Property code: KT015

A 400-year-old brick cottage offering period-style accommodation for four guests, located in the coastal village of Snettisham on Norfolk’s north-west coast, just 5-miles from Hunstanton.

Blackbird Cottage is a 400-year-old, traditional brick and carrstone cottage full of charm and character, situated in a quiet road close to the market square in the heart of the village of Snettisham. As well as traditional charm, it boasts many period features, and has an attractive mature garden with patio and outdoor furniture: perfect for relaxing in the evening with a glass of wine. The kitchen/diner is spacious and complete with wooden table to enjoy a family meal.

The cottage is in an enviable location meaning it is close to good walks, beaches (Heacham and Hunstanton 3 and 4 and a half miles respectively) and good food - the village boasts an award-winning pub, the Rose & Crown – mere steps from your front door and a local supermarket is less than a minute away ensuring you have all the essentials.

For a day out why not take a trip to Burnham Overy Staithe (14 miles), climb the sand dunes and enjoy the view. This is a particularly popular spot for boats. Take a ferry across to Scolt Head Island Nature Reserve in the summer months to experience expanses of sand and an abundance of wildlife. There is really something for everyone.

Nice little cottage in a lovely little village handy for eating out and public transport if needed. Nice private garden but the trees need attention to enable more use of the garden.

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.

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.

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.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
