All of the bedding is hotel quality white bed linen, fluffy towels and comfortable mattresses and pillows.

Bedroom 2: beautifully presented with a king-size bed, bedside table and lamps, dressing table and chair, tallboy, free-standing wardrobe, stylish armchair, and a trunk. There is an en-suite bath room: with bath with shower over, hand basin, WC and a heated towel rail.

There is the advantage of Wifi throughout the house.

Outside

Whilst there is no designated off-street parking, there are no parking restrictions and it is usually possible to park outside the cottage.

The cottage is literally opposite The Orange Tree which has a lovely garden with outside table and chairs. The back of the cottage overlooks the picturesque church with its attractive churchyard.

Conveniently located within a short walk of the Norfolk coastal path and close to the excellent local places to eat, plus Thornham's childrens' playground, tennis court and deli/cafe. The Coasthopper bus stop is close by, giving guests the opportunity to explore the stuning local area without the need for a car.

Please note that due to the high quality of the fixtures and fittings, the security deposit for Churchside is £250 (rather than the standard £100).

Davies Party - 09/11/2017

Exceeded our expectations
A very high level of furnishings and decoration. I had also assumed it was on the main road, so was delighted to find it on a side road which was much quieter.
We had such a good time.
Sowerbys booking system is excellent very easy to choose and book. The person my wife spoke to the week before we arrived was friendly and helpful.

Thornham

Location

At the western end of the North Norfolk coast, Thornham is situated on the scenic A149 coastal road, roughly half-way between Hunstanton and the Burnhams. This is a village of fewer than 500 inhabitants, however it is now one of the most popular coastal villages in the area with its excellent selection of places to eat, the unspoilt coastline and nearby RSPB reserve at Titchwell.
There is a beautiful unspoilt beach for those willing to hike the mile or so out along the coastal path, but the characteristic landscape here is one of marshes and salt water inlets. Thornham had a prosperous harbour 200 years ago (particularly for smugglers it seems), and still has a small boat harbour today, as well as rugged Thornham Creek, which is a popular spot for artists and photographers. Down by the marshes The Lifeboat Inn, built in the 16th century, provides excellent food and drink throughout the day.
In the centre of the village, locally caught seafood  is served at the award winning Orange Tree gastro pub, opposite All Saints church which is an impressive building with 15th century foundations. Thornham has a third good place to eat - The Chequers Inn which serves delicious home-cooked pizzas and is ideal for families.
Thornham has a great range of local amenities with the excellent Thornham deli, shop and cafe, a childrens' playground and a tennis court.
Just along the coast road heading towards Hunstanton is Drove Orchards which opens seasonally for the sale of a wide range of locally sourced fresh foods from its award-winning farm shop and has an amazingly wide variety of pick-your-own fruits. 

One of Norfolk's best places for fish and chips is Eric's Fish & Chips (behind Drove Orchards) which is owned and run by a chef formerly at Titchwell Manor. It offers delicious freshly cooked fish and chips to eat in or takeaway.
