This cosy semi-detached cottage has lots of character and is in a lovely setting in the tiny Norfolk hamlet of Itteringham Common on the 4500 acre Blickling estate. The enclosed garden, with paved seating area leads through a gate to a private stretch of riverbank alongside the meandering River Bure, the perfect place for a spot of fishing or evening drinks.
It is ideal for a relaxing break with a quiet country lane leading to the well-stocked Itteringham village shop and popular pub. There are excellent walks through the ancient Great Wood leading to the impressive Jacobean house at the heart of the Blickling estate and the extensive surrounding parkland. Stop off at the estates Muddy Boots' café for refreshments along the way before returning home to relax in front of the log burner.

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.
