Holly Lodge offers award-winning luxury bed and breakfast accommodation in the quiet North Norfolk village of Thursford Green. Based around a former farmhouse dating back nearly 300 years, Holly Lodge features superbly designed guest cottages in the old stable block with wonderful gardens and a magnificent conservatory for you to relax in. Just five miles from the famous North Norfolk Coast, we are surrounded by unspoilt countryside, historic houses and pretty towns and villages.
Tucked behind a fruit orchard, Holly Lodge largely dates from the early 18th Century with parts of the buildings going back to the 13th Century. Guest are accommodated in the converted stable block, following apparently something of a tradition... it is said that the stables were once regularly used as a stopover for pilgrims making their way to the shrines at Little Walsingham.
Original features have been uncovered and retained such as flagstone floors, beams and an inglenook fireplace. These are complimented by dramatic decor and furniture intended to make a stay at Holly Lodge an extra special treat.
But we'd hate for the design and decor to get in the way. We try to keep Holly Lodge relaxed and unstuffy, combining its style with all the facilities and thoughtful touches we can to ensure a trouble-free, enjoyable visit. Our guest conservatory has comfy chairs, newspapers, local maps and free wireless internet connection so that you can plan your day, catch up with the world or check in with the office while you're away.
A fine cooked breakfast is served in the dining room or terrace lounge in the very atmospheric period surroundings of the main house. We endeavour to use fresh, locally produced and sourced ingredients where practical.
Holly Lodge sits in an acre of grounds with an extensive landscaped garden available for the use of guests, including a large wildlife pond, jetty and sun-deck area.
North Norfolk is famous for its open countryside and big skies. Sparsely populated and largely unspoilt, its characteristic brick-and-flint villages are surrounded by miles of working farm land. Most of the coastline from the Wash to beyond Cromer is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, its unique saltmarsh habitat providing a haven for wildlife as well as spectacular walks, sailing and scenery.
The area has long been popular with holiday makers and is well served by good restaurants and pubs and offers endless opportunities for visitors, from quiet relaxation to traditional seaside fun.
