Two former estate workers' cottages have been combined to create one spacious, airy detached cottage that is ideal for a relaxed holiday with family and friends. It is at the heart of the Blickling estate and is set in a large enclosed private garden making it popular with our visitors and their dogs.
Spend days exploring the numerous trails that crisscross this impressive estate, ideal for long dog walks, stopping off at the estates Muddy Boots' café for refreshments along the way. During the fishing season there is excellent, free, coarse fishing available on nearby Blickling lake. The cottage has two fires to curl up in front of but if you can drag yourself away round off an evening Blickling's traditional pub, The Buckinghamshire Arms, just minutes’ walk away.

The ancient kingdom of East Anglia has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions with attractions ranging from the University city of Cambridge and the Cathedral city of Ely, to glorious, often deserted, sandy beaches, lots of seaside fun, outdoor pursuits and the unspoilt waterways of The Broads. National Trust places in East Anglia are equally varied, ranging from the magnificent Blickling Hall in Norfolk, the impressive rotunda at Ickworth, near Bury St. Edmunds, the elegant Anglesey Abbey, to the dramatic coastline at Dunwich Heath, with its neighbouring RSPB sanctuary and the Anglo-Saxon royal burial site at Sutton Hoo.
