  • Perfect for visiting nature reserves and beaches at Titchwell and Holme Dunes
  • Ideal for keen walkers, birdwatchers, cyclists, golfers and nature-lovers
Property code: KT028

This traditional, spacious and cosy 19th century cottage is perfectly situated overlooking a quaint village green in the heart of picturesque Thornham, near the beautiful northwest coast of Norfolk.

The perfect blend of traditional English cottage and French chateau vibes, this ten-person, two-dog property offers friends and families a unique way to celebrate a special occasion or simply spend quality time together. From your morning swims in the private indoor swimming pool to midday fiestas in the enclosed garden's dappled sunlight to evenings unwinding in front of the woodburner, you can turn daily routine on its head and embrace every hour of the day. And, 1 mile from the coast and a few hundred yards from several eateries, you are never far from refreshing walks and handy local conveniences.

Home to five cosy, light-filled bedrooms, indulgent lie-ins will be hard to resist from this spacious coastal retreat. Snuggle beneath marshmallow duvets and make relaxation the day's agenda, allowing yourself to drift happily in and out of sleep. When you are ready to tiptoe downstairs, the kitchen awaits with the promise of fresh cups of coffee and mountains of toast for breakfast. A generously equipped room with lots of handy appliances, the kitchen uses a cool colour palette to complement wooden floors and pared-back style. Rustle up some treats and when all the gang has appeared, come together in the dining room where a large family-sized table has plenty of seating for everyone to comfortably gather around. If you are planning a day at your new home-from-home, the dining room leads to a pretty sunroom which is ideal for squirreling away with a book. Lose yourself to another few chapters before switching to the lounge, where a bay window, traditional woodburner and TV/DVD offer year-round appeal. While granny and grandad settle down with the TV times, accompany the children to the indoor swimming pool. An excellent feature, the pool is located at the rear of the house and accessed from outside. Featuring two changing rooms with showers and WCs and a 'pay-as-you-go' sauna, it's the perfect answer to rainy days. In sunnier times, the enclosed garden is great for dining alfresco and games with the kids and dogs. Enjoy delicious sundowners and raise a toast as the sun sets on another day in paradise.

The cottage is in a great location and village for exploring North Norfolk. The pool was a bonus esp on the rainy day. But the house and pool area are dated and weren't as clean as we would have expected. Decoration throughout is much needed. The front gate and wall are quite low for large dogs so we didn't let them out unless supervised as the houRead morese sits on the main road which has loads of traffic passing through. Had it not been for the cleanliness/decor, I would have given a higher scoring. Hide

Really nice place to stay. The village is very pretty and the pub directly opposite the house is perfect for a family meal / drinks. There is deli/shop/restaurant 5 mins away and a larger garden centre 2 mins drive away (not convenient to walk - no pavement).

Absolutely incredible holiday. Lovely village and pleasant walk to the beach. Highly recommend the Orange Tree pub opposite, Erics fish and chips shop and the Farm shop along the road.

Good location although noisy as right on the road. Comfortable beds, but overall very worn & tired. Swimming pool area really needs deep clean and some loungers or chairs in the area so you can use it fully. Sofa's need replacing or to be re-sprung at least. Ensuites are so small almost better not to have them. Having no welcome pack of the basics Read moreis poor, given the cost of the rental. Lags behind most holiday lets in North Norfolk. Its okay for a large property but not luxurious. Hide
