Thursford is a small village with a big reputation being home to one of the world's most important steam and fairground museums, The Thursford Collection, which also hosts a spectacular Christmas show each year.  A great area for walking, Thursford Wood contains 500 year-old oak trees and the coastal villages of Cley-next-the-Sea, Wells-next-the-Sea, Blakeney, Morston and Stiffkey set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are only a few miles away; walk on the sandy beaches, bird watch on the marshes and eat at some great restaurants and cafes along the coast.  The nearby Georgian town of Holt is a must, as are the historically important villages of Little Walsingham and Binham, with its beautiful Priory ruins.  Also don't miss out on the grand houses of the region at Holkham and Houghton - there is much to see in this corner of Norfolk and something for everyone.

We really enjoyed our stay. Very relaxing location and well positioned to get to the beaches of Wells and Cromer as well as Holt. The closest restaurant is a Thai place which is superb but make sure you book. They do offer a takeaway service. A couple of great restaurants nearby in Langham (Blue Bell) and Little Walssinghsm (Norfolk Riddle and The Black Lion). We had very good meals in each of those. The cottage itself is comfortable and quite spacious and the kids and the dogs loved it as well.Mr James Knott - 4th September 2017
Lovely barn in a fantastic location with a really nice enlcosed garden for the dogs. Excellent for getting right across the North Norfolk coast - BrilliantMr N Willetts - 25th July 2016
