Thornham is a quiet picturesque village that forms part of the conservation area on the North West Norfolk Coast. There is a wide sandy beach and a small harbour, both of which form part of a local nature reserve. There are some excellent pub/restaurants in the village one of which won Good Pub Guide's Dining Pub of the Year 2017. The coastal town of Hunstanton is just four miles away, it has a sandy beach and many attractions for children. The Coast Hopper bus can take you to Wells, the RSPB reserve at Titchwell and villages including Brancaster and Burnham Market, an excellent opportunity to leave the car behind and enjoy the scenery.

Reviews

What an amazing week. Weather was perfect - lots of evenings sat in the garden - pizza oven (our own), BBQ, + a meal out at The Orange tree - highly recommend. We have been to Brancaster Beach - brilliant for dogs, Wells, Burnham Overy with a kayak, walked from Holkham to Wells. Coastliner bus a must to get about - pub lunch!! The house is a good size - we are 8 adults + 2 dogs. Plenty of bathroom space. Kitchen perfect - everything you need is here. Thank you for a brilliant week :)

Past Customer,

This was a great choice for us - house very comfortable and well equipped. We bought a book of walks but only managed one so have left the book for future guests. The Holme / Thornham one was great - we did it from 7:30 to 10:30 and hardly saw a soul. Other highlights - Beans Boat trip & Blakeney ( very helpful especially given limited mobility of my parents) and Holkham Hall

Past Customer,

We've had a great stay - thank you and thank you for the welcome pack. It's been great despite the extreme weather Monday Tuesday!! A very comfortable cottage

Past Customer,

Brilliant stay - and wonderful weather! Excellent house - very homely, spacious & well equipped. Definitely would recommend! Lovely welcome pack including dogs. Thank you! Loved the photos all around the house too!

Past Customer,

Very comfortable house in great location. Especially enjoyed the walk from Thornham to Holme Nature Reserve along the coastal path. Thank you for such a warm welcome

Past Customer,

Brilliant weather! Great stay, thanks.

Past Customer,

Warm and cosy, Jess has enjoyed finding the carved mice. This is probably the best equipped holiday let we've had. For the most part, a lovely week. Unfortunately a 'Royal' week so everywhere has been even busier, places booked up and the car park prices doubled. We do like Thornham though and will definitely be back.

Past Customer,

We had a wonderful stay in The Old Garage - Perfectly situated for exploring the Norfolk Coast (and right next to the pub!) The house is very spacious and well equipped - would definitely recommend and return!

The M,

Had a lovely week in the house. So nice and very well equipped. Monty loved his first taste of the sea (literally) and would love to come back.

Previous Customer,

The Old Garage is a wonderful place and we are sad to go home!

Past Customer,

We have had a lovely stay at the wonderful cottage. We would live to come back!

Mrs Gina S,

Thank you for making The Old Garage such a comfortable and cosy home. We had a perfect family holiday despite the very stormy weather - in fact, 3 storms. We all loved our stay, "home from home" and the dogs loved it too!

Previous Customer,

Lovely break to start off dreary January. Very blustery walk in muddy conditions. Thank you as ever.

Past Customer,

A very relaxing week in a lovely spacious house. It ticked all the boxes for the five of us, plus of course being in a great location - so handy for using the Coastliner buses. Weather was very good, lots of sun making many long coastal walks really enjoyable. Recommended the Orange Tree, Eric's Fish/chips and Pizzas, Jolly Sailors, Hero Inn and Crab Shed Hut at Brancaster Staiths.

Past Customer,

A perfect location for our staycation this year. Comfortable for the 8 of us plus our 2 dogs. The cottage had everything we could possibly need. Although the sun decided to stay away - we made the most of the local beaches and attractions. Thank you making The Old Garage such a great place to relax .

Past Customer,

Our latest discovery is Fakenham Thursday market which was brilliant with lots of local stalls and a huge flea market on the main carpark. Really worth a visit. House wonderful as ever - spotlessly clean. Thank you

Past Customer,

Depleted party this year (kids work) (commitments etc) so wonderful "please ourselves week" with lots of walking on coast path (overgrown) and beach time/swimming. Highly recommend - the 'Railway Inn at Docking. Friendly service and delicious food with actual veg

Past Customer,

A lovely week in the cottage. Perfect for our family to come and see us for a few days. We will be back.

Past Customer,

A great week had by all, walking the coast, drinking in the pubs and playing games in the house. Bus service very good for hopping on and off. Orange tree has the best food, Castle rising makes for a good afternoon's short trip. Beautiful landscape and house. comment

Our time here has been a blessing beyond imagination, lots of sunshine and lots of walks. Thank you for letting us stay so long.

Mr A C,

Lovely cottage, well equipped and exceptionally well presented, lots of personnel touches. We have very much enjoyed being in walking distance of the pubs (although still chilly outside) and to be able to walk to the beach from the front door. Excellent accommodation. Looking forward to a meal this evening at The Jolly Sailors.

Previous Customer,

Excellent home with lots of space and full of everything we could need and more. Favorite food places..White horse, Deli shop and Eric's fish and chips.

Previous Customer,

We thoroughly recommend the Old Garage. Spacious, well equipped, comfortable and presented with real care. All 3 pubs within short walking distance, also can walk easily from the door along the bank to the beach. Small but pleasant front garden, very secure for our small dog.
