Staying at
2 Holme Oak Cottages

Quick guide to your location

Thornham village sits in the North Norfolk Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and visitors can enjoy excellent views of the coast from the chalk ridges that lie just inland, before descending onto the saltmarshes and beaches of the coastline. Thornham has an excellent array of pubs and restaurants as well as the shops, deli and famous fish and chips at Drove Orchards, which makes a great spot to visit and well worth dropping into as you meander down the coast.

Loved our stay in this wonderful house . Amazing location, close to several beautiful beach walks. Thanks for a great stay

The Porter & The Cooper family

Had a great time, despite the weather. Hot tub was a great success!


This was the perfect holiday and perfect house. We loved all the beaches, two very tired 4 year olds and a dog.


Thank you for a wonderful stay! The house is beautiful and easily accommodated our guests of five adults, three children and 1 dog. We particularly enjoyed our walks on the different beaches. We will be back again! Its absolutely wonderful!

Lovely property! Wonderful birthday celebration property, loved the hot tub!


We enjoyed a lovely week in North Norfolk! Particularly enjoyed Sandringham and Holkham. Would recommend The Lifeboat Inn! Hot Tub most welcome after a long day at the beach!


We've had a great week and have enjoyed using the games room and the hot tub. Eating at The Deli is highly recommended, we also enjoyed The Lifeboat Inn and great seafood subs at The Crab Hut in Brancaster Staithe Harbor.


We had an amazing week in this lovely property celebrating a 70th birthday with family and friends. It is a superb place to stay, close to everything and we were blessed with great weather in February. The youngsters loved the hot tub and The Stagger Inn. Thank you!
