Staying at
Avoca Cottage

Quick guide to your location

Thornham village sits in the North Norfolk Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and visitors can enjoy excellent views of the coast from the chalk ridges that lie just inland, before descending onto the saltmarshes and beaches of the coastline. Thornham has an excellent array of pubs and restaurants as well as the shops, deli and famous fish and chips at Drove Orchards, which makes a great spot to visit and well worth dropping into as you meander down the coast.

A lovely break in a lovely area. Titchwell marshes well worth a visit. Enjoyed the walk from Holme to Thornham, good weather and somewhat cool some days. Enjoyed meals at The Lifeboat, The Chequers and Thornham Deli.


Thoroughly enjoyed our week, lots of cycling and walking. The ladies swam in the sea every day (Old Hunstanton was our favorite). We would recommend the Gintrap at Ringstead - fab food and we were lucky to have good weather!
