About Blacksmith's CottageA traditional thatched cottage set on the Blicking estate, just minutes from lake side walks.
Blacksmith’s Cottage is one of the few remaining thatched dwellings on the Blickling Estate. This light and airy, spacious holiday cottage was once the home of an estate worker and retains a very traditional feel inside and out.
Make the most of your location nearby Blickling Hall and discover this fascinating property and surrounding parkland. Stop for a coffee at the estate's Muddy Boots' café before heading to the local pub for lunch.
Discover the sandy beaches and cliff top paths of the Norfolk coast, just a 20 minute drive from the cottage. A little further afield, the stunning, Blakeney National Nature Reserve, with its sand and salt marshes, is a 20 mile drive.
