"A lovely cosy cottage in an excellent location."

A lovely cosy cottage in an excellent location. It was quick and easy to book online direct with Thorpewood Cottages. We had a friendly welcome on arrival which included a homemade cake and a pint of milk in the fridge. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything you needed. The grounds are quite large with a caravan field and woods that you are free to explore. You do need a car to get around in and there are lots of attractions to visit in North Norfolk. This was our 6th visit to Thorpewood Cottages and we still found new places to visit. The owners are very friendly and always happy to help with any queries. We will definitely be staying there again!
