Ivy Cottage (Thornham) holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Thornham is an old smuggling village right on the North Norfolk Coast and now is one of the most popular villages to holiday for a short break or longer stay.
Wide expanses of saltmarsh separate the village from the sea and it is a paradise for walkers and bird watchers.
There are several great places to eat including Thornham Deli which sells all manner of local produce and great coffee, cake, breakfasts and lunches.
The Lifeboat Inn, an old smuggling haunt, complete with heavy beams and roaring fires, is delightful any time of year and The Orange Tree is a lovely gastro pub.
Enjoy pizza and pasta at The Chequer's before heading off to the beach for the day which is reached by walking over the sea defence and across the salt marshes. You'll be rewarded by peace and quiet and a stunning sandy beach where you can escape from everyday life.

This is a lovely, comfortable and well equipped cottage. The garden is particularly beautiful and our children loved playing there. The village of Thornham is a fabulous place with great facilities and close to lovely beaches.

Excellent in every way, including the fact that my disabled husband managed well and we both had a great holiday.

The weather wasn't very good but Ivy Cottage went a long way to making up for that. It is very well appointed and equipped - the owners have thought of just about everything. In fact we came armed with a range of household items - cleaning materials, etc - but took almost all of them home unused. The cottage is in a great location within easy walking distance of three pubs/restaurants and the Thornham Deli. Obviously off-road parking would have helped but having said that, we were able to park nearby quite easily. Comfort in the cottage was excellent and it was extremely clean - we settled in straight away and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will certainly rent it again in the future.

We had a fabulous stay at Ivy Cottage, it really feels like a home from home. The cottage is well equipped with quality fixtures and fittings. The garden is beautiful and perfect for enjoying summer evenings. I would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone visiting North Norfolk.

Just returned from a lovely weekend at Ivy Cottage. Situated in a lovely little village with some lovely pubs, two of which are only yards away and coastal hopper which comes in very handy (bus that runs every half hour) The property was clean and tidy but what made it for us was the kitchen area leading out onto the garden. We spent virtually all our time at home in the garden due to it being so beautifully kept. I have to admit we didnt like the living room so much as we found it quite dark but that maybe just us.Beds were very comfy and a luxury to have 2 bathrooms plus a seperate toilet. We found everything we needed as far as cooking and eating in. All in all a lovely place to spend a weekend.

A weekend away We hired Ivy Cottage for a much needed weekend away with our children and my parents. What a beautiful cottage it is, extremely well equipped and well loved. A superb location that allowed us to all be able to go out together for a delicious early evening dinner at The Orange Tree just along the street. For us the best and our favorite cottage that we have hired through Norfolk Hodaways. Why? Whoever owns this little gem in Thornham really loves it and so did we.

This was our second stay at Ivy Cottage as we very much enjoyed the first. In a brilliant location for activities by the sea and walking distance to village facilities. A very comfortable cottage which is well equipped and a home from home. Ivy cottage was always nice to return to after a day out or to pop back to to have lunch. The lovely garden was perfect for enjoying the spring sunshine and playing in. Thornham is now a favourite due to the closeness of fantastic beaches, landscape, wildlife and great places to eat. Sunday lunch at The Orange Tree is not to be missed! The Deli and Orchard farm shop are packed with goodies and Eric cooks up a fine Fish & Chip's! All enough to keep Grandchildren, parents and Grandparents satisfied! Why stay anywhere else?
