Once the blacksmiths and set in the grounds of Snettisham House, this charming Grade II listed semi-detached cottage has been transformed in to a superb holiday home, offering peaceful and very comfortable accommodation in rural surroundings. Ideal for exploring the Norfolk countryside and coastline. Many of the original features have been retained and it has been furnished in accordance with its character. The cottage is tucked away, outside the village and is perfect for that romantic break or just somewhere to escape!

Snettisham village itself is just a minutes’ drive although there are some beautiful country walks and lanes close by which will take you in to the village, which has several small shops, post office, pubs with restaurants, bistro, garden centre with coffee cafe and a craft centre with tea shop. Park Farm is a five minute walk away with its deer park, farm animals, tractor tours, cafe, children’s play area and shop. Riding lessons also available from here.

The property has oil central heating and comprises: entrance in to large lounge and dining area with a feature fireplace and wood burning stove. (Wood supplied), beamed ceiling. Open staircase from the lounge. Fitted kitchen. Off the kitchen a large feature shower room with wc and washbasin. Conservatory overlooking the south facing garden and extensive rural views. Secluded garden. Ample parking.

From the open wooden stair case is a small galleried landing and bathroom with bath (shower attachment), washbasin and wc. Then up a few steps to a small landing with two bedrooms. One with double bed and the other having twins (please note sloping ceilings.)

TESTIMONIALS;

Mr S Y (6-13.4.2012) Thank you for a most enjoyable holiday at ‘The Smithy’, Snettisham. This truly is one of the most imaginative cottages I have ever rented, and in the most relaxing setting. Please send my regards to the owners.

Mr & Mrs D. (9 – 16.6.2012) Promised to return after such a lovely winter break last year and here we are! Best thing we enjoyed is the conservatory, the lake, sheep, deer and the many different birds. A lovely treat to see the resident barn owls – absolute magic! We will be back again!

Mr & Mrs N R. ( 16 – 23.6.2012) another great week – we really enjoyed the wildlife and peace and quiet. Good to see the barn owls again!

Mr & Mrs S & family (from Maidstone 25.8-1.9.2012) Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. We really enjoyed our stay and were sad to go! The children enjoyed seeing all the wildlife that visited the garden and got to see the Barn Owl. This was our first visit to North Norfolk Coast and we will be back next year sometime! Thanks for making our stay so comfortable in the cottage – we had all that we needed!

Mr & Mrs P (14-21.7.2012) Another great stay! So many birds to watch from the conservatory – even had the woodpecker on the nut feeder and hedgehog in the evenings, so priorities are to feed the wildlife. Thanks once again!
