Bramleys sits on the edge of Burnham Thorpe, birthplace of Admiral Lord Nelson and one of North Norfolk’s loveliest and most peaceful villages. Nestled in a stunning setting, the beautifully restored spacious brick and flint cottage is set in a picturesque garden, with masses of room for children to run around and play. Bramleys accommodates eight guests, six in the main house and two in the fabulous annexe, affectionately known as the ‘Loft’, which is a perfect haven just a few steps away from the main house.
The property has an inviting feeling of ‘home’, coupled with tasteful decorations and high quality furnishings. A place to relax in great comfort with wonderful views from the windows and glorious sunsets. The Loft, approached by a short flight of steps, enjoys an elevated, yet secluded spot with a magnificent vista over the fields and surrounding countryside. An idyllic retreat in a private undisturbed setting.
Burnham Thorpe is a quiet village just a few minutes from the coast, removed from the busy seaside towns and coast road but still easily accessible to the sea, whether it’s the beaches at Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea or the sailing at Burnham Overy Staithe with picnics on Scolt Head island or the seal colonies at Blakeney Point. It has a great playing field and play area for children in the middle of the village where you might see local cricket matches from time to time. There are walks you can take from the house in all directions to the coast, the Holkham Estate, Creake Abbey, Burnham Market or just around the village.
The area offers an extensive choice in gastronomic delights, excellent delicatessens and locally produced food from farm shops and local suppliers, an endless selection of pubs and restaurants in the area offering simple pub grub to more sophisticated restaurant dining. For the keen shopper, you will find a variety of boutiques and gift shops in Burnham Market, Wells-next-the-Sea and a bit further afield in Holt.

Thank you Bramleys for a fantastic week of food, friends and fun on the stunning Norfolk beaches, from bracing walks in the morning sun to cricket on the dunes. Bramleys has been the ideal cosy base for our adventures. We would love to come to stay again, not least so that we get a turn sleeping in the loft!The Wheelers, Hands & Sadlers - 25th August 2018
