Thornham is picturesque yet vibrant and is an old smuggling village right on the North Norfolk Coast. Wide expanses of salt marsh separate the village from the sea and it is a paradise for walkers and bird watchers. There are several great places to eat including Thornham Deli,selling all manner of local produce, cakes, specialities and great coffee (and breakfast and lunch too!), The Lifeboat Inn, an old smuggling haunt complete with heavy beams and roaring fires, is great for relaxed dining whilst The Orange Tree a great gastro pub. Head to The Chequers and enjoy a variety of dishes (although pizza and pasta are their speciality). At Drove Orchard's on the edge of the village you will love Drove Orchards, which started as a farm shop and pick-your-own-fruit farm, but which has now evolved into so much more! Now boasting a fresh fish bar, Eric's fish and chips (such a cool place) and Schucks restaurant which is housed in a yurt you will adore the diversity of this little village right on the coast. The beach, reached by a walk past the harbour and over the sea defence and over the salt marshes, is stunning and you will be rewarded by peace and quiet whatever time of year you are visiting. Outside of the village you will find other spectacular beaches; Old Hunstanton; Holme-next-the-Sea; Titchwell or Brancaster, where a few miles further don't miss probably the best beach in the UK at Holkham where you can also explore the hall and its vast parkland. At Wells-next-the-Sea you will adore crabbing on the quay or visit the seals at nearby Morston or Blakeney. HM The Queen's Sandringham Estate is close by as is the RSPB reserves at Titchwell and Snettisham, or head to the Holme marshes owned by the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
