Mallards is a comfortable holiday cottage and is part of a lovely range of converted, traditional, 17th-century chalk and flint barns, set in their own maintained grounds in Thornham on the North Norfolk Coast, an area noted for its natural beauty, wildlife and relaxed atmosphere. Mallards sleeps 8 and there is also accommodation for an infant in the cot provided. The ground floor consists of a kitchen, lobby and large living room with exposed beams, wooden floors, inglenook and wood-burning stove (fuel available at the nearby deli/shop). Both bath/shower rooms are also equipped with heated towel rails. There is also a clothes horse on site for drying clothes outside in sunny weather. Outside, the cottage has front and rear gardens. Sliding doors open onto the front lawned garden which catches the morning sun. To the rear, a standing barbecue is built into the wall of the yard, which catches the evening sun in spring and summer. Thornham is a charming, picturesque and quiet village, close to the old harbour and sea, and is surrounded by open countryside. There are lovely ancient trackways and coastal walks along dunes and sweeping beaches, with bird watching available at nearby Titchwell, Redwell Marsh and Scolt Head nature reserves. There are three traditional pub restaurants in the village which welcome children and serve excellent Norfolk food and real ale. Dogs are also welcome in the bar areas. The friendly village deli/shop provides for day-to-day needs of groceries, newspapers, etc, and there is also a bistro. A well-equipped play area is available near to the deli, which is a 2-minute walk from Mallards, off road and across a green. Thornham’s tennis court is available for hire at short notice (rackets and balls not supplied). Major supermarkets and shopping are available a 10-minute drive away in nearby Hunstanton, a charming old world seaside town with entertainment for adults and children, including beachfront amusements, fun fair, swimming pool, bowling alley, bandstand concerts on the green and a sea life centre. Further afield there are many old villages and market towns to explore, such as Wells, Burnham Market, Holt and the birthplace of Nelson, Burnham Thorpe, where the parish church lectern is said to be made from timbers taken from his ship HMS Victory. Nearby stately homes with gardens are open to the public, such as Houghton, Holkham and the Queen’s country estate at Sandringham. Brancaster Staithe is available for dinghy sailing, sailboard hire (tuition available) and boat trips, including seal watching. Two local golf courses welcome visitors. Fresh fish and seafood is available in Brancaster.

    This was the perfect cottage for us. My parent had easy access to easy access to everything they needed downstairs while we had the bathroom and bedrooms upstairs. The open plan lounge diner kitchen area was spacious and comfortable but also beautiful and homely. Having two outdoor areas both fenced off ment we didn't need to worry about our dog excapeing. Great beaches, restaurants and delis in easy reach. Owner has people locally to help with any issues too.

    Great location. Lovely local walks. Cottage is very warm and has a cosy feeling. Early morning sun in the front, afternoon sun in the back, ideal! Very safe for dogs - no escaping! Well stocked equipment and beds are comfortable and clean. Large kitchen table adequate for 8. Two local pubs, the chequers and the lifeboat provide good food although they are rather pricey! The only thing that could be improved is the lounge sofas, they have seen better days and are tricky to get out of as you sink so low however, I would recommend this cottage.

    You do need to travel to Hunstanton for your usual supermarkets (not actually local but they are close) however the Delhi and farm shop are good. All-in-all a nice place to stay.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review. Very glad to hear you and your group enjoyed a good week together. You are right to say the supermarkets are not on your doorstep in Thornham village. The information on the Mallards page on the website states clearly that the nearest supermarket is in Hunstanton, which is a 4 mile drive away. The local Deli and farm shop are great as they are so close and convenient, but families would probably not want to be doing their main shop in either of these as it would work out quite expensive. Part of the charm of Thornham as a village is that there are no large shops there, so it retains it's quiet village feel, almost as if you were in another world.

    Everything was fine and it was useful having all the cottage information before we went. It was convenient for beaches, RSPB reserve, Hunstanton and many other places. It had everything we needed for a family of 6.

    I received a call from the owner a few days before my holiday just to check that the instructions provided were ok, and in case I needed any additional information. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable, and the landscaped field was ideal for throwing the ball for our two dogs. We also received a welcome pack which contained a cake, wine, biscuits, and some milk/other essentials which was a very nice thought. I would highly recommend this cottage to everyone.
