  • Idyllic getaway for couples or friends, tucked away in a picturesque hamlet
  • Walk along the old railway 1 mile to nearby Holt
  • Relax in the garden overlooking the water meadows
Property code: NCC56

Nestled within the pretty hamlet of Little Thornage, which feels straight out of a storybook, this charming and striking cottage retains many original features for an authentic countryside escape.

This delightful cottage lies just 1 mile from the popular yet idyllic town of Holt, in the rolling hills and open spaces of North Norfolk’s famous countryside. Little Thornage is one of the area’s most unspoilt locations, with the pub and water mill at Letheringsett (both within walking distance) the closest amenities. Enjoy a leisurely walk along the disused railway line to Holt, where you will find an abundance of independent shops, galleries, and cafes, or head 4 miles to nearby Weybourne and relax on its pebbled beach.

Enter the cottage through the side door and you will find yourself in the utility room, which houses a washing machine and dishwasher. Step into the adjoining kitchen, which still has the butcher’s hook from when the village farmer would sell his home-reared meat from here. The kitchen is otherwise modern, with a larder fridge/freezer, electric oven and microwave. From here, the property naturally draws you towards the inglenook open fire in the living room, which was uncovered during a previous renovation to the owners’ delight; there is now a wood burner in situ, perfect for those cool winter nights in front of the TV. Also on the ground floor is a twin bedroom and a shower room. Heading up the cottage style stairs, hidden behind an original ledge and brace door in the lounge, you will find yourself in the spacious first-floor suite, complete with king-size bed and a bathroom. There is also a second lounge area boasting views over the river meadows.

Outside, the cottage has delightful gardens to the front and rear. In the rear, relax in the south-facing enclosed lawns and breathe in the fresh country air. The front is where you will find parking for one car (or two smaller cars), beside a divine scented rosebed.

 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Great little cottage with enclosed garden for dog. Useful welcome pack and toiletries and cleaning products all provided. Note steep stairs to master bedroom and low ceilings. Great location for Holt and North Norfolk. Comfortable stay. Well equipped kitchen and useful utility room.

Beautiful charmingly quaint cottage. Surprisingly easy to find given its rural location. Well equipped. Stairs to bedroom are quite steeply curving with narrow treads though.

This cottage was ideal as it was so peaceful and quiet with walks to take the dog and a pub that is in walking distance .If you can't live without your mobile bear in mind that a signal is very poor but WiFi is provided.From the cottage you are not far from the beaches and things to do. Norfolk has lots of dog friendly places .

Smith Cottage is attractive and comfortable in many ways. My only suggestion for older people like ourselves is to alert them that the very nice upper bedroom suite is accessed via a tight and steep half-spiral staircase, which requires a certain agility! May be more suitable for younger and fitter people.

We had a great stay at Smiths Cottage. I cannot think of anything we wanted for. It was comfortable, well equipped and spacious enough for the two of us and our dog. We bought food from Holt to cook at the cottage and went on little road trips during the days. A total switch off from work and some enjoyable days together. Lovely, thank you.

If you want a holiday in a characterful cottage with all the trappings of our modern life, then I can recommend 'Smiths Cottage'. The place is centrally heated, has internet connections and is close to many interesting places both in the countryside and on the coast. We would love to return sometime soon.
