Thornham is a quiet picturesque village that forms part of the conservation area on the North West Norfolk Coast. There is a wide sandy beach and a small harbour, both of which form part of a local nature reserve. There are 3 excellent eateries in the village; an award-winning gastro-pub, a pub/pizzeria and an old smugglers inn and restaurant. There is a lovely deli/village shop next to the children's playground and communal tennis court. There is also a delightful farm shop on the western edge of the village, with the Yurt restaurant, Gurney's fresh fish, Eric's fish and chips and an array of other shops. The coastal town of Hunstanton is just four miles away, it has a sandy beach and many attractions for children. The Coast Hopper bus can take you to Wells, the RSPB reserve at Titchwell and villages including Brancaster and Burnham Market, an excellent opportunity to leave the car behind and enjoy the scenery.
