Coastguard's Cottage Thornham

Sleeps 10, from £1513 to £2794 per week

Coastguard's is a much-loved family holiday home, enviably located with stunning marsh, creek and sea views. Originally two 18th Century coastguards' cottages which have been converted and extended to make a fabulous coastal house with plenty of living space for up to ten guests. This is a perfect house for families and friends to share with a sociable farmhouse kitchen with an Aga and the advantage of two large sitting rooms and a downstairs shower room. Upstairs there are five bedrooms and a further two bath/shower rooms. It is situated in an idyllic spot well away from the road, with a large rear garden looking directly on to the marshes at Thornham and a front patio sun garden, only a short walk away from the coastal path across the marshes and out to Thornham's unspoilt sandy beach. Also within walking distance there's the choice of three excellent local places to eat, as well as Thornham deli, tennis court and children's playground.

This owner would prefer one dog only per booking.

Please note that outside school holiday periods there's an option to rent the house for reduced occupancy at lower rates
