Beautiful cottage with a lovely country -cottage style garden set in a picturesque, traditional village. Although there is beach a mile or so away, you need to drive to it and we couldnt find away to access it. Hunstanton is close by though and easy to reach. Also A149 coast road close by to visit beautiful north coast.

A traditional cottage located in a quiet, pretty village. Very comfortable beds with nice fluffy towels and an adequate shower over bath. Comfortable garden furniture provided to allow you to enjoy the pretty cottage garden. All the basic equipment provided in the cosy kitchen diner. A very relaxing holiday base.

The location of the cottage is perfect for exploring the North Norfolk area, with a superb local bus service. The bedrooms were well proportioned with comfortable beds and clean fresh linen.

A quaint little cottage in a lovely village. Rose and Crown just round the corner provides excellent food and local farm shops are well worth a visit. Surrounding coast line, RSPB reserves and countryside made for a memorable holiday.

Lovely cottage in a nice village. Pretty secluded garden. Very quiet and comfortable. As stated a bit dated with furnishings. Also would be nice to have a few basic condiments. Good WiFi. But poor phone signal in area. Tv signal apparently also poor though we had no problem. Enjoyed our stay but would have been better with a few extras.

The comfort/cleanliness/equipment of the cottage were excellent. However, we felt that telling potential guests that the nearest beach is a walk of approximately 1 to 1.5 miles away would help to ascertain you are in the right situation for you.

The cottage was lovely. We were lucky enough to be here for lockdown. It was very cosy, comfortable, and has a special atmosphere. A sweet garden with an apple tree, a homey kitchen with everything you need, and a cosy sitting room. It is close to a beautiful walk through the woods, a 1 - 1.5 hour walk from a beach, and near lots of amazing beachesRead more by car. The local pub the Rose and Crown does the most delicious food!

A great little cottage in the quiet town of Snettisham. We had a cold and stormy week in October but stayed warm and cosy. The cottage was well equipped and spotlessly clean. We slept well in this peaceful location which is great for a "chill out" vacation.

Brilliant location and a beautiful cottage full of character. We did spend quite a bit of time relaxing in the property and felt quite at home. Well-equipped kitchen, comfortable living space, good shower (bit awkward if you are tall, but we managed), beautiful garden, always managed to park outside - Blackbird Cottage had everything we needed!

The cottage is old but very clean and has a charm about it. It is in a great place , easy for travel in all directions. There is street parking but there are usually spaces available. Lovely white linen and nicely laundered towels . There is a nice, small garden but a little overgrown.
