Enjoying enviable far reaching views to the Norfolk coast, this unique holiday cottage dates from the Victorian era. Beautifully restored to an extremely high standard.
Entering the house from the front door you will walk into a spacious hallway featuring a striking original architrave, and very soon realise you have found a stylish, luxurious and rather fabulous coastal holiday house.
The Castle is a double fronted house. On one side is the light-filled, L-shaped dining kitchen with enough space to include a comfortable seating area; an ideal spot for relaxing, chatting and keeping the head chef company.
The bespoke hand-built kitchen features natural stone worktops, a large island unit and full-size wine fridge (absolutely vital!), and enjoys views to the coast from the front and into the sunny courtyard garden at the rear, through the bi-folding doors.
To the other side of the house is the sitting room which is a cosier, more intimate space with a warming wood burning stove to light for when the nights draw in.
Upstairs are three capacious bedrooms (king-size, king-size zip-and-link and double) and two roomy high-spec bathrooms (one of which is en-suite).
The two bedrooms to the front of the house enjoy glorious open views across the marshes to the sea in the distance.
Outside, the south facing garden is just the spot for a summer barbecue and enjoying a glass of wine while catching the last of the sun’s rays.
The Castle is an ideal base for a family, couples or friends looking for a special place to stay on the North Norfolk coast.
Enjoyed another lovely stay in North Norfolk with the family. We really enjoyed staying in The Castle. We come to this area a couple of time a year and have stayed in some lovely places - this is way up there. Immaculately decked out.

Fantastic - had a fabulous three generation holiday here. There was plenty of room for the six of us. The Castle is a beautiful house. Kitted out with everything you could need.

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!
