A highly sought after coastal village on the Norfolk Coast within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A paradise for walkers, photographers, artists and bird watchers due to the panoramic views of the salt marshes.

Continue along to the popular boardwalk to Holme Dunes NWT Nature reserve with interesting habitats of flora and fauna from natterjack toads and migrating birds.


The village is notable as magnet for foodies and day trippers with seriously good shopping. Drove Orchards on the outskirts of Thornham has an impressive Farm Shop where you can PYO and is notable for its apple juice, fishmongers and a small selection of lifestyle shops. You may of heard of the ‘not to be missed’ Eric’s Fish and Chips, where you can enjoy a beer with your meal and children love the desserts, a fried jam sandwich, or ice cream where they can help themselves to tasty toppings. Thornham Deli, cafe and store is also great for a browse or bite to eat and it's next door to the Village Hall and play park.  There are also two great village pubs to choose from.:The Orange Tree award winning gastro pub, ideal for families with outdoor play area and The Lifeboat Inn, a traditional and atmospheric haven, often with a roaring fire and warm welcome for every guest including salty sea dogs.


Thornham is named after the Old English meaning ‘homestead or village where the thorn trees grow’. The village has a rich history and many of the buildings date back to the 16th Century. Archaeological evidence dates as far back as the Bronze Age. The village had a prosperous harbour 200 years ago and a fascinating story of a smugglers Inn and a bandit’s hideout.


Nestled between the villages of Holme-next-the-Sea and Titchwell both with bird and wildlife visitors’ centres RSPB Titchwell and NWT Nature reserve. There are many other villages to explore within a short distance like Brancaster, Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham with their great family beaches. Brancaster Staithe is popular with sailors and courses and lessons can be taken here or at Morston. You can learn to be a smuggler, explore the coast or sail the creeks with The Coastal Exploration Company, or take a seal trip to Blakeney Point from Morston Quay. Dalegate Market in Burnham Deepdale is a nice area to visit the shops or visit the quintessential village of Burnham Market where you can source most Norfolk delicacies from the independent and quaint shops that surround the village green.

Comfortable cottage well positioned away from the main road. Lovely big garden at the back. We are regular visitors to Thornham and managed to play mini golf in Hunstanton, visit Houghton Hall, great Sunday lunch at King's Arms in Great Bircham, day out in Burnham Market with friends. We joined Searles in Hunstanton to use the gym and outdoor swimming pool.

The Lamming's, 20th of May 2024

Lovely well equipped holiday home. Perfect quiet location on the coast with fabulous walks from the door. Within walking distance to pubs Thornham Deli and Drove Orchard great for food and shopping.
Walking the Norfolk Coastal Path from the door

McRae, 17th of May 2024

Great location in a lovely village. Highlights were walks along the nearby paths, and watching the barn owls. Good back garden.

The Pastor's, 13th of May 2024

Another memorable stay at 2 Hunts Cottages - really enjoyed ourselves. The wild geese flying over the cottage, the wonderful walks, the 'big' skies, brilliant meals out, the cosy feel of coming back to the warmth of the cottage after a day exploring.

The Hardy's, 11th of November 2023

Very comfortable cottage in a perfect position for dog walks. We loved being able to walk straight from front door onto the coast path, great Sunday lunch at Orange Tree, Eric's fish and chips, Hero in Burnham Overy Staithe and Dun Cow in Salthouse

The Seeley's, 13th of October 2023

What a lovely place to stay, with easy access to the salt marshes and coal shed and other beaches and places to see. The garden is beautiful and really good with the dogs as it is enclosed and the property position is really nice and quiet. The Orange Tree is a fabulous place to eat and the staff couldn't be more helpful. Walking around the salt marshes in a heavy sea mist. Seeing the owls in the fields opposite the entrance to Hunts Cottages - just wonderful!

The Wood's, 11th of September 2023

A lovely cottage in a great location. The dog walks were excellent as were the beaches in the area. Also lovely pubs nearby.

The Shield's, 23rd of August 2023

This is the second time we have stayed at 2 Hunts Cottages and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in the lovely village of Thornham. Our favourite place to stay in North Norfolk. The weather proved to be much better than forecast which enabled us to have good dog walks and visit the beach on several occasions including a couple of swims in the North Sea. The Lifeboat and Orange Tree were also visited more than once.

The Smith's, 15th of August 2023

We had a lovely week in bright, peaceful cottage in a great location.

The Moore's, 11th of August 2023

Our latest stay of several at this lovely cottage - bliss as always. Such a wonderful feel to the place, and ideally located for the delights of the north Norfolk coast. Thoroughly recommended. The peace and quiet, the lovely beaches and walks, great eating-out places and wonderful bird watching reserves.

The Hardy's, 30th of June 2023

Lovely cottage as usual. Really nice garden. I lost a gold cross and chain. It would be helpful to know if it has been handed in if someone could contact me. Thank you. Trips to the beach, Walsingham Abbey and Castle Rising, Holt and trips to restaurants. Very peaceful.

The Gray's, 28th of April 2023

The location of the house is excellent. There are walks from the door and resident barn owls in the field opposite which we enjoyed watching. You can walk to RSPB Titchwell in one direction and along the coast path to Old Hunstanton and beyond the other. There are 2 great pubs in the village, a short distance away. We had good meals in each. Drove Orchard and Thornham Deli are great for supplies but there's also supermarkets a short drive away in Hunstanton.

The Wright's, 5th of April 2023

Lovely house in a peaceful setting within the pretty village of Thornham. Beautiful weather, lovely village with local pubs and deli. Great beach.
