Captains Cottage is a beautiful self-catering property located on the west end of Thornham village on the North Norfolk Coast. With pubs/restaurants, a café, and a children’s play park all within an easy walk, and with panoramic views over farmland and marshes and the coast itself, Captains Cottage is great for a warm, relaxing getaway.
Uninterrupted sea views
Elegantly furnished and offering bright, spacious accommodation. On the ground floor, there are three bedrooms, a bathroom, and a utility room, complete with a washer/dryer. The first of the three bedrooms has a king-size bed and benefits from an en-suite shower room and WC. The next bedroom holds two twin beds, making it ideal for children, while the third bedroom has another king-size bed. For those wishing for some solitude, there are LCD TVs in each room.
The first floor provides a sizable sitting room with a vaulted ceiling and large windows which bathe the room in natural light. On the opposite side of the room, two sets of French doors open onto the balcony and the uninterrupted views over the sea and marshes. Back inside the sitting room, an electric living flame fire provides a cosy and tasteful focal point. The kitchen is also on the first floor and comes equipped with modern appliances. A beautiful bay window in the dining room, with its additional view over the coast, makes the kitchen and dining room a lovely place to gather at any time of day. Completing the first floor is the Master Bedroom. This has a 6ft sleigh bed, a reading corner, and an en-suite shower room and WC.
Outside, the gardens add to the cottage’s peacefulness. There is a small front garden, enclosed by a small wall, whereas the south-facing rear garden is fully enclosed and furnished with garden furniture and a barbecue – perfect for dining outdoors.
Close to coastal attractions
Captains Cottage has parking for four cars, but even though it is discretely located it’s not remote. The picturesque village of Thornham is just a short walk from the property, while the vibrant coastal town of Hunstanton is only four miles away. Both offer award-winning pubs/restaurants, sandy beaches, and attractions for children. The Coast Hopper bus is another great way to leave the car behind and can take you to Wells, the RSPB reserve at Titchwell, and other villages including Brancaster and Burnham Market.
One well-behaved dog is welcome. We are also happy to provide towels, a stair gate, and a high chair for your stay. On the weeks beginning 18/08/2018 and 17/08/2019, we will require a £500 security deposit, payable two weeks prior to the start of your holiday. Mobile phone reception is weak to variable.

Chris the caretaker was excellent and answered any questions we had. The property was so kid friendly everything was thought of from the plastic plates to kids chairs and high chairs. As well as stair gates at the top and bottom of stairs. And also a proper wooden cot was a bonus instead of a travel cot.Mrs Elena Nash - 23rd August 2019
Really enjoyable accommodation provided a great base for a fabulous holiday.Mr Mark Gaskin - 10th September 2018

Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend away. The property and location were fab.Miss Heather Wooderson - 1st March 2018
Returning to Captains Cottage after a break of a couple of years felt like coming home. The space and layout of this 'upside down' house make it perfect for a large family group and particularly good for lively young children. In a week of blue skies and sunshine we were drawn again and again to the amazing views across the fields to the sand and sea. Spotting a barn owl at dusk was also a highlight. The Thompson & Walker families Mrs Frances Thompson - 19th February 2018
We absolutely loved the cottage, found it to be very comfortable and warm. Would definitely look forward to staying again. Lovely and straightforward from booking, paying balance and being met by a charming man who showed us around and explained how everything worked before he left. Very impressive company, would definitely book with you again. Mrs Lorraine Littlewort - 5th December 2017
Extremely comfortable and ideal for family holidays with plenty of space to spread out. Very well equipped - a lot of thought has obviously gone into making it easy to relax - very peaceful despite being in a handy position for restaurants and pubs.Mrs Sandra Barkworth - 26th October 2017

Very impressive from booking to arrival and leaving.Mrs E Scerri - 27th July 2015
Captain's Cottage is a great base for a three generation family holiday. We loved the space and the way that the kitchen/dining and sitting rooms were adjacent to one another and a real hub for catching up with one another, even when cooking. The views across the marshes to the sea are stunning and in a week of sun and clear skies, were a constant talking point. The verandah was also great for stargazing.Mrs Thompson - 1st March 2014
The House was everything and more than we expected, Captain's is one of the best equipped and comfortable cottages we have stayed in. It is in a superb position for bird watching, coastal lovers and walkers.The Hulme Family - 2nd July 2011
Fabulous warm house and great accommodation for two familes.The Hopkins Family - 23rd December 2009
Fantastic time in this lovely house, well equipped and always warm.Mrs Key - 13th November 2009
What a fantastic house in the most ideal location. We have had a brilliant few days and a much needed relaxing break. The house is perfect and the scenery delightful. Food at the Orange Tree was incredible as was the more traditional pub food at The Lifeboat. We have enjoyed early morning birdwatching walks and afternoon strolls along the beach at Weybourne, Old Hunstanton and Brancaster.The Horstead Family - 22nd October 2009
Thanks for an excellent few days, pure peace and relaxation.Mr & Mrs Middleton - 10th October 2009
A lovely peaceful week in a wonderful cottage. Weather was perfect for an autumn break. We will be back.The Doggett Family - 26th September 2009
Having had such a wonderful holiday here last August we had to return. We had another great week in Captains Cottage in a simply beautiful village. Loved the beach at Thornham and the many walks. Also recommend the excellent food at the Orange Tree pub.The Scott & Jenkins Families - 23rd August 2009
Lovely house, beautifully equipped, even the weather was perfect.The Robertson family - 22nd August 2009
