Details

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 excellent beaches of the Norfolk coast and popular coastal towns of Cromer and Sheringham are a 20 minute drive. If you are looking for other ways to entertain your family during your stay we run events and activities at many of our Norfolk properties throughout the year.

East Anglia, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire

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.

    Particularly enjoyed...

    Easy walking access to Blickling estate and the Itteringham village shop. The reception staff at the Blickling hall was very friendly and the lady in the entrance office to the garden. On our visit the walled garden was not developed and we had a job finding it with little signing. The cottage is a gem for location and great dog walks. Norfolk cottages are fully booked as a rule when dog owners seek secure gardens and great on the door step walks. If the garden was fully enclosed and safe I feel that both these cottages including the neighbouring Meadowside would be booked throughout the year.

    Fantastic festive break

    The cottage was beautifully appointed and made all the more special that we could easily walk into the estate. It was a fantastic festive relaxing break.

    Relaxing, cosy cottage

    A very relaxing and quite cosy cottage, away from it all with easy access to The Blickling Hall Estate. An excellent no hassle service from start to finish including the log burner ready to go and a few essentials in the fridge. We were there in the winter so did not make use of the garden but the cottage was warm and well equipped with good wi-fi and television reception. It was exactly like the brochure and we knew what we were getting.

    Made enjoyable....

    Since last staying in this property, the fence surrounding the garden has been improved to be dog/child proof. Knowing the dog can be let out off the lead and not escape makes the holiday much more relaxing. Also pleased that there was plenty of empty cupboard space in the kitchen for food - all too often every cupboard is filled with superfluous baking tins, etc.
