Westgate Cottage (Thornham) holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Thornham 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 The Village Deli,selling all manner of local produce and great coffee, The Lifeboat Inn, an old smuggling haunt complete with heavy beams and roaring fires, The Orange Tree a gastro pub and The Coach House selling pizza and pasta. The beach, reached by a walk over the sea defence over the salt marshes, is stunning and you will be rewarded by peace and quiet!

Guest reviews

We visited the cottage last week and all we can say is wow! The cleanliness was above and beyond the layout was fantastic especially having young children. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything you need. The house was fully equipped my young grandchildren providing them with games, toys and films. The beds were absolutely amazing (so comfortable) location was good and close to all amenities needed, 5 minutes drive to Hunstanton beach front. Will most definitely re book to stay again.

Arrived to find a welcome bottle awaiting us,Then explored the excellent facilities.Location so near to good eating places was a bonus.Parking area ample for our three cars.The cottage was spotless and the conservatory ideal for curling up on one of the sofas with a favourite book.The garden was a place suited to two little boys to burn off some energy.We all loved Westgate Cottage and Thorham where we had not stayed before.This is the sixth house we have booked with Norfolk Hideaways and we have never been disappointed

Perfect for our stay in North Norfolk. What a wonderful cottage everything you could possibly need inside and a lovely garden to enjoy as well. We had four generations in our party ranging from a 3 year old to an 83 year old and everyone thought the place was amazing. Would highly recommend it .

Home from home. Great house for a family stay, plenty of room for everyone. Very child friendly being all on one floor the kids loved it. Very handy for Hunstanton, Holkham Hall and Wells next the sea. Nothing to complain about and will be back next year.

Lovely setting and location, well equipped spacious family cottage. Well equipped spacious cottage with a lovely secluded garden, plenty of room for the children to run round. Also good to have a large family gas barbecue. Very quiet location with a shared private drive leading to the property with plenty of parking for three cars. In our party was an allergy sufferer, this is one of the reasons we choose this cottage as there was no dogs and hard floors in main living quarters. All beds were very comfortable and the cottage was very clean on arrival. There are three good pubs serving food within 5 minutes walking distance and a café deli shop. I would recommend this cottage.

Great comfortable house in lovely location. This house was really comfortable, well maintained and had everything you would need for a great holiday with the family. Has the space for 8 people adequately but still had a feeling of togetherness being all on one level . It’s has a lovely garden . It is really quiet and very relaxing .

Perfect in every way! We fell in love with Westgate Cottage the first time we stayed there. We have stayed a further two times and, although I'm sure there are many lovely properties in Thornham, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else because, for us, it's just perfect. It is a thoughtfully designed, spacious property, furnished and equipped to a very high standard. It is well maintained and spotlessly clean. The large garden has a good sized patio for outside eating and plenty of lawn for little ones to play. Each of our visits have been over Easter and the garden provides the ideal place for an Easter egg hunt!

We've spent a lovely Christmas week in Westgate Cottage. Everything we needed was provided, thank you. Sophia was a bit worried Father Christmas might not find her here but guess what - he did!

A beautiful place to spend a bright autumnal family weekend. Lovely part of Norfolk to explore, with good pub grub round the corner. We have really enjoyed our short stay here and would certainly return again. The cottage is beautifully presented with attention to every detail. This makes staying here even more perfect. Thank you.

Three generations of us too! Wonderful cottage and garden with everything we could want for a great holiday for all of us. Really good weather so spent a lot of time on the beach but also visited the RSPB site. Shopped at Burnham Market (pottery, painting and shopping) and visiting Wells. Very good meals at The Lifeboat, Erics and The Chequers. Fantastic and hope to be back!

Absolutely wonderful house and garden, we didn't want to leave. We all would like to live here forever. The house is large enough for big families but cosy enough to make you all feel welcome. The garden was really great and secure for our 3 grandchildren to play in, they absolutely loved it. The TV in every bedroom was a bonus as it wasn't mentioned in the details. There was everything you could ever need with extra touches which we much appreciated. You won't be disappointed if you stay here. The kids took over the conservatory and loved the toys and books. There was 3 families in our party but with all the bedrooms and bathrooms we all had plenty of space. Great house we hope to go back again soon.

Stayed here for a week with our children and grandchildren in October. Lovely cottage, parking for 3 cars, wood burner gave a real homely feel. Games room for the grandchildren, lovely garden, quiet position yet handy for pubs, play area and deli. The Orange Tree restaurant/pub was excellent, and only a short walk away. Well-equipped kitchen, and all in very good condition. Would especially recommend for families.

Superb bank holiday weekend. House is fabulous with comfortable beds - perfect for R&R! Great to have toys available - our girls loved them! Garden is beautiful and so nice and safe for young children to just play. Enjoyed beaches at Brancaster and Holme, lunch at The Hoste, dinner at The Orange Tree and lunch at Thornham Deli.
