Property details

This fabulous retreat is perfect for long weekend breaks with friends or family, or for longer stays throughout the year. Located close to some of the best pubs and cafe's along the North Norfolk coast, this attractive brick and flint detached luxury self-catering holiday home boasts four large reception rooms and three Super King-size bedrooms plus one spacious twin bedroom, all with en suites. With a New England feel, this house offers plenty of privacy and space to chill-out and relax in

Step inside The Gables and you're greeted with an impressive hallway with central staircase and galleried landing, from which all the reception rooms and four beautifully-appointed en suite bedrooms lead off.

Downstairs, there is underfloor heating and the large, sociable kitchen/breakfast/TV room features a range of base and wall units and large dining table with 8 chairs, which makes it a perfect room for informal dining. On sunny days throw open the French doors and let the warmth of the day in while you start the day with a hearty breakfast. With a big sofa and arm chairs to snuggle down into, this is a great place to watch TV and a film.

The boot room is perfect for wiping down the dog and removing shoes and coats, whilst the utility room has washing facilities.

Looking for somewhere to retreat with a good book or the morning papers? Then head to the delightful garden room which also boasts a chaise longue and French doors which open onto the rear garden.

The formal sitting room with its fireplace with log burner, is perfect to warm your cockles after a long walk, while the dining room is more suited for evening dining.

With three super king-size bedrooms and one twin bedroom, all with en suites and flatscreen TV’s and boutique hotel style linens, you are spoilt for choice on where to lay your head.

To the front of the property, there is a large gravel driveway and a pretty verandah. To the rear, the fully-enclosed garden is very private and great for alfresco dining or enjoying an early morning coffee. Because it is fully enclosed, children and dogs can play safely to their hearts content and the front garden can be secured too when the solid wooden gates are closed.

The Gables is very well located in this popular village; you couldn’t pick a better location for a short break or longer stay, with the beach, harbour deli’s, pubs and restaurants and farm shops and numerous shops all in easy walking distance.

The Gables holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Thornham is a great base for a holiday and is an old smuggling village right on the North Norfolk Coast. Wide expanses of salt marsh 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, selling all manner of local produce and great coffee, breakfasts and lunches; The Lifeboat Inn, an old smuggling haunt complete with heavy beams and roaring fires serves good food and ales; The Orange Tree is a lovely gastro pub which also boasts a dog menu no less and The Chequers Inn serves fabulous food and pizzas. The sandy beach, reached by heading to the harbour and walking over the sea defences and across the salt marshes is quite stunning and you will be rewarded by total peace and quiet. On the edge of the village you will find Drove Orchards, where you can enjoy dining at the renowned Eric's Fish and Chips or Shuck's which serves rustic Norfolk food in a yurt with a log burner which creates a fantastic ambiance! Otherwise buy fresh fish from Gurney's fish bar or shop for clothes or home decor at Nelle clothing and Joyful Living. You'll also adore the wonderful Drove Orchard's farm shop and pick-your-own fruit farm. The NWT Holme Reserve and RSPB bird reserve at Titchwell are both within walking distance or a very short drive by car, so if wildlife is your thing, you won't be disappointed. There is a fabulou links Golf Course at nearby Old Hunstanton which borders the sea and sailing at nearby Brancaster Staithe or Burnham Overy Staithe. And of course there are more beaches to be found at Brancaster, Holme-next-the-Sea and Old Hunstanton. Burnham Market, Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and HM The Queen's Sandringham residence are only a short drive away too.

Welcome hamper included

A complimentary hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.
