Property code: KT088

An elegant three-storey property offering spacious accommodation for up to 12 guests, located in the well-appointed seaside village of Thornham, just 1.5 miles to the sandy beach.

Holmhurst is a beautiful family home on the coast at Thornham. It lies within the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 4 miles east of Hunstanton. Built in the traditional style from local carrstone, the three-storey property has been extensively renovated. Holmhurst's unique selling points are its four bathrooms and underfloor heating, but you'll find many unique things, inside and out. From the light-flooded open-plan kitchen and dining room to the lounge's marble fire surround, the magnificent double beds, quirky artworks, mid-century furnishings and capacious grounds, Holmhurst is the epitome of luxury living.

15th century Thornham is separated from the sea by atmospheric marshes, which are a haven for wildlife. The village has three superb pubs, a deli, farm shop and yurt restaurant next door. You're only a mile from the beach, and half a mile from Thornham.

Hunstanton lies 3.5 miles to the west. Visit its Sea Life Sanctuary or let the kids loose in Rainbow Park. Explore Brancaster Bay's sublime beaches (3 miles) or enjoy a salty round of golf at the dramatic Royal West Norfolk Golf Club. Pristine beaches at Wells-next-the-Sea (12 miles) and Blakeney (17 miles) offer more unforgettable memories, in this little corner of paradise.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This was a well equipped house for 4 couples, 5 grandchildren ( one baby) and 3 dogs. The large garden was dog and child safe so they could be left to play football etc while grownups got supper. Even a pen for the dogs if they took over the football. Plenty of bathrooms and loos. Lovely safe bridlepath to the beach ( 1.25 miles ). Handy farm shop Read morebehind the house, the fish and chips were delicious and some gluten free. Hide

The most northerly county in the East of England, Norfolk is a land of beautiful contrasts. From the swooning reed beds and endless maze of waterways in the Norfolk Broads; the unspoilt stretches of fens and shingle spits where bird and wildlife thrive; a famous royal palace and the historic cathedral city of Norwich, this enticing area of England is just waiting to be discovered. Visit Sandringham Palace and see where the Queen lives or find out where lavender grows; you could journey to one of the largest seal haul outs in Europe at Blakeney Point or have a traditional day at the seaside at Cromer and Great Yarmouth. The cathedral gilded city of Norwich is a wonderful place to lose yourself either walking the ramparts of Norwich Castle or the RAF Air Defence Radar Museum. The city has an exceptional array of shops, cafes and restaurants to enjoy. Well connected to the national rail and road network, Norfolk is easily accessible from London, the M25 and from major city terminals.

Norfolk is characterised by its horizons and big skies, straight highways and rural trappings. Also, when it comes to attractions, visitors to the county will be spoilt for choice. If you love animals and birds, head to RSPB Titchwell Marsh, or the Cley-Next-The-Sea. With such a long coastline Norfolk boasts some magnificent stretches of beach – favourites include Cromer, Old Hunstanton, Wells-Next-The Sea, the dunes of Winterton-on-Sea, and Brancaster (a favourite for dog owners).

There are so many places to visit and activities to get involved in on a Norfolk holiday. We have some lovely properties including country cottages, farm conversions, large family houses, apartments and surburban home from homes in our collection. Why not find your perfect holiday home today?
