Stay in this homely cottage and families and friends can explore all that Norfolk has to offer. Head to the coast and explore The Wash or head inland and spend a day at Thetford Forest Park.

Surrounded by luscious countryside in the medieval village of Thorpland, this stately yet comfortable country house is the perfect base for a retreat with family and friends. Sleeping eight across four bedrooms, there is plenty of space to celebrate a special occasion or get away from the busy rush of modern life. Spend sunny afternoons walking along the coast or relaxing on the beach - those with dogs will love the variety of nature reserves and parks nearby.

This charming cottage still retains many of its original features, from exposed beams to warming fireplaces. Put on your chef hat in the spacious and well-equipped country kitchen with a central breakfast island. There is a more formal dining room too, ideal for events or celebrations. Two comfortable living rooms ensure that everyone has space to relax, with a wood burner and leather sofas in the first, while the second has a further wood burner and plenty of comfortable seating for having a family film night. Kids will love the den, which has another TV and ample beanbags. Upstairs you’ll find four attractive bedrooms which have a more modern feel, and the shower room and family bathroom ensure you are refreshed after a day of walking in the countryside. Dine alfresco in the enclosed, walled garden accessed via the kitchen, and explore the 2 acres of land beyond which is not enclosed.

There are plenty of walks nearby, from Thetford Forest Park 18 miles to the south to the Wash National Nature Reserve 19 miles to the north. Spend a day out at Sandringham Estate (14 miles), wandering through 40 acres of gardens, as well as nature trails and woodlands.

We loved staying at Thorpland House. The house is charming and quirky. The kitchen was nicely equipped with a good size fridge freezer. The house has plenty of space for a large group to have their own quiet time with a lovely garden all around the house with lots of space for children to play n be secure. We would definitely come back again.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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?
