Attractions include Somerleyton Hall and Gardens, Fritton Lake Country Park, Great Yarmouth for family fun, Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park, which the children will love, as well as Africa Alive and BeWILDerwood, a treetop adventure park. A short drive will take you to the Suffolk Heritage Coast and Southwold, home to Adnams brewery and famous for its pier and beach huts. The North Norfolk Coast with its harbours, market towns and famous seafood restaurants is also within easy reach, as is the glorious Norfolk Broads, where you can hire a boat or just watch the waterborne world go by. The medieval city of Norwich with its cathedral, castle, fine shops, restaurants and museums is well worth a visit. Beach 2 miles. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    Beautiful little cottage. It felt like home very quickly. It was lovely and warm even in mid February. We had relatives come and visit us there and the cottage had everything we needed to entertain them. The beach is only a few minutes away in one direction and the Broads a few minutes in the other. Over all I would say it’s a perfect little place to base your break from or simply to relax in. We would recommend Blacksmiths Cottage and we would happily book again ourselves.

    Quirky, cosy cottage perfect for a short getaway over New Year. The wood burner was lovely and the Xmas decs made it really festive. Heavy rain meant the track to the cottage was full of large puddles and although there was parking outside the cottage this was hard to access as cars parked opposite.

    Within easy reach of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft but especially loved the doggy friendly beach at Gorleston on Sea. Also great days out in Aldeburgh and Southwold.

    Cottage is well located to visit sea-side resorts and country-side attractions. We visited Great Yarmouth, Southwold, Dunwich, Oulton BrOad and Framlingham Castle during our stay. The village has a nice pub and a cafe but no shop.

    Good location near to Lowestoft. Cottage was dirty in places and in need of a professional clean and repaint. We spent time cleaning in first 1.5 days to make some areas better. Several saucepans were rusty and unuseable. Dishwasher was dirty with grime/smelly and we didn't use it. Cigarette butts in garden around table. Pictures were taken off walls and only nails showing. Owner was unhelpful and defensive whilst agent saw our photos and refunded commission.

    Lound is a lovely village, between Lowestoft & Great Yarmouth. The village pub is quite smart but welcoming & the food is of a very high standard, however for wholesome meals at a better price venture 2 miles up the road to the pub at Blundeston. The village also has a café, although this does not open until 9:30am. There are a number of "off road" tracks for dog walkers to explore, although you will probably have to venture onto the road for some of the time. There is a large Tesco on the outskirts of Lowestoft & a small Co-Op at the fuel station at the next roundabout in the opposite direction. The cottage has 2 bedrooms with adequate drawers for a short break but no real hanging space. The upstairs rooms are a little on the warm side in the summer heat. We only used the double bedroom & had the bedroom windows open as wide as we could all night. The downstairs layout is not particularly convenient, with the dining room at the back of the property & the kitchen at the front to the side of the sitting room & the crockery & cutlery in a dresser in the small section of hallway prior to the dining room. The door to the garden is at the rear of the property & the garden is small with a concrete walkway in front of it over which the next door neighbours (who are very nice) have access. The cottage is perfectly comfortable, but the layout did not really work for us & I think that had we brought the 2 dogs (which would be permitted) we would have struggled. I would suggest that the property is only really suitable for one dog, unless, perhaps, the 2 are very small. There is one parking space immediately in front of the front door to the cottage but it can be difficult to manoeuvre out of as neighbours park on the roadway opposite. Manoeuvring would probably be easier with a smaller car. We had a lovely, relaxing holiday & found the location convenient for exploring north Suffolk & Norfolk. People in the village were very friendly & most local walks involved a chat with someone at some stage. East Anglia is a very "dog friendly" region & there seem to be few pubs in which dogs are not welcome. We were highly amused at the "dog cones" advertised at the ice cream stall in Lowestoft & a pub in Great Yarmouth which offered a special "doggy menu" of 2 sausages with gravy!
