    Great little place for a few nights stay. Lovely little coffee shop up the road with mud kitchen to entertain children. Parking a little tricky if more than one car but not a major negative. Would stay here again.

    The cottage might be old but the bathroom and kitchen are tired and dated. The whole place could do with a spruce up as the area it self was lovely

    Comfortable and warm, but rather gloomy. The garden was overgrown and unwelcoming and bordered a very busy road. Parking was very difficult with room for only two cars for two cottages and access from a very busy road on a bend.

    We were pleasantly surprised with this cottage. The location is great and the village interesting. A lovely shop that literally does sell lovely things nearby and the local pub does good food. The owners were friendly and helpful. The cottage and garden were a little tired and unkempt in places. There were lots of nice touches, but the shabby stair carpet and rubber mats just inside the door give a poor first impression. As do the old duvet cover in the double bedroom and the vintage ‘Noddy’ curtain in the bathroom. ( A clean small blind would have been so much nicer. ) Generally, people who consider renting holiday cottages expect the accommodation to be at least comparable to their own houses - it was just ok.

    We booked this a month before we were due to go so not much choice. Our location was more important. The cottage is not your modern new build but the charm and feel for this 300 year old property is evident as soon as you walk through the door. The kitchen is fully equipped and had everything we needed . Gardens attached are beautiful and views over the village are wonderful. The owners are really lovely and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay. Only negative thing I could mention is cost of taking your dog maybe should be included in price like most rentals and possibly and include dog bed and blankets , which again have been provided at other rentals. All in all we had a wonder Easter staying at Blacksmiths and would definitely go back in future, location for us is brilliant and can’t wait to see the finished Smithy!

    Lovely comfy and clean cottage. Before we went I called for information about getting the cottage key and the man I spoke to (presumably the owner) was very nice and told me lots about the area, where to walk and which pubs were good, which was very helpful. We were a group of 6 adults and there was plenty of space for all of us. The cottage was very homely and the kitchen was very well equipped. The location is great for walking and exploring the coast, and there is a pub within walking distance which serves good food. There is also a good village shop nearby. Overall a great cottage.

    Homely cottage with very nice village shop/cafe just a few yards away. Excellent village pub is also within easy walking distance and the coastal path which goes either to Wells next or Sea or to Morston and Blakeney in the other direction is also easily reached on foot.

    Great cottage and very helpful and friendly owner, would definitely stay again. The village is lovely and the village shop is a gem! Great base for walking and twitching on the marshes. Also the pub does amazing lobster.
