TRANQUIL RURAL VILLAGE, SUNNY ORCHARD GARDENS, NEAR HOLT AND COAST

Briston Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 5 plus cot. Charming 3 bedroom cottage (flint, brick and pantiles) with sunny garden and mixed fruit orchard. Beamed sitting room and kitchen-dining room, traditionally furnished (including harmonium). Bathroom and separate WC. In classic conservation village (with village green). Off the road, very peaceful location. Centrally heated throughout.

Sexton's Cottage is a charming artist's cottage with a number of unusual features. It retains its traditional character and is furnished in sympathetic style, with genuine antiques and a harmonium. It has a sunny terrace with fruiting vine and a large mixed orchard. Thornage is an attractive conservation flint village in rolling farmland, only four miles from the sea at Blakeney and two miles from the market town of Holt. The village scenes from the film "The Go-Between" were shot on the village green. The church is particularly fine and sheep graze in the churchyard.

Further details for this vacation rental

Note:

All the rooms are south facing and bathed in sun so the cottage is nearly always warm. For winter it is fully centrally heated throughout. The cottage is suitable for children and a cot is available, but the orchard and garden, although private, are not totally fenced.

Further Details:

No shop in the village, but villagers sell produce on stalls. Delightful pub in Hunwoth (1 mile) with traditional folk music and a real village atmosphere. There is a wide selection of excellent restaurants in Holt and the area , many specialising in fresh seafood. Holt and Sheringham have live theatre and the traditional end of the pier show at Cromer is nationally famous. There are shire horses, glass blowing (at Langham), windmills, steam organs ( at Thursford) several wild-life sanctuaries and regular chamber music recitals at Binham Priory.

Sea fishing is spectacular and boats can be hired to cruise in the inshore coastal waters, or a boat trip to see the huge seal colony on Blakeney Point.

There are celebrated golf courses at Cromer, Sheringham and Hunstanton, and several less famous ones within very easy reach, rarely busy.

Booking Notes:

Booking is by telephone or e-mail (our website has a booking form with a direct link ). A deposit is required at the time of booking, the balance payable one month prior to the rental period.

Chaotic and dishonest approach to rental

  • 1 of 5
We turned up for our week in Sexton's Cottage to discover that the owner was staying there and were informed firmly that we had made a mistake and we were expected the following week. Having driven from London with four children, arriving early evening and expecting a week of holiday, this was needless to say a terrible discovery. And more so once we got home and checked emails and realised that we had actually booked the correct week, which they had confirmed to us. There was absolutely no effort made to make any recompense to us, no offers of refunding petrol or money back for the hassle, not even a bottle of wine to await us when we turned up again a week later for the week that they had reserved for us. In fact they were missing a duvet on one of the beds and it took three days for them to suggest that they would pay for one if we purchased it (we'd arranged for another to be bought up from London by our son by then). They were dishonest and unhelpful and I would not recommend renting this property.

The cottage is tiny (the pictures make it look substantially larger than it actually is) and old fashioned, with an outlook onto quite a busy through-road. Bedding is grotty, the 'orchard' turns out to be a nice lawned area across a narrow shared drive on which you have to park your car as there's no alternative space. In its favour, there's lots of hot water and everything is clean and neat. And the owner's art is great.

We had a wonderful week in North Norfolk, once we'd got rid of the bitter taste left by the owner and manager's failure to accept any liability. The area is utterly stunning, the weather was gorgeous and we had a very happy family week on Holkham beach. I would highly recommend the area, but suggest that you look elsewhere for a holiday cottage.

Thank you.

Sexton`s cottage is individual and unspoilt by over standardisation found in some holiday cottages.
The description is good, though a larger car/SUV might struggle to get in and out past the brick shed to park in the (small ) orchard.
The inside of the cottage is charming and just right for relaxing after a day`s exploring around North Norfolk, birdwatcher`s and historic church lover`s paradise.
The information provided in the folders could do with updating!
Nearby Holt is excellent for food, books and art galleries.
Thornage itself is full of interesting houses but isn`t the easiest place to wander around, there being a slight shortage of pavements near the cottage.
I would definitely recommend Sexton`s Cottage to friends.
