Description

Once a gamekeeper’s lodging, Keeper’s Cottage is now a beautiful, self-catering getaway for families and friends. Set in the woods, at the edge of its very own lake, - (not stocked for fishing)  the cottage has held on to all of the romance of its character. Watch the day come to life from your bedroom then take lazy strolls through the woods. Or take day trips to nearby Norwich or out the east coast beaches. For those of you who simply can’t tear yourselves away, enjoy a dip in the indoor swimming pool.

Live well, love much

Keeper’s Cottage is as cosy and romantic on the inside as it is on the outside. Through the front hall, the wood burner in the sitting room makes it a great place to lounge and warm up after a day outside. Through the bi-fold doors, step out onto the patio for an al fresco dinner with a view over the lake and garden. Then, glass in hand, watch the sun slowly disappear behind the trees.

Guests can also access the patio through the dining room, which has its own wood burner and a comfortable little reading corner. Through an archway on the opposite side of the dining room is the kitchen, with a breakfast bar and a view onto the woods.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

There is a wet room with WC on the ground floor, while the family bathroom and the three bedrooms are on the first floor, delightfully tucked under the eaves. The master suite and the twin room both enjoy views over the lake – the perfect way to start the day. The master suite also benefits from an en-suite bathroom with WC. Finally, a plush, chic bed, with modern soft greys and brown combine with a traditionally beamed ceiling to make the second king-size room singularly elegant.

Practicalities

We welcome two small or medium size dogs. Please note they must be kept on a lead at all times in the woods as the woods are a haven for wildlife. Included in your stay are a travel cot, high chair, stair gate and lockable bicycle storage. If you have young children within your group they will have to be supervised at all times in the garden as it sits directly next to the lake and the water is unfenced. They will also need to be supervised in the pool as there is no lifeguard. The pool is available every day between 10 am and 4 pm by mutual agreement, and nobody can use the pool area on their own. Please bring your own swimming towels. You are also welcome to visit the woodland using the marked trails only. Wellington boots are advised for walking in the woods.

Special Note: There is game shooting in the area in season from October to February annually.

Reviews

Just to let you know what a fabulous time we had staying at Keepers Cottage, Hemblington last weekend. The cottage is exceptionally well equipped, stylish, comfortable and was everything we could have hoped for and the owners hospitality was perfect. We will be back !!

David B,

This is a superb property along with its surroundings and location. The perfect (for us) place for a REAL holiday away from the stresses of life. The peace, quite, quality and hospitality are the things we dream of and rarely find - but now we have! Considered being less enthusiastic so that others don't find this gem, but could not deny others the opportunity to such a beautiful experience.

Mr Colin P,
