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.

Guest reviews

We enjoyed our stay at Willow Lodge, very comfortable accommodation for 8 people and 2 dogs. It’s location is great, within easy walking distance of 2 good pubs and the North Norfolk Coastal path. , great walks and the proximity of 2 pubs that serve good food. Also very handy for the deli and farm shop. The lounge area in the house was very sociable and had seating for all of us and a great dining space. We liked the fact each couple had a bathroom.

The Payne's, 8th of January 2024

Crabbing with the Grand children at Wells. Outstanding meal at The Orange Tree in the village

The Hotchkiss', 20th of October 2023

Lovely house, well presented and located.

The Sharpley's, 21st of June 2023

Another glorious Easter break in the well appointed Willow Lodge. Great walks and comfy relaxation on North Norfolk coast. Especially nice (and appreciated) to have Sky Sports! Thank you for the welcome pack too. We are regular renters of this property and love the arrangement of 4 nice bedrooms and airy downstairs. We also love the Thornham location and walks to the sea with our dog. It really suits our 3 generation family. Lots to do and enjoy locally - and despite a few showers, the weather wasn't as bad as forecast!

The Swift's, 26th of April 2023

The Reynolds Family, 24th of October 2022

The standard of the whole house is superb. It is well furnished, very well equipped and has high quality running throughout. This is the second time we have used this property and it is just perfect for our needs. A beautiful property and which we have very much enjoyed twice now.

The Hingley's, 28th of May 2021

Better than Expected. Previous experience with other companies have been rather disappointing so this was a lovely surprise We liked the en suite rooms and every comfort provided although kitchen implements not used as we ate out and had a rest Perfect spot close to our beautiful north Norfolk coast and villages. I am of course biased. I am 82 and have lived here all my life

Irene Collins, 1st of March 2019

Better than Expected. Beautifully furnished. Catered well for 8 people. Enough space for everyone. 10 out of 10 for cleanliness 10 out of 10 for the garden We liked each room having its own en-suite. Kitchen well equipped. Ample number of plates, glasses etc.
