Immerse yourself in a blissful getaway with your loved ones at this single-story conversion of the Old Forge in Blofield Heath. Sleeping four people across two bedrooms, it is ideal for small families or groups of friends who want to explore the gentle waterways and peaceful countryside of the Norfolk Broads together. Spend the day bird-watching at RSPB Strumpshaw Fen or seal-spotting from Horsey Gap. In the evening, come home to the cottage's patio, crack open a bottle of something cool and crisp, and relax with your loved ones while the stars come out.

Step inside and soak up the home-away-from-home ambience of this cottage’s open-plan living/kitchen/dining area. Make yourself at home in the living room before heading to the sleek and stylish kitchen to prepare a meal for your loved ones. Host a sociable dinner at the stylish dining table or head out to the enclosed patio, fire up the BBQ and dine alfresco. After dinner, enjoy the evening air on the patio, or head to the living area to relax in front of your favourite TV show. When it’s time for bed, there are two beautifully-designed bedrooms to choose from.

Head to Wroxham Barns (8 miles), to visit the craft studios, observe experienced artists at work, meet the farm animals and treat yourself to some homemade ice cream. Alternatively, discover the amazing history of the iconic windmill at Stracey Arms Mill (8 miles). Climb to the top for spectacular views of the Norfolk Broads, and remember to take some memorable photos for the family album. Or head into the city of Norwich (7 miles) to stroll through cobbled streets and find a bargain or two at the bustling outdoor market.
