Norfolk's Hidden Gems Lists The Best Holiday Cottages In Thornham

February 14, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Norfolk, UK based Norfolk’s Hidden Gems recently published a new blog post on their website listing the best things to do and the best places to visit near Thornham in North Norfolk. The agency also highlighted a number of the most sought after cottages and private accommodation in the area where families can stay for a memorable and relaxing holiday.

Thornham is a thriving village and popular holiday destination, perched on the apex of the North West Norfolk coastline. During the 18th century, this coastline was notorious for smuggling when wool, tea, tobacco and alcohol were unloaded off the creeks at Thornham. Today, it is home to a number of top-rated pubs, such as The Lifeboat Inn, The Orange Tree Inn and Restaurant, The Chequers Inn, The Thornham Deli, Eric's Fish and Chips and The Yurt Thornham.

This means that holidaymakers will never run out of dining options since all the pubs and bars in the area are only a short distance from one another. Meanwhile, one of the best places to see in Norfolk is The Coal Barn, which is situated at the water’s edge in Thornham Harbour. It is surrounded by attractive views adjacent to beautiful marshes and creeks. Due to its outstanding, picturesque qualities, it has been the subject of countless paintings over the years and was recently featured on BBC’s Great Expectations.

Meanwhile, Kevin Conroy from Norfolk's Hidden Gems explains that holidaymakers will never run out of things to do in North Norfolk. He says that near Thornham there are beautiful beaches in Holme, Hunstanton and Brancaster, and the area is also known for its walking trails, salt marshes and bird reserves. In addition, golfers can play at the courses located in Brancaster, Hunstanton and Heacham Manor. Activities such as boating, sailing, water-skiing, windsurfing, kite surfing and paddle-boarding are also available to those who seek all manner of fun under the sun.

Thornham’s neighbouring villages also offer many places of interest that tourists may visit. Holidaymakers can take a short drive to nearby places like the highly acclaimed Neptune Inn in Hunstanton, The White Horse in Holme, The Gin Trap in Ringstead, The Ship in Brancaster and more.

“Norfolk has a tremendous amount to offer and caters for all ages and tastes. On the coast, there are wonderful beaches. You can also go sailing, canoeing, paddle-boarding and sight-seeing—such as the seals at Titchwell Creake or Blakeney Point. There are also sporting facilities like golf courses and tennis courts as well as great routes for cycling or walking and some of the best windsurfing and kite surfing spots in the country,” says Conroy.

He further recommends that explorers consider exploring Walsingham, Holt, Burnham Market, Blakeney Harbour, Wells-next-the-Sea, Hunstanton, Sheringham, and Cromer. These areas are concentrated closer to the coast, where most of the best holiday cottages are located and which represents what most people like about staying in Norfolk.

With regard to the best places to stay in Norfolk, the agency recommends three of the newest and top-rated holiday homes in the area. They include the Lyng Farmhouse in Thornham (sleeps 12), Sea Holly in Thornham (sleeps 6) and Sea Lavender (sleeps 6). “If you prefer a different location, we also pinned our recommendations on the map embedded on the blog post,” says Conroy.

Norfolk's Hidden Gems is a holiday cottage agency that specialises in finding great places for visitors to stay and amazing things for them to experience while in Norfolk. They are also currently developing a concierge service that will enable visitors to get the best deals at many of the top tourist attractions and special activities in the area.

Megan Howe, in a glowing Google review, says, “We rented a beautiful cottage and had a lovely weekend away. When we arrived, there was a bottle of Prosecco and some snacks for us, along with tea, coffee and milk, which was a really nice surprise. Absolutely gorgeous cottage and brilliant organisation from Kevin.” Similarly, Barbara Drummond says in their 5-star Google review, “I booked a cottage to take my friend, daughter and granddaughter, plus dogs. We were not disappointed. Good communication with the owner. Had everything we needed, and the hot tub was a bonus.”

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Sep 24, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Sep 24, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Sep 24, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Sep 24, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
