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.
There is a worthwhile and picturesque mile long walk across the creeks, here you will reach the often quiet, stunning and dog friendly sandy beach of Thornham Bay. 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.

A fabulous stay in a beautiful property. Immaculate with everything we could wish for. Superb location. Close to great delis and restaurants. Loved every minute . Great walk to beach and wonderful swim.

The Hartley's, 29th of August 2023

One of the best - if not the best - places we have stayed during a number of family holidays to North Norfolk.
Beautifully renovated cottage, stylishly decorated and very well equipped with excellent amenities and all you could need for a very comfortable stay.
Perfectly located with gorgeous wide views across the marshes and out to sea. A stone’s throw from beautiful walks down to the coast, countryside and nearby Deli.
Great walk from Thornham beach car park along the coastal path to Holme (great cafe and facilities) and back again along the beach - perfect distance for our little ones and a perfect family day out. Special mention must also go to Drove Orchards in Thornham and bike rides at Holkham!
Thanks for an excellent stay

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property.
