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.

The Clayton's, 27th of May 2024

It was a lovely property in a great location at Willow Lodge 2 bedrooms. The lounge was very nice and provided plenty of space.

The Hamer's, 23rd of April 2021

At Willow Lodge we liked the space, the walking distance to pubs for dinner and the secure for the dogs. 10 out of 10 for the cleanliness and 10 out of 10 for the garden. Already booked a return stay!
