The peace and tranquillity of present-day Thornham belies its interesting and sometimes fractious past.
Formerly a centre for trading and seafaring, the village was also once used by the Romans as the perfect place to keep tabs on nearby Brancaster Bay. Latter centuries brought heated conflicts between smugglers until the harbour finally silted up and ceased to be in the early 20th century.
The 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. Sandwiched between the reserves at Holme and Titchwell, you may also see a wide range of nationally scarce species, such as Marsh Harriers, Barn Owls and Avocets. By following the North Norfolk coastal path, you will be taken to either reserve or far beyond to the east or the west.
Thornham also plays host to two of the county’s most recognised eateries; The Orange Tree and The Lifeboat Inn. In recent years, The Orange Tree has been the recipient of numerous awards including; Norfolk Dining Pub of the Year and Seafood Pub Chef of the Year. The Lifeboat has recently been taken over by new management and the 16th century coaching inn looks to be in secure hands. The Chequers Inn is a third option within walking distance from Beauford House, here you will find fantastic catering, especially for families.
On the edge of the village you will also find Drove Orchards. Set across 350 acres of orchards and farmland, the site plays host to a local fishmonger, lifestyle shops, greengrocer, Shucks restaurant and Eric’s Fish and Chip shop. A great place to gather lcoal supplies!
