About Thatched Cottage

Thatched Cottage is a holiday home with charm to spare. As the name implies, this period cottage in the Waveney Valley has a thatched roof, original oak beams, a pretty garden, and space to sleep up to eight people in four beautiful bedrooms. The owners have combined their artistic flair with a love of quality to create a welcoming place where you can enjoy a relaxing holiday with family and friends. There are lovely walks from the door, including a route to Bressingham Steam and Gardens and another to the 16th Century Kings Head pub in Lopham. With bookings available for holidays all year round, the only question is why aren't you there yet?

Quiet doesn't mean dull when you stay at Thatched Cottage, because there are many sights and activities to enjoy. Some, like Wortham Ling and Lopham Fen, are on the doorstep. Others, such as Thetford Forest with its Go Ape course, footpaths and mountain bike trails, are within a 20-minute drive. North Lopham is a pretty rural village in the Waveney Valley, right on the Norfolk/Suffolk border and within easy reach of Diss. You can go fishing on the River Waveney, play 18-holes at Diss, or tour Saxon village churches and other historic buildings. Other local attractions include Banham Zoo, the Boudicca Way long-distance footpath, specialist museums, and Diss Mere.

Days out can include shopping in Norwich, stay after dark to enjoy theatres, restaurants and nightlife. The beautiful Broads are just over half an hour's drive, and you can reach Aldeburgh, Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and other beaches on the Suffolk and Norfolk coasts in around an hour. Bury St Edmunds, Ely, Colchester, Ipswich and Cambridge are all within reach for a day trip - there's something for everyone no matter what your age or interest.

There is a monthly farmer's market in the village hall but if you miss this there is a great village shop in the neighbouring village of Kenninghall which sells over 100 different gins! Alternatively, all the amenities you need for a self-catering holiday are only a few miles away in the medieval market town of Diss. Friday is market day, but there's a big supermarket, an excellent deli and butcher, and a good choice of other shops and places to eat. It's so easy to relax and switch off when you're somewhere as wonderful as the Waveney Valley.

Accommodation Comprises:

Thatched Cottage is a detached property with accommodation over two levels.


  • Original beams are a charming period feature of the living room, featuring comfortable seating, a Smart TV, Alexa and a games console that can also be used as a DVD player.
  • Cook anything from beans on toast to a whole Sunday roast in the fantastic kitchen. It's a stylish blend of country charm and contemporary touches like the double oven and five-burner stove, big American-style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and all the essentials you would expect from a high-quality holiday rental.
  • More beams, stripped floorboards and a solid farmhouse table make the dining room a place you'll linger happily over meals. There are also plenty of books for all ages, board games and jigsaws in here.
  • One of the two bathrooms is on the ground floor. It has a freestanding claw-foot bath, WC and a handbasin.


  • Green Bedroom with an antique-style brass kingsize bed, bedside tables and reading lights and a garden view. A wardrobe and a chest of drawers provide ample storage.
  • Blue Bedroom with a superking (6ft-wide) bed that can be separated into two single beds if preferred.
  • Yellow Bedroom with two single beds and a cosy atmosphere.
  • The Pale Blue Room has a double bed and storage under the eaves at the other end of the house.
  • A modern shower room has a shower, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: After a busy day, relax in the outdoor 7-person hot tub or fire up the barbecue and pour yourself a drink. Kids love playing on the lawn, especially in autumn when the apple and pear trees are full of fruit. There is off-street parking for three cars.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are all included. A travel cot (no bedding), highchair and a stairgate are available on request. Two well-behaved dogs are welcome by arrangement. Short breaks are possible, depending on availability. Please note that the pillows are made of feather. Please let the owner know at the time of booking if you would prefer non feather pillows. Smoking is not permitted.
