Cottage is convenient to walk into Holt where there are plenty of shops and places to eat, although it is directly opposite a school so subject to traffic noise in the mornings. The second bedroom is very small and so cottage is really only suitable for 2 adults and maybe one other person/child. Well equipped kitchen including washing machine, dishRead morewasher & microwave. The garden is dog friendly and our cockapoo enjoyed his stay. Hide

Blackbird Cottage is well equipped and maintained. We always stay in the Autumn so never have chance to use the garden to to it's full potential, but the bonus is we get to use the log burner instead, fair swop.

Blackbird Cottage is a homely and characterful place to stay, and the pretty garden is not overlooked by the neighbours. Probably the best holiday home we have rented in North Norfolk.

As an ageing couple with grown up children (who both visited us during the week) the location of this cottage was perfect, with an easy walk to the town and simple access to the coast. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable, and having wall-to-wall sunshine was a bonus!

Lovely cottage, probably one of the best we've stayed in. Very clean on arrival and very very comfortable for our weeks stay. Hone from home! Great location, very peaceful and within easy walking distance of shop and the village centre and a short drive to the coast. All in all brilliant and will in all likelihood return at some point.

What a wonderful place to stay! Black bird cottage was extremely comfortable and homely, so cosy. It didn't feel like a holiday let. Myself, hubby & 16 month old had a very relaxing week.
