    A nice area the house was comfortable and a good place to stay. the cooker door needs fixing, could do with a clothes rail in the bedroom perhaps by removing the sofa. the garden furniture could do with cleaning/painting ignore the dogs next door and you will have a good holiday

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry to hear you’re not happy with everything, we take commitments very seriously. As the rooms have sloping ceilings we felt a wardrobe would take up too much room & put up hooks with coat hangers instead. The furniture although faded is still functional & will be repainted also the oven door will be fixed. The dogs next door are securely contained & are unfortunately beyond our control.

    We had a very enjoyable break while staying at Blacksmiths Cottage, this was a good base for visiting the local seaside towns of Gorlston, great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, also close to many broadland areas including Oulton broad. The cottage still has many original features and is furnished in quite an olde worlde style , but has a modern well equipped kitchen, double glazing and modern doors. The village has a pub/restaurant and a café but no shop. There are some local lakes which provide a nice area to take walks in, with an area in which dogs are allowed to run free. Probably the best thing about our holiday there was the peace and quiet, in stark contrast to our every day lives living on a busy road with noisy neighbours

    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.
