The Experience

Constructed in the 1990’s in traditional brick and flint, this lovely cosy Norfolk village hideaway is simply perfect for a family of four or a couple or two looking for a great base from which to explore this pretty corner of North Norfolk.

There are two bedrooms (double and twin) upstairs along with a family bathroom. On the ground floor, the very well-equipped modern fitted kitchen has a table for two where you can enjoy a quiet early morning cuppa.

Next door the L-shaped sitting room has an easy, relaxed style, a dining area that overlooks the garden and a log burner to light when it’s a bit nippy and the nights are drawing in.

In the summer, open the french doors and stroll out to the south facing private courtyard garden, maybe open a bottle of wine and reflect on the day’s events.

Burnham Thorpe is quietly tucked away about a mile inland from the busy coastal road, but is within easy reach of everything you might want to see or do, be it shopping, walking, enjoying a fabulous meal out, birdwatching, cycling or just visiting nearby beaches and breathing in sea air.

If you decide to bring your dog along, there are some wonderful walks around this area that you will both enjoy.

Stretch your legs and from the cottage you can walk the quiet lanes into Burnham Market or up to North Creake Abbey, where there is a super dog friendly cafe.

Lovely stay

Thank you for a lovely stay at your cottage. We have had a busy four days exploring Burnham Thorpe and surrounding areas, enjoying meals at The Victoria Inn, the Hoste and The Wells Crab House and just relaxing in this beautiful cottage. Looking forward to returning.

This traditional Norfolk village is famously known as the birthplace of Horatio Nelson. History buffs will enjoy a visit to All Saint’s Church where his parents Edmund and Catherine are buried and you will find many items connected to Nelson and Trafalgar on show.

The fine Georgian village of Burnham Market is only one and half miles away, where elegant houses and flint cottages cluster around the village green. There is an excellent selection of quality shops as well as good restaurants and pubs.

Nature reserves are at Titchwell, Holme and Cley, and there are golf courses at Brancaster, Hunstanton and Fakenham.
