Shop: 0.5 miles Pub: 2 miles Smithy Cottage is open plan and all on one level with very comfortable seating area. The kitchen is totally fully equipped including breakfast bar. The bedroom has a King size bed with a en-suite relaxing Jacuzzi Spa Bath. Free Wi-Fi and DVD available. All you could possibly wish for and more. 'A real home from home.' Set in the heart of the Norfolk Broads eight miles from the fine, historic city of Norwich and a short drive to the sandy beaches of the East Coast, Blofield Heath is an excellent location for exploring the many attractions of Norfolk or simply relaxing in the peaceful countryside. The area around Blofield offers quiet lanes for walking and cycling. There are plenty of traditional country pubs with restaurants within convenient driving distance. Salhouse, Brundall, and South Walsham Broads are nearby where you can launch or hire a boat, with the RSPB reserve at Strumpshaw Fen providing a delight for walkers and nature lovers. The cathedral city of Norwich with its cobbled streets, timber-framed houses, bustling outdoor market, theatres and shops provides further interest and entertainment. 'A little bit of heaven just outside Norwich.' More
