Heron Cottage Thornham

Sleeps 7, from £505 to £1175 per week

Heron Cottage is a comfortable holiday cottage which is part of the Manor Farms collection of converted, traditional, 17th-century chalk and flint barns, set in their own well-maintained grounds in the heart of Thornham village. The cottage is ideally situated for those wishing to explore the delights of the beautiful North Norfolk coast, within easy walking distance of three excellent local gastropubs, Thornham deli and the coastal path. It is particularly suited for families with young children as the garden backs onto a large communal playing field with a children's play area and a pitch and putt course. On the ground floor there's an open plan kitchen and living area with French doors to the garden, and a shower room. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, one twin room, one single room with a truckle bed and a family bathroom. Please note that although this cottage has 8 beds, the living space is best suited for a maximum of 6 adults.
