Property code: OC-1468

Indulge in a romantic retreat with your special someone at this lovely single-story conversion of the Old Forge, nestled in Blofield Heath in the middle of the scenic Broads. Sleeping two people in one cosy bedroom, this is a perfect accommodation option for couples in search of a romantic bolthole for two that’s surrounded by beautiful farmland. During the day, go for a stroll hand in hand at Brundall Gardens. Stop off to admire the well-kept flower gardens and enjoy a picnic lunch. In the evening, come home to cottage’s tranquil patio, crack open a bottle of something cool and crisp, and spend a fun evening BBQ-ing together.

Step inside and you’ll be welcomed by the stylish and well-lit open-plan sitting area/kitchen/diner. Slip onto the sofa in the area and take a moment to make yourself at home before heading to the sleek and stylish kitchen area to rustle up a romantic meal for two to enjoy at the cosy dining table. Alternatively, head out to the enclosed patio, fire up the BBQ and dine alfresco while admiring the unlimited farmland views. After dinner, enjoy a glass of wine while you watch the stars come out, or head back to the sitting area to catch up on your favourite TV shows. As night sets in, retire to the chic bedroom for the night.

Head to the vibrant city of Norwich (9 miles) to explore the cathedral, stroll through the cobblestone streets of Elm Hill, and browse the unique independent boutiques of Norwich Lanes. Alternatively, discover the lovely Fairhaven Water Garden (3.5 miles), which is located on the banks of South Walsham Inner Broad. Wander along winding paths, cross the pretty bridges and be amazed by the garden’s spectacular floral displays.

The cottage we stayed in was very comfortable and extremely well equipped, stunning views from the back decked area. Would highly recommend this holiday home.
