Discover the Norfolk coast from here, just 2 miles from Wells-next-the-Sea beach - awarded ’Best British Beach’ by The Times newspaper in 2016.

Hawthorn House is a dog friendly, family sized, semi-detached house built in 1948 from local yellow brick on former Holkham Estate farm land in a village still mostly owned by the Earl of Leicester.
The house enjoys a peaceful and secluded end of road position with the private woodland of two listed village properties on its borders; it is ideal for children and pets. The large rear garden of Hawthorn House is divided into two sections; a pretty patio area for entertaining and a ’wild garden’ where dogs may play. The property is situated in a quaint, edge of village hamlet made up of private and rented residential accommodation. The area enjoys plenty of birds and wildlife but as it is also close to Holkham Estate farmland you will see agricultural activity, works vehicles and hear pheasant shoots in season.
The dog friendly village pub and restaurant is just a 5-minute walk from Hawthorn House and was owned by Holkham Estate up until 1966. The village is also home to East Anglia’s best preserved Iron Age hill fort and the beautiful River Stiffkey valley. In spite of its very rural location, Warham is literally a 3-minute drive from the sailing harbour of Wells-next-the-Sea, with its narrow gauge railway, picturesque quay and lovely mix of traditional and artisan cafés, shops and restaurants. The whole coastline, both east and west, offer a collection of quays, marshes and breathtaking beaches, and whether you are relaxing on the beach in the sun (Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea both feature award-winning beaches), crabbing at Blakeney, walking at Brancaster or birdwatching on one of the many marshes, you will be spoilt for choice. Called ‘Royal Norfolk’, as this area is the country retreat for the Royal Family, and The Sandringham Estate, Holkham Hall and the Blickling Estate are all within easy reach, as is Pensthorpe Nature Reserve.
History lovers should plan in a visit to the medieval city of Norwich or the Hanseatic old quarter of Kings Lynn, and those seeking all the traditional seaside attractions, including a Sealife Centre and a small fun fair, should head to Hunstanton. With numerous walks and cycle routes available, and lots of great places to eat, you really will be spoilt for choice. Beach 2 miles. Shop 2 miles, restaurant 1 mile.

    Would recommend to anyone, good location, excellent amenities within walking distance. House very clean with everything you need and secure garden for the dog Owner very helpful Would definitely book again

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your recommendation and high scores; it was nice to meet you and your family. We always feel grateful when a guest points out that amenities are just a short walk or drive away as some reviews have implied that there are none which always puzzles us given how popular the village pub is and how close to Wells-next-Sea the location. We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday.

    Comfortable, well equipped house in a quiet rural location with friendly neighbours. First time ever that ALL of us were happy with our beds (we’re fussy that way) and no rushing to a particular spot in the living room because sofa and chairs were all equally comfy (with 3 bad backs, an important consideration). Quality of food and welcome in the Three Horseshoes (a short walk down a country lane) were excellent: daughter raved over vegetarian options, others over meat pies/fish. Sheltered front garden was a blessing for our dog in the extreme heat. House is 10 minute drive from Wells, and on a quiet cul de sac. No light pollution and clear night skies allowed us to enjoy spotting constellations. Very quiet and peaceful, enjoyed the bird song. A nasty review appeared just before we set off, and raised concerns - having seen for ourselves, can only assume person did not look at photos or read description, as house is honestly portrayed. Normal people live in normal houses, even in the vicinity of landed gentry.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; This is probably the nicest review we've ever had and it is so helpful that a guest has acknowledged the accuracy of the property description and photographs. We've had about three reviews over the past two years which have made scathing references to 'council houses' with obvious intent to insult the property and neighbourhood but we think they show the reviewer up more than the location so your comments are spot on. It is also rewarding for us when guests stay who are appreciative of nature and mention things like the lack of light pollution because this is very much a property for people who want something more natural than a commercial holiday experience.

    Well appointed house in very quiet area. Short walk to excellent local pub with food. Many good tourist attractions within a short drive.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for this lovely review and the high scores; thank you too for the nice card you gave me on the day of your departure complimenting the house. You even watered our patio plants. Appreciative guests make it all worthwhile; it was good to meet you all and hear about your holiday experience.
