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...

Light, spacious, peaceful and well equipped lodge style house. We loved our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Probably the best holiday house we have stayed in. We really appreciated the bathroom per bedroom, and the spacious open plan living/kitchen area. The property is in a quiet backwater, but within easy reach of the North Norfolk beaches. We all agreed that we would like to return in the future.

Easter Getaway 2018

  • 5 of 5

Clayton Lodge is an excellent base for the family. It is really well appointed and every effort has been made by the Owners to ensure that all comforts are catered for with excellent facilities and 3 x Bedrooms with 3 x Bathrooms. I would recommend it to anybody and we will definitely be looking to return, if we can get in, noting its unsurprising popularity!

Wonderful countryside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Clayton Lodge. It was very clean and had all the equipment we could wish for. The breakfast left for us on arrival was a lovely surprise. Thank you. The lodge was in a wonderful quiet position. We saw pheasants, partridges and even the elusive barn owl!

Had a lovely meal at The Old Forge. We enjoyed visiting Wells-next the Sea, Cromer, Holt to Sheringham railway and The Thursford Collection. Thank you again for a wonderful holiday.

Gorgeous property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Clayton Lodge. The property is spacious, bright and airy, the facilities are exceptionally good.and the location is fantastic. We enjoyed sitting on the patio in the evenings, listening to the owls and soaking up the peace and quiet. There is loads to do within close distance. We found Holkham beach staggeringly beautiful and it is just 20 minutes drive away. We would recommend Clayton Lodge unreservedly and we would love to return soon.

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.
