Staying at
Dunes' Reach

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.

We enjoyed a couple of amazing days away with our second family. We learned so much about the Staithe's and where they come form. Fell in love with the gorgeous beaches. We look forward to coming back!

Had a lovely time, brilliant house.


'Thank you for a wonderful stay. We had a fantastic week!'


'We've had a wonderful time exploring the North Norfolk coast as a family. We loved the Sea Life Centre in Hunstanton and the beautiful beaches at Brancaster and Holkham but equally loved returning to Dunes' Reach which was brilliantly equipped and so cosy for us. Couldn't think of a better place to enter lockdown 2.0. We will be back soon!'


'Thank you for a most enjoyable stay. We were really comfortable. We love Thornham and Brancaster beaches and of course the Crab Hut in Brancaster Staithe.'
