forge were originally part of the Holkham Estate, owned by the Earls of Leicester and were both built in the 17th-century. Converted with love and care by the owners to maintain the character but providing everything needed for a perfect stay, this is a great base for discerning guests wishing to relax and unwind and those wishing to explore on foot, cycle or by car alike. In fact, as well as good road links, the properties boasts wonderful walks and cycle routes right from the front door. Oozing charm, this stunning and beautiful holiday cottage will provide the warmest welcome and guests are sure to return.
Lying just 15 miles from the magnificent North Norfolk coastline, this property is ideal for exploring the sandy beaches, RSPB nature reserves, coastal paths and pretty villages, many of them having gastro pubs. Nestled within the owner’s landscaped grounds and standing detached, Blacksmiths Cottage has its own enclosed wall, manicured lawned garden, for perfect peace and quiet, and the property has an outdoor hard tennis court.

    We were greeted with a generous and well thought out welcome basket and it was immediately obvious that the cottage had been prepared to an exceptionally high standard. Blacksmiths Cottage is in a good location to access the delightful north Norfolk coast along quiet roads through some lovely villages. The cottage is easy to reach from the main road and has an excellent farm shop nearby, it is quiet and private and exudes a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere, a place where it is good to come back to at the end of the day. The owners who offer every help on arrival are friendly and charming. We had a lovely sunny week, eat a lot of superb seafood and would certainly like to repeat the experience.
