Perfectly situated in the heart of the popular village of Thornham, this small, cosy cottage is perfect for exploring the Norfolk coast, and is close to beautiful beaches and the Titchwell bird reserve.

Lovely cottage. Just perfect for our stay. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage. The kitchen was well equipped albeit there were no matches to light the fire. Once lit the fire was lovely. Def recommend this cottage.

A lovely cottage, well equipped in a great location.

Reviewed by Alison 23rd August 2019

The cottage is in a nice location and pleasantly furnished although the kitchen should have a large fridge, best for a group who don`t intend to cook. The outside space is very small and of course has no privacy as its next the shared parking area. Also not enclosed so not best for young children. This is a lovely part of Norfolk for a holiday.

Lovely cottage , garden very small no good for pets

Reviewed by Martin 3rd May 2019

We found the house clean and tidy, its an excellent location in a very nice village with good local pubs/restaurants. Good size bedrooms, car parking at the rear of the property in a courtyard means you can park off road and load/unload car. Outside patio and bushes a little untidy and some equipment not working inside the property which should be Read morepicked up on pre-inspection. A good property in a very good location, just needs a more thorough inspection before arrival. Hide

Beautiful location and great walks from front door. Deli and farm shop in village. Beds were amazingly comfortable and all rooms appointed with drawers and storage so easy to unpack. Great foody pubs in village. For me the lounge was very dark with daylight only from stairwell and window in front door- but I am very light sensitive.

Ideal mini break for a small family or couple, with or without dog. Short drive to Burnham and Brancaster so location is ideal

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?
