  • A traditional cottage situated in a peaceful North Norfolk village
  • An ideal for exploring both the coast and countryside with nearby nature reserves at Blakeney, Cley and Scolt Head
  • This is a perfect rural getaway for a couple or small family
Property code: NCC34

Set in a picturesque village in the beautiful Glaven valley, this traditional cottage offers cosy accommodation for a couple or small family looking to enjoy a peaceful retreat in the heart of Norfolk.

A thoughtfully updated traditional end-of-terrace cottage, this property is a delightful place to enjoy a break as a couple or small family. Unusually for a cottage this size, both bedrooms benefit from en-suite facilities, one with a shower room and the other a bathroom. The living area, meanwhile, is an attractive open-plan space, making it a sociable place to simply enjoy spending time together.

Sitting in the picturesque valley of the River Glaven, the village of Thornage is a peaceful spot in rural North Norfolk. The area immediately surrounding the cottage is ideal for those who want to spend some time enjoying the simple pleasures of leisurely country walks and cycle rides, perhaps heading over to the neighbouring village of Letheringsett, 2.5 miles away, where there is a charming historic pub as well as Norfolk’s only remaining flour-producing mill.

Whether you fancy spending some quiet time in the countryside or want to enjoy a day or two at the beach, both of these are easily possible for guests staying at this cottage. A 7-mile drive from this cottage, the coastal nature reserve at Blakeney not only offers beautiful scenery but is also home to an abundance of wildlife including a colony of grey seals. Boat trips around the reserve run from the quay in Blakeney village, whilst from the town of Wells-next-the-Sea (11 miles) boats take visitors out around the pretty harbour and the neighbouring salt marshes.

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

We had a great break at the cottage. It is very cozy, everything we needed was there, and we were very comfortable. Lovely location close to Holt and the wonderful North Norfolk Coast.

Had the most wonderful holiday with my two young granddaughters. Overall, the cottage was well furnished, the bedrooms were very clean and comfortable and the ensuite bathrooms a real plus. The kitchen had everything one could need. Location wise, there was much to see within a short distance. We also found a couple of pleasant walks nearby.

This is a lovely little cottage. Great value for money not too far from the beach.

A lovely little cottage. We loved our stay and felt right at home in the cosy environment. Loved having the outdoor area and enjoyed an evening BBQ. There isn't much in Thornage so you have to go to Holt for supplies but the peace and quiet in the area is worth it. Easy drive to local beaches. Would return again.

A lovely cottage, everything provided and plenty of comfort. We brought bikes and were delighted to find a lockable shed where we could store them. It was lovely to cycle along quiet lanes and see the villages in detail and find lovely pubs. Plenty to do locally in Holt, Cromer and Sheringham.

A quaint, cosy, little cottage with a secluded tiny garden in a delightful part of the country. Initial reaction that it was dark and unwelcoming soon changed once put some lights on and bought some flowers, Would use this cottage again, Lots to do in the area.

Comfortable small cottage. Road outside can be quite noisy during the day.

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?
