Heron Cottage on The Green Thornham

Sleeps 8, from £1225 to £2555 per week

Heron Cottage is a spacious detached much-loved Norfolk family holiday home, enviably situated in a peaceful coastal location in the highly sought after village of Thornham, away from busy roads, with easy access to the coastal path. Throughout the year, this is a great place to accommodate family groups looking for "no-frills" accommodation, having 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, with plenty of separate living areas for all generations to enjoy, including a lovely kitchen breakfast room with an Aga, large conservatory games room (with upstairs children's room) and a cosy sitting sitting room with an open fireplace. During the winter it's ideal for two or three couples wishing to explore the beauty of the stunning Norfolk coastline, with the advantage of being within walking distance of several excellent places to eat and drink. Outside at the back of the house is a lovely large south facing lawned garden with plenty of space for children to play or adults to relax, with ample off-road parking space for cars and boats at the front.
