Holmhurst is a beautiful family home on the coast at Thornham. The house is a 3 storey traditional carrstone property which has been extensively renovated to include the addition of 4 bathrooms and underfloor heating. The property has been finished to a high standard and comfortably furnished to provide a stylish yet practical home for family and friends at all times of the year. Set on the edge of the village the house is next door to the Orchard Drove Farm shop with PYO fruit on site. The now very popular Yurt restaurant is also next door and a 5-10 minutes walk takes you to Thornham's village deli, award winning Orange Tree pub and other places to eat. There is also the great advantage of a safe and easy walk (or bicycle) along the nearby footpath to the glorious sandy beach, which takes about 20 minutes..

The house accommodates 12 people. Out of the peak periods it may be rented for 8 using 4 bedrooms- locking the 2nd floor rooms at a reduced price - saving from £270 to £500. Please ask for details and prices.
Please note that towels are not provided for short breaks.

Reviews and Special Offers


Many thanks for all the information you sent which was informative and useful. We did use Kim's Kitchen for a catered meal which worked very well. Holmhurst suited our needs very well, the number of rooms and bathrooms and the child friendly garden and supply of indoor and outdoor toys. The location also was very good. We obviously forgot to order the weather we needed to enjoy the area to the full but we enjoyed our visit!

We had a brilliant Christmas. Kett and the owner were excellent. Big thank you to you all.

Accurate description of the property. Very easy to pay and very clear about what to expect. The house was even better in real life than the photos which is rare. Thank you we all had a wonderful time. Would definitely stay at Holmhurst again and book through Kett Cottages.

We had a wonderful time. The location of the property with it's almost private walk to the beach was perfect. We had three families and pets and Holmhust was ideal for our needs. My wife is already planning another holiday as she was so taken with the place.
