Old Lion Cottage Details

Old Lion Cottage is a charming holiday home located in the picturesque village of Thurne, in the heart of the Norfolk Broads National Park. Dating from the mid 19th century, the cottage oozes country charm and is part of a small terraced row of similar cottages with views out over open countryside to the front and rear. The location is ideal for exploring the Broads, with birdwatching, cycling, fishing and excellent walks all on the door step and the beautiful sandy beaches of the Norfolk coast are only a short drive away.
