castle ruins with contemporary accommodation attached to it with lots of grounds Vrbo®, global expert in family holiday rentals, has revealed the first ever Vrbo Holiday Homes of the Year in the UK and a property in North Norfolk is among eight that have been selected.

The fabulous UK holiday homes range from the spectacular beaches of Cornwall to the quaint country living of Scotland and are ideal places for families and friends to stay together.All the properties can be booked through the Vrbo website and they meet a strict selection criteria, including a combination of 5-star ratings, guest reviews, number of bookings, Premier Host status (an invite-only program that recognises owners and managers who consistently deliver great traveller experience), and family-friendly amenities available.

"Thursford Castle, in Norfolk, has a proven track record of earning excellent ratings and reviews, and the host is dedicated to going above and beyond for their guests," said Karen Mullins from Vrbo. "More widely, in the UK, the Holiday Homes of the Year cater for a variety of needs and preferences, whether that's direct access to the beach, outdoor living with a hot tub or cots for young families."

Thursford Castle sums up a Norfolk hideaway to a tee - you really wouldn't know it was there, unless you were fortunate enough to be in on the secret.

Discretely tucked away between the villages of Thursford and Great Snoring, this property is the result of a magnificent restoration project of a romantic Gothic chapel set in idyllic countryside a 15-minute drive from the coast. Featured on Grand Designs, here, ancient history sits harmoniously with modern design. A wood burning stove and beautifully manicured grounds make this a place for both indoor and outdoor living.

Sleeps 8 (4 bedrooms), from £3,942.57 for 3 nights.**
