Welcome to Holly Lodge Guesthouse
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.
Our guest rooms are very stylish and comfortable, full of unexpected extra touches. The gardens are delightful, featuring a pond and decking area and lots of hidden corners to relax in, making Holly Lodge perfect for a few quiet days away.
At the same time, it's an excellent base for exploring and enjoying all that the local area has to offer. The Thursford Collection with its well-known Thursford Christmas Spectacular Show, is on the doorstep. A short car journey (or reasonable bike ride) takes you to the the Georgian market town of Holt, Fakenham Race Course, the bijou shops and restaurants of Burnham Market or the historic religious centre at nearby Little Walsingham. We have bikes to lend you if you want to give car a rest.
The coast is not far away, with sailing, coastal walks, bird-life and Blakeney Point Seal Trips as well as the big beaches at Cley, Wells-next-the-Sea, Holkham and Brancaster. The grand estates at Holkham Hall, Felbrigg, Blickling, Houghton Hall and Sandringham are within easy reach and the area is laced with historic sites for those prepared to dig a little deeper. For retail therapy, nearby Georgian Holt is possibly the best small town in England for interesting shopping.
