About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom brand new lodge in rural North Norfolk

Clayton Lodge is a new lodge style property set on our family farm. Set in a quiet and tranquil location on the outskirts of a small rural village, the property is one of a handful of lodges built on a meadow. With beautiful views over the surrounding countryside the Lodge is surrounded by nature including our resident barn owl, various wildlife yet only five miles from the spectacular North Norfolk Coast...

Wonderful location, spacious accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Clayton Lodge is set off the beaten track in spacious grounds with lots of interesting wild life outside the door, including many varieties of birds. It was very tranquil. The beautiful accommodation is well laid out with every possible thing you could need, and more! The owner made us feel very welcome and we look forward to a return visit.

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property. It is exceptionally well looked after, clean, very spacious and very comfortable. It is well equipped and everything is very easy to use. It has good outdoor space and is set back in a quiet and pretty location. The lodge is a perfect base for exploring north Norfolk and also the east coast. We found so much to do and were always pleased to come home to such a lovely house at the end of the day. Perfect family holiday home. Very impressed and will definitely be rebooking.

Lovely lodge quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Clayton Lodge. It's a perfect place to explore Norfolk. The lodge its self was very clean and tidy and large enough for than the five of us. We found many nice places to eat out and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Norfolk.

Excellent Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with Clayton Lodge; it's such a lovely place to grab some quiet time. Exceptionally well laid out and furnished, with good sized rooms and ample facilities. Excellent Wi-Fi and a good selection of Freeview channels but if it is not raining just nice to sit out and watch the local wildlife and the clouds roll by. Only small niggle and this is really personal preference; is that some of the beds are a bit soft and summer duvets would have been nice but no hesitation in scoring 5 stars

Fantastic, relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Ticks every box - absolutely superb - beautiful surroundings, modern and well maintained, throroughly relaxing from the start - it's what a holiday should be. The website pictures look great but when you arrive it's just so much better!

Spacious in every respect - comfortably sleeps 6 and then some. Modern fully functional amenities, clean and tidy in every area - yet with a tasteful decor that felt homely.

Owner provided superb customer service and with excellent recommendations. Very well organised too.

Would highly recommend to all friends and family and we will be returning as soon as we possibly can.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Norwich at 30 Miles Nearest Train : Kings Lynn at 28 Miles Nearest Beach : Wells on the Sea at 6 Miles Car: necessary

Thursford is located midway between the towns of Fakenham and Holt and only six miles from Wells-next-the-Sea. It is an excellent location for a holiday, offering visitors the chance to enjoy the peace and quiet of a rural setting but also providing easy access to the many attractions in the area. The village is best known for the Thursford Collection which is a unique assembly of steam powered engines, organs and fairground rides.

Local area:

Thursford itself is renowned for the Thursford collection a unique assembly of steam-powered traction engines, organs and fairground rides. It's also the unlikely venue every year for the hugely popular Thursford Chistmas Spectacular Shows which attract audiences from across the UK. It also has a cafe and wonderful adventure playground for children.

Our local town is the wonderful Georgian Market Town of Holt where you can explore the many antique shops. Alternatively the historic religious centre of Little Walsingham is nearby or slightly further afield the wonderful selection of shops at Burnham Market.

The coast is not far away, with sailing, coastal walks, bird-life as well as the big beaches at Cley, Wells-next-the-Sea, Holkham and Brancaster. The classic 'must-do' is a visit to the 500-strong colony of wild seals on Blakeney Point. The best way is on one of the seal trip boats that run each day on the tide from Morston or Blakeney quay... it's a lovely, sheltered trip and the seals are so used to the boats that you can get very close. Tickets can be purchased on the quayside or at the Anchor Pub in Morston but it's best to book in advance.

Award-winning Pensthorpe Natural Park is a 10 minute drive which is mix of meandering nature trails, beguiling woodland walks, and a showcase for British wildlife and nature conservation. As one of the leading Norfolk attractions, it's a brilliant place to visit, with beautiful gardens, spectacular wildlife and magnificent adventure play...nature's way!

The grand estates at Holkham Hall, Felbrigg, Blickling, Houghton Hall and Sandringham are within easy reach. Or try the vintage steam train running between Holt and Sherringham.

Local restaurants:

Our nearest restaurant is The Crawfish (1 mile), a converted pub serving great Thai food. Alternatively the Chequers at Binham (4 miles) does great pub food alternatively there is a restaurant and fish and shop The Norfolk Riddle in Walsingham (3 miles). The Kings Head, in Letheringsett (5 miles) and The Wiveton Bell (6 miles) are both excellent pubs and worth making a reservation.

Alternatively do try the Old Forge in Thursford serving excellent seafood or further afield the Victoria at Holkham or Morston Hall in Morston for Michelin starred dining.
