Sexton's Cottage

Set in the Norfolk village of Thornage, Sexton's Cottage is a charming artist's cottage, about 200 years old, constructed of brick and flint with a pantile roof . It retains its traditional character and is furnished in sympathetic style with period furniture . Rather than being the "standard issue" holiday cottage, this is a personal home, highly individual , with several unusual and interesting features. Thornage is an attractive flint village, typical of Norfolk, in the middle of rolling farmland, four miles from the sea at Blakeney and two miles from the lively market town of Holt. The village scenes from the film "The Go-Between" were shot on the village green.

The coastline offers a wide variety of scenery; long sandy beaches at Holkham, boat-yards at Wells, cliff-top walks at Weybourne and Sheringham, marshes (bird sanctuaries) at Morston and Salthouse, sailing and fishing at Blakeney and Cley. These are all within a few miles, while the Broads and the cathedral city of Norwich are within easy reach. A comprehensive file of information on the area will be found in the cottage, and a selection of good literature on the bookshelves.
